Hidden water leaks on copper pipes can cause water damage to wood flooring, drywall, and cabinetry. The team at I Find Leaks uses the latest technology on the market today to locate hidden water leaks. In many cases, pipe leaks will occur and the damage may not be in the immediate vicinity of the water leak. Often times, water will show in the middle of hallways or door ways instead of exactly where the leak is occurring. This is due to the construction of homes in the Tampa Bay area as well as the path the water will take when it travels along wood studs attached to your concrete slab forming the foundation for walls. As you can see in the pictures below, a copper pipe leaked in a wall on the opposite side of a shower. The Tampa Bay homeowners didn’t realize they had a water leak until water started showing up in the doorway to the bathroom. By this time, the water had seeped underneath walls and flooring, and began to cause the wood flooring to buckle or discolor. If you see any signs of water damage, it’s a good idea to hire a team of leak detection professionalsto locate the source of the water leak in order to prevent further water damage.

A Palm Harbor homeowner contacted I Find Leaks in regards to a water leak detection needed in their home. The Palm Harbor resident noticed a substantial rise in their water bill over the past several months. A typical water bill for a single family home with two people should be around 5500 gallons of water usage per month. This particular property was using over 10,000 gallons of water per month. This is a very high water bill compared to what the normal water bill should be. Palm Harbor water bills can be very high if a water leak is present. Water leaks can be located underneath the concrete slab of your house and will never show any signs of leaking water inside your home. As you can see in the pictures below, this water leak was located underneath the concrete slab in the garage. Plumbing pipes can leak under slabs without you ever knowing, causing very high water bills. Leaking water pipes can also cause water damage and mold growth if left unattended.

We were called out to locate a water leak at a home in Dunedin Florida. Water appeared on the floor of the Dunedin home and appeared to be seeping out from under the baseboards. The owners of the Dunedin home thought it was from the large amount of rain we have had. After cleaning up the leaking water several times only for it to keep re-appearing, they decided to call us to perform a leak detection.
With our ultrasonic leak detection equipment we were able to locate a very small water leak in the wall of this home. The leak was caused by dissimilar metals touching each other over time. Copper water pipe was connected directly to galvanized water pipe and the two metals over time corroded one another. This caused a very small water leak as you can see in the pictures. Since this water leak was very small and was leaking water for a long period of time, it also caused water damage and mold to grow in the wall which will require mold removal services.
