Signs You Have a Hidden Water Leak

Leaks that develop behind your walls are difficult to notice right away. You often won’t notice the problem until larger issues become apparent. Don’t let a hidden water leak turn into more serious water damage and ruin your home. Look out for warning signs:

  • Unexpectedly high water bill
  • Mold growth or musty odors
  • Water meter runs continuously
  • Bubbling wallpaper
  • Water stains on walls or ceiling

If you are experiencing any of the issues above and think you have a hidden leak, reach out to our experts for immediate leak detection in Dracut. We will help you track down the leak and present you with options for pipe repair or replacement. 

Our Noninvasive Leak Detection Process

New Era Plumbing & HVAC offers noninvasive leak detection services. We will use digital pipe locators to identify hidden water lines, and use the following methods to pinpoint the leak:

Acoustic leak detectors: This method allows us to identify leaks through sound. Your service technician will move the detector over the supply pipes and the area that produces the loudest noise is where the leak is likely to be found.

Infrared cameras: In some cases we will pair acoustic leak detectors with infrared cameras. With an infrared camera, we can locate hidden leaks through water temperature and movement.

Tracer gas: If an outdoor water line is leaking and acoustic or infrared technology is ineffective, we can track the leak using tracer gas. We will insert hydrogen and nitrogen into your pipeline, and wherever the gas escapes is where the leak is found. 

Contact Us for Early Leak Detection and Repair

A hidden water leak can develop for weeks or months before you realize there’s a problem. This makes it particularly important to be proactive as a homeowner and take the time to look for signs of trouble. 

Catching hidden leaks early on can help you avoid unexpected burst pipes, water damage, and other serious issues. Don’t wait until a plumbing emergency occurs. Call New Era Plumbing & HVAC for professional leak detection and repair as soon as you notice signs of a hidden water leak.

“I have used New Era multiple times and I am more than pleased with their work. This past winter our furnace was not heating up at all. With having a one year old it was critical to have our furnace working properly. They came out the same day and were able to repair the furnace. Thank you to the New Era team for working diligently and professionally. We always recommend them to our friends and family”.

“We are very pleased with the work New Era Plumbing did to get our very old A/C unit up and running today. Charley arrived on time and was incredibly thorough throughout the process. He explained things to me multiple times to make sure I understood the issues, and gave me many options for fixing the problem. We are crossing our fingers that we don’t need heating and cooling again soon, but when we do, we will call them back. Thanks for a great experience!”
