How to Find a Water Leak Underground

It can be difficult to find plumbing leaks when your damaged pipes are hidden beneath the ground. However, repairing leaks is very important for those who want to avoid water damage and long-term plumbing problems. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, PA, we provide high quality residential and commercial plumbing services including inspections, leak detection, trenchless pipe repair, sewer line replacement and more. If you are concerned that your underground pipes have been leaking, here are some helpful tips on how to solve the issue so you can enjoy a safe and reliable plumbing system again.

Why Is It Important to Repair Leaks at the First Sign of Trouble?

Hidden leaks can wreak havoc on your property. Water damage, mold growth and exposure to harmful bacteria are just a few of the severe consequences of ignoring the presence of underground leaks. Many home and business owners will also struggle with root infiltration, rising utility costs, frequent clogs, sewer line backups, collapsed pipes and a host of other plumbing issues over time. When you take the proactive approach and stop leaks before they worsen, you can extend the longevity of your plumbing system and avoid unnecessary trouble.

How to Know if You Have an Underground Water Leak

A soggy lawn and an unexplained rise in your monthly water bills are two of the main warning signs that property owners are sure to notice. However, these two factors can often be influenced by other events, such as an overwatered lawn or hidden utility fees. The best way to determine if you have a hidden leak is to check your water meter. If your main water valve is shut off for 30 to 60 minutes, and your water meter still detects water usage, this can be a clear indication that a leak exists.

Benefits of Investing in Professional Leak Detection Services

Though you may be certain that a leak exists somewhere in your plumbing system, pinpointing the exact source of the leak can be extremely difficult. Professional plumbers in Pittsburgh have the specialized equipment needed to thoroughly inspect your plumbing system for signs of trouble and can locate the areas of your pipes that have been compromised. They will also have the training and experience required to perform a trenchless pipe repair or replacement, so you can restore the integrity and dependability of your underground pipes.
