What Is Non Invasive Water & Plumbing Leak Detection? - Water Leak Detection Blog - Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - 1(15)If you suspect a plumbing leak it is important to have it repaired, but you may not know exactly where it is located. Whether you received a higher than normal water bill, noticed warm areas on the flooring, the water meter is still running when everything is turned off, or have unexplained mold, detecting even the smallest of water leaks is vital.

Randomly digging holes around your property isn’t exactly cost or time effective.  This is where non-invasive water leak detection comes into play.

When water leaves a pipe it creates a distinctive noise, not typically a loud sound. So, depending on where the pipes are located, the noise may not be heard.

Large water leaks produces a sound with a lower frequency, while a small water leak has a higher frequency.

Ultrasound: Especially designed with an acoustic sensor and an advanced signal processing, acoustic leak detection can accurately detect these frequencies in any type of pipe material.

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.

This advanced leak detection technology identifies the source of a leak, no matter where it is located, without breaking into walls or digging up the flooring.

Water leaks can start as just a trickle, but progress quickly, the easiest and most cost-effective way of solving the problem is to call a professional Leak Detector.

The team arrives in our familiar Leak Doctor trucks, we know the four Leak Doctor laws: Detect the leak, Pin-point the leak, Bring in the leak repair team, Leave the scene like we found it, with everything neatly cleaned up and placed in order.
