How Can Water or Sewer Leakage be Detected?

Identifying the location of a pipe with a leak can be challenging, particularly when water lines or sewer lines are underground and beneath hard surfaces like concrete or pavers. Left untreated, leaky pipes can cause significant damage to your home or office.


We have invested in state-of-the-art equipment to detect leaks, employing various methods to ensure accurate results. Leaks create a unique sound (similar to a hiss) and cause pipe vibrations that can be detected by location. Longitudinal vibrations help determine the general area of the leak in plumbing systems, while latitudinal vibrations pinpoint water leakage to its exact location. Our advanced tools include infrared thermal imaging, which helps us identify leaks with precision limiting unnecessary damage.

Where Can We Detect Leaks?

Hoffman Plumbing's leak detection service uses pinpoint precision and accuracy to save you time, money, and reduce repair costs by knowing exactly where the water leak is located. Our state-of-the-art listening equipment and video camera inspection tools help us quickly and easily locate burst pipes and slab leaks hidden areas under various surfaces without causing damage.


Under Paved Surfaces: Our leak detection team uses equipment to see water stains find leaks beneath asphalt, concrete, brick, and pavers.

Unpaved Surfaces: We can detect water leaks under gravel, soil, and grass as well.

Leak Detection Within Structures: We also locate leaks behind walls, under floors, and in ceilings, which can cause serious water damage, weaken structures, and lead to extensive damage from mold and mildew growth.

Under Slab: Homes built on slabs are particularly vulnerable to leaks since pipes and water systems are often embedded in the concrete floor and walls.

Under Basements: Our plumbers can detect a slab leak in homes and commercial properties with basements.


What Causes a Water Leak?

Determining the cause of a water leak can be multifaceted and complex. Some issues that may necessitate a leak detection service include:

  • Faulty plumbing due to poor installation or aging pipes and faucets

  • Broken pipes caused by freezing temperatures, vibration, or high pressure

  • Corrosion from age, debris, or minerals

  • Natural disasters like flooding and earthquakes

  • Clogs and blockages from debris, tree roots, or sediment
