Signs of a Leak

Are you worried about a potential plumbing problem in your house?

Look out for these signs of a leak:

  • Unusual sounds - Do you hear water running even when no water is being used?
  • Mildew - Is mildew appearing in unexpected places?
  • Rising water bill - Have you noticed an increase in your water bill without actually using more water?
  • Cracks forming in walls or flooring - Are there cracks forming in your walls or flooring?
  • Unexpected wet spots or hot spots - Are there any wet spots, discolored spots, or hot spots on your floor or walls that appeared unexpectedly?
  • Changes to water meter/pump - Your water meter or pump can help to determine if you have a leak. If you have a meter, wait an hour and check the meter again. If it has changed, then it could mean that you have a leak. With well pumps, listen to make sure the pump isn't running when no water is being used. If it is, then it could be indicative of a leaky pipe.

How Do You Detect Plumbing Leaks?

There are several ways our Louisville leak detection plumbers detect leaks in your plumbing system. Here are our most common methods:

  • Visual Inspection: This involves a thorough examination of your property for signs of leaks, such as water stains, mold growth, and damp patches.
  • Pressure Testing: Plumbers can utilize pressure tests to identify a drop in water pressure, which may indicate a leak.
  • Listening Devices: Specialized listening tools can pinpoint the sound of escaping water, even if it's hidden underground or within walls.
  • Infrared Cameras: These cameras detect temperature variations caused by leaks within your plumbing system.
  • Smoke Testing: Smoke is occasionally used to pinpoint the location of a leak by pumping it into the pipes.
  • Video Inspection: For hard-to-find leaks, a small camera can be inserted into the pipes to provide a visual inspection.
