Sebastian Mather, Raider Rooter Leak Detection Specialist, learned the ins and outs of plumbing while serving in the Army. He chose the plumbing industry because of the variation of the day-to-day work, and also the challenges of each project.
One of Sebastian’s most memorable jobs was digging a 65 foot tunnel underneath an elder care facility to correct an unknown issue. No other companies wanted to take on the job because they could not pinpoint the issue to resolve it. It required installing a 1,000 sq. ft. drain field with consecutive septic tanks and lift stations. “It was an immense project. But, I like working through a problem to accomplish my goal, especially because there are many different ways to remedy an issue – sometimes they’re obvious and sometimes they’re not.”
Sebastian will tell you that tracking a leak in your plumbing can be tricky, but certainly necessary. If not corrected in a timely manner, the potential damage can be quite costly. Leaks can damage your pipes, waste water, destroy building materials, and lead to the development of mildew.
While a lot of leaks are hard to detect, there are several warning signs that point to plumbing leaks. For example:
All or any combination of these signs are red flags you might have a plumbing leak. The next thing to do is to check your water meter. While no water is being used inside or outside your home, check your meter. Wait an hour or two while still not using any water and check the meter again. If the reading changed, there’s a good chance you have a leak.
