How Does Water Leak Detection Work?

In theory, locating a leaking pipe should be easy, right? However, unless your leak is coming from a clearly visible pipe—which is rare—plumbing leaks can be almost impossible to find for the untrained eye. Fortunately for you, our professional plumbers have the right equipment and training to detect any type of leak.

Water leak detection is one of the most important services we offer—not only do we help find leaks, we also identify the best way to access them and take care of the repair work with the least amount of disruption to building material. Brining in plumbers with state-of-the-art technology and training to use it is the best way to avoid repairs that require tearing up floors, walls, or ceilings.

How is Leak Detection Done?

If you notice a spike in your water bill, an increase in humidity in your home, or discolored spots on your walls and ceilings, there’s a very good chance you have a leak somewhere within your home. Finding out just where the leak is coming from requires special devices and skills that eliminate guesswork. The last thing you want is an inexperienced plumber who has to guess where the leak is coming from.

Our professional plumbers will start with a visual inspection, looking for damp spots, mildew growth, and warped floorboards or wallpaper. After that, they’ll use listening equipment. For especially hard to find leaking issues, we’ll use video pipe inspection, which sends a mini camera on a long fiber-optic cable down your drain to give our plumbers a view of the pipe interior. If you suspect a leak or haven’t had maintenance done in awhile, just give our team a call to inspect your pipes.
