This method will not be able to locate whether or not you have a leak in one of your drain lines, or main drain line which connects with the sewer system or septic system. Additionally, it will not be able to tell of you have a leak in your swimming pool or other outdoor water features that may require water to be added manually.

Why Is It Important to Determine if I Have a Water Leak?
We are going to give you a few of the most important reasons why you need to determine whether or not your property has a water leak.
Water Bill Increases ‐ First, it’s no secret that water is scarce in Orange County and throughout all of California. Due to the scarcity of water in Southern California, the cost of water is much higher than in other parts of the country. A leak can cause your water bill to go up by hundreds of dollars in just a single month. Most of the water leaks that go unnoticed for the longest period of time are outdoors. That is not to say that a leak inside a home to will always be discovered quickly. The increase in your water bill is just one of the reasons it is important to determine if you have a leak.
Mold – When you have a water leak in your home, it has the potential to cause serious damage to your home and even your health. It may come as a surprise that mold can start to grow in as little as 48 hours. All mold needs is the right environment to start growing rapidly. As a matter of fact mold only needs three things: A food source, which can be any type of organic matter such as dust, a dark environment, and water. Most homes already have a large volume of toxic mold spores. However, the mold does not grow because it does not have the water source it needs. When you have a leak on the interior of your property, you have given mold the missing element it needs in order to thrive. According the EPA & Berkeley National Institute, close to 22 million citizens in the United States have asthma. An approximated 4.6 of those cases can be attributed to damp environments with mold. Additionally, infants within their first year of life that have mold in their living environment are almost three times more likely to develop asthma. Some common forms of mold can be toxic. Symptoms of toxic mold exposure can vary greatly. Here are just some of the symptoms that can be caused by toxic mold: Eye irritation, nausea, itchy skin, insomnia, memory loss, anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, chronic sinus infections, headaches & confusion just to name a few. More serious symptoms can include organ failure and some forms of mold exposure can even be deadly. Unfortunately many property owners are not aware that they have mold until they start to smell it. If you suspect you may have a water leak in your home, it is important to deal with it immediately. The longer you wait to have a water leak identified and repaired, the more likely you are to be exposed to potentially toxic mold.
Sinkholes – When a cracks or holes form in a pipe, the soil above the pipe will fall into the pipe, and be washed away. Soil will continue to fall into the pipe which creates a void in the ground. Sinkholes may create an almost unnoticeably small depression in the ground or large enough to easily fit your vehicle within it. Erosion and the influx of water in a given area can also cause retaining walls to fail. Sinkholes caused by a broken pipe have the ability to cause serious bodily harm and severe property damage.
Types of Common Water Leaks
There are a wide range of plumbing leaks that can take place on a property. Pristine Plumbing can identify any type of leak on your property in Orange County. We wanted to take some time to outline some of the most common types of water leaks we experience when we are performing leak detection services in Orange County.
Corroding Pipes – Pipe corrosion may not happen as often as some of the other leaks we will discuss. However, they have the potential to do the most damage. When pipes within a plumbing system age, they will start to rust, and they will eventually fail. Deciding when to replace all the plumbing pipes within a home is a difficult decision to make. However, if one section of your pipe fails due to corrosion, it is a safe assumption that most of the other pipe within your plumbing system is in a similar condition. Pristine Plumbing will help you evaluate the condition of your plumbing system to determine whether or not replacing all of your pipes is in your best interests.
Water Supply Line Leaks – Water supply line leaks are not easy to spot for most property owners unless they are fairly severe. That is because water supply lines are buried under ground. When a water supply line leaks, it may cause a soggy spot in your yard or you may notice water leaking from your yard onto the pavement. Some causes of water supply lines may include: heavy vehicles such as landscaping trucks or moving trucks driving over your lawn, rodents, and wear over time.
Water Softeners – Water softeners are one of the best assets to have in your home. Water in Orange County comes from different sources depending upon the time of year. Water may be coming from one of these three sources depending upon the time of year: The Colorado River, Northern California, or local wells. Most of the water originates from the Colorado River which is considered hard water. Water softeners are definitely recommended for any home or business. Now that we have our recommendation of getting a water heater out of the way, let’s talk about the potential cause of water heater leaks. Loose water connections are the most common cause of water heater leaks. They are generally pretty quick and easy to fix. A rotor valve is another component that causes water softeners to leak. A rotor valve plays a very important role within a water softener. It is the component that sends water through the water softener so the water softener can complete tasks such as flushing filters and softening the water. Some valves can be defective or may even crack and fail completely. Brass valves have a number of metal alloys in them such as zinc. If more than 15% of a brass valves’ total weight is zinc, it can go through a process called dezincification. That is when the zinc is stripped from the brass alloy fixture which creates a void and in doing so makes it structurally weak. When a rotor valve fails, it needs to be replaced.
Swimming Pools – Orange County has more swimming pools than almost any other county in the nation. Anyone who has a pool at their home knows how great they are, but they will also tell you that they can take a lot of upkeep too. A small hole in a pool, the size of a pencil’s point, can cause almost 1,000 gallons of water to be lost in a single day. Pristine Plumbing always recommends having a professional leak detection company inspect any home’s swimming pool before you purchase the home. When you hire the right leak detection company a leak can be found easily. However it may prove to be a costly repair. Additionally it is something that may not be discovered by home inspectors when they are doing a pre-purchase inspection. Pristine plumbing is proud to be able to work with so many Orange County pool owners and save them from losing countless gallons of water.
Sink Faucet and Shower Leaks – Leaks from our sink faucets, shower heads, and bath tub faucets are the most noticeable types of leaks we deal with. They are not only a waste of water but they can also be pretty annoying. Most of us at one-time or another have had a sink faucet that would continuously drip, drip, and drip some more. Even though the water drops stay the same size, the sound seems to get louder over time. Pristine Plumbing can help you get rid of that annoying and wasteful faucet drip. A lot of people choose to have us replace and update their sink or shower fixtures when we come out to fix a sink or shower leak. The money you will save on your water bill by not having a constant drip of water will cover the cost of your new fixtures in no time.
Toilet Leaks – Toilets can leak in a number of different ways. If your toilet and constantly running, there are several things that could be causing this to happen. The chain that connects to the flapper may have gotten snagged on itself, the flapper may have started to deteriorate due to age, or it could be that the ball float needs to be replaced. There is really no way to tell instantly what is causing your toilet to constantly run. It can take from time to diagnose the issue and it may be best to call a professional like Pristine Plumbing. Toilet leaks may also be caused by: cracked porcelain, worn out seals at the base of the toilet, worn out tank to bowl connections & more. If you need help, don’t hesitate to call the skilled and professional plumbers at Pristine Plumbing.
