Tips From The Water Leak Experts

When it comes to water leaks, our team of highly skilled and trained plumbing experts have years of experience and can provide you with all of the information that you need to ensure related to water leaks, pipe leaks, broken pipes, frozen pipes, etc.. Below you will find helpful information, but feel free to call our team any time with any questions or concerns that you may have!

Learn About Water Leaks

Some plumbing leaks are obvious and annoying, from a dripping faucet to a toilet that won’t stop running. However, many plumbing leaks are hard to detect until major damage has occurred. Here are some key signs to look for if you suspect you might have a plumbing leak:

  • High water bills: If you have a water meter, you can check if your usage has increased significantly.
  • Mold or mildew: Mold thrives in moist areas, so a leaking pipe behind a wall or under the floor can cause damage. Mold often has a musty, earthy odor.
  • Low water pressure: Even small slab leaks can cause a significant drop in water pressure.
  • Musty smell: A strong, unpleasant odor is often accompanied by a plumbing leak.
  • Leaking pipes: Look for damp surfaces around and beneath your pipes, and look for drips or puddles.
  • Sagging ceiling: A sagging ceiling is one of the more concerning indicators of a significant leak between levels.
  • Hissing sounds: Hissing or whooshing sounds are indicative of water leaks in pipes.

If you’re experiencing any of these issues or have other questions, call Aspen Plumbing Services today to schedule your appointment.

Visual Inspection

The experts at Aspen Plumbing Services generally start their search with a visual inspection of your plumbing system. We look for obvious signs throughout your home, such as mold, water stains, or dripping water. The visual inspection also encompasses any fixtures or appliances hooked up to the plumbing system, including sinks, irrigation lines, laundry machines, and more.

Water Pressure Testing

Water pressure testing, also called isolation testing, allows our expert plumbers to check for leaks by observing water movement, usage, and loss within your plumbing system. We attach a water pressure gauge to a faucet or fixture connection, turns the fixture on to pressurize the gauge, and turns the water meter off to observe the gauge pressure. If the gauge’s pressure decreases, there’s likely a leak in the system. By going through your home and shutting off valves to isolate fixtures, such as toilets, from the system, plumbers can use the pressure test to rule out certain connections. 

Video Inspection

Video pipe inspections can help our plumbers detect a water leak and other plumbing issues beneath your foundation, in the walls, or in other inaccessible areas without doing a full demolition. Once our technician inserts the camera, they can observe the live video feed on the linked monitor. Besides ongoing leaks, they can also look for any cracks, corrosion, or other damage that may cause leaks later on. 

Thermal Imaging Cameras

Thermal imaging cameras, or heat scanners, can detect hidden leaks in hot water pipes behind walls, floors, or other obstructions. Using infrared imaging, these cameras can identify issues that aren’t visibly obvious, such as excessive moisture or temperature variations. These tools can scan broad areas, allowing our plumbers to efficiently pinpoint leaks.

Plumbing Tips From The Experts

Frequently Asked Questions

Chemical drain cleaners can be dangerous and we do not recommend their use in household drains for several reasons. The heat generated by the caustic and acidic cleaners can damage your pipes, especially older pipes, and they can become weakened and crack over time. Regular use can lead to expensive repairs down the line because damaged pipes are more susceptible to leaking or even bursting. Our expert plumbers in Jackson have the proper equipment and knowledge to assess your clog and get your pipes running smoothly quickly! Call us today at (517) 750-9913!

Some plumbing leaks can be hard to detect, especially if they are behind your walls or in the ceiling. While small leaks may not necessarily indicate a large issue, over time they can cause a lot of damage, far beyond just your plumbing by causing mold and damage to your drywall and subflooring. Below are just a few indications that you might have a plumbing leak:

  • Your water bills are increasing but your water usage is staying the same
  • You are seeing discoloration or staining on the walls or on your ceiling
  • Reduced water pressure unexpectedly
  • Strange sounds in your walls near where pipes run

If you’re experiencing any of these call the experts at Aspen Pluming Services today for a full plumbing inspection!

In Jackson Michigan and the surrounding areas our winters get cold and frozen pipes can wreak havoc on your plumbing and home. In colder temperatures (20 degrees Fahrenheit or lower) we recommend allowing your faucets to drip slightly, especially if they are within an exterior wall or if you expect to be away from home for a period of time. Running water through the pipe, even at a trickle, helps prevent them from freezing. You can also insulate the interior of the wall behind and around the pipes to help prevent the pipes from freezing. If you’re a homeowner in Jackson and your pipes freeze, call us 24/7 for emergency service.

Whether it’s your kitchen, bathroom or laundry sink, it’s important to be mindful of what you put down the drain. Substances such as grease, flour, oils, caustic chemicals and other sticky substances should not go down your drain. Over time, they may cause a clog which will slow down your drains and could cause serious plumbing complications. Be sure to dispose of these liquids properly to ensure your drains and pipes are running smooth for years to come.

Over time, roots can enter your in-ground pipes either through a cracked pipe or broken pipe connection. The roots follow water the water and oxygen and they can cause extensive pipe damage and clogs. Our expert plumbers and drain cleaning and jetting experts at Aspen Plumbing Services have the knowledge and equipment to remove the roots and repair or replace the pipe. If you expect your pipes may have roots, call us today at (517) 750-9913.

Have you flushed the toilet just to come back later and find it still running? This is a common occurrence especially in homes with older toilets because over time the flapper loses its water-tight seal around the flush-valve opening allowing water to continue to flow into the toilet bowl from the tank. This can be very costly and cause your water meter or well-pump to run excessively. If your toilet looks to be in need of repair or replacement, call Aspen Plumbing Services today.
