You don’t want to leave this “detective work” to anyone. The old fashioned “listen, hit and miss” approach just isn’t going to cut it.

Pinpointing removes your guesswork, saving you time, money, and property damage!

Once we have uncovered the source of your leak, we will consult you on our findings and offer options for repair or replacement. We can also provide estimates of partial or complete pipe replacements (see our Repiping page for more information).

No matter where the leak is, inside, outside, walls or ceilings, we can help!

Our hi-tech specialty equipment, extensive training and experience have saved our customers thousands of dollars in Santa Ana, repair and unnecessary property damage over the years!

How to determine if you have an underground or hidden leak…

People often have no idea that they even have a leak until they receive their monthly bill for water bills. This can be revealed slowly over time as a pin-hole leak develops, for example, or more suddenly, depending on the type of leakage.

Another way people realize that they have a water line leak is simply by hearing it. This can be quite distinct if your pipes are copper because copper is a good conductor of sound. It’s often louder at your faucets because they can act as “mini-amplifiers.”

You’ll obviously want to check every valve in your home to make sure there’s nothing left to run, even in a trickle. Two often overlooked sources would be toilets and tubing. Toilets often run without notice because the water simply flows through the bowl. If that’s the case, turn it off at the supply stop-if that stops the leak and the sound, then you’re lucky! Give us a call: 866-945-4359 and we’re going to have it “tuned up” and back in service in no time. Outside hose faucets can easily be left on or not turned off tightly enough. Take a quick walk around the perimeter of the road.

You will also want to inspect the rest of your house for any obvious signs of damage or moisture. Check your water heater, under your dishwasher and sink. Take a close look at your floors, walls and ceilings. If you don’t have any luck with any of these steps, you’re likely to have an underground lead. Time to call the leak detectives…

Isolating the leak

In the meantime, you may want to isolate the leak (optional) while waiting for the plumber to arrive. The next steps are quite simple to determine if the leak is underground outside or inside, maybe under your floors. With any “luck” you might find out it’s out in your water main. This is the main water supply from the street water meter to your house connection (or from your pump, if on a good system).

First, turn off your main water valve to the house. This is usually just outside or inside your home or near a water heater, water softener or filter, depending on the layout. This is supposed to shut all the water down to the entire house. Test this by opening a faucets to ease the pressure and drain it down until it stops flowing. Now listen to me again…

Do you hear any water running? If you’re silent, you may have just isolated the leak below the floors of your home. At least now you’ve got control of the leak and you can turn the water on and off until it’s repaired to conserve water.

On the other hand, if your house’s water is off tightly, but you still hear the sound of running water, you may experience a leak out of your water main. Again, this is typically a line that runs underground between your main water valve and the water meter near the street.

First, walk along an imaginary line between those points where you feel the pipe might be running. With any luck, you may come across a particularly wet or moist area, or even some of the water bubbling out of the ground (depending on how deep your main line was buried).

Well, if so, congratulations! You know now that at least your floors aren’t going to have to be disturbed, plus you just saved the plumber some time.

One, final step…

If your leak is small and/or the sound is faint or you just want to make sure you’re not “hearing things,” you may be able to confirm the leak by checking the water meter.

First, confirm that all the faucets and valves in and around your home are shut down tightly as before-if anyone else is at home, be sure that they also fit for a few minutes. Now check to see if the meter is spinning. If it’s an old meter, you might have to make a mark and time it for a while until it’s noticeable. However, most water meters have a “leak detector” dial that is usually a small, star-shaped head that rotates around at the slightest movement of water passing through.

You did everything you could…
