Plumbing leaks often occur inside walls, ceilings, attics, and often times under floors. In many cases, the only way a leak becomes apparent is when your water bill shows up in the mail. Leaks often show up as stains on sheetrock ceilings, wet spots in walls or on carpeting. In cases of external damage it can be discovered via soft patches in the yard. Locating these leaks and their sources can be tedious and frustrating work without the right training and equipment. This is preciously why homeowners need a reliable Atlanta leak detection professional.
We, at Ridgeway Mechanical, offer complete Atlanta leak detection and location services as part of our wide range of specialities. Using the most sophisticated equipment, we are able to pinpoint with incredible accuracy the source of the leak. Whether it is behind a wall or under a concrete slab, our leak detection equipment will instantly find the problem by using a high-frequency listening device to zero in on minute pressure differences within the pipes. The pressure differentials are often caused by tiny pinholes or splits in the piping that would be otherwise undetectable by the human ear. When tap water in the house is unused, any faucets and other machines that run on water should have silent piping.
Any hissing or other small noises are indicative of a leak. In locating the source of the noise we are able to access the area and expose the leak. Accuracy of the equipment we use is high, with most leaks being detected within 6 inches of their exact location! On some occasions where multiple leaks are present, with the help of this equipment we are able to pinpoint all problem areas simultaneously.
Prices for these services are fair and competitive and will be applied toward the cost of your leak detection repair. Should you choose to have us complete the work you will not be disappointed.
In many cases, home insurance covers the cost of the repairs performed as a result of these plumbing leaks. Individual insurance policies vary, however, so be sure to check before you assume they will help. And as always, all of our repairs include a 12 month warranty (not applicable with polybutylene repairs).
