Common Water Leak Questions


How do I know if I have a leak?

Most meters have a leak indicator. It's normally a triangle or star on the face of the meter. You should turn off toilets and Ice maker then see if the leak indicator is turning. If yes please call HydroScout.


What should I do if I hear water running?

Make sure none of your fixtures are running, if not call HydroScout.


Are my pipes in the concrete foundation?

Not usually, your pipes are in the soil under the foundation. The only place they contact the foundation is where they come up to feed a fixture. At those points they are normally protected with a sleeve.


What should my consumption be per month?

On average 1 person uses 3 thousand gallons per month.


Can a toilet run my bill up?

Yes the average toilet can run in excess of 100 gallons per hour if its sticks wide open.


How does HydroScout locate hidden leaks?

We use techniques and equipment that have been developed over the last 25 years. We actually listen through the foundation to close in on the signature sound of the leak.


How long does it take to find a leak?

Most leaks are found within 1 to 2 hours.


What will happen if I don't find and fix the leak?

In some cases the leak will grow to the point where it floods the home.


If I have one leak does it mean I will have more?

We have found that the life of most piping ranges from 15 to 30 years depending on the type of pipe. However one leak is no indication that there will be more.


Will HydroScout damage my home while finding the leak?

No. HydroScout locates the leak using sound waves. We do not use the hit and miss techniques that so many companies do.


Should I authorize workers to try and find my leak by drilling into the slab?

This type of testing is outdated. Our technology has been used for over 25 years.


Will my insurance cover leak detection?

In most cases yes, please contact your insurance agency for your policy details.


What if my house only leaks when it rains?

HydroScout is a state certified General Contractor and HAAG certified roof inspector. We specialize in water intrusion leak detection and solutions to correct them.


Can HydroScout make an inspection of a home I am buying?

Yes we do swimming pool, plumbing, roof and water intrusion inspections on a regular basis for realtors and potential buyers. We can give you a clean bill of health on your home.


How do I know if my pool has a leak?

Pools can lose up to 1/4 inch of water per day to evaporation. If your pool is losing more than 1/4 inch of water in a 24hr period, it most likely has a leak.
