A leaking drain is one of the most unpleasant problems you might have to deal with as a homeowner, which is why it’s so important to select a reputable plumber for leak detection. Unlike a leaking pipe, which leaks clean water, a leaking drain leaks water that contains organic waste and other contaminants. This leak can occur at any point in your home’s drainage system; from behind a wall to below the floors. And when it happens, it can cause water damage, plus, it can compromise the hygiene of your home.
That’s why you need reliable leak detection. An experienced plumber knows how to detect a leak in your drainage system using a combination of technologies, which can include thermal imaging, moisture level meters and video camera inspection. All of this data combined can paint an accurate picture of where the leak’s located, as well as whether there’s any water damage and to what extent.
