Leak Detection and Repairs
A leaky pipe or faucet can be devastating in your home. Water leaks can damage your floors and ceilings, waste countless gallons of water and worst of all, they’re often extremely hard to find and diagnose. Leak Detection and Repair is a fine art form – one that we have been practicing for many years in the Houston area.
With Arrow Plumbing, you will get the best quality service every step of the way – from the initial consultation to the leak detection process to the patching and prevention of future leaks. We want your home to stay dry and safe.
You may need leak detection if:
- Your water bill increases for no apparent reason
- You hear the sound of water running when no taps are open
- You see foundation cracks
- Grass of foundation plants grow unevenly
- There is a visible shift in the soil around your home
- You have warm spots on slab floors
- You have discolored floor coverings, such as darkened hardwood
- You smell bad odors coming from floors or walls
Leak Detection That Works
Some companies can detect a leak, but along the way may cause damage to your home or create worse problems that will then need to be fixed later. You can rest assured that our highly trained, expert plumbers will not only find your leaks quickly and efficiently, but repair them without causing any damage to your home.
Leak detection starts with state of the art technology that minimizes invasiveness. Our detection equipment works with in-home pipes, swimming pools, and outdoor drains and spigots alike.
Leak Detection and Repair
Leak detection starts with general inspection. The trained experts at Arrow Plumbing will review your home and check for the obvious signs of water leakage. Once the symptoms are spotted, we can track the issue back to the source and find the pipe, fixture or connector that is creating the leak. Some leaks are simple to fix – requiring a patch on a pipe or the tightening of a joint. However, others may require more extensive repairs, a service we can provide at the time of your leak detection. Call Arrow Plumbing for your leak detection and repair today!
Slab Leak Detection, Foundation Leak Repair
Homes in Houston built on concrete slabs are vulnerable to shift, particularly when there isn’t much rain. Plumbing lines buried beneath slabs are vulnerable to the shifting soil. If the soil moves too much, plumbing lines can develop leaks. A slow leak beneath a home can cause the soil to shift more, which can make the leak worse. That makes early leak detection essential.
In severe cases, the slab and flooring can erupt and flood every room on the ground floor, ruining floor coverings, furniture and appliances. When that happens, foundation repair is only one of several serious problems.
Also, a leak beneath the slab can erode the soil and cause the slab to cave in. When the slab fails, its weight breaks the plumbing lines beneath, causing a rush of water into the home.
If you live in the Houston metro area and are afraid a leak is causing problems in your home, don’t wait for it to get worse. Call us today and learn how our years of plumbing expertise can be put to use stopping and sealing your leaks for good.
