Plumbing Leak DetectionCommonly Diagnosed Plumbing Leaks

Universal Plumbing, Heating, and Air specializes in identifying and fixing plumbing leaks. Plumbing leaks are often caused by a malfunctioning or defective sink, bathtub drain, radiator, or toilet. Often the leaking pipe is behind a wall or under flooring.

When you call Universal Plumbing, Heating, and Air for a leak detection estimate, we thoroughly check all of these places plus many others to find the source(s) of your leak.

Once we have found the root of the problem we make any necessary repairs, which may include replacing parts such as faucets or pipes, re-caulking or resealing. Universal Plumbing, Heating, and Air can detect and repair leaks quickly so your place of business or home is back to its full potential as soon as possible.


How to Locate Pipe Leaks

If you suspect a pipe leak, you can take the following actions before calling Universal Plumbing, Heating, and Air to confirm the presence of a leak, or simply call (949) 669-7549 for expert leak detection services.

  • Check the water meter with water off - Turn off all the water in your home, including taps, faucets, washing machines and showers or baths, then monitor your water meter. If the water meter fluctuates, you may have a leaking pipe.
  • Seeing mold or foul odors - If you notice any moldy smells or see mildew or mold near a pipe or place with running water, that may be indicative of a leak somewhere.
  • Watch your water bill - If you notice your water bill has increased even though your water usage has not, this may signify a leak. If you can not find an above-ground leak, there may be an underground pipe leaking, which can be remedied by the professionals at Universal Plumbing, Heating, and Air.
  • Run a test - If you think your toilet basin is leaking, add some food coloring to your water in the basin. Wait about 10 minutes then check the toilet bowl. If there is any color in the water in your toilet bowl, you have a leak in your basin that allows water to flow into the bowl.
  • Think about the age of your pipes- If your home or place of business is more than 25 years old it may be time to check the integrity of your pipes. An older plumbing system can cause leaks and even further damage which will end up costing you more money in the long run.
