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.

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

Kerlin and Cameron were a pleasure to work with. They were polite, respectful, worked well together and explained all options and required decisions on my part with patience. The work they did replacing our kitchen faucet was flawless and they cleaned up everything as well as I could have! I commented the water pressure with the new faucet was noticeably better, Kerlin guessed correctly that we are on Rocket water. He foresees a white ring forming on the sprayer in time, and gave me the name of a product to remove it. We are very happy with the new faucet and the work Kerlin and Cameron performed. We look forward to calling Dial One Johnson Plumbing in the future. Thank you for your great service on the telephone calls as well.
