Sometimes there are leaks that aren’t even noticeable and then there are some leaks that are oftentimes ignored.  Water leaks contribute to potential water shortages in Houston and can also be quite damaging to other parts of the house structure.  When a house has structural damage, the home deteriorates faster which can ultimately lead to a collapse causing injury to the occupants.

Water leak detection and searches can be completed periodically by checking the components of the home’s plumbing system.  A water leak device can also be installed.

The Plumber typically installs one of these two water leak detection systems:

  • Passive Leak Detection System. This type of system is typically a battery operated, stand-alone device which produces an alarm sound when the moisture system gets wet. A Passive Leak Detection System enables any homeowner to be able to locate the water leak and have the necessary repairs completed. In order to ensure this device runs continuously, the battery should often be checked.
  • Active Leak Device System. This system sounds an alarm when it finds a water leak and shuts the water off automatically. It often has a flow sensor or moisture sensor to monitor water leaks.


Active Leak Detection Systems come in two types:

  • The Individual Appliance System monitors all leaks from appliances and has an automatic shut off to the water supply when appliance leaks are detected.
  • A Whole House System monitors all leaks in entire house and automatically shut the home’s main water supply to off when a leak is detected. These types of systems send a signal to the valve by using a wiring connection or radio signal.

If you do not possess a water leak detection system, you can check your home yourself for water leaks.

Water leaks typically develop in the following areas:

  • Laundry room (near washer or faucet)
  • Toilet and Bathroom (near faucet, water heating system or shower head)
  • Basement or Garage (near hot water system or evaporator cooler)
  • Kitchen (near dishwasher, faucet or water heating system)
  • Spa or Pool
  • Water meter
  • Patio
  • Lawn (near garden, irrigation system or turf)

Water leaks can be detected through sound and sight and this can be a simple task.  This is ultimately true for bigger leaks but not for smaller leaks.  It can be virtually impossible to detect small leaks without a water leak detection test being performed.

You can keep an eye out for leaks by seeing if your toilet has water moving from tank to the bowl when it isn’t even being flushed or even when toilet flushes by itself.

The Plumber can find the leaks in your home as well as check for unknown leaks with our leak detection device and search.  We will show up on time and give you the honest service you deserve.
