Do you need Leak Detection done in and around your home?
How to Detect Water Leaks
Use your water meter to check for leaks
Even if your home is built on a slab, we have certified Plumbers that are able to detect the leak using our specialized leak diagnostic equipment. We have the ability to hear running water no matter where it is in your home. The process utilizes multiple aspects of leak detection, allowing us to pinpoint the leak within only a few feet. This means that you will not have to worry about someone excavating your flooring and then finding out they were wrong about the location of the leak. Leak Detection
Make sure no water is being used inside or outside of your house.
Locate your water meter and check the leak indicator to see if it is moving. Depending on the brand of your meter, the leak indicator could be a small triangular shaped dial or a small silver wheel that rotates when water is flowing through the meter. If the dial is moving, chances are, you have a leak.
Or, you can also take a meter reading and wait 1 or 2 hours and take another meter reading (make sure no water is used during this time). If the reading has changed, you have a leak.
There are several undetected ways through which water manages to leak out. A leakage need not be a large one. Even the smallest leaks if left ignored for long, can lead to severe damage to the structure of the building. Such leaks can be found inside construction, behind walls, under concrete slabs and asphalt of a building. Sometimes, drains, landscaping and fountains also experience leakages and can go undetected for a long time. If at any time you experience that a water body containing water around your building seems to be losing out on water at a more than the reasonable rate or that a space that should not be moist shows signs of moisture, there is a very good chance there is an underground water leakage.

Through our time-tested processes of leak detection, we can ensure underground water leak detection and repair by using minimum resources, time and money with minimal disruption to the property.
Having Trouble with Under Slab Leaks?
Do you feel that the concrete slabs under your kitchen are leaking? Can you feel the walls of your house growing moist? There can be several causes for an underground water leak. Most prominent of them being aging and rusting pipelines inside the walls. Other reasons may include the use of poor quality pipes, incorrect installation or soil, and ground movement. Irrespective of the cause, ignoring an underground water leak can be expensive, both in terms of a shooting water, house repair bills as well as the structural safety of the house since the constant leakage can weaken the concrete and lead to walls collapsing without prior warning.
