When it comes to leak detection, prevention is key! Regularly inspect your plumbing system for any signs of leaks, such as damp spots, mold growth, or unexplained water bills. Don't ignore even the smallest drips, as they can lead to major damage over time. Remember to check hidden areas like crawl spaces and basements too. If you suspect a leak, don't hesitate to call our professional leak detection service in New Haven & Fairfield Counties. Early detection can save you from costly repairs and water wastage in the long run.

Different Types of Plumbing Leaks

Not all line leaks are created equal. Plumbing leaks can happen to even the most cautious homeowners. Knowing the different types of plumbing leaks is a great way to be educated on how to prevent them – and how to stop them quickly if and when they occur.

  • Water Line Leak. A water line leak can lead to extensive property damage if not found and fixed promptly. Water line leaks can often be detected by a hissing or rumbling sound in your pipes, or by a sudden drop in water pressure. In the case of a water line leak, we recommend shutting off the water from the source and giving us a call. Our professional leak detection specialists are available for every emergency plumbing need.
  • Gas Leak. Gas leaks are a potentially dangerous situation and one that should be acted upon quickly. If you suspect a gas leak within your home, do not attempt a DIY leak repair! In the case of a gas leak, quickly open up windows and doors, leave the area and evacuate all members of your home, and call the gas company. Then, call your local Rick’s Plumbing technicians so we can get started on solving the problem.
  • Hidden Water Leak. Hidden leaks can be catastrophic for your home’s plumbing system. When left undetected, a hidden water leak can lead to extreme water loss, property damage, and, as a result, an increase in your utility bills. Rick’s Plumbing employs professional leak detection specialists to perform leak locating services and find hidden leaks before they wreak unnecessary havoc on your home’s plumbing. Whether it is a utility line leak, a problematic leaky pipe, or an underground hidden leak, our leak locating services will get to the source of the problem.
