SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Like aftershocks, the impacts of Sunday's 6.1-magnitude earthquake are being felt long after the quake itself. Throughout Napa County, the quake left extensive damage to homes, streets and buildings, even beyond what is immediately apparent.
"As a community partner, we want to make sure that further property damage and water waste are minimized," said Sean Macaulay, American Leak Detection franchisee, located in San Rafael. "We want to help fill any need as we all rebound from this destructive earthquake." Macaulay owns the franchise with his brother, Christian. Together they manage a team of eight technicians.
The Macaulays are offering discounted inspections for American Canyon, Napa, and Vallejo families, business owners and municipalities who want to ensure that their pipes or pools are not leaking, potentially causing lasting damage.
Stopping leaks protects property and saves water, which is crucial because California is experiencing severe drought conditions. Leaks are the largest source of household water waste, and often go undetected. Pipes, toilets and pools are the most common places to find leaks, but often there isn't water visible.
Highly skilled technicians are able to check for leaks indoors and out, a service often covered by insurance, without cutting into walls or concrete slab. Specialized equipment and proprietary techniques help pinpoint leaks faster and more accurately than ever before.
Many areas in California, Napa County included, have pipes nearing the end of their life cycle, which are not only more apt to leak, but also more easily rupture or crack during even small earthquakes. It is estimated that the Bay Area alone is losing 23 billion gallons each year to aging and leaky pipes.
Since opening its doors in 1974, American Leak Detection has found over 7 million leaks in homes and businesses in five countries.
