On this clip, Roger Wakefield is going instruct you on how to identify leaks using basic equipment and observing the plumbing with your nose and eyes. Leak detection in plumbing is an art as much as it is science. If there is an leak, you’ll need be monitoring different parts of the system in order to find out where it’s located before you can start working on it.
The companies that specialize in leak detection begin by instructing plumbers on how to spot leaks. They pay attention to three areas, which include the thermometer, hot water heater valve, and the irrigation valve. An irrigation company that specializes in leak detection needs to be to be contacted if the system starts to leak.
If the valve in question is localized, the next step is to examine the system, and then introduce air into it, keeping it at a low pressure to create a boiling noise. The system can be listened to by every part of the system in order to detect leaks, and notify homeowners.
When the homeowner is aware, they can get options for fixing their home. They can also reduce the cost of repair as they will know the location of the problem.
