Leaks are among the most common plumbing issues that homeowners experience. They are also one of the most damaging.

How Do Plumbers Detect Leaks?

A licensed plumber might utilize one or more methods to find your leak, including:

  • Camera inspection – A camera is attached to a long fiber optic cable and fed through the piping system in search of a problem within the pipe. Once the source of the leak is identified, the plumber can pinpoint the location through GPS tracking.
  • Acoustic listening device – Plumbers’ most essential tools to locate leaks are ground microphones and listening discs. Through sound technology, the plumber can hear the sound of dripping or escaping water, even through a layer of concrete.
  • Heat scanner – Some areas are too noisy or too deep for acoustic listening devices. In this situation, a plumber can use a scanner that detects temperature changes. Since any escaping water has a different temperature than the surrounding area, it shows up on the scanner.

How to Find a Leaking Pipe

Pipe leaks aren’t always apparent. You might have a leaky pipe if you notice a spike in your water bill but haven’t increased your water usage. Another sign is the sound of running water when no faucets or appliances are in use. To test if you have a water leak, turn off all taps and appliances and note the numbers on your water meter. Return 2 hours later to recheck the meter. If the numbers have advanced, you likely have a leak.
