Finding and fixing leaks are the most common calls we receive for plumbing services. Finding a leak ASAP can help you avoid pricey water damage.

How to Figure Out if You Have a Leak
If you suspect you have a leak but can’t locate the proof, check your water meter:
- Confirm no water is being used inside or outside your home.
- Look at the leak indicator on your water meter. The indicator is typically a triangular dial or miniature silver disc. If the dial is moving, you probably have a leak.
We can track down the point of the leak and get it fixed before you spend more money or possibly damage your home.
