How Non-Invasive Water Leak Detection Can Save You Money

There are two types of leaks, those you see and those you don’t. While both can cause damage, but undetected water leaks can go on for weeks or even month without being noticed. This is when it can get dangerous! It doesn’t take long for mold to grow, structural damage, higher than normal water bills, and the need for costly repairs. 

What To Do If You Suspect a Water Leak 

You don’t see any water leaking from your pipes, but you suspect a plumbing leak. It could be from a number of telltale signs. Warm areas on the floor, the sound of water running when all the appliances and faucets are turned off, a musty odor, peeling wallpaper, blistering paint, unexplained puddles in the yard, or a spike in your utility bill.

Now What Do You Do?

How Non-Invasive Water Leak Detection Can Save You Money - Water Leak Detection Blog - Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - 1(12)You can check the water meter

With everything that uses water turned off, check the water meter. Is it still registering? If it is you may have a water leak. Take a picture of the meter’s reading. Then check back in about 30 minutes, just make sure no water is used in this time frame. Check the meter, compare it with the picture you took. It should be the same, if not, you probably have a plumbing leak. 

What Next?

Walk around your house, check the outside hose connections, inside under all the sinks, and behind appliances (washing machine and refrigerator) for leaks.  If you still can’t find the source, it is time to call the professionals at the Leak Doctor. 

The Best Leak Detection Tools 

The last thing you want is someone to come in cutting into wall or digging into the floor trying to find the leak. Meanwhile, they are causing unnecessary damage. Instead the Leak Doctor advanced technology is non-invasive. Which means we won’t cause any destruction to your home.

Ultrasound: Our technicians are trained to utilize the most advanced digital ultrasonic inspection system. Leak Doctor’s sensitive ultrasound devices can “listen” at a frequency beyond the human range of hearing. To our instruments, even the tiniest leak makes a traceable noise.

Endoscopic Video: Our video inspection equipment allows us to see inside your plumbing system to detect unexplained blockages and cracks in plumbing, which are the most common sources of leaks. While other plumbers may resort to tearing out sections of your home's walls, we can pinpoint these blockages and cracks from the surface to prevent unnecessary damage to your home.

Thermography: We utilize state-of-the-art thermography, which is similar to a color infrared photograph. With it, we can identify tiny temperature differences that can lead us to leaks.
