To assess if a leak is present, the main shutoff valve off of the home will need to be turned off. Once the shutoff valve is turned off, turn on a faucet inside the house.
If water continues to flow out of the faucet after several minutes, the shutoff valve is not working properly. If water does indeed stop flowing, there is no leak in the line.
One will then need to locate the water meter and open it to find the small triangle on the dial of the meter. Take a few minutes and monitor its movement. If the dial is moving, so is the water.
If the dial is not moving, the leak may be inside the home. Check all water using appliances for any type of leak such as washer machines, faucets, and toilets. Turn on each appliance one by one and check the water meter after each one. If the dial on the meter moves, you have found the leak.
Our Leak Pro technicians are ready and well equipped to find any water leak in your lines. We use a variety of methods to locate water lines and find leaks. Highly sensitive microphones are used to hear the water’s movement through the lines to detect the location if a leak is present. To verify the leak, nitrogen air is pumped into the water line while microphones are above ground listening for the leak escaping from the line. Leak Pro specializes in locating leaks below slabs and can also find leaks in sprinkler systems.
