Leaking pipes are one of the leading reasons that people require professional plumbing repairs. Even a small leak, such as pinhole leaks, can lead to massive water waste, damage to building material, elevated humidity, and the growth of mold and mildew in a home.
Except for breaks along exposed pipes under kitchen and bathroom sinks, leaks are difficult to detect and locate. You will recognize signs that leaks are occurring, such as a rise in water bills and spots of discoloration along drywall, but unless you have X-ray vision, you won’t know exactly where the leaking pipes are located. For this job, you must call on plumbers with leak detection equipment and the skill to find where you need repairs.

Isn’t there a way to find the leaks myself?
Yes, sometimes. There are external signs that will point toward where a leaking pipe is located behind drywall, wood floors, or concrete slabs.
Cracks along slabs are a good indicator of where a pipe leak has occurred beneath. The most tell-tale sign for leaking pipes under drywall is moisture developing along the walls or rusty-brown discoloration appearing. If you have a schematic of your plumbing system available, you can look over it and match it with the spots on the wall to have an idea where the leaking pipes are hidden.
However, there really isn’t any reason for you to do this extra work, since you can’t repair a hidden pipe on your own. The work of reaching the pipe requires professional plumbers, and unless you have 99% surety that you know where the leak is located—something that is impossible without advanced leak detection equipment—you should never start to rip apart drywall or pull up floorboards to get to a pipe. And when it comes to slab leaks, which often need jackhammers to access… well, do we need to go any further in that direction? Make this work simpler, faster, and safer for your home and call for skilled plumbers right away. If you think or know you have a leak, step back and let experts with listening devices, thermal sensors, and pipe cameras pinpoint the leak location exactly and find the best way to repair it.
