Q: Once you find the leak can you repair it?
A: Our service specializes in locating leaks and pipes. We do not dig up or repair the leaks.
Q: Can you find a leak through concrete/asphalt?
A: Yes, we can locate leaks in pressurized water pipe though cement slabs, asphalt driveways, gravel, grass, you name it.
Q: What does an indoor leak survey entail?
A: If you have an active leak but don’t want to rip out a whole ceiling or wall looking for the source we can find it for you. The survey starts with an inspection using thermal imaging and a moisture meter. If the the leak is coming from behind drywall the next step is to drill a 1 inch test hole and find the exact source with an inspection camera. In this way most surveys conclude with a 100% positive leak location with minimal damage.
Q: Can you find leaks in my irrigation system?
A: Yes, we can find leaks in irrigation pipes as well as determine if you have leaking control valves.
Q: What if I can’t find my irrigation control valves?
A: We have the equipment to find lost control valves.
Q: What next steps should I take after having my leak located?
A: Contact a plumber to schedule a repair. Depending on the location you might also need to have your other utilities (power, gas, etc.) located before digging. There is a free service that will do this for you. “Call Before You Dig” can be reached by dialing 811.
