Do I Have a Leak?
Plumbing water leaks can be caused by all sorts of things — aging pipes, inferior materials or workmanship, shifting soil, and more But sooner or later they all lead to water damage to your home or business. Some are obvious, while with others you might not even be sure that you have a leak. Here are some of the many signs you should keep an eye out for.
- Warm, damp, or moldy areas on a wall, floor, or ceiling
- Curling or bubbling vinyl flooring
- Blistering paint or wallpaper
- Low water pressure
- The faint sounds of dripping, hissing, or running water
- Water stains
But often your only clue will be a jump in your water bill.
If you suspect a leak but can’t track it down, it’s time to call in professional water leak detection services. Years ago intuition and exploration were the only water leak detection methods. That frequently lead to making several holes in the wall or an ever-widening hole in the floor before the location of the source could be found. But non-destructive methods are available today in Temecula.
There are a couple of simple tests that determine whether or not you actually need a leak repair.
The first you can do yourself. Turnoff everything that might use water (don’t forget ice makers, washing machines, dishwashers, and toilets). Then take a water meter reading (see the link below). Wait an hour or two, then make another reading. If the two numbers differ, there’s a leak… somewhere.
A plumber can also use a sensitive pressure meter to make a quicker yet more accurate test.

Temecula Slab Leak Detection & Repair
Most Temecula buildings constructed in the recent decades use several inches of concrete slab on grade as the foundation. Often sewer, drain, and supply pipes run underneath that. Slab leak detection through flooring and concrete is difficult, and you may not even realize you have a problem until there’s a major problem. Without showing any signs within the building, they often cause erosion that undermines the foundation, leading to uneven settling and structural damage to your home or business.
Jack hammering through the concrete for a slab leak repair is expensive and disruptive, so you’ll want the job done right. Our Temecula slab leak repair crews use only top-quality materials and deliver exceptional workmanship. In most cases they can also offer money-saving options such as pipe lining (inserting a thin inner lining into existing pipes) and re-routing new pipe around the outside of the slab.

Electronic Leak Detection
Many Temecula plumbing services use RF (radio frequency) pipe tracing gear to at least know where the pipes are. We take that to another level with state of the art electronic instruments. That includes sensitive ultrasonic microphones to track down the hiss of escaping gas after we’ve drained and pressurized your plumbing. We also use thermal imaging that quite literally paints a picture of the tiny temperature differences that result from leaking hot or cold water and damp building materials.
