Water Leak Detection

When you have a leaking water, drain, or gas pipe, you need urgent attention from an expert plumber. If a leak is under the floor or in a wall, it may be difficult for you to know where the source of the problem is. Fortunately, our plumbers are equipped with electronic leak detection and in-line camera equipment to identify and locate problems in your wall, concrete slab, or underground. Tweedy Plumbing & Restoration is one of the best leak detection teams based out of Costa Mesa, CA.

It should come as no surprise that the best plumbers usually have a significant amount of experience in the industry. They have dealt with similar types of problems in the past, many times before. This puts them in a great position to get the job done both quickly and affordably & with minimal hassle to the homeowner. Choosing a plumber who is experienced in leak detection is no exception to this rule. But finding a company that is experienced in electronic water leak detection is even more important. Here at Tweedy Plumbing & Restoration, we’re both!

There are many reasons that electronic leak detection is superior to “old school” leak detection methods. For starters, one of the primary “old school” methods of locating hidden plumbing leaks is to bust through the concrete slab foundation in a home to expose the pipes running underneath the foundation. This is problematic for several reasons, not least of which, are the inaccuracy of the technique, and the destruction caused to the property during the process. If the plumber makes one bad guess on where he “believes” the leak is located, he may have to jackhammer through the floor multiple times or cut out multiple sections of the wall to expose leaking pipes! This amounts to higher slab leak repair costs and more hassle and inconvenience for the customer than is necessary.

With electronic leak detection equipment, plumbing leaks can be pinpointed at their source, through the foundation, or inside walls, without having to destroy your property! This means that we can guarantee the location of a leak by utilizing state-of-the-art equipment designed specifically for this purpose!

    How Do Most Water Leaks Start?

    There are various causes of leaks, and while some may be easy to diagnose, others require a professional Costa Mesa plumber for leak detection.

    • Faulty plumbing fixtures

      – Old joints or bad gaskets allow water to seep out, which results in damages and leaks after heavy usage. Leak detection services in Costa Mesa can help you identify and repair faulty plumbing fixtures before they cause severe damage to your home. Our Costa Mesa leak detection experts use state-of-the-art equipment to locate leaks, often fixing them quickly and efficiently.

    • Broken pipes

      – Old and poorly maintained plumbing fixtures can develop corrosion, resulting in weak and leaking pipes. Root systems from plats also can cause unseen damage to pipes. Our Costa Mesa leak detection technicians can promptly help you find and fix these leaks before they lead to severe damage and significant repairs.

    • Cracked sewer lines

      – On top of exposing you to various potential health risks, a broken sewer line can cause extensive damage to your home or business. Call us for reliable water leak detection services in Costa Mesa when you suspect your sewer line is cracked or damaged.

    • Leaking water heater

      – There are numerous reasons your water heater is leaking. It could be faulty connections, worn gaskets, or something else. Although uncommon, a leaking water heater can be caused by pressure accumulation and could explode. Call us for expert Costa Mesa leak detection services if your water heater is leaking.

    • Overflowing gutters

      – Clogged leaves and debris in your gutters can start to overflow during heavy rains, resulting in water seeping into your home.

    Water leaks may seem minor and insignificant at first. However, leaving leaks unattended can lead to significant damage and costly repairs. Call Tweedy Plumbing & Restoration, and our highly trained Costa Mesa plumber will locate the leak’s source and promptly make the repairs.

    Extremely professional, helpful, and thorough! Tim from Tweedy Plumbing provided excellent service and solutions for our issues!! Would highly recommend Tweedy Plumbing for any needs!
    Everyone from scheduling to service were great. Honest, to the point, and knowledgeable. They were able to fit me into their busy schedule withing hours...SAME DAY!!! I would recommend them in the Newport Mesa are for sure. FYI- they replaced the pilot assembly kit/thermocouple in my GE water heater. Not an easy task as it requires dis-assembly and taking the heater pan out.
