Leak Detection

Leak Detection Service

24-7 Plumbing Leak Detection Service

24-7 Plumbing’s experienced professionals find water leaks behind walls and under concrete slabs and asphalt not only run up your water bills, but can also cause structural damage to your home or property.  There are various types of plumbing leaks that can occur in your home’s pressurized (hot and cold) water pipes and drain lines.  Some leaks are easily found by visual inspection, while other leaks are more difficult to diagnose, locate, and repair.

To best diagnose where your leak is coming from, call a leak detection company that has the experience and equipment to locate the leak and fix it right the first time; call 24-7 Plumbing.  If leak detection is not performed to locate the leak, the only alternatives are to begin cutting holes in walls and floors to get an idea of where the leak is located or re-pipe the property.  Both of these alternatives can be very costly, and at times unnecessary.

24-7 Plumbing partners with Leak Tracker, who has the experience and equipment to quickly locate your leak.  Once the leak is found, they will contact us to describe the source and location of the leak.

Leaks Below The Slab

Sub-surface leaks (slab leaks) occur in hot and cold water pipes under the concrete foundation of your home.  Slab leaks are typically the most difficult leaks to locate, because they produce no clear visual clues as to what type of leak is present, let alone the location.

Common slab leak symptoms include:

  • High water bill
  • Constant sound of running water in the pipes
  • Hot water temperature is low or reduces very quickly

The process to locate a slab leak typically takes 1-2 hours.  Once Leak Tracker locates the leak, they will excavate, expose, and place a temporary clamp on the leak, giving you the opportunity to have water use until 24-7 Plumbing arrives to make the permanent repair.

Leaks Above The Slab

Leaks that occur above the slab generally proved clues to their location.  These clues include:

  • Visible water intrusion
  • Wet carpets
  • Wall and baseboard discoloration
  • Wood floor damage

For above the slab leaks, Leak Tracker utilizes a combination of moisture detection and ultrasonic equipment to quickly identify the source of the leak.  These leaks can become difficult if the source of the leak is hidden in a wall or enclosed by cabinetry.

Drain Leaks

Drain leaks are often misdiagnosed as pressurized leaks on the hot or cold water pipes.  Leak Tracker will use a combination of visual inspection tools and moisture detection equipment to isolate and locate the source of the drain leak.

Symptoms for drain leaks are:

  • Visible water intrusion
  • Bad odor
  • Insects near the source of the bad odor
Service Main Leaks

Service main leaks occur between the water meter and home.  These leaks occur in pipe that is trenched into the ground and covered by a variety of surfaces such as grass, asphalt, or concrete.

Symptoms for Service Main Leaks are:

  • High water bill
  • Spongy yard
  • Water seeping through cracks in the concrete or asphalt

The process to locate service main leaks usually takes 1-2 hours.  Once the leak is located, Leak Tracker will excavate, expose, and place a temporary clamp on the leak, giving you the opportunity to have water use until 24-7 Plumbing arrives to make the permanent repair.

Structural Leaks

Types of structural leaks located and diagnosed include:

  • Window leaks
  • Water intrusion from exterior sources
  • Wood floor damage
  • Air conditioning condensation leaks
