Leak Detection

The San Antonio Leak Detection Specialists

Most homeowners are accustomed to dealing with dripping taps or small pipe leaks. However, water leaks can be much more serious and much more difficult to find than the simple dripping faucet. Plumbing leaks that occur in the slab or other areas that aren’t as noticeable can cause significant damage to your home.

If you think that your home might have a leak, call the leak detection specialists at Parker & Sons Plumbing. Our expert technicians will locate and repair even the most difficult to find water leaks – all with prompt, quality service.

Emergency Plumbing Services

Everyone hopes it doesn’t happen, but most homeowners inevitably have a plumbing emergency at some point. Luckily, Parker & Sons Plumbing is here to help with 24/7 emergency plumbing services. We’re here to help no matter when you need a plumber because we understand that plumbing emergencies don’t wait for business hours.

Rely on the Experts to Find Hidden Leaks

Plumbing systems are designed to be as invisible as possible to homeowners, so it’s no wonder that water leak detection is so difficult for homeowners. A maze of pipes in your wall and floors brings hot and cold water to every sink, shower and toilet in your home, and a leak could be hidden in any of them. Here are some common areas where hidden water leaks occur:

  • The plumbing concealed behind your walls and under your floors
  • The service line from your pump/meter to your home, which usually runs under your yard
  • In the slab, where the hot and cold water lines enter the home
  • Crawl spaces and basements (which are prone to flooding from plumbing leaks)

Because it’s so difficult to locate water leaks, homeowners should rely on professionals with the proper technology and experience for leak detection. If you suspect a leak, contact a professional immediately.

How do I know If I Have a Water Leak?

Although homeowners will be hard-pressed to locate the exact source of a water leak on their own, it’s important to know the signs of a water leak. By recognizing the signs of a plumbing leak, you can prevent further damage and even lower the cost of repairs. Keep an eye out for these signs of a water leak:

  • Wet spots on your floor and walls (the floor might feel spongy)
  • The sound of running water even when no water is being used
  • A higher water bill despite no change in your water usage
  • Mildew or mold
  • Cracks forming in the flooring or walls
  • Your water meter changes (or the well pump runs) even when you don’t use water

If you notice one or multiple water leak symptoms, it’s time to take the proper steps for fixing your potential water leak.

Static Testing

If you suspect a leak in your plumbing, your plumber will perform a static test to confirm whether your home has a leak and determine its extent. This is done by filling your plumbing system with water and measuring whether the water leaves the pipes. If the test confirms a leak, the plumber will take steps to locate and repair it. The video below explains the static testing process in further detail.

Roberta C.

Very Knowledgeable

I recently had several plumbing leaks repaired and couldn’t be happier with the prompt service I received from Parker and Sons. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, reasonably priced, and do quality work. I would definitely recommend them to my family and everyone. I would trust them to repair any leak in the house.

Stacey C.

Amazing Service!!!

Amazing service!!! Called and came the same day within 2 hrs. Our toilet had to be re-fitted and snaked. They did a beautiful job on the re-fitting and got the large piece of plastic out of the toilet. Will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Great service, great people, hard to find these days!!!

Shakira C.

Excellent Service!

Excellent Service! We had some work done on our kitchen and Parker and Sons were able to come out to our house and help us with our remodel. Great guys and great service. I would recommend them to anyone needing a plumber service.

Brad B.

Great to Work With

Jim and his guys are great to work with. Had Parker & Sons come out to take a look at an AC unit at one of my rental properties. Unit is in the attic. Had to replace a coil on it and did a great job. Will definitely use again.

Jeff C.

Amazing Staff!

I have referred Parker and Sons to all of my customers and I would not think of referring anybody else. They have been great and very punctual. All of the plumbers and office staff have been amazing!

Miguel B.

Reasonable Prices

I was in good hands today with journeyman plumber Mark Rizley. He remained until all was better than before. He replaced a PRV and improved a mediocre repair recently done by another well known local company. The price remained reasonable despite the extra effort needed for the job. Well done Mark! Parker and Sons will be my first call in the future.

Todd D.

Fantastic Company!

This is a fantastic company with outstanding professionalism, quality of work, and customer service. While their prices are extremely competitive, their work doesn’t feel cheap like some of the companies you can hire of off Craigslist or on a FB yard sale page. This is a reputable company with proven work and licensed, skilled technicians.

Ben A.

Fair Prices & Excellent Work

Have used Parker & Sons 3 different times, once for a huge complex plumbing repair and twice for smaller jobs. Fair prices and excellent work/fast response time every time.
