Water Leak Detection Services by Admiral Plumbing Services
Leaking pipes are one of the most common kinds of plumbing problems that plague homes.

Ways to Know You Need to Fix a Leak
"Wait, how will I even know I need leak detection?" That’s a good question: with leaking pipes hidden behind walls and sometimes down beneath stone flooring, it isn’t always immediately clear that you need to call a plumber. You must rely on smaller warning signs that will tell you it’s time for professional leak detection:
- Increase in water bills: Even a small leak that lets out a few drops per minute can make a noticeable rise in your water bills. If water costs make a sudden jump that you can’t explain, call for a professional plumber.
- Spots of discoloration on walls and ceilings: As water collects around a leaking pipe, it will start to destroy drywall. This will first become visible as brownish–red spots along the walls and ceilings.
- Drop in water pressure: Larger leaks can result in the water pressure decreasing around the house.

How Plumbers Locate Water Leaks

However, the tools are an important part of pinpointing the exact location of a leak so the plumbers won’t need to cause any unnecessary damage to reach the pipe. Among the leak detection devices that plumbers use for this job are listening discs, ground microphones, and pressure sensors. It requires special training to be able to use the data from this equipment for the best results.
