McCall Leak Detection
Let Wickstrom Service Co. Keep Your Home Safe
Do you have a plumbing leak? Most people would probably answer with a resounding “no,” but they could be wrong without even realizing it. In fact, plumbing leaks are one of the single largest wastes of water in the country, and a large majority of people who have them might not even realize it. This is because most leaks might not be immediately visible or easy to spot—leaks in plumbing lines that run through your walls, overhead, or even in the ground beneath your feet. And while these leaks are out of sight and almost impossible to detect on your own, they can cause serious damage to your property.

Signs You Have a Plumbing Leak
Plumbing leaks can be tough to spot. In fact, with smaller leaks or leaks that are completely hidden, there’s a good chance you can’t see the leak at all without tearing into your walls or ripping up your floor. Leaks in your irrigation system are also hard to find because dirt that covers these lines can absorb a lot of water, making them virtually invisible. However, if you know what to look for, you might be able to figure out if you have a leak and call our McCall leak detection team for help as soon as possible.
You might have a plumbing leak if any of the following are true:
- Your water bills have surged for no real reason
- You have unexplained wet spots on your floors
- You have an unexplained warm spot on your floor (it may not be wet)
- Paint is peeling off your walls
- One area of your yard is constantly wet or covered in puddles
Electronic leak detection typically uses an extremely sensitive microphone to listen for leaks. While our ears may not be strong enough to pick up on the sound of water dripping slowly from a hidden line, an extremely sensitive microphone can pick up this subtle sound, allowing us to pinpoint your leak quickly. We can also use what is known as the “pressure test” to further accentuate these super-sensitive microphones. By relieving the water pressure from your lines and replacing it with air pressure, our microphones can pick up on the tiniest sound of air leaking from a pinhole. This points our team directly where your leak might be and allows us to fix it properly.
Don’t Delay—Call Right Away!
Plumbing leaks typically get worse the longer they are left unrepaired, so don’t put a potential leak aside in your mind. In most cases, fixing the leak quickly can save you a ton of money and headache, whereas waiting often allows things to get out of hand. A tiny leak in one of your slab lines can cause major foundation shifting, huge cracks, or other damage that could jeopardize your home, so finding and fixing the leak quickly is extremely important.
