All water leaks in a pipe produce sounds. An electronic leak detection system operates on that principle.

Electronic leak detection equipment amplifies the sound of the moving water, using microphones, digital amplifiers and filters – allowing the leaking pipe to be identified.

Once the leaking pipe is identified – then pressure in the line can be altered to create a specific sound that the technician uses to pinpoint the leak. The sound of pressure escaping from a broken pipe varies depending on the circumstances of the type of pipe, location and amount of water escaping.

National Plumbing leak detection technicians can detect leaks with a variety of non-invasive acoustic leak detection technologies. We can cost-effectively and efficiently detect leaks in difficult pipe types and situations without breaking ground or disrupting service.

The cost of leak detection can vary depending on the type of equipment required, the type and location of the water leak.

Finding and fixing leaks as soon as possible can reduce your water bill and prevent the need for costly additional services for any subsequent water damage.

If you get a large water bill and think you have a water leak – there’s a couple of steps you can take to see if you have.

You can take the measurement of your water meter and soem time later measure it again to see if it has moved.

1. Turn off all taps and stop using any water-using fixtures at your house (such a dishwashers and washing machine).
2. Locate your water meter. it will be between the curb and your property.
3. Record the reading of your meter.
4. Make sure that no water is used within your test time frame. Do not turn any taps on or flush the toilet. Leave a minimum of about 2 hours to test for best results.
5. After your test period – read your water meter again.
If there has been a change in your meter reading – then you have leak!

If you have a water leak that can’t be located by checking fixtures such as the toilet or taps – you may have a breakage in your water pipes. We recommend that you arrange for us to inspect and repair immediately.
