Since the leak occurs behind your walls or above the ceiling, you may not even realize your home is suffering from this problem. Months or even years can pass before the leak becomes apparent—and by this time, larger problems may have already occurred, such as burst pipes.

    Signs You Have a
    Hidden Water Leak

    Although leaks can be subtle, there are signs you can watch out for:

    Sudden spike in your water bill—To quickly tell if a leak is the cause of your high water bill, turn off your main water shutoff valve; this cuts off the water supply throughout your home. Then, check your water meter: is it still running? If so, there is likely a pipe leaking in your home.

    Sounds of water running in your walls—Do you continue to hear water running through your walls, even though none of your faucets are turned on? This could point to a hidden leak.

    Musty odors—If you are having indoor air quality issues and have ruled out your HVAC system, the problem may be coming from your plumbing. Leaking water pipes can create musty or damp odors throughout your home and affect your indoor comfort level.

    Damp floors or stained ceilings—Leaking pipes that run through your ceiling can create water stains, while damp spots on your flooring could signal a slab leak (which occurs beneath your home’s foundation).

    A hidden water leak, particularly if it has progressed enough, can quickly result in mold growth and further affect your health. This is why we encourage homeowners to be proactive in the maintenance of their plumbing system. Know the warning signs of trouble, especially concerning hidden leaks.
    If you are purchasing a new home (particularly an older property), make sure to carry out due diligence and schedule a comprehensive plumbing inspection. This will alert you to any leaks and help you avoid other potential plumbing problems.

    If allowed to develop over months or years, pipe leaks can lead to major water or structural damage. Don’t wait for an emergency to happen—contact our Waldorf leak detection experts as soon as you suspect a leak in your home.

    Our Approach to Leak Detection

    ACW Service Inc. uses noninvasive leak detection methods to safely and accurately track down hidden leaks.

    Acoustic leak detectors—This approach allows us to detect leaks by sound. Where the sound is strongest is where the leak is located.

    Infrared cameras—This method is often used in conjunction with acoustic leak detection to ensure accuracy. With infrared cameras we are able to trace water movement and identify water temperatures.

    Tracer gas—Some pipes are more difficult to trace due to their depth. If this is the case, we may use tracer gas (nitrogen and hydrogen) to help us locate the leak.


    What Our Clients Are Saying

    I was experiencing a plumbing emergency and discovered ACW Service, Inc. from searching online. The timing was perfect because my call was answered immediately and Brian was two minutes from my house; he was able to stop by and provide an estimate within minutes of receiving the call. The work was completed in an extremely timely manner, which prevented further damage from occurring. If you’re looking for a plumbing company with great customer service and quality work, you won’t be disappointed with Brian or Zach!

    Brian was a wonderful representative of the company. Upon reaching out to ACW, he made recommendations on what type of faucet we should get to replace our old one and where we could get it. He set us up for an appointment for Monday. While our particular sink situation didn't need immediate attention at first, it turned into a larger issue and necessitated a more immediate response. Brian was able to squeeze us in earlier than we had scheduled, which we greatly appreciated. He was prompt, professional, and installed our new faucet within the hour. We're even considering using them for a bathroom remodel in the future. Highly recommend working with this company if you're unsure on who to choose.
    Brian was amazing and came out late at night to help us diagnose our clogged septic line and returned first thing in the morning to snake the line for us and repaired some shotty plumbing work from a previous owner. Great work and very professional and punctual! Thanks Brian!

    Amazing company! I called to have the toilet in my master bathroom replaced. ACW came out the next day and completed the job. Excellent customer service and the price was very competitive. We will definitely use them again for our plumbing needs.

    Brian was responsive and very helpful in Guiding me on what kind of faucet to purchase. He arrived in time and did excellent work for a reasonable cost. I would definitely use him again for future plumbing needs.
    Shannon Kelley
    Very fast response to my inquiry. They were very thorough and professional with the assessment and repaired the problem same day. Would use them again and highly recommend their service.
    Vince Contreras
    ACW was fantastic to work with. They came out and gave me a quick and easy to comprehend assessment of what they believed was wrong and what the fix would be. Once I accepted the quote, the part was ordered (new water pressure valve) and installed with about 3 to 4 business days. They were extra careful to not cause major repair work to the drywall in my theater room which was where the valve was. I couldn't have been happier with the the change in water pressure in our home. Im extremely grateful for companies like ACW and would definitely recommend them for your home.
