Whether it is a large gash in a pipe or a small pinhole drip, the water coming out disintegrates the materials the pipes are made from. So that small leak behind the wall you didn’t even know existed, will just get larger over time, leading to more damages and higher repair cost.

Hidden Trouble

Most water leaks are hidden from view, whether under a concrete slab or behind the kitchen sink. Hidden water leaks can be detected in higher than normal water bill, a musty odor, unexplained mold, warm areas on the floor, blistering paint and peeling wallpaper.

Wasted Water

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, “The average family can waste 180 gallons per week, or 9,400 gallons of water annually, from household leaks. That's equivalent to the amount of water needed to wash more than 300 loads of laundry.”

Finding the Source of the Leak 

There are many reasons why a water pipe is compromised and starts to leak. It can be as easy as sealing a joint or replacing a washer. Other times it can be more difficult to locate the source. That’s when you need to contact a professional.  

Instead of guessing and breaking into a wall or floor, hoping you get the right spot. The advanced technology and experienced technicians at the Leak Doctor can pinpoint the exact location of the leak without causing any damage to the property.
