Leak Detection in Monmouth and Ocean County NJ
Unexplained wet spots in your home, soggy areas in your yard, musty smells, the sound of water running when no water is being used, or unexpected jumps in your water bill can all indicate a water leak. Most water leaks, themselves, are not complicated to fix, and even many underground leaks can be fixed with minimum invasiveness through one of our trenchless techniques. However, if left unrepaired, a water leak can cause major problems for a home or business owner: it can cause damage to walls, floors, ceilings; threaten the structural integrity of the building; and create a thriving environment for mildew and mold, including toxic molds. While many people do not think of temperate climates like the ones we have in Ocean and Monmouth Counties when they think of toxic mold, the reality is that black mold or toxic mold can grow and thrive in our area, especially in conditions created by plumbing leaks. These molds can threaten the health and welfare of your family, turning an inconvenient situation into a very serious one.

What are some of the common sources of leaking water? If the standing water is in a yard, there can be several sources for the leak: swimming pools, spas, landscape features such as sprinkler systems, and water features can all have leaks that impact ground integrity. Of course, soggy areas in a yard can also indicate a leak in a water main or utility lines, both potentially serious problem that should be remedied as soon as possible.When the leaking pipe is in a home, it is often behind a wall, under a slab, or in the basement, where it may be difficult to detect the source.
We may not be superheroes, but we do use a sort of x-ray vision to see through your walls to help us diagnose the problem! We have infrared equipment that uses heat to see through the walls, roof, and even sometimes parts of the slab of your home, helping us identify the source of a water leak. Once a suspicious area is identified, we can use TV video pipe inspection to get a closer look at the trouble-area, from the inside-out!
