Excel Plumbing has been the trusted leak detection company in Chicagoland since 2001. Backed by non-invasive methods and state-of-the-art equipment, we can accurately locate and repair slab leaks, plumbing leaks, pool leaks, and more. With expert leak detection methods and careful, considerate repairs, we can fix the leak and minimize the amount of damage to your home.

Water leaks are frustrating, destructive problems that can cause enormous damage to your home and take vast amounts of your time to remediate. No homeowner wants to hear that they have a water leak in their home. If you do experience a water leak, rest assured that professional technicians at Excel Plumbing can help mitigate damage and inconvenience with a timely response and the right repair for your particular situation.

Leak Detection Methods

We use a series of leak detection methods. The most popular detection methods include:

Meter detection: By testing the water pressure in your pipes and comparing it to the water pressure in a healthy pipe, we can determine if there is a leak present.

Infrared cameras: Using highly specialized infrared cameras, we take photos of your pipes from several directions. This way, we can see exactly where the leak is located and how severe it is.

Dig and drill: This is the most basic method. It involves removal of concrete, digging and drilling into your floor or walls to expose the pipe that is leaking. On completion of work, we will repair any foundation removed back to rough grade. This method works best if we already have an idea of where the leak is located

Signs you have a leak:

  • High water bill
  • Sound of running water when none is being used
  • Cracks form in walls or floors
  • Wet spongy floors or water stains
  • Water meter continuously ticks
  • “Sink holes” in grassy areas, or “undermining” of concrete/asphalt

The keys to our accurate leak detection are:

  • Expertly trained technicians
  • Specialized equipment
  • Respect for you and your property
  • Non-invasive detection technology

Contact us today to speak with one of our experts and get that leak stopped before it causes more damage.
