As winter weather rolls in, our neighbors in Westwood, MA, may notice small (or large) increases in water usage, which can mean it’s time to schedule leak detection. A water leak may start small and gradually worsen over time, or a leak can go from nothing to a burst pipe in hours. In either case, Green Energy Mechanical Inc plumbers are ready to help you locate the problem and repair it quickly. For water leaks, fast repairs are a must to avoid snowballing repair costs and issues like mold or mildew.
"Green Energy Mechanical always has great service from the first call to the service repair."
If you can point the way to the leak, that’s great! Sometimes a water leak is obvious and easy for our experienced plumbers to repair. Unfortunately, sometimes leaks happen behind walls, in the ceiling, or buried underground. Even toilets can develop silent leaks that lead to hundreds of gallons of wasted water. Our non-invasive leak detection takes a look at your pipes from the inside out.
If our plumbers can’t isolate the leak source from a visual property inspection, they will move on to other techniques. A visual inspection of the pipes may reveal moisture, and access panels often let our plumbers take a look at any pipe joints or places where leaks commonly occur. If we can’t find the leak with an external inspection, we insert waterproof cameras and take a look at the inside of your pipes.
If you’re worried that you might have a leak, here are a warning signs to keep an eye out for:
Sudden increases on your water bill
A meter that keeps running
Wet spots on the ceiling or walls
Unpleasant odors, particularly of mildew
Pooling water in your lawn
If you’re worried about a silent leak, do a quick test. Pour a cup of coffee or other dark liquid into the toilet tank and wait. If the dark water leaks into the bowl, call Green Energy Mechanical Inc immediately. The faster you address a silent leak, the better.
