FREE Water Leak Detection Service

(for plumbing, not pools)

We provide leak detection and leak repair services in Southwest Riverside County from Eastvale to Murrieta.

Water leaks can produce very high water bills and cause catastrophic damage to your home.

Don’t waste time or money, call us immediately if you suspect a water leak.

If you see any water damage, turn off the water to your home immediately, then call a leak specialist plumber.

How much does leak detection cost?

We provide FREE Water Leak Detection with no strings attached.

The average rate for leak detection across southern California is around $350 to $400 for guaranteed leak detection using high-tech sound, thermal, and camera equipment.

$350 to $450 is also what most insurance companies usually pay plumbers for locating and capping a typical foundation leak.

We charge nothing, zero, zip, nada, to the homeowner for leak detection. We accept whatever insurance will pay.

And we guarantee to find any water leak no matter how difficult it is to locate.

We start with a simple water meter test for leaks to isolate if it’s indoors or out.

Next we’ll use high-tech leak detection equipment to  minimize the need to open walls, ceilings, and floors to find the leak.

After we locate the leak, we’ll present you with all options to fix it with flat-rate quotes to do so.

If you have any water damages, we’ll also provide a FREE water damage report for your insurance company and work with your adjuster as needed if you choose us to fix the plumbing.

We’ve got a ton of experience working homeowners and insurance companies on water leak and damage claims. We’ll guide you through the process to help you get your claim completed successfully.

Is leak detection covered by insurance?

You have to check with your insurance company and policy but in the great majority of cases that we’ve seen, insurance will cover the full cost of locating and capping off water and sewer drain leaks.

Whether the leak is in the slab foundation, a wall, floor, or ceiling does not matter. Both you and your insurance company want and need the leak to be located and stopped.

Leak detection is almost always covered by insurance companies except in cases of neglect and poor maintenance.

Insurance companies want to mitigate any damages, and that means stopping the leak(s).

So don’t neglect any drips, call a plumber as soon as you see or suspect a leak and get it found and fixed!

Will insurance cover leak repair costs?

If re-routing the leaking water line will prevent additional damage and costs, that is usually covered by insurance.

If you have a water leak in your foundation and have continuous floors like tile or wood, then re-routing the plumbing is often the best solution for your insurance company and your home, and they’ll usually cover the costs to do so (minus your deductible).

In most cases, restoring water-damaged drywall, ceilings, walls, and flooring is usually covered by your insurance company but policy details vary, so review yours with your agent.

Coverage to replace damaged personal effects and furnishings is often limited. Again, we highly recommend reviewing your policy details with your agent before you have water leak issues, and almost everyone will eventually have leak issues and potential water damage.

Leak Detection Equipment We Use

leak detection equipment we use

Detecting plumbing leaks can be a challenge because your home’s plumbing is often buried in concrete slab foundations and sealed in the walls.

If the source of a water or sewer leak is not obvious, you will want to contact an experienced leak detection company.

Trained technicians and specialized leak detection equipment can quickly find the leak source and repair it as soon as possible.

The good news is that today’s plumbing leak detection companies and equipment can avoid tearing up floors, or tearing down walls or ceilings to find the source of the leak and fix it.

We use several different types of leak detection equipment, including:

Video inspection that can see into the pipes by sending a camera down the pipes to find the location and cause of a leak.

Ultrasonic detection that uses sound technology to measure sound loss variations in the pipes.

Infrared leak detection that allows plumbers to see what is inside walls, beneath your floors, and underground the piping under ground.

Smoke detection in which harmless smoke is pumped into the pipes to emerge where a pipe leaks.

What are the common symptoms of leaky plumbing?

  • Cracks or wet spots appearing in your walls, floors, or ceilings.
  • Warm spots on the floor where hot water is leaking underneath.
  • Mildew or unusual moisture under carpets.
  • Hearing running water when all the fixtures in your home are turned off.
  • Nasty smells coming from floors or walls near drains or sewer piping.
  • Shifting or cracking of your foundation/slab.

Signs that you may have a water main leak include:

Decreased water pressure: Rust, scaling, and mineral deposits can build up inside and narrow your water main pipe significantly.

Increased water usage & bill: Periodically check the water usage in your home to see if there’s a sudden and unexplained spike in water use and water bill. A spike is often a sign of a new leak going unnoticed.

With a smaller and slow leak in the underground water main, damage may go undetected for months or years until it becomes too large to repair inexpensively.

Soggy areas in your yard: Areas in your yard of unusual vegetation growth, wet or sinking ground. With a large enough water main leak, the water shows up on the ground’s surface around your home. Squishy, muddy areas that aren’t caused by faulty sprinklers are likely coming from underground.

Unchecked, underground water main leaks can damage landscaping and your home’s foundation, adding repair costs. It’s better to detect leaks and fix or replace the water main early.

Fouled water coming into your home: Traces of rust or dirtier water coming from your faucets likely come from a deteriorating or split water main.
