Do you know what's worse than an unexpected water bill? An unexpected water bill that you didn't even realize you had! Leaks can sneak up on your home or business without you ever knowing it, but there are several ways to tell if a leak is present. Here are some ways you can detect a leak:
Look for signs of water in places where there shouldn't be any.
You should also look for signs of water in places where it shouldn't be. Water stains on the ceiling, walls and floors are common signs of leaks.
In a serious leak situation, your home or office may have water stains everywhere. Inspecting these areas can help you determine whether or not you have a leak problem!
Use your ears to detect leaks.
To detect a leak, you can use your ears. Listen for the sound of water running, dripping or running through the walls.
Use electronic leak detectors.
To detect a leak, you can use electronic leak detectors. Electronic leak detectors are portable tools that help you find leaks in appliances and plumbing systems.
To use an electronic leak detector, follow these steps:
Use a pressure gauge.
Check your water meter.
Another way to detect a leak is by checking your water meter. To do this, you need to find the water meter, which is usually located near the street or inside your home or office. If there are no signs of leakage on or around the meter, record its reading and recheck it after a few hours or days. If you notice that the reading has changed significantly between these two checks, then there could be a leak somewhere.

I called the number and had to leave a message. Within 10 minutes someone called me back. They came out within a few hours and fixed my drain. Clay, my technician, was professional, and knowledgeable with a great attitude (especially on a hot Friday afternoon)! Fixed my problem in no time. Their service is outstanding. And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
