Knowing the Different Signs of Leaks and When to Call for Advanced Leak Detection
The most obvious sign that you may need an advanced leak detection would be leaking water. A less evident sign may be that you hear the sound of running water when all taps are off and devices are not in use. Knowing the different types of leaks and when to call for an advanced leak detection could be your key to save those precious dollars.

- The consistent sound of running water even though all appliances are not in use and the taps are turned off could indicate plumbing leaks under the slab.
- A hot spot on the tiles or carpets could imply a hot water leak.
- Cracks or openings appearing in the floorscan be a result of a leak under the slab.
