Types of leaks we address:
Underground water leaks in your pipe lines, hydrants and valves are the worst, as they can have a direct impact on your property foundation and grounds. Hidden underneath heaps of concrete slabs or grass, such leaks may not exactly make themselves prominent which makes them hard to detect. However, that doesn’t mean you should let a plumber dig up trenches throughout your hard to know exactly where the leak is coming from, because we know how to work it out.
How we detect it?
When water leaks, it always does so with a ‘hiss’ or ‘whoosh’ sound – sound that can be picked up by sensors using high-tech equipment. That’s exactly what Fort Lauderdale Restoration Company does. An acoustic ground sensor is placed, which is connected to high-end headphones that pick up clear sound, while muffling any interference and background noise. To pinpoint the exact location, our experts look for areas where the sound is the loudest, which is usually the spot where the leak is located.
While some leaks glare straight at you, others shy away from making an appearance, slowly damaging your property. From your plumbing lines to home appliances, water leaks can stem from anywhere - and you won’t even realize it. That’s where the real problem lies! Breaking down the wall may seem like the easiest thing to do, however, considering the costs incurred down the line, you might want to back out and let our experts do the job instead.
How we detect it?
When you’ve got technology on your side, the primitive techniques of trial and error hold no ground. We won’t be guessing the location of the leak and tearing apart the drywall to confirm our suspicions; rather we use state-of-the-art thermal imaging cameras that use temperature variations to indicate colder (wetter) areas which signify the presence of leaks, without causing any damage to your property.
