In a single year, your home could be losing as much as 20,000 gallons of water as a result of leaky plumbing, and if you are living in Orange County, water supply is precious and needs to be conserved. While you are likely to notice a leaky faucet or toilet, you may be missing “invisible” leaks that hide in valves, supply lines, and other less obvious locations.
Water leak detection is the process of identifying the source and extent of leaks in your plumbing system—it is a way to diagnose and treat the cause of growing water bills. All Star Plumbing & Restoration, provides water leak detection in Orange County around the clock, ensuring that our customers have convenient access to water leak detection services and plumbing solutions. Our customers are always looking for ways to conserve water and reduce costs, particularly during times of drought—we are here to help.
Do You Need Water Leak Detection Services?
If your water bill has been higher than usual, or if you suspect that your bill does not accurately reflect your water usage, you may have one or more invisible water leaks. By performing a straightforward meter test on your own, you can determine whether or not an invisible leak is present in your home.
First, shut off each faucet in your home, as well as any appliance that consumes water. Remember that gadgets such as refrigerator ice makers also use water. Once you have shut off all of these items, record the reading on your water meter. Leave the meter alone for at least ten minutes; then read the meter a second time. If your meter has changed or moved since your initial reading, there is at least one water leak in your home.
Importantly, this test will only tell you if you have a leak; it will not determine where the leak is, or even how many leaks are present. A trained water leak detection professional should intervene at this point to identify any leaky or inefficient plumbing components. At All Star Plumbing & Restoration, we pride ourselves in getting the job done right the first time. Our technicians check even the smallest valves, giving you peace of mind about the integrity of your home’s plumbing system.
