Water Leaks

Water Leak Services Broussard, LA

Many Lafayette homeowners have some experience with identifying and fixing simple water leaks like dripping faucets, but not all leaks are so visible. The extensive web of pipes running in your floors and walls to bring you hot and cold water are purposely hidden from homeowners. But when a leak occurs, it makes finding and fixing the source extremely difficult.

Luckily, Tim’s Southern Air is highly experienced in leak detection. Water leak identification can be tricky since water doesn’t stay in one place. Because water can quickly travel along walls and baseboards, under flooring and down vertical pipes, the location of a leak may be far from the resulting water damage. Therefore, water leak identification often requires a knowledgeable plumber.

Where Does Water Leak From?

Water leaks can be extremely difficult to find because there are so many sources it can leak from. An experienced plumber has the expertise to inspect each of these common leak sources:

  • Plumbing in your walls and floors
  • The service line from the meter to your home (typically under your yard)
  • Pipes in the slab
  • Vulnerable leak areas such as basements or crawl spaces

Because these sources can be difficult to access, it is recommended that Lafayette homeowners wait to let a plumber check them out. A licensed plumber can ensure your safety and that the proper methods of detecting and fixing a leak are followed.

Signs You Have A Water Leak

While a plumber may be required to find the source of a leak, homeowners are the first defense to recognizing one. Having this knowledge in mind can help you to recognize and have a plumber address a leak quickly, avoiding extensive damage to your Lafayette home. Keep an eye out for these common signs of a water leak:

  • Wet or spongy spots on the wall or floor
  • The sound of running water (especially if you’re not using any other water)
  • The presence of mold or mildew
  • Cracks in the wall or floor
  • A high water bill despite no change in water usage
  • Changes in the water meter (or a running well pump) when not using water

If you notice one or more of these signs, act quickly and contact a plumber.

Stopping The Leak

Unfortunately, you probably won’t be able to find and stop the source of your leak without the help of a plumber. The good news is that Southern Air’s licensed plumbers are here to provide water leak repair in Lafayette. If you experience a water leak, our expert plumbers will be just a phone call away.

If you notice a severe leak of water, you can try to shut off the water to your entire home. This may slow the leak until a plumber arrives and determines the best course of action. Otherwise, calling as quickly as possible for plumbing assistance is your best bet!

Professional Leak Detection & Repair

Professional plumbers in Lafayette have quite a few devices to use to test your plumbing for leaks. One of the common methods is Static Leak Isolation Testing. This method combines a video camera pipe inspection with hydrostatic pressure testing. All this just means the plumber will be able to test different sections of your plumbing system to find the exact location of the water leak.
