Water Leak Detection in Mobile Home Communities

Mobile home communities often find that the money they are collecting for utilities from the residents are not covering the costs of the utility bills.  The electric bill has not changed more than typical rate increases.  The gas bill has not changed more than typical rate increases.  The water bill on the other hand has doubled, tripled or gone up even more.  These are not costs you can pass along to the residents of your community.  The bills do not ever go down; they increase in leaps and bounds month after month.  Metering all of the individual lots will help a mobile home community to know how much water the community is losing and how much water a single lot is losing.  The resident may be responsible for the single lot, and the remaining lost water is from the water mains throughout the neighborhood.  A leak detection company like United Leak Detection, Inc. will find leaks in water mains in the community, and often can help to provide repair solutions in a cost-effective manner.  By helping to negotiate with the water  service providers and utility companies, United Leak Detection can not only save money going forward, but often can help to credit water bills that the community has already received.   The expertise of the water professionals at United Leak Detection is second to none when it comes to saving a mobile home community money!  Once a neighborhood decides that high water bills need to become a thing of the past, call United Leak Detection at (888)422-5325 so that they can start working with you to get your utility bills under control.

Water and Slab Leak Links

Slab Leaks in Indiana in the Winter

Slab leaks are common in the summer.  They can occur in the winter, too.  Many people expect them to be more common in the winter.  Freezing is not so much of a problem when the lines are properly buried.  In the cold states more prone to freezing this means at least 36 inches, and sometimes 48 inches.  When properly buried, the lines are much less likely to freeze underground.  Spring and fall seem to be the most common time for slab leaks in deeply buried lines.  As the weather gets hot then cold, cold then hot, the lines expand and contract.  Not enough to freeze, but enough to finally wear through where a bit of corrosion has weakened the line.  In warmer climates, where lines may be buried as little as six inches deep a cold spell can cause the lines to burst much more easily.  Of course, if the lines are buried under little more than six inches of soil, the leaks are often fairly easy to find.  In the cold weather climates, leaks can often find their way to the ground water, around the foundation of the home or even can follow sewer lines and drain so that the water never surfaces.  In this case, it is best to call someone who can help to find the leak and help to get it repaired.  United Leak Detection can help with finding the leak and providing repair options.  We work with thousands of homeowners who have had the same problems as you might be, and have helped them navigate the ins and outs of getting a troublesome slab leak repaired.

Hot Water Leaks in Indiana

Hot water heaters are one of the most common leaks that homeowners in Indiana run into.  Certainly you can take care of this repair yourself if you are particularly handy, but that problem that you may not know exists is the quality and price of water heaters from the big box retailers may not be similar to what a  local plumber can get you from there supply house.  You can get a high quality heater for a reasonable price, and if a truly high quality heater is what you want, you may not even be able to find the highest quality at the local big box.  Call a plumber that has experience doing the work.  Make sure that the person who talks to you about the heater you want is the same plumber that will be installing the heater.  Some companies have one person to sell you the heater, another to install it, and yet another will be a contact if you have any problems after the installation.   Talk to your neighbors.  Word of mouth is not only the best advertising for the plumbers, you get piece of mind by working with someone you trust before they have even stepped foot in your house!  Good Luck!  If you leak is not the water heater but is hidden, you may need to call al leak detection company to help find it.  That is where we come in.  You can call United Leak Detection of Indiana.  Thanks for reading.
