Q: Once you find the leak can you repair it?
A: Our service specializes in locating leaks and pipes. We do not dig up or repair the leaks.
Q: Can you find a leak through concrete/asphalt?
A: Yes, we can locate leaks in pressurized water pipe though cement slabs, asphalt driveways, gravel, grass, you name it.
Q: What does an indoor leak survey entail?
A: If you have an active leak but don't want to rip out a whole ceiling or wall looking for the source we can find it for you. The survey starts with an inspection using thermal imaging and a moisture meter. If the the leak is coming from behind drywall the next step is to drill a 1 inch test hole and find the exact source with an inspection camera. In this way most surveys conclude with a 100% positive leak location with minimal damage.

Q: What next steps should I take after having my leak located?
