Is your water bill outrageously high? If you didn’t fill up a pool or shower six times a day last month, then it’s safe to assume you have a water leak. Don’t feel bad if you didn’t notice: most water leaks aren’t as obvious as a faulty tap. In many cases, a leak occurs behind a wall or underneath a slab. Luckily, with some help from our experts at Chris Wilson Plumbing & Heating Repairs Inc, and the latest water leak detection methods in Palm Desert, CA, you can get an accurate and long-lasting solution for your home.

Common Signs of a Water Leak
As mentioned, some water leaks are often out of sight, but there are still some signs you should be aware of, to ensure you get timely leak detection services. Some of the most easily identifiable symptoms include:
- Outrageously high water bill/meter reading
- Mold and mildew in your basement
- Random wet spots on your floorboards
- Cracks in your home’s foundation
- Running water sounds in the middle of the night
- Low water pressure in specific fixtures or areas of your home
The longer you wait to call a professional, the more damage will happen to your home. In the case of mold and mildew, it can also pose a serious health concern for your family. Over time, that mold can grow and spread throughout your home, so catching it early is essential to reducing mitigation costs.
Our plumbing contractors can locate the leak quickly and offer you a quality pipe repair, keeping your home safe and your plumbing working in top shape.
How Is Water Leak Detection Done?
The best way to detect a water leak is by using minimally invasive leak detection equipment and technology. Our plumbing specialists use this type of equipment to check common areas for water leaks in your Palm Desert, CA home, including:
- Crawl spaces
- Basement slabs
- Walls and flooring
- Service lines (from home to meter)
- Hydronic lines
Some other plumbers will just guess where a leak is located or rely solely on visual inspections. While this can take care of the obvious leaks, it often neglects the smaller ones that can cause the most damage in your home. We won’t do that. With our technology and equipment, we can pinpoint the exact location of the leak and use non-destructive means to fix it.
