The Importance of Detecting Leaks
If you suspect a leak in your sewer, water, or gas line, it’s important that you call your local experts at NTX Plumbing right away. These leaks can not only be a sign of a much larger issue, but they can also pose health and safety threats to the people and animals inside your home or business. A professional inspection is the only way to know for sure what’s happening within your pipes.
Our Leak Specialization Services in Dallas County and Collin County, Texas
We are proud to provide a range of leak specialization services to our residential and commercial customers. Leaks can occur throughout the pipelines inside and outside homes and businesses. If you notice strange noises, smells, cracks, pools of water, or unexpected changes in your utility bills, it’s likely that a sewer, water, or gas leak is to blame.
If you notice constant or strange running water noises, moist floors, foul odors, foundation cracks, unusually lush grass, unwanted pests, or higher water bill, your home or business may have a sewer leak. To diagnose sewer leaks, your local NTX Plumbing technician will use hydrostatic leak detection, combined with a high-definition sewer camera inspection.
Hydrostatic leak detection is a process through which sewer pipes are tested for leaks. This test is completed by filling and pressurizing the pipeline in question and monitoring any pressure level changes. If the water pressure and/or level drops, it is an indication of a leak in the sewer system. If there are no changes in level or pressure, it can be safely assumed that the sewer line is leak-free.
Sewer camera inspections are completed by inserting a snake-like cable with a high-definition camera attached to the sewer line, allowing our specialists to see inside your pipes. This process provides a picture of the state of your pipes, allowing us to see and/or confirm any cracks or leaks in the line.
Increased water bills, wet spots on floors or walls, and inconsistent water pressure are all symptoms of a water leak. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to have a professional leak isolation test performed to determine the exact location of the leak.
To perform a leak isolation test, our certified technicians will insert an inflatable test ball and camera into your main sewer line to block off the system. The entire system of pipes is then filled with water and divided into sections to isolate them for camera inspection to determine where precisely the leak is occurring.
Gas leaks can be extremely dangerous. If you notice the smell of gas (often compared to rotten eggs or sulfur), dying houseplants or landscaping, or stovetop flames that are orange and yellow instead of blue, it’s likely that you have a gas leak inside your Dallas or Collin County home or business. Gas poisoning, characterized by symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, headaches, fatigue, and difficulty breathing, can be deadly for people and pets.
To diagnose a potential gas leak, our specialists will completely shut off your gas line to complete a professional inspection. We will inspect all gas piping, including connections, valves, and attached appliances before connecting a gas pressure gauge to a burner orifice. The gas service valve will be reopened to allow gas to flow into the piping distribution system before being securely closed again. Our trained experts will then read the gas pressure gauge to determine if there is an issue, isolating sections of your gas line as needed to identify the leak.
