Does plumbing leak detection sound like science fiction? At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing in Southern Pines, we like to stay abreast of the latest innovations in plumbing, and that’s why we’re excited about electronic leak detection.
In the not-so-distant past, identifying a leak in the home could mean tearing up walls, removing flooring, or otherwise damaging parts of the home in the quest for the leak source.
There isn’t always telltale dripping or obvious physical signs of a leak until it’s too late. Many times, the leak is happening silently under your floors or in your walls with no way of knowing.
Since the best defense is offense, we’re happy to provide electronic leak detection service to businesses and residences in the Southern Pines, North Carolina area. This innovative technology uses electricity to measure the frequencies in your home to locate the source of a leak. It may surprise you to learn that leaks emit different frequencies, unperceivable to the human ear, which an electronic leak detector can pick up on.
Electronic leak detectors can locate leaks throughout various water systems, including toilets, drains, and steam pipes and can pinpoint the exact location of a leak, which is then verified by a plumbing technician.
Getting a full picture when it comes to your plumbing system can catch issues before they become problems, and possibly save you thousands of dollars down the road, as even the smallest leaks can cause cracks in your foundation and other water damage.
