How to Detect a Water Leak

As a homeowner, there are a couple of ways you can check for a water leak.

  • Faucets: check for leaks by placing an empty bowl under the faucet.  Wait for an hour and check the bowl. If there is water inside, then you have a leak.
  • Toilets: open the back tank of the toilet and add a few drops of food coloring. Don’t flush the toilet for at least 30 minutes, if the food coloring has moved to the toilet bowl, then you have a leak.
  • Underground:
    • Visual inspection: look for wet spots around your property. It could be a moist spot that never dries or an unexplained steady stream of water. These are telltale signs of a water leak.
    • Meter Reading: find your water meter and write down the meter reading. Don’t use any water for a few hours and then read the meter again. If the number has changed, you have a leak.

If you are not sure of your findings, give us a call. We have advanced equipment to detect and locate water leaks using acoustics (sound), thermal and infrared cameras (heat), and tracer gases (good for pipes buried deep down).
