Main Leak Detection and Signs
An underground water leak is a messy and complicated problem to detect and resolve, but hiring an experienced leak detection service can alleviate a lot of the stress that water leaks evoke. Colorado homeowners should have the contact information of a reputable company on hand in case an emergency occurs because a prolonged water leak can cause extreme damage to your home’s plumbing system, foundation, and lawn and can result in flooding, rot, and mold.

What Sounds Do Water Leaks Make?
You may notice several sounds emanating from your underground water pipes that help to diagnose leaks. Integrity Water and Sewer will check for sounds such as “splashing,” “clinking,” and “hissing.” Splashing sounds occur when water sprays the wall of a soil cavity, and clinking sounds come from stones and pebbles bouncing off of pipes. Hissing sounds indicate a decrease in pressure. The frequency range and intensity of the sounds depend on how deep the pipe is buried, the material covering the ground’s surface, soil type and compaction, the pipe’s water pressure, and the pipe’s material and diameter.
If you suspect an underground water leak near your Colorado home, reach out to a trained Representative at Integrity Water and Sewer as soon as possible. As far as complications are concerned, time is of the essence because water has the potential to cause significant damage in your home and yard.
