How To Know Where A Leak Is Coming From

May 31, 2023 | Blog

Plumbing leaks can be a slow poison for your wallet. They can be invisible at first, but they can cause a lot of damage and become expensive over time. It requires special attention and repair as soon as possible to make sure that the damage doesn’t get worse. This is why it is so important to call a plumber if you suspect your home has pipe damage.

At Hi-Tech Plumbing & Leak Detect in Edmond, we know the amount of damage even the smallest leaks can do. If you suspect water is coming from somewhere in or outside of your house, there are a few simple ways that you can tell where and what kind of leak it is. The fastest way is to call a plumber, who can repair and find the leak with ease!

How To Find The Location Of A Water Leak

If you suspect plumbing damage in your house, the first step is to turn off all the faucets. Inspect the areas around the perimeter of your home for signs of moisture or water damage, such as cracks or gaps in the walls or floors. Additionally, you can use a moisture meter to detect hidden leaks that may not be visible to the naked eye.

While searching for what’s causing the issue, keep an eye out for the exact source of the leak, which may be in a different location than where you see the water. Often, water from a cracked pipe or fixture travels a good distance before it’s noticed.

When Should I Schedule Pipe Repair Services?

Don’t wait to schedule pipe repair services when you notice signs of damage! Act as fast as you can to prevent costly repairs and plumbing replacements. Look for low water pressure, discolored water, unusual noises or wet spots on walls or floors. Ignoring these signs could lead to more severe problems down the line. Call Hi-Tech Plumbing as soon as possible to fix any problems.

Could It Be A Slab Leak?

Leaks from your plumbing system can come from various sources. In contrast, leaks from your slab refer specifically to a leak in the water line that runs beneath the foundation of your home.

To identify a leak from your water line, look for warm spots on the floor, cracks in the foundation or walls or a sudden increase in your water bill. You may also hear running water when all faucets are turned off. If you suspect you’re dealing with a damaged pipe beneath your slab, reach out to our team right away!

When Should I Schedule Slab Leak Repair?

Emergency plumbing repairs can be costly and inconvenient. Pay attention to the signs of a water leak in your space, especially following heavy rain or a seasonal shift. Your home’s foundation can shift over time, causing pipes to burst. Failing to address these issues promptly could lead to extensive damage and costly repairs. The best way to fix the damage is to fix it while it’s a smaller problem!

What Our Customers Are Saying

I Highly Recommend This Company!

I know about this company because my neighbors needed plumbing repair but of course the problem was located in my backyard. Blaine and Joe were fabulous! They did their very best to put my yard back as it was and to make sure my fence was secured so my dogs wouldn’t escape. And they were really kind and understanding of the situation. I highly recommend this company!

Professional and Friendly

I have had Hi-Tech repair two hot water slab leaks in my home this year. Both times they were prompt in scheduling the initial inspection and the actual repair, clear on the costs of the project, and what all work would be done. And on top of that, everyone has been very professional and friendly. I would 100% recommend them for any plumbing project you may have!
