When you’ve got a leak, it may be tempting to call up a one-stop shop for your plumbing and leak detection services, but there are important differences between Joe’s Plumbing and a specialized leak detection firm.

If you suspect you have a leak, the first step is to check the signs common to water leaks. These may be obvious, like a high water bill, wet areas in your yard, or sounds of running water. But you can also follow these steps to further identify the location – either indoors or outside your home.

If you discover a leak either inside your home or between the house and the water line, that’s where Clearwater Leak Detection comes in. Your everyday plumber doesn’t have the tools or expertise to find leaks in the water line, repair or replace the damaged line, and manage any state or local regulations involved with water line maintenance. We also handle new construction, trenchless pipe installation (ensuring minimal excavation), and detection in irrigation or pool systems. Indoors or out, we’re your #1 choice for leak detection.

We use specialized tools and equipment to detect outdoor ground leaks. Our thermal imaging equipment allows us to find pipes that are buried in sub-floors to find water leaks that aren’t readily visible. To detect water leaks within the ground, we deploy ultra-sensitive microphones that isolate the issue and help prevent excavation of the entire water line.

Our smoke detection can find leaks in roofs, windows, doors, and HVAC systems. Though it’s mainly used in finding sewer leaks, it has a helpful application for leaks that exist inside the home.

Technological advantages set us apart from your run-of-the-mill plumbing outfit. Their specialty is often limited to indoor piping issues and don’t consider themselves experts on water leaks originating inside the building or in the water line.

At Clearwater Leak Detection, we can solve your water leak issues and minimize your total costs by isolating the leak and performing necessary repairs. When you suspect you have a leak anywhere on your property, contact us for more details on our process.
