Leak Detection in the Deptford Township, NJ Area

Water from leaking pipes can cause significant damage to your home and property. An undetected leak beneath a floorboard or inside a wall can destroy drywall, joists, molding, furniture, and carpets. Even when a homeowner sees the water damage from the leak, finding the source is not always easy.

The Deptford Township, NJ leak detection experts at SPS Mechanical Inc. have the training and equipment to quickly locate the source of the leak. That’s important because the evidence of the leak – such as a puddle, a stain on the ceiling, or crumbling drywall – may be far away from the actual source of the leak. Our certified plumbers know how to avoid causing unnecessary damage searching for the broken pipe or joint. They locate the source as efficiently as possible and perform a repair that’s durable to provide lasting results.

Sources of Plumbing Leaks

Plastic pipes used for plumbing can also fail. The junctures of the pipes may not have been cemented properly, or the pipes may have been misaligned or not cut correctly. In some instances, the installer may have cracked a plastic pipe, but patched it with cement. Over time, the patch may come loose. Be sure to have one of the professional plumbers at SPS Mechanical Inc. inspect your entire plumbing system at least once a year to help stop leaks before they become a major expense

Leak Detection Tips and Hidden Warning Signs

Not all plumbing leaks are easy to detect. Some of the hidden warning signs of plumbing leaks include:

  • Increased water bill – A sudden, unexpected increase in your water bill could be a sign of a water leak, particularly an outdoor leak where the excess water is being absorbed into the soil and not being detected.
  • Mold and mildew odor – Wood and wood fiber housing products that are constantly saturated will eventually begin to rot or promote the growth of mold and mildew. If you notice an unusual, slightly unpleasant odor that never goes away, even after cleaning, there could be mold and mildew growing beneath a sink or behind a wall, which is a sure sign of a plumbing leak.
  • Dampness and Water Stains Around the Foundation – If the foundation of your house seems to have a damp spot that never goes away, particularly if it’s near a hose bib or outlet, there could be a leak in the water line coming into your home.

Our plumbers are here to help, so call us any time if you have questions.
