Leak Detection

A leak can quickly become an extremely expensive, elusive and stressful problem to deal with. Whether your leak is above or below ground, it’s imperative to call Hill Plumbing and Air for prompt and professional leak detection!


At Hill Plumbing and Air, we specialize in locating difficult to find water leaks that can either be beneath the slab or in the wall. We use noninvasive, state of the art leak detection technology that can detect even the most complicated leaks, while also repairing the pipes to restore the integrity of your plumbing system.


A slab leak happens when the pipes in the water lines under your home burst, break, rust or rupture. It’s not actually a leak in the slab, rather, it’s a leak in the pipes under the concrete slab of your home. There are several telltale signs to know if you have a slab leak. Some of which are:

  • You can hear water running, even though all faucets are turned off.
  • You feel a warm spot on the floor (that could mean you’ve got leak in the hot water line).
  • Your water meter is spinning, but no water is running inside or outside your property
  • You see mold, mildew or moisture in your flooring.
  • Your water bills significantly increase, and you can’t explain why the volume of usage has increased.

The goal is to limit any structural damage while respecting your home or business. If the leak is small and we can access it with little disruption, we’ll go through the floor or wall to fix it. However, if the problem is much larger that might require excavation or tearing up your foundation and flooring, we might instead recommend rerouting the plumbing through the walls or up into the attic. This process of re-piping is less intrusive and causes much less disruption in your home.
