Indianapolis Water Leak Detection

Water Leak Detection in Indianapolis

A hidden water leak can result in major water damage. Don’t let this happen to your home! Call (317) 520-3569 to schedule immediate leak detection in Indianapolis.

Water lines can develop leaks due to freezing temperatures (which often happens with poorly insulated pipes), pipe decay, and damage from shifting ground or construction. But no matter what causes the leak, the result can create an emergency situation if not treated in time.

This is why we recommend immediate water leak detection as soon as you suspect a problem. Pristine Plumbing offers noninvasive leak detection services throughout Indianapolis and surrounding areas. Give us a call today for professional leak detection and repair!

Signs You Have a Hidden Pipe Leak

It’s often difficult to tell if you have a leaking water pipe, particularly if the pipe is hidden behind the wall. Many homeowners only find out about this problem after several months—or years.

Fortunately, there are early warning signs you can look out for:

  • Is your water bill steadily increasing?
  • Is there a moldy or musty presence in your home?
  • Does your water meter continue to run nonstop?
  • Do you notice your wallpaper bubbling?
  • Are your floors or ceiling starting to sag?

If you notice any of the above and suspect your home has a hidden pipe leak, contact Pristine Plumbing right away for an inspection.

Early Leak Detection and Repair is Crucial

Leaking water pipes should not be easily dismissed. They have the potential to create significant damage if not repaired in time. Unlike minor faucet leaks, hidden pipe leaks can lead to mold; destroy your floors, ceiling, or walls; and even affect the structural integrity of your home (which can happen with slab leaks).

Don’t let an emergency happen before calling for water leak detection. Get your pipes inspected as soon as possible and enjoy peace of mind knowing you’ve caught the leak in time!

What to Expect During Professional Leak Detection

Professional water leak detection is noninvasive and can quickly alert you to any problems affecting your pipes. We use the following methods when checking for leaks:

  • Acoustic leak detectors — With this approach, we are able to track down leaks through sound. We will go through the length of the pipeline and the section that emits the loudest sound is where the leak is located.
  • Infrared cameras — This approach is often used as a complement to acoustic leak detection. The advantage of infrared cameras is that they can help us locate leaks by sensing water temperatures and water movement.
  • Tracer gas — We typically use tracer gas to detect leaks in outdoor pipes that are buried too deep for acoustic or infrared equipment to work effectively. Nitrogen and hydrogen are placed inside the water line, and our technicians will follow the path of the gas as it escapes—the spot where it leaves your pipe is where the leak will be found.

Once we have an accurate understanding of the extent of the leak and how much of your pipes are affected, we will discuss your options for repair or repiping.
