A homeowner in Seminole contacted us after receiving two very high water bills AND after having a new hot water heater installed. Turns out there was a slab leak on a hot water copper pipe under the concrete in the laundry room next to the water heater. If you receive a high water bill, call us! Usually, an abnormally high water bill is the sign of a hidden water leak.
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!

I Find Leaks was called to a house in Seminole in regards to a water leak. This water leak was located in a wall underneath a bathroom vanity. Using our infrared leak detection equipment we were able to locate this leak through the wall under the cabinet. A small hole was cut in the cabinet in order for the plumber to repair the water leak. As you can see in the pictures below, water leaks can cause water damage and mold growth over time. Water leaks are the source of problems that start small and can easily turn into large water damage or mold growth related issues.

I Find Leaks was called out to a property in Tampa in regards to a infrared leak detection / inspection. The Tampa homeowner was concerned in regards to a garage wall next to their water softener. The garage began to smell musty and the Tampa homeowners were concerned with a possible mold problem. We were able to use our infrared inspection equipment to locate a small leak in the wall on the plumbing pipe that feeds the water softener. We were able to locate this leak without causing any damage to the garage wall, and without exposing any possible mold growth to the air of the property which could indirectly spread to other areas or cause harm to the occupants. We can now open the wall under containment to remove the mold and have the water leak fixed by a licensed Tampa Plumber.

A Tampa homeowner called us in regards to water showing up in the closet behind a bathroom shower. At first the Tampa homeowner thought it may have been due to their kids overfilling the bath tub. With the use of our ultrasonic and infrared leak detection equipment we were able to locate a pipe leak on a plumbing line in the wall behind the shower. The pipe leak was located where copper meets PVC pipe. If PVC plastic pipe fittings are secured too tightly onto metal plumbing pipe, it will strip the threads and cause a water leak. Leaking water can lead to water damage and mold growth if not attended to as soon as you see the signs of a water leak.

A Tampa area homeowner contacted us in regards to water showing up on the floor in their laundry room. This Tampa homeowner could not figure out where the water leak was coming from. At first, they assumed it was from a leaking washing machine as the water was showing up near the washer. After replacing the washing machine and mopping up the water on the floor several times, they realized they may have a leak on the plumbing pipes inside of the wall or underneath the concrete slab. We arrived on site and performed an infrared leak detection for them which showed us where the highest concentration of moisture was in the wall in the laundry room area. There turned out to be a small plumbing pipe leak on one of the plumbing lines that feeds the washing machine. The wall was opened up in the exact spot needing repair causing minimal damage to the Tampa property. If leaking water is not taken care of soon after it occurs, it could potentially cause a problem with mold growth. Water is much easier to clean up in Tampa area properties than it is to deal with a mold issue.

A Dunedin homeowner gave us a call in regards to a water leak in her ceiling. The water leak was only showing up when it rained. With the discoloration of the drywall on the ceiling, the homeowner began to get a little concerned about water damage and possible mold growth problem. We were called in to perform an infrared leak detection to locate the source of the water leak. The water leak ended up being in the attic in this Dunedin home. We were able to pinpoint the location of the leak, so the homeowner could have a roof repair performed instead of replacing the entire roof.

We received a phone call from a Brandon Florida resident with the complaint of a high water bill. When we arrived on site at this Brandon home, the homeowner showed us the water bill which normally averages around 5000 gallons per month. For the past two months he was up to 9000 gallons with no out of town company or excessive watering of the yard. Our team of highly skilled leak detection technicians went to work to try and figure out the reason behind such a high Brandon water bill. We found a leaking plumbing pipe under the concrete slab of the home. As you can see in the picture, only a very small hole is needed to be made in the concrete to perform the Brandon plumbing repair. An infrared inspection of an adjacent wall revealed a high moisture issue because of the slab leak.
