Our Process: How We Pinpoint Leaks

Knowing that your plumbing has sprung a leak is excellent, but to repair the problem area, you must first find it. This is where Pilot Plumbing’s leak location services come in handy. Leaks are a relatively simple defect that plumbers resolve quickly with the right know-how, but only if they can locate the leak. Our hidden leak detection services are indispensable when dealing with a mystery leak.

How We Find Plumbing Leaks:

1: Inflatable Cut-off Points

Our Plumbers will work to narrow down the location of the leak by using several inflatable balls to cut off water flow to several distinct sections of the lines.

2: The Pressure is On

This process is repeated in areas that fail to maintain water pressure until our plumber can identify the portion containing the leak.

3: Next Steps

Your plumber can either attempt to repair the designated area or continue to pinpoint the exact location of the drip.

Confirming Leak Location
To identify the presence of a leak in your plumbing system, our qualified plumbers use a combination of these three techniques:

Leak Listening

While it cannot pinpoint the location of a leak, electric devices can effectively hear the presence of leaks in water lines.

Pressure Tests

We block the flow of water in your lines using an inflatable ball. If there is a decrease in water pressure during this time, this implies the presence of a leak.

Pilot plumbing was an amazing experience.  The company sent a very knowledgeable individual out to assess the damage and addressed all my concerns while also staying within my budget. I would definitely use them again, they were a pleasure to work with and made it out in a timely manner when everyone else was booked out 2 weeks.  They stuck to the timeline. I’m extremely grateful to the whole team for getting it done with honesty and integrity.
