Leak detection in Tucson is crucial if you are looking to avoid high water bills. Taz Plumbing is equipped to help you find and fix many leaks including:
Water Line Leaks
Water line leaks can happen in the house, under a house slab or outside the house underground. Detecting leaks in pipes is easier than finding them in swimming pools. A non-expert can typically see pools of water if the leak is located above ground. However, leaks below ground can be more difficult as these can sometimes only be noticed when there is already a severe problem. A small leak can be left unnoticed unless water pressure testing is done. Locating more severe water line leaks underground is also not easy even after noticeable damage to the property around it.
Only an experienced plumber should handle pipe problems. Easily detected leaks with pipes below the sink or on obvious locations, may not need special leak detection equipment, but you still should hire a professional plumber to fix them correctly.
Shower and Faucet Leaks
Leaking showers and faucets are one of the other biggest causes of water leaks. Most people make every effort to ensure that the water stops running when they shutoff their shower or faucet; however, water may start trickling out seconds after the person leaves the room.
A slow leaking faucet or shower head can leak close to 500 gallons of water, and a big leak can leak over 12,000 gallons per month.
Toilets are one of the most common leak sources because of the amount of water that flows through them every day. Most people would be stunned at how much money a leaking toilet could be costing them. A slow leak can waste over 200 gallons per month while a major leak can exceed 50,000 gallons per month.
Regardless of what the water rate is in different cities, wasting just one gallon is too much. Homes that use well systems can find higher electric bills as the pumps have to continuously kick on to fill the tank.
A leaking toilet may produce a hissing or trickling sound that usually lasts for a substantial amount of time after the toilet has been flushed. If people hear this noise or suspect there is a leak, you should not hesitate to call a professional plumber to diagnose the problem and fix it before too much water is wasted.
