What Causes Plumbing Leaks?

A number of issues can lead to water leakages in your plumbing system. Most commonly, wear and tear, along with age, can put a damper on your water lines. Plumbing materials rust, erode and break down over time, even if you have properly installed and quality pipes. Even the surrounding soil or environment can play a role in burst pipes. Professional leak detection services will thoroughly inspect for any blockages or obstructions within the pipes to see if they’ve caused any bursts.

How to Detect a Leak

Despite many leaks forming in hard to see or hard to reach places around your home, Ground Zero provides the proper technology and equipment needed to detect water leaks. While slab leaks or dripping faucets are the most apparent signs of a burst pipe that you are able to detect, there are plumbing lines that run throughout and under your home that are easy to miss. If these go undetected for too long, they can cause costly damages. We utilize leak detection cameras and microphones and insert them near the problem areas to find any issues that may otherwise go unseen. There is no need for invasive or destructive treatment, making it easier for both of us and keeping the process affordable for you.
