With our dedicated team, state-of-the-art technology, and swift service, we're committed to identifying and fixing leaks before they escalate into larger issues.

How We Detect Possible Leaks Around Your Property

Finding a leak can be tricky, especially when hidden behind walls, under floors, or underground. That's why we utilize advanced leak detection methods to locate leaks quickly and accurately. Our team is equipped with the latest technology and techniques to ensure precise detection without unnecessary damage to your property. 

Some of the cutting-edge methods we utilize include:

  • Acoustic listening devices: This technology allows us to detect the sound of water escaping from pipes. Even the smallest leak emits a distinct noise, which these sensitive devices can pick up, guiding us to the leak's location.
  • Thermal imaging cameras: We can visualize temperature changes caused by escaping water. This method is incredibly effective for identifying leaks hidden in walls or under floors, as leaking water typically has a different temperature than its surroundings.
  • Endoscopic cameras: For hard-to-reach places, our flexible cameras offer a closer look inside pipes, drains, and other concealed areas. This real-time view helps us pinpoint leaks that are not immediately visible.
  • Moisture sensors: By detecting moisture levels in walls, ceilings, and floors, these sensors help us determine the leak's extent and precise location. This method is particularly useful for identifying the early stages of water damage.
  • Pressure testing: We can identify areas where leaks may be present by monitoring how water pressure changes within your pipes. This technique is particularly useful for systematic checks throughout your plumbing system.

The Hidden Danger of Slab Leaks

One of the more sneaky and potentially damaging leaks is a slab leak. These occur when pipes under your home's concrete foundation break or crack, causing water to seep into and damage the foundation. Over time, this can cause severe structural problems that can be costly to repair.

At SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter, our professionals are trained to identify the early signs of slab leaks—such as inexplicable sounds of water running, damp flooring, or unusually high water bills—and employ our advanced detection methods to pinpoint their exact location. Tackling slab leaks early is vital, and with our efficient, non-invasive approach, we ensure your home remains safe and your foundation intact.
