What do I do if I think I have a leak?
The very first thing to do when assessing the problem of a leak is to locate the pipe
. Pipe systems
are found in a number of places, including under the ground
, under foundations
, and within walls
. The type of pipe locating to be done will vary depending on the general area where the leak has occurred.
For more information on different types of leaks see these resources:

How are leaks located in residential properties?
In recent years, an electronic leak detection
system has been developed and implemented. The system makes use of a series of sensors placed at intervals along the pipe. These sensors monitor sounds within the pipe and are triggered by anomalies. Since most systems do not have this, the most common way to locate the leak is to have a look at the plans for the home to determine the layout of the plumbing system, and then look for physical cues such as saturation to pinpoint the exact or approximate location of the leak.
In many cases, demolition or excavation
will be necessary to expose the pipe for repairs. In any case, water will need to be shutoff for a short period of time to allow for effective repairs
to be completed.
