The Company to Call for Water Leak Detection in Central Indiana

Free Leak Detection with Repair Contract

Have a leak? The company most homeowners and businesses trust for water leak detection in Central Indiana is John Fowler’s Plumbing . We use state-of-the-art electronic detection equipment that can locate pinhole-sized leaks behind walls and under floors.

While some line leaks are easy to spot, others can be quite tricky. When a pipe forms a leak, the water will typically just drop conveniently from the source. While it’s true that trickling water is still ruled by gravity, it is also governed by the laws of electrostatic attraction and resistance. You can even

How Electronic Leak Detection Works

Electronic leak detection systems work on acoustic principles. These systems are sometimes called “electronic slab leak detection.” When John Fowler’s Plumbing  comes out to detect and locate your line leak, we will bring out our specialized leak detection equipment.

Electronic leak detection equipment is pretty fascinating. To locate the source and direction of the leak we use specialized microphones, frequency filters, and amplifiers. When water moves through the lines, a trailing reverberation is sent throughout the entire plumbed network. Leaks have a unique sound signature that can be isolated from any other sounds within a home or business’ plumbing.

This equipment can locate leaks behind walls, under floors, below slabs, and virtually anywhere on the property.

Water Leaks are Bad for Your Property and Your Health

Even the small leaks can drastically impact your home’s structure and your health over time. So, if you see pooling water or finding water spots on your walls or ceilings, it’s best to have the issue corrected as soon as possible.

In as little as 48 hours, pooling water can lead to mold and mildew issues. And, over time, a leak that goes untreated can damage your foundation, drywall, and the structural components of your home or business.

Sometimes it’s Not a Plumbing Leak

While we’re always happy to visit your home or business, sometimes what appears to be a plumbing leak turns out to be something else. Before calling out a plumber to diagnose the issue, you may want to make sure the the water spots or puddles aren’t coming from some other source. Here are a few sources of water pooling that are often mistaken for plumbing leaks:

Overflowing gutters. If it’s been some time since you last cleaned out your gutters, you likely have a buildup of debris which can cause blockages. After a significant rainfall, the water in your gutters can seep through the eaves. Water spots and stains can appear on ceilings and walls many feet away from the source, so it’s best to rule this out before calling out a plumber.

Roof-related issues. Missing, bent, or loose shingles can cause water to leak through the membrane and plywood, eventually leading to water stains on your walls or ceilings. Flat roofs on commercial buildings are especially susceptible to this issue.

Cracks in the foundation. After a heavy rain, cracks in the foundation can allow water to seep through and cause water to pool in basements. If the suspected leak only occurs immediately after rain, a crack in the foundation is a likely culprit.
