If you have repeatedly suffered from water bills higher than they should be, and have been able to find no evidence of leaks, then make the call to Water Savers Atlanta for the best leak detection in Atlanta. Water leaks can be disastrous in these hard times, and financially fatal for those on a fixed income. Waste no time in contacting the professionals at Water Savers to zero in on and solve your problems.
Leak Detection In Atlanta.
“I’ve had high water bills for several months now. I have looked for water leaks and also investigated to see if I have wet spots on the ground outside the house to no avail. Do you have any ideas as I live on a fixed income?”
Make sure you have checked all of your toilets for leaks by doing a simple and cheap test. Place a few drops of food coloring in the water in the tank. If the water in the bowl changes color without you flushing, then you know it’s the flapper. If you replace the flapper and the water is still leaking, then check the stop to see if there are any cracks or grooves in it that prevent the seal from making a full contact.
If the toilets are not leaking, then you may have a broken or leaking water main underground. The only way to find this is to call a leak detection company, such as Water Savers Atlanta, LLC, that can use an acoustic, electronic or thermal leak detection device. Once the leak is located, a Water Savers Atlanta, LLC technician will explain your options to correct the problem. Once you have approved our written estimate the plumbing repair begins by performing a by-pass or excavating the area.
1. This test should be conducted for a 30 minute period, during which time no water is being used on the property.
2. Find your water meter, which is usually located in front of the house in a covered box near the street.
3. Write down the numbers indicated on the meter at the start of this test.
4. Return to check the meter reading after 30 minutes have passed.
5. If the numbers have not changed, you do not have a leak in your pressurized water system. If the numbers have changed, continue with the following steps.
6. Shut off the valves under all toilets in the house, and repeat steps 1-4.
7. If the numbers have not changed, you may have a running toilet that should be serviced.
If the numbers have changed, this indicates water consumption even though water was not being used during the test, and you may need a leak detection.

Poor Shower Pressure & Bathroom Plumbing Solutions
The first thing a plumber will do when he is called to your house because of low water pressure in the shower, but no place else in the house, is to remove the shower head and check the pressure without the shower head (leave the arm coming out of the wall so the water is directed down into the shower).
What to do about low water pressure from shower head:
If you have good water volume coming out of the shower head arm, then you just need to clean or replace the shower head. Household vinegar dissolves the buildup of scale and rust from the inside of the shower head and other residential plumbing fixtures. To remove these deposits, set the shower head in a bowl of vinegar overnight.
In addition, check the flow restrictor inside the female end of the shower head to see if there is debris. The flow restrictor is generally removable so you can work on it in the light.
Water in Yard – A Natural Issue or Plumbing Problem?
“We have natural ground water coming up in the front yard. We live in Baltimore. Who can we contact about our plumbing problems?”
If you are sure it is natural ground water and not a septic tank or water service line that is causing the problem, you probably need to speak to your local water or health department. If it is not natural water, contact your licensed plumbing specialists for leak detection. We can assist you with this plumbing service.
If it is natural, then you will have to look at leech line under the ground to collect the water and direct it away from the yard and out to the street’s storm drain or drainage area.
A french drain is a tube that has perforations to allow the water to flow into the pipe. The outside is covered with a filter sock to prevent sand from entering and the whole pipe is encased in 3/4 inch pea gravel in a trench. A filter paper is installed on top of the gravel and your soil is reinstalled on top of the whole thing, so you can’t see the drain when it is done.
