We will find it! Water or gas, above ground or in-ground, under concrete or in a wall. Our state of the art leak detection equipment, paired with our dutiful fully-trained technicians, will locate and pinpoint your leak in the toughest applications. Our Leak Detection Department is dedicated solely to this particular service and the deployment of solutions. Many times other leak detection companies in Los Angeles have thrown their hands up in surrender, only to have customers filled with anxiety and feeling lost. Before that happens, call the Right Size team!

When others fail or can’t figure it out, we can! That’s a Right Size Guarantee. All water or gas leak detections require not only a comprehensive checklist of the procedures that are a protocol for successful location, but they also require a solid understanding of how to generate the desired effect to reproduce the same leak, without that gas or air being live. It takes training to evaluate the resonance and various sounds, and this experience can only be developed through repetitive instruction taught in a training facility. That takes learning through real life situations and applying your trade craft under competent leadership, not just providing an employee with the equipment and letting them learn on the job, especially at a client’s expense.

Right Size Leak Detection Team will never do that to our customers and we will never do that to you. Night or day, rain or shine – our Leak Detection Team knows how destructive water can be in such a short period of time and what kind of financial losses can result. We also know how important gas flow is for just our basic living conditions. That being said, our team does not have to tell you, Right Size Plumbing Experts are the right choice for leak detection in Los Angeles, CA, and all your plumbing and drain needs.

How do leaks develop?

Plumbing leaks can occur for many reasons, ranging from old and worn drainage and water supply pipes to damaged fixtures and fittings.

On average, most homes lose approximately 2,000 to 20,000 gallons of water every year as a result of leaks. Because most leaks develop in areas of your home’s plumbing system that are out of sight, small leaks can quickly grow into major leaks without ever being noticed.

The most common water leaks are water supply line leaks and leaks from faucets, bathtubs, and showers.

Water supply line leaks occur when the supply pipes that connect your home to the water supply line become sheared, worn or damaged. This can occur gradually over time, or suddenly due to an impact or geological activity such as an earthquake.

When leaks develop below the concrete slab on which your home is built, they’re referred to as “slab leaks.” Because these leaks occur deep beneath the ground, they’re often difficult to notice without paying special attention to the signs of a slab leak.

In the section below, you can find the most common signs of a leak to your home’s water supply line.

Leaks in faucets and shower heads are more obvious. If your sink faucets, shower head or bath faucet continue to drip water even when in an off position, they could be damaged and in need of repair to prevent a serious leak from developing.

Although faucet leaks don’t look severe, the small amount of water that drips out of a tap over time can quickly add up to a significant amount. On average, a faucet that drips 20-30 times a minute will use approximately 1,000 gallons of water over the course of a year.

In addition to water leaks, many homes and buildings develop gas leaks over time. As gas is a flammable material and a major fire risk, it’s important to take action immediately if you notice a gas leak developing in your home.

Common signs of a leak:

Water leaks can range from obvious (such as a leaking faucet or showerhead) to impossible to notice without paying direct attention. Below, we’ve listed some of the most common signs of a leak to help you identify potential leaks in your home:

● The sound of running water can be a common sign of a slab leak. If you can hear the sound of water running even when your faucets, shower, washing machine and all other appliances are switched off, there could be a leak in your water supply pipe.

● Mold and mildew around your home, particularly in carpets and wooden flooring, is a common sign of a slab leak. In this case, the leaking water can soak into the materials in your home and cause lasting damage that’s expensive to repair.

● “Hot spots” in your flooring can indicate a leak in your hot water line. If you notice an area that’s particularly warm or notice that your hot water supply doesn’t last for as long as it should, your home could have a hot water line leak.

● Damp areas in carpets and wooden flooring are another obvious sign of a slab leak that can cause serious damage to your home. Like mold and mildew, this sign of a leak is fairly easy to identify.

If you have noticed any of the signs above, one way to verify whether or not your home has a slab leak is to perform a meter test.

For this test, switch off all appliance that requires a water supply and ensures all of your faucets are completely closed. Check your water meter and see if it continues to increase, even when no water is being consumed.

If the meter continues to move even when you aren’t using any water, a leak could be the root cause. One way to check this is to take two photos of your water meter 10-15 minutes apart in order to verify that it continues to tick upwards even when no water is being consumed.

Identifying a gas leak is slightly easier. Because most utility companies add mercaptan to home gas supplies, you can usually identify a gas leak by the sulfur/rotten egg smell that develops as gas spreads.

Other signs of a gas leak include a hissing or whistling sound in the area around the gas supply line or the death of plans in the area around the gas supply.

Slab Leak Detection

Have you noticed the signs of a slab leak? If your home has “hot spots,” damp carpeting, mold and mildew growth or any of the other common signs of a slab leak, our team in can perform a full review and identify the exact location of the leak.

We use a variety of tools to detect slam leaks, ranging from electromagnetic pipe location tools to electronic amplification equipment. Combined with our team’s hands-on experience, our leak detection toolkit lets us detect and locate even the smallest of leaks without issue.

Leak Repair

After we’ve detected and located the source of the leak, our experienced team can complete a full repair. We offer repair services for leaks of all types, from simple faucet leaks caused due to worn out parts and equipment to slab leaks located deep beneath your home.

Our motto for all leak repairs is “leak detection without destruction.” When it’s time to repair the leak, we always take the least invasive and destructive approach to ensure you get the benefits of a complete leak repair without any damage to your property.

In many cases, we can carry out complex slab leak repairs with the removal of a single flooring tile, avoiding the aesthetic damage that can result from less precise repairs. To repair most slab leaks, we use the following processes:

● Slab leak spot repair, in which our technician will open the slab at the exact location of the leak and repair the leaking pipe.

● Repiping or rerouting, in which our technician will replace the line in which the leak is a problem and reroute the pipe to prevent the leak from reoccurring.

● Epoxy pipe coating, in which our technician will apply an in-place coating to the pipe to stop the leak and seal the crack, preventing the leak from continuing without destruction to your home.

Can you safely ignore water and gas leaks?

No. Both water and gas leaks are serious problems that should be located and repaired as soon as possible.

While minor faucet and showerhead leaks are unlikely to cause damage to your home, they can waste water and increase your utility bill. Slab leaks, on the other hand, can quickly cause major damage to your home’s flooring, walls, and other materials.

Because gas leaks are a major fire risk, it’s extremely important that you take action immediately if you notice a sulfur smell or experience any of the other signs of a gas leak.
