Stop Recurring Leaks With Lake Cook Plumbing’s Leak Detection Methods

What’s worse than having a water leak? Having one that keeps coming back.

Water leaks can cause some serious damage to your home and to your wallet. And if you find that you have one that just won’t go away, the problem can get even worse. That’s why it’s important to get any leak taken care of quickly and efficiently.

At Lake Cook Plumbing, our technicians employ three different methods to ensure they trace down the source of the leak and gather enough information to be able to properly patch it up and get your home back to normal.

Leak Detection Methods

  1. The first and most popular is a video camera inspection. It’s always our go-to choice because of its simplicity. We send a fiber-optic cable down your pipeline which enables us to get a clear picture of everything that’s going on. We can easily find the source, the location, and the best course of action for repair.
  2. Another option we hold in high regard is ultrasonic detection. This is a method that uses sound to find the leak. When it comes to successfully locating the source, it really depends on whether the leak is turbulent. Because to a layman that doesn’t make much sense, allow us to explain. Turbulence is when the friction and collision of gas molecules is forced from an area of higher pressure to one of lower pressure. There are many factors that can effect the amount of sound (turbulence) emitted from a leak, and fortunately our technicians know how to depict all of them.
  3. Finally, we have smoke detection. Though the idea is simple, sometimes this process can be lengthy, which is why we use it as a last resort. It involves pumping harmless smoke into your pipes and watching to see where it escapes.

We promise that when you choose us to find and repair your leak, you won’t need to worry about it again. And, if you find that the problem was not resolved, we have a 90-day worry free guarantee. Tell us about it, and we’ll make it right. Don’t wait – call Lake Cook Plumbing today! (847) 550-3801
