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!

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

We smelled gas in our fireplace and Brian turned it off for us and explained what needed to be done in a very clear and professional manner. He also pointed out the dripping water in our water heater and corrosion down the side of it and recommended a new water heater. We had him install a new one and are very pleased with the service!

Starting with my initial call and interaction with the Office Manager Andy, the service was outstanding. The onsite team beginning with Matt, the leak detection person and ending with the plumbers (Jonathan and James), the service was excellent. I highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs.
