When a leak starts up in visible drainpipe, you’ll know right away that you have a problem. All you need to do is call our professional plumbers, and they’ll be out to you to have the leak fixed, fast. But what about the many pipe leaks in your plumbing system that you can’t see?

Signs You May Have Hidden Water Leaks
Start at the beginning: if water leaks are hidden, how will you know that they are there so you can call the plumbers?
- Watch your water bills carefully each month. A sudden rise in your water usage that you can’t explain is one of the most common signs that you have a leak hidden somewhere.
- Damage and distortion to building material can result from a slow leak. Floor boards that are bulging and spots of discoloration on the walls are two of the warning signs of water building up from a leak.
- If you notice that there’s a decrease in water pressure from your fixtures, you might be losing water to a leak.
- If you don’t see an obvious leak, don’t make an attempt to look for it on your own. Professional plumbers will do the job faster.
How We Handle Leak Detection in the Twin Falls Area
Leak detection is a skill that makes use of special equipment. When our plumbers come to your house to locate for hidden leaks, they’ll first use their own training to narrow down where to search. Then they’ll use devices such as listening discs and microphones to pick up the sounds of escaping water. Another useful tool is the thermal scanner, which detects the changes in temperature around a pipe that is losing water. Once the plumbers have pinpointed the leak location, they’ll remove the necessary amount of building material to reach it and fix it, after which they’ll restore the material and cover up signs of the work.
