Leak Detection & Repair

Leak Detection & Repair in Aberdeen, North Carolina 

Leaking pipes and plumbing fixtures can be a huge issue for homes and businesses. A small leak can quickly become a major problem, causing damage and wasting water. To make matters worse, it is impossible sometimes to see leaks because they are behind walls, under flooring, or are otherwise hidden from view. 

This is why we at Thomas Plumbing offer leak detection and repair services in Aberdeen. Whether it is one leak or many, you can count on our team to locate the problem area(s) and implement a lasting fix. We are available around the clock, so do not hesitate to reach out to us. We proudly serve residential and commercial properties in Aberdeen, Raeford, Pinehurst, Southern Pines, and the surrounding areas.

How Plumbers Find Hidden Leaks

Our licensed, insured, and experienced team of plumbers has multiple leak detection methods at its disposal. They can employ one or more of them to precisely identify the location of a leak. 

 Below, we have described a few detection methods and how they work:

  • Checking the Water Meter: This method involves turning off all plumbing fixtures and looking for changes in a building’s water use. This method does not locate leaks but confirms they exist.
  • Visual Inspection: We have been in business since 2008 and have the know-how to show for it. Our team knows where to look for leaks and can often get a good idea of the scope of the issue just from an initial visual inspection.
  • Sewer Cameras: Advanced camera technologies can provide video of cracks or damage in sewer or water lines that allow them to leak.
  • Acoustic Detection: Listening devices can pinpoint the exact location of leaks by capturing the sounds they make.
  • Thermal Imaging: Leaks cause temperature variations that a thermal imaging camera can pick up. This method is especially useful when an area is too noisy for acoustic detection.
  • Pressure Testing: Pressurizing pipes and monitoring for pressure drops is a common leak detection method.

Commonly Asked Questions

Why is it important to detect and repair leaks?

Detecting and repairing leaks is important because even a small leak can quickly become a major problem. Leaks can cause damage to the structure of a building, promote the growth of mold and mildew, and waste a significant amount of water.

What is a water meter check?

A water meter check involves turning off all plumbing fixtures and monitoring the water meter to look for changes in water use. This method helps confirm the presence of a leak but does not locate the exact location.

What is visual inspection?

Visual inspection is a method used by experienced plumbers to identify leaks. They know where to look for signs of leaks and can often get an idea of the scope of the issue just from an initial visual inspection.

How do sewer cameras help in leak detection?

Sewer cameras are advanced camera technologies that can provide video footage of cracks or damage in sewer or water lines. This allows plumbers to identify leaks that may be hidden underground or behind walls.
