A Tampa homeowner called us in regards to water showing up in the closet behind a bathroom shower. At first the Tampa homeowner thought it may have been due to their kids overfilling the bath tub. With the use of our ultrasonic and infrared leak detection equipment we were able to locate a pipe leak on a plumbing line in the wall behind the shower. The pipe leak was located where copper meets PVC pipe. If PVC plastic pipe fittings are secured too tightly onto metal plumbing pipe, it will strip the threads and cause a water leak. Leaking water can lead to water damage and mold growth if not attended to as soon as you see the signs of a water leak.

A Tampa homeowner called us in regards to a very high water bill. A typical water bill in Tampa should average around 4000 gallons per person occupying the residence. This number takes into consideration that the Tampa property has a washer and dryer and the washing machine is used on a regular basis. If your water bill is increasing every month and is averaging greater than 4000 gallons per person in the residence, you may have an underground water leak on a plumbing pipe. As you can see in the pictures below, we perform a pressure test on all of the plumbing lines when we first arrive on Tampa properties in order to check the plumbing pipes for leaks. In this particular case, the plumbing line pressure test failed which is an indication of a plumbing pipe water leak. By using our ultrasonic equipment, we located an underground pipe leak under a vanity in the bathroom. We were able to jackhammer a hole underneath the vanity to access the plumbing pipe leak. This allowed the homeowner to leave the tile undisturbed since they didn’t have any extra tiles to match the floor. A Tampa plumber was called out to repair the leaking plumbing pipe. Leaking water can be the cause of mold growth and water damage if left undetected.

A Tampa area homeowner contacted us in regards to water showing up on the floor in their laundry room. This Tampa homeowner could not figure out where the water leak was coming from. At first, they assumed it was from a leaking washing machine as the water was showing up near the washer. After replacing the washing machine and mopping up the water on the floor several times, they realized they may have a leak on the plumbing pipes inside of the wall or underneath the concrete slab. We arrived on site and performed an infrared leak detection for them which showed us where the highest concentration of moisture was in the wall in the laundry room area. There turned out to be a small plumbing pipe leak on one of the plumbing lines that feeds the washing machine. The wall was opened up in the exact spot needing repair causing minimal damage to the Tampa property. If leaking water is not taken care of soon after it occurs, it could potentially cause a problem with mold growth. Water is much easier to clean up in Tampa area properties than it is to deal with a mold issue.
