A Clearwater resident contacted us in regards to a city notice of high water usage. High water bills and large amount of water usage can be attributed to water leaks and possibly slab leaks (water leaks underneath the concrete that you cannot see). The first thing we recommend Florida residents to check when they receive a high water bill is their water meter. On every city water meter, their is either a triangle or a small wheel called a leak indicator. If all of the water is turned off in your home or business, and the leak indicator is spinning, you have a leak somewhere on your property. When you receive a city notice of high water usage and you check the leak indicator on your water meter, make sure that nobody is using water inside the home or business. The leak indicator will spin whenever water is running through the water meter. See the picture below to see an example of a leak indicator on a Clearwater Florida water meter. The leak indicator has been circled in red. In this particular water meter, we found a colony of ants. Be careful when opening water meters as you never know what’s inside that could get you!
Tampa Infrared Water Leak Inspection. Hidden water leaks and moisture problems in Tampa and around the Tampa Bay Area can be very challenging to locate and properly identify.
With the use of infrared technology, water leak detection has become a little bit less destructive to Tampa homes and businesses. Infrared technology let’s the operator of the equipment “see through” walls, ceilings, and in some cases even floors. Infrared inspections allow leak detection technicians to identify differences in temperature in Florida building materials know matter how small the variance of the temperature. Even just a 1/2 of a degree can show a big difference on our infrared water leak equipment. Typically when building materials are wet from water damage or moisture issues, they will be “cooler” or have a lower temperature than the surrounding building materials. This allows us to easily identify which areas are damaged by water or water leaks without having to remove ANY drywall, flooring, tile, etc. If you suspect a water leak in your Tampa Bay area home or business, give us a call today to perform an infrared water leak inspection service for you. You’ll be glad you did!
In addition to performing infrared water leak inspections, we also perform emergency water extraction services, water damage restoration services and mold removal. Water damage or moisture issues that aren’t caught and treated in a timely fashion typically turn into mold issues.

An insurance adjuster contacted I Find Leaks to request an infrared inspection on a Tampa property with water damage. The Tampa home experienced an issue with water damage after a plumbing pipe began leaking in a wall behind the toilet. A water damage restoration company was called in to dry out the moisture in the walls to prevent possible mold growth. The water damage restoration company removed their equipment before the property was dried properly. This resulted in the request for the infrared inspection. As you can see in the infrared pictures below, there is still wet drywall and baseboards in this property. Our water damage restoration team was called in to finish the job.
