How Can A Leakage be Detected?

Without seeing water shooting out of a pipe, it can be difficult to determine the location of the leak, especially when your water lines or sewer lines are underground and beneath a hard surface such as concrete or pavers. If left untreated, the leak can cause costly damage to your home or office.


Water leaking out of pipes or water lines not only causes a sound (similar to a hiss) but also a vibration of the pipe. The vibration can be detected in both longitudinal and latitudinal directions. The longitudinal vibrations are used to determine the approximate area of the leak. Once the approximate area is determined, the latitudinal vibrations are used to pin-point the exact location of the leak. Using acoustic vibrations, water leak detection equipment can quickly and easily locate leaks without causing any damage to your property.


Water leak detection equipment and video camera inspection equipment is a valuable tool for finding leaks in both residential and commercial properties. When a leak is detected, it is important to repair the leak as soon as possible to avoid costly damage.

Leak Detection Experts

Under Paved Surfaces

We are able to use our equipment to locate leaks under asphalt, concrete, brick, and pavers. If you don't want to or can't dig up your paved surfaces in order to find the leak, this is an excellent option.

Unpaved Surfaces

We can also find leaks under unpaved surfaces, such as gravel, dirt, and grass. This is ideal for individuals who don't want their landscaping disturbed.

Within Structures

We can also locate leaks within structures, such as behind walls, under floors, and in ceilings. Leaks within walls and ceilings can cause serious damage to a property, as they can create weak spots. In addition, leaks can also cause mold and mildew to form, which can be harmful to your health.

Homes and Offices Built on a Slab

We are also able to detect leaks in homes and offices that have been built on a slab. Houses built on a slab are especially susceptible to leaks because the plumbing is often embedded in the concrete. Leaks can occur in the joints where the pipes connect, or in the pipes themselves. We use state of the art equipment to locate these leaks and fix them quickly and efficiently.

Homes and Offices with Basements

Homes and Offices with Basements: We can also detect leaks in homes and offices that have basements.
