Electronic Leak Detection
Are you experiencing low water pressure? You might have leaky pipes
The professionals at Dunedin Plumbing are experts in the use of electronic leak detection technology. Unlike a lot of our competition, all our electronic leak detection is done in house by 2 dedicated technicians who focus almost solely on leak detection. The benefit of electronic leak detection is that it is minimally invasive. We can locate the source of a leak behind a wall, under a concrete floor, or in the ground. We employ thermal heat guns to locate hot water leaks as well as moisture meters to detect leaks in walls or cabinets. This saves time and money while minimizing the need to open walls and flooring. Since 1972 Dunedin Plumbing has served the plumbing needs of Dunedin Florida and the surrounding area. We want to be your “Go To Plumbers”.
How Does Electronic Leak Detection Work?
Whenever water is moving through the pipes of your home it makes distinctive sounds. Water moving cleanly through pipes emits one kind of sound. Dripping water, or water that is escaping from a broken or cracked pipe emits another kind of sound. This acoustic signature or frequency can be detected by electronic leak detection equipment. A transducer in the leak detection equipment picks up these frequencies and then conveys it back to the plumber. Our leak detection technicians can then properly identify the location and severity of the leak. The leak detection equipment is so sensitive our plumbers can interpret these sounds and diagnose if they are dealing with a broken gasket, a simple leak, or a cracked pipe. They can also determine exactly where the leak is located.
The Benefits of Using Electronic Leak Detection Technology
Let’s assume you think you have a leak behind your shower wall. Without the use of electronic leak detection technology, plumbers had no choice but to rip open the shower wall only to find there was no leak. This process could potentially be repeated again and again in an effort to locate the leak. Our experts can now locate a leak even if it’s many feet away. With our technology, we’ll locate the leak the first time. While this will still require opening a hole in the wall or floor to repair the leak, there will only be one hole to patch instead of many. In the long run, you can save many hours of labor costs and not have to deal with costly repairs in multiple locations.
