How do you know exactly where the leak is?
It may be impossible to locate the water leak by yourself. Especially without the proper equipment. A leak detection plumber may be the answer. To find your leaks – hire an experienced plumber who has the proper leak detection equipment to locate it.
How do plumbers find a hidden leak without tearing into the walls?
Leak detection plumbers have leak detection equipment that can quickly and accurately find the source of water leaks. Even if the leak is under concrete or behind a wall. A leak detection plumber can use ground microphones or listening discs (acoustic listening devices) to find water leaks.
An acoustic amplifier can be used to amplify the sound of plumbing leaks that may be too quiet to hear naturally.
Your plumber may also use video inspection tools and plumbing cameras. Video inspection can pinpoint the exact source of a leak quickly.
A common video inspection tool for detecting water leaks consists of a camera and light mounted onto a fiber optic cable. This can fit into a pipe and send feedback directly to the plumber through a monitor.
Using either leak detection method allows your plumber to find the leak and evaluate different repair options.
