Local Leak Detection Experts Help Homeowners Avoid Sinkhole Threats

Orlando, Florida – The state of Florida is known for having more sinkholes than any other state in the nation, and the danger of a sinkhole opening up in your neighborhood increases based on the amount of water built-up underground.

“Since the entire state is underlain by carbonate rocks, sinkholes could theoretically form anywhere,” says Ronald Blom, a geologist with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

When this carbonate rock starts to dissolve, due to excess rain, flooding or water build-up, it causes loose terrain which can then develop into a dangerous sinkhole. However, both natural phenomena and human activity can trigger a sinkhole. For example, the heavy pumping of groundwater for farming or excessive leaks from underground pools can erode away at the rock underground.

“Homeowners need to understand that avoiding water leaks is about more than reducing your monthly water bill,” says Robert Douglas with Certified Leak Detection in Orlando. “It’s about natural preservation and land integrity, too.”

The swimming pool leak detection company, led and managed by Douglas, has been serving Central Florida homeowners since 1992 and helping them detect and repair leaks before they become bigger problems for their home or foundation.

They use a comprehensive and patented technology to detect leaks in swimming pools, spas, foundations, slabs, walls, decks and foundations for commercial and industrial use. They are recognized by the National Pool & Spa Association and are listed on SeaWorld’s Exceptional Vendor list for 2012 and 2013.

Certified Leak Detection has received countless local honors by Orange and Seminole Counties and are a “Going Green” initiative vendor. They are the leading provider of Orlando leak detection, Lake Mary leak detection, Sanford leak detection, pool maintenance and more!

One recent testimonial from a consumer reads:

“I had spent the last several months filling my pool almost daily. Being new to pool ownership, I wasn't sure if that was just normal with evaporation during the dry months, until I bought a pool blanket and continued to lose water. I found Certified Leak Detection in my research online and found their website to be very helpful, so I decided to give them a call. Robert gave me an estimate over the phone and described what he would be able to do…When he finished, he let me know that all of the needed repairs would be included in his overall fee, with the exception of one which required more extensive work.”
