Leak detection in Miami for your high water bill must be performed by a water leak test specialist. Leak testing water pipes underground and under concrete deploying the latest technology in leak detection and testing equipment. Water leak detection and testing equipment is required to accurately pinpoint the location of the leaking underground Miami water pipe. Amplifying the sound of water, gas or steam with an electro acoustic microphone is required to find leaks in plumbing systems where different construction materials are present. Electronic sensor technology employs amplification and filtering to aid an experienced technician during leak detection and testing service.
Concealed or hidden water leaks commonly remain unknown to the residential home or commercial building owner until that high water bill arrives in the mail. Porous coral allows most Miami underground water leaks to flow down undetected, hidden and concealed until the high water bill indicates a water pipe leak problem. It is now time to start asking some simple questions: Does my toilet run water some or all the time when not in use? Did I fill my swimming pool during this high or excessive water bill cycle? If the answer is "no" to these questions, then this is the time to call our Miami leak detection specialist Plumber Service. Underground or hidden water leaks under a concrete floor can cause your tile to suddenly pop out or crack. Water leaking under a Miami concrete floor are subtle in nature that require an inspection or evaluation investigating other clues in the home or building.
Leak Detection Tips for Miami Dade County Water and Sewer Home Residential Customers
Open your Miami Dade County water meter and visually check if the triangular or round flow indicator wheel is spinning. If the flow indicator is spinning, then shut down the main shut off valve at the house wall. Make sure this main valve is in very good condition or new, because if water internally leaks across this valve, this will present a false investigative pathway. Now that we have confirmed that the main house valve at the wall is fully shut down with certainty, let us again check the flow indicator for spinning movement. If this flow meter is spinning then we have a water leak between the water meter and the main shut off valve at the house wall. This leak is underground and can be located with sound or thermal imaging equipment. Air pressure testing is also very helpful in these exterior leak testing situations.
If the water flow sensor wheel has stopped spinning after performing the leak detection testing procedures above with main valve at house in the off position, then this indicates the leak is located downstream of the main shut off valve. Now we will leak evaluate deductively. Open the main shut off valve, then Shut down the toilets and check the water meter flow indicator. If wheel is spinning then water flow is still indicated. Shut down the main cold supply for your water heater(s). If flow sensor wheel inside water meter stops then we have an underground hot water leak. If the water meter flow sensor wheel continues to spin then we have an underground under floor cold water leak downstream of the main shut off valve. These types of leaks require professional equipment an years of experience. Now is the time to call The Dick Rosher plumbing leak detection team.

WATER LEAK DETECTION AND USING THE PHYSICS OF SOUND AND WATER TO LOCATE YOUR WATER LEAK
Sound and water molecules react upon each other, producing unique identifiable sound waves. These sound waves produced by a water leak travels in the form of waves sourced from frequency fluctuations that are very subtle sounds (vibrations) not heard by humans.
When there are obstructions to water leak sound waves, these water leak sounds cause water molecules to vibrate and refract or bounce from solid objects such as underground, beneath a concrete slab, pipes, rock and soil. These are the sound frequency signatures that our “state of the art” leak detection equipment is calibrated to detect. Our leak detection equipment also displays these variable frequency signatures for our water leak service technician to analyze while investigating and comparing frequencies and physical inspection testing of the water distribution pipes.
WATER LEAK INVESTIGATIONS AND SOUND REFRACTION
Another characteristic created when sound and water combine is called refraction. Refraction is the frequency amplification actions and reactions of sound traveling through a medium such as water. The leak detection specialist must consider that the refractive properties of sound traveling through different mediums such as water, soil (many types of density), rock concrete and air. This physically alters and changes frequency characteristics during the onsite water leak detection study.
Our Miami leak detection specialist may start modulating the flow rate decreasing or increasing the water leak velocity during this water leak investigation. The production of sound submerged beneath water surfaces poses very special challenges. The water leak velocity creates turbulence and vibrations. These variable cycle vibrations of molecules are sound and this sound is now traveling through the water that produced the sonic waves.
This confusing scenario is often encountered during water leak investigations. The volumetric leak rate causes much sound refraction that cascade into variable frequency wavelength fluctuations sensed by the specialized sonic detecting equipment deployed by Dick Rosher Plumbing of Miami. This physical refractive property is what causes many inaccurate conclusions during water leak investigations.
This refractive property did recently thwart all the military and private sector search efforts at sea for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. This multinational undersea sound detection for the aircraft was the largest and most expensive in aviation history. The plane’s black boxes even had integrated beacons that emitted sound for locating the black boxes for 30 days. This search effort failed due the refractive properties of the sound traveling through water.
At Dick Rosher Plumbing, we consider ourselves water-sound specialists. Our theory is, if only the black boxes (developed in the 1960’s) emitted sound vibrations at much higher frequencies that exceed the above described variable and refractive properties of sound traveling through water, the wreckage could be found. But rest assured this complexity would not apply nor hamper our ability to find your water leak. Our certified water leak specialists are very experienced at locating all water leaks considering this special investigative challenge.
Our water leak detections are guaranteed 100% to provide accurate investigative conclusions and develop intelligent durable water pipe leak repair solutions. Our equipment combined with our experience and our continued studies on water and sound guarantees our success conducting leak detections in Miami Dade Florida.
