Leak Detection and Prevention

Leak Detection and Prevention

One of the biggest problems facing homeowners in Florida is having their water pipes leaks. Why?  Florida’s water contains high amounts of dissolved oxygen and hydrogen sulfide. When mixed with chlorinated water, the blend becomes corrosive. If you currently have a leak you should call an experienced plumber, such as American Plumbing Florida, which has an A Rating on Angie’s list with over 100 positive reviews..

The top reason why leaks occur is when the mineral in the treated water causes build up in the pipes. This is called scaling. When scaling occurs, your water pressure can become very low to non-existent, but the pressure of the water builds up and will cause cracks in the pipes. To fix this you’ll need to unclog all the pipes by removing the pipes and cleaning them, it’s recommended to have an experienced plumber do this process.

Due to hot weather year round in Florida, all water treatment plants use chlorine to ensure bacterial growth doesn’t occur, but the chlorine causes the pipes to corrode, and slowly begin to leak water. Which can raise your water bill dramatically.
