Water Leak Detection in Dallas, TX

Leaky pipes are a common problem no matter where you live or how old your plumbing is. That doesn’t mean that they are ever a picnic to deal with, however. Leaky pipes can cause all sorts of problems even before you realize that they are there. And because your pipes are tucked away either inside the walls of your home or underneath your yard, problems often need to become quite severe before they show any dramatic signs on the surface.

Whether you are interested in having your pipes checked for leaks just to be safe, or you strongly suspect that there is already a leak somewhere in your system, Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning is the company to call. We provide leak detection services and have extensive experience finding and repairing leaks in pipes both inside and outside of your home.

Never ask “Where can I find leak detection service near me?” again! Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning is the plumbing company to call when you need a leak detector in Dallas. Contact us now!

Common Causes of Leaks

Leaks in pipes can develop for any number of reasons. For example:

  • Your pipes may simply be old and beginning to degrade to the point where their integrity is compromised
  • Extreme weather conditions can cause pipes to crack and begin leaking, especially if the water in them freezes at any point
  • Some leaks are simply a result of improper or failing connections between pipe segments

Leak Detection FAQs

How can you tell if you have a water leak?

Depending on the leak location and severity, you may notice pooling water, mildew-like smells, mold growth, or damp spots on ceilings, walls, or floors. Hidden leaks in walls may go unnoticed, though you may see an increase in your water bill due to unexplained high water usage or notice occasional sounds of dripping or flowing water. If you suspect a leak, call Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning to quickly find its source with our advanced leak detection methods.

How much does a running toilet increase a water bill?

The cost depends on the severity of the leak and the cost of water in your community. Even a gallon per hour, which is a relatively small leak, can add up to about 720 extra gallons of usage per month, while a larger leak may be thousands of gallons a month. This can increase your bill by anywhere from a few dollars to $70+ per month, depending on water costs.

What is a slab leak and what are its symptoms?

A slab leak results from a damaged water or sewer pipe in your home’s foundation or slab floor. It can result in damage to the foundation itself, and common slab leak signs include unexplained high water usage, a high water bill, cracks in the concrete slab, a pool of water on the slab, frequent sump pump operation, or water pooling outside near the foundation.

How do you check for slab leaks?

Unless you can see water pooling or visible cracks due to settling, it can hard to detect slab leaks. Our professional plumbers use a combination of visual inspections, pressure testing, and other techniques for water leak detection.

How do you know if you have foundation problems?

If a slab leak has damaged your foundation, you may notice cracks in the concrete slab or foundation walls, cracks in interior drywall due to settling, warped or uneven floors, or doors and windows that are tight, out of square, or that no longer close properly.

How much do slab leaks cost to fix and are they covered by Insurance?

The cost depends on the severity and location of the leak, and how much of the foundation must be removed and repaired to access the pipe, and the specific concrete slab repair methods used. Many homeowners insurance policies may cover the foundation repair but not the plumbing repair itself. Some will cover the slab repair only if the leak was caused by another covered event, such as a fire. Check with your insurer for more information. At Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer slab leak service in Midlothian, Plano, DeSoto, Red Oak, and the surrounding areas.

How to Find Leaks in Your Pipes

Regardless of the cause of your leak, you need to find it before you can get it fixed. This is not often as easy as it sounds, but if you know what to look for you will often be able to catch a problem before it gets too bad. In fact, just knowing that you are at a high risk for developing leaks—if your pipes are old or if they are often exposed to extreme weather conditions, for instance—is a good enough reason to have a professional come out and take a closer look.

You should also monitor your water bill for signs of unexplained water usage increases. There are certainly some times of the month or of the year when you can expect to use more water. But if your usage is going up all of a sudden for no reason that you can discern, chances are there is a leak somewhere in your system.

You should also suspect a leak, of course, if you notice damp spots on your ceiling or walls or if water collects in unusual parts of the basement. Unexplained puddles in your yard are a sign that there could be a problem with the pipes running underground.

Great overall experience

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

A great overall experience from beginning to end. I appreciated all of the time Daniel took to examine my existing system, ask questions and make recommendations on a replacement. It was clear that not all companies are willing to do that. The installation team showed up on time and worked quickly to remove the old system and get the new one into place. Everyone was very nice and professional, I highly recommend the entire team.

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

I don't write reviews. So, you must know this is a really good company for me to be taking time to write this... We've been home owners for 20yrs. We've used so many different plumbing companies, it has been exhausting wondering "are they going to do a good job? are they ripping me off?" Dial One Johnson was recommended to us by a neighbor and they are TOP NOTCH! We've had them out to service sewer line blockages (old house, roots growing, yuck but they solved the issue!) and now a broken water heater issue. In all service experiences, the guys are professional and patient. They take time to share their knowledge in layman's terms, which I completely appreciated! Their service fee is the lowest I've seen, so I felt taken care of (not taken advantage of). The Gals who manage the calls are so polite, always cheerful and work to get a service provider out as soon as possible. And best of all, they have a REALLY affordable yearly service/maintenance plan that I am signing up for- because it comes with all kinds of savings and PEACE OF MIND- that I now have professionals taking care of my plumbing, heating AND AC needs! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this CompanY!

Great service very informative awesome

James did a wonderful job

Above and Beyond the call of duty!

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

James came to a rental property with very unique plumbing issues several times. I live out of town and he continually sent me pictures and called me with issues. I SO appreciate his dedication and persistence. He thought “out of the box” and was able to fix everything. He spent lots of time, did great work and prices were reasonable. He was there until 6:30 on a Friday the first time he came. Thank you James and Dial One Plumbing. You are my new plumbers!
