24-Hour Leak Detection Services and Professional Repairs
Detour Plumbing provides comprehensive plumbing leak detection and leak repair services in the Santa Clarita area. Water leaks aren’t always obvious. They’re often hidden in the walls or the ceiling and remain so until more serious problems such as mold and wood rot develop. That’s why it is critical to call a plumber when there’s the subtlest sign of a leak.
Gas leaks often go unnoticed as well. They can remain small for some time, but a buildup of gas can be extremely dangerous. It can affect your health and increase the risk a fire or explosion. Detour Plumbing works efficiently to locate the source of the problem and make repairs using non-invasive methods. We can therefore fix the issue quickly without disrupting your household, while restoring your plumbing and safety.
Common Causes of Gas and Water Leaks
Gas leaks may be caused by poorly installed piping. However, gas pipes erode with time and wear out. Sometimes this causes holes or cracks to develop, or a pipe can disconnect from its attachments. Tree roots can encroach on and penetrate a gas pipe as well. Other times, the leak source is not the pipe itself but bad seals in gas appliances such as stoves, water heaters, or fireplaces.
Water leaks are often caused by clogged pipes, corrosion, damaged pipe joints, and broken seals where water connections feed appliances such as dishwashers. High water pressure can damage pipelines as well, while tree roots are a common cause of pipe leaks outside your home’s structure. Extreme changes in temperature can cause expansion and contraction of pipes, as part of a freeze/thaw cycle, ultimately causing pipe failure.
Common Signs of a Leak
The most common signs of a leak in your home, other than visible pooling of water or floods, include:
- An unexplainable increase in your water bill.
- The water meter continuously ticks, regardless of water usage.
- Water stains on sheetrock, walls, and wet spots around toilets, sinks, and tubs.
- Discoloration on the floor, walls, or ceiling.
- Dripping noises from where the pipes are located.
- Large areas of water or dampness in your yard.
- Visible mold and mildew accompanied by a musty odor.
- Cracks in the foundation, caused by water leakage and structural weakening.
The smell of gas is a sure sign of a gas leak. A substance is added to natural gas long before it gets to your home, to help recognize there’s a leak before disaster strikes. Like water pipes, gas lines are susceptible to corrosion and other factors that cause wear and tear. Our expert plumbing technicians are trained to perform gas leak repair as effectively as they can provide water leak detection and repair.
