Hidden water leaks can sometimes develop for months or years before you finally realize something is wrong. Don’t let the problem sit in your home for years! Know the signs of water leaks so you can get the issue resolved as quickly and possible and regain the peace of mind you deserve.

Taking the time to perform routine check-up on your plumbing can help you avoid emergency situations and added stress down the road. Here are common symptoms of water leaks to look out for:

  • Flooring that is starting to sag
  • Sudden increase in your water bill
  • Wet marks or discoloration on the ceiling
  • Bumps or bubbling on your wallpaper
  • Sound of running water is often heard
  • Water meter keeps running even though water is turned off
  • Mold, mildew, or musty odors present in certain rooms or areas

These problems may signal a pipe leak in the water lines that run inside your home. Call your Culpeper County water leak detection experts from Culpeper Home Services to have the problem checked out. We use the latest leak detection technology to pinpoint problem areas and provide pipe repair or repiping to get your plumbing back to normal.


Why Leaking Pipes Need to Be Fixed ASAP

Leaking water lines should not be treated like a faucet leak. Even a small pipe leak can drive up your water bill, create ideal conditions for mold growth, and perhaps even weaken your ceiling or floors if left unattended long enough.

Hidden leaks are serious plumbing problems that can damage your home and result in costly restoration services.

  • Leaking pipes that suddenly burst can lead to flooding in your home
  • Mold and mildew due to excess moisture can affect your health
  • Slab leaks under your foundation can weaken your home’s structural integrity
  • Wastewater leaking out of sewer lines can pool in your yard and create unwanted odors
  • A significant amount of water is wasted, putting a large burden on your monthly water expenses

Our Leak Detection Methods

Before carrying out repair or repiping services, we will need to locate and identify the source of the leak. This is done using a variety of leak detection methods.

Infrared camerasThis method traces water movement and determines water temperature. Infrared cameras won’t be able to identify the exact location of the leak, but it works as an ideal companion to other methods such as acoustic leak detection.

Acoustic leak detectorsTracking leaks through sound is an effective way to pinpoint problems areas. Sensors in the device capture sound in the water lines; wherever the sound is loudest is where the leak is located.

Gas tracersWhen acoustic devices are unable to locate the leak (perhaps due to a deep pipe), we will use gas tracers. During this process, a combination of nitrogen and hydrogen is inserted into the pipeline (don’t worry, it’s not toxic and won’t harm your pipes or your drinking water). A sensor then traces where the gas escapes—this is the site of the leak. 

At Culpeper Home Services we respect your property and only perform non-invasive leak detection. Once the leak is identified, we will go over your options for repair or replacement and make sure your plumbing returns to normal as quickly as possible!
