Fixing Leaking Taps and Pipes

Do you have a difficult case that maybe has stumped a few plumbers?  Is your water meter still spinning, even when all the water is off in the house, resulting in high water bills?

Do you have a difficult case that maybe has stumped a few plumbers?  Is your water meter still spinning, even when all the water is off in the house, resulting in high water bills?  You’ve checked the usual suspects, and nothing seems to be off. No one knows why the water is still running.  Let us come use our highly specialized and sensitive equipment to find the source of the water loss.  Is it a leak from a broken water line in your yard?  Under your house?  Or is it a toilet that is slowly but surely constantly running?

We used specialized GenEar listening equipment to detect subtle changes and the sounds of moving water, and are trained in its effective use.  It can find even tiny leaks that other methods may miss.

We also have the option of energizing some types of pipe electrically, to find out the location of the line, and follow it to look for signs of a leak, such as ground saturation or changes in grass or plant growth.

Our leak location methods are effective underground and under concrete, so you get a comprehensive leak location even if we never see a pipe, even if it runs under your driveway and across your front yard, there’s no exploratory digging or jack hammering, costing you a lot of unnecessary charges.  We can locate the leak and dig specifically and with educated information to protect your budget and your driveway and landscaping.

What should you do if your water bill is high?  First, turn off every water source in the house; toilets, sinks, tubs, etc., looking for obvious leaks as you go.  Is your meter still turning, indicating that you are still using and being charged for water when you shouldn’t be?  If it is, go back inside and turn off all the water at the shut off valves for each fixture; under the sink, for best results, find a shut off under your house that will eliminate whether it is in your house, or the supply from the city meter to your house.
