a dripping faucet that’s disturbing you or something more severe,

When you call our Saskatoon leak detection specialists, we will arrive

and get to work to repair it. Rather than breaking down your walls to
access your pipes, we can perform noninvasive inspections using state-of-the-art
electronic technology, such as thermal imaging, snake cameras, and more.
Common Causes of Leaks
Considering how much use your plumbing system gets on a daily basis, there
will come a time when your pipes will wear out. As your pipes age, they
will become more prone to damage and corrosion, which leads to leaks.
Additionally, any clogs in your drains or toilet can put excess pressure
on your pipes, causing a leak to form. Lastly, some of your piping exists
beneath your home, which makes it susceptible for tree root intrusion.
As trees grow, the roots seek moisture and will, on occasion, penetrate
pipes in search of water. This can cause a quite severe leak to form.
The Importance of Quick & Effective Leak Repairs
Discovering that you have a plumbing leak can be a stressful experience,
but any property damage a plumbing leak causes can make the stress even
worse. That’s why it’s important to call us for a thorough
inspection and repairs as soon as possible.
Without immediate action, your leak may result in:
Wasted water: From tiny faucet leaks to larger scale issues, a plumbing leak can lead
to gallons of water waste if not handled quickly. This will cause your
water bill to increase.
Mold and mildew growth: Mold and mildew thrive in moist environments. Therefore, any pooling or
standing water will produce the perfect environment for these fungi to grow.
Damage to your walls: Because your plumbing exists within your walls, any leak has the potential
to destroy your drywall and cause the entire structure to weaken or completely collapse.
Damage to your flooring: Due to gravity, any time you have a leak, water will be pulled to your
floor. Depending on the location of the leak, this water can become trapped
under your floorboards, beneath your tiles and slabs, and more. Eventually
this can cause the foundation of your home to begin to crack.
