How to Locate a Mystery Leak

There’s nothing more frustrating than a leak in your home that you can’t find the source of. A mystery leak is a side-winding puzzle because the source is incredibly elusive. Water leaks are also difficult because a water leak can occur anytime and virtually anywhere on your property.

If you can’t find the source of your leak you can rely on our team members for our leak detection services in Calgary, AB. We understand how to service clients when they’re stressed and in a pinch. You’ll never have to worry about the well-being of your home when you choose our team to service your plumbing.

Getting to Know the Signs

Spotting a water leak early on can save you from a potential disaster. If you notice any of these signs in your home make sure that you contact one of our professional plumbers.

Have Our Team Test for a Leak

The best thing that you can do for your home is to check for a leak. If you give a quick online search for “How to Locate a Leak” you’ll find a lot of articles instructing you to perform this service on your own. In actuality, it’s always best to contact a professional. Our plumbers go above and beyond in their leak detection services. Of course, we’ll do a physical search of your home to note any overt signs of a leak and then we’ll take it a step further and use our professional tools to pinpoint the leak.

Take a Moment to Note Your Usage

Take a second to think about water usage in your home. The best way to get a good reading on your water usage is by checking your water usage levels throughout winter. Let’s say that you live in a home with four people. If you use more than about 12,000 gallons of water per month then you definitely have a water leak problem. Contact our team promptly to fix the issue you’re having with your plumbing system.

Keep a Close Eye on Your Water Bill

Does your water bill seem to rise no matter what happens in your home? A leak is probably to blame. Collect some bills from the past few months and compare them to a few water bills from this same time last year. Do you notice a big jump in the price of your bill? Your water bill really shouldn’t change much from month to month. You may not notice that there’s a problem in your home because so much of your pipework is underground. Make sure you have a professional from our team take a thorough look at your plumbing system.

Survey Your Home

Watch out for the visual signs of a leak like soggy floors, dark spots on walls and ceilings, and any foul odors in dank, dark spaces in your home. All these signs show that you have a big leak in your home. Noting these problems early and addressing them promptly will really help your home.
