While we won’t say that plumbing leaks are impossible to accurately find without professional equipment, we will say that most plumbing leaks are impossible to accurately find without professional equipment, as well as extensive experience. The thing is, most of your plumbing system is hidden from view—behind drywall, under sinks, and perhaps running beneath the foundation of your home. So, the problems that afflict your plumbing system can be hard for the layperson to spot.
This is among one of the top reasons we recommend that our customers schedule annual plumbing maintenance—so we can check on your entire system using tools like video camera inspection. Leaks can happen between maintenance sessions, however, and when that happens you need to know about it quickly so you can call and have the leak repaired before it turns into a huge disaster.
