Leaky Pipes Need Expert Attention: Tools Your Plumber Should Use To Identify Problems

Leaky pipes are no laughing matter. In fact, if your home has leaky pipes, even just one, and it goes unnoticed, you could end up paying a lot more on your monthly water bill — and even your water-heating costs.

When a pipe leaks, you need to address the problem fast. And although you might be tempted to fix the leak yourself, that’s not always a wise decision. There’s often more to a leaky pipe than meets the eye. Detecting a serious problem generally requires expert training and experience. Further, professional plumbers have access to key tools necessary to get the job done right, like these:

  • Propane torches.
  • Hacksaws.
  • Plumber’s wrenches.

Most of the tools that professionals use are designed to seamlessly connect new portions of installed pipe so that they don’t leak in the future, which is a must for a long-lasting, durable plumbing system.

But an expert plumber also has access to detection devices, offering the best way to identify leaks, ensuring that every inch of your plumbing system is checked. If you suspect that you have a leak in the water line from your house to your city supply line, you’ll want a plumber with some form of electronic detection tools, so that if you need any excavation work, you’ll be digging exactly where the problem is, and nowhere else.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."
- Cassandra B.
"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
