Electronic Leak Detection

Protecting your home from water leaks protects you from damage to your ceiling, walls, floors, and the foundation. 
CALL FOR AN ELECTRONIC LEAK DETECTION
An electronic leak detection machine finds leaks in water systems, drains, toilets, and othepipes transporting liquids. The principle of sound is what is used to detect leaks in pipes when using an electronic leak detector. If a sound registers on the machine, it is transmitted to the system at a higher frequency. The amplified leak is then detected and can be attended to immediately following the detection. Our plumbing experts can then attend to any leaks reported through the machine and get you back to normal! 

WE WILL LOCATE & REPAIR

Our professional team can locate and repair leaks well before they become an expensive mess over an extended period using electronic leak detection. 

The objective is to identify subsurface leaks with electronic equipment. A leak sound can vary, depending on the type, diameter, and pressure of the leaking pipe. The size of the leak and type of bedding also effects sound as it resonates from the leak source to the sounding point. Lowery specializes in hearing your leak and fixing it.
