LEAK DETECTION SERVICES
When we repair gas or water lines:
- We first locate where the pipe is leaking, or has broken.
- We next cut that segment of pipe out and replace it with new material.
Although a quick repair will work for most gas or water leaks, there is sometimes a more complex problem and a partial re-pipe or even a full home re-pipe is required, depending on the severity of the problem.
If you need a gas or water line tested or repaired, we are always prepared to find concealed leaks accurately. We can help you pin point a leak by using the latest in electronic leak detection systems using sonar and electrifying pipes along with a host of other tests from air testing the line to using a gas sniffer.
O’Grady Plumbing works directly with the San Francisco Water Department on your behalf to help with accuracy in locating and identifying water line breaks. These leaks may not be evident until you get your water bill. Leak detection services will help identify leaks underneath the ground, or in the walls. Once we do the evaluation we can then accurately provide you with an estimate for the repair. In some cases we can provide you with several different solutions. We offer this service for all gas and water lines.

When the water heater heats to compensate for the thermal expansion, now that the PRV has closed the system, and the excess pressure has no where to go. If this step is missed, the installation of a PRV will actually have an adverse effect on your water pressure, in turn causing more damage.
Galvanized piping for domestic water use is known to cause problems. For example:
- Rust in the water line.
- Clogging up aerators.
- Diminishing output at the point of use.
- Rust can also come from the water heater when the glass lining goes out, or it can come from the ductile City main in the street in some cases.
