Leak Detection in Cedar Hill, TX: How Can You Detect Leaks?

Posted on: January 9, 2016

“LDUCH – Leak Detection Unit, Cedar Hill,” this particular gritty, crime drama, might not be blazing the small screen any time in the near future. However, trying to find the source of a leak in your own home can make you feel like a real gumshoe.

Like most crime scenes, there’s usually some evidence that leads you in the right direction.

Do you have a leak?

One of the first steps in leak detection is checking the water meter. Turn off all the faucets, and hold off on the laundry. Check your water meter. Write down the reading. If in two hours the water level has changed then you have a leak.

Is the leak inside or outside of the house?

Turn off your house’s main shut off valve to stop the flow of water into your home.

Record your water levels again and keep an eye on the leak indicator. This tool can be a different color or shape depending on the water meter model. If the leak detector is moving, then the leak is outside of your home. If the water meter reading is unchanged and the leak detector is stable then the leak is outside your home.

If the leak is outside your home…

If parts of your lawn are looking particularly green or you have to mow one section more often than the rest, it could be a sign that your water or sewer line is leaking.

If the leak is inside your home …

Listen for water running around your toilet and faucets while the main shut off valve is engaged. Also feel the bottom of your cabinets for any dampness. Look up at the ceiling? Are their any water rings or bows?

You’ve tried it all but…

Does that pesky leak keep evading you? Don’t doubt your super-sleuthing abilities just yet. Some leaks can occur as water leaves your home, and is much more stealth. Don’t be afraid to call for backups. At Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning we’re masters of leak detection, surveillance and arrest. We’re local (really local, our office is on Hood St. in Cedar Hill), reliable and ready to get on the case!

I'm very happy with Dial One




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

I've had Dial One doing my plumbing for years, and due to a very disappointing experience with a different company, I now have them doing my heat & air as well. They're truly professional and committed to providing some of the best service I've ever seen from a home services company.

Quick response




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

Had a cracked water connection they were able to locate quickly and repair. I realize there is labor and parts to consider but it took them less then 10 minutes to locate the leak the part was less then 10.00 but I was charged $670.00. I understand when they give you an initial quote they have no way of knowing the repairs you would think once they realize it is a simple job they would adjust their original estimate at these prices I can not afford them

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

Killen was early and knowledgeable about the plumbing issue I was having. He prepared me for the worst outcome, then he found out it wouldn't be the outcome he originally warned about. He and his apprentice were very efficient at fixing my plumbing problem. I recommend him and DialOne Johnson to anyone with plumbing issues.


Great... all the way around
