American Leak Detection, the service that has found nearly five million pool and plumbing leaks since 1974, services the San Bernardino area. They bring with them a track record of success that goes back thirty-five years. Known as the company that you need “before you need a plumber” American Leak Detection will offer beleaguered homeowners a respite from unexpected plumbing emergencies.
For pool leaks, San Bernardino residents can call in American Leak Detection to diagnose exactly where the problem is and how it can be repaired. They even offer a simple self-test on their website called the “bucket test” where you place a full five gallon bucket of water on to the first or second step of your pool. You mark the water level on both the inside and the outside of the bucket and then wait twenty four hours and measure it again. If the pool water (outside mark) goes down more than the inside water level, there is probably a leak.
American Leak Detection also offers a test to see if your home has a plumbing leak such as a leak under the slab. San Bernardino residents who have experienced a slab leak understand how important it is to detect it early. This is the type of leak that happens underground, below a fixed structure, and can cause major damage if allowed to get out of hand. Another self-test is the Meter Test. This test should be conducted for a 30 minute period, during which time no water is being used on the property. Close shut-off valves beneath toilets and fixtures and then read the water meter. Wait a half hour and read it again. If it has moved you have a leak.
These are just basic tests you can do and American Leak Detection has many more methods they employ when you call them in to find plumbing leaks. San Bernardino is positioned in a seismically active area so plumbing and pool leaks are common. The techniques used by American Leak Detection are non-invasive. Their specialists are more than plumbers — they don’t have to dig through your basement or under your kitchen sink to find what they are looking for. Any work done detecting leaks in your home will be done without a mess.
American Leak Detection uses infrared technology as well as sound sensitive listening equipment to detect leaks without having to dig up any concrete or flooring in a home. San Bernardino is lucky to have these services available to them. Residents no longer have to wait for something to go wrong and then call a plumber. Leaks can be detected before it gets to that point and major water damage can be averted. If you need to dig on your property, American Leak Detection can also locate public utility pipes and sewage lines before you begin. Because there is the danger you may hit gas or electrical lines while you are digging, American Leak Detection can tell you exactly what’s underground and where to prevent a minor problem from becoming a major disaster.
