How To Locate a Hidden Water Leak Without Digging Up Your Property

The latest research shows the typical Atlanta home loses between 2,000 and 20,000 gallons of water a year due to leaking pipes and plumbing fixtures. When these undetected or ignored water leaks not only waste water, they waste lots of money and causes a significant amount of damage, that insurance companies don’t usually cover.

The main water supply line coming into your home is often times the culprit of a plumbing leak.  Since it is usually buried 3 feet below the ground, it is difficult for the home owner to even know it is leaking.

This type of leak can quickly lead to structural damage to the home. Be alert to wet soil where the supply line enters the house or if there is water in the meter box. If your water bill is more than you think it should be, contact the professionals at the Leak Doctor.

Instead of digging up your lawn or landscaping, we use specialized equipment.

Ultrasound  Even the smallest water leak makes a sound. Our sensitive ultrasound device can hear at a frequency beyond anything we can hear.

Endoscopic Video  This allows us to see inside your plumbing pipes to detect corrosion, blockage, cracks, and leaks. This takes the guest work out of locating the source of the leak.

Thermography  Allows us to identify the smallest temperature differences, similar to colored infrared photography.

Pipes, faucets, shower heads, and toilet fixtures, don’t last forever. Over time the wear and tear gets the best of them and that’s when they start to leak.

As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to keep up on the maintenance of all these fixtures. That is why most insurance plans don’t cover water leaks and the damages they caused.

To Save Money, Be Proactive

If you suspect a water leak or have older pipes and fixtures, take some time and inspect them.   If you’re not able to locate anything, it may be time to call a professional.
