Concealed Water Leaks

Concealed or hidden water leaks commonly flow or leak unknown to the property owner until that high water bill hits your mailbox. Porous coral allows most Miami underground water leaks to percolate down into the ground undetected, hidden and concealed until the high water bill indicates a water pipe leak problem. 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

Miami Leak Detection Testing

Open your Miami Dade County water meter and visually test 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 test 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.

Leak Detection Information

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.
