Why do pipes start to leak?
Over the years, galvanized or copper pipes, start to thin or rust out. Plastic water lines like PEX, CPVC, and PVC can all spring leaks due to sun exposure or become brittle with age.
How do you find leaks underground or below a concrete slab?
Detection of underground leaks is performed by using high-powered noise amplification equipment which allows us to pinpoint exactly where the leak is in the system.
How do I know that I have pipe leaks?
Check out your water meter first. If your water meter is running despite every faucet and plumbing fixture of your home or office turned off, then you might have a leak in your plumbing system.
Signs of a water leak include toilets filling up by themselves, high water bills, hot spots on the concrete under your feet, water damage to floors, walls and ceilings, as well as the sound of running water.

What is galvanic corrosion? How can we prevent it from happening in my plumbing system?
When two dissimilar types of metal touch each other, typically a softer metal like copper and a harder metal such as galvanized steel, the softer metal corrodes away which causes leaks. This is known as galvanic corrosion.
You can prevent galvanic corrosion in your plumbing system by installing your water heater with dielectric unions. Dielectric unions isolate metals from touching each other.
