Ontario, CA Commercial Leak Detection & Repair
Plumbing leaks are one of the most common problems for residential and commercial buildings alike. Even the newest copper piping can develop pinhole leaks, and plastic pipes can also come loose and start leaking water. Because most piping in a building is hidden from sight, it’s difficult to know when leaks are happening and to then find and repair them. For your commercial property, you want to turn to skilled professional plumbers with the right tools to handle leak detection and repairs.

Warning Signs of Hidden Leaks in Your Commercial Property
Let’s start with recognizing there’s a problem in the first place. Unless the leaks in your building are massive and immediately noticeable, you may not at first pick up on plumbing leak issues. You’ll have to watch for smaller warning signs:
- Rise in water bills: You keep a close watch on your company’s expenses, so when you notice a rise in water consumption, don’t shrug it off. This often means hidden leaks.
- Stains on ceilings: Commercial piping is usually hidden behind drywall ceiling tiles. When discolored stains appear on the tiles, or the tiles start to crumble apart, it often means a water leak that needs to be repaired—soon!
- Rise in humidity: When conditions inside parts of your building become unusually humid, it may be water leaks.
- Drop in water pressure: Larger leaks in the building may lead to a decline in water pressure at taps throughout it.
We also recommend having leak detection done every few years, even if you don’t notice specific warnings. Catching leaks earlier will help curb water bills and stop troubles when they’re small.
How Our Plumbers Handle Commercial Leak Detection
What does a commercial plumber do to find out where you have plumbing leaks? First, they use their training to look for outward signs of leaks to narrow down the location of the pipes that may be the trouble. Next, they put to use a number of advanced tools.
One of the most powerful is video camera inspection equipment, which allows a plumber to look at a pipe from the inside and pinpoint the exact location of a leak. Other devices include acoustic listening discs, ground microphones, and thermal scanners. The plumber will know exactly where to work so the leak can be reached and repaired with the least amount of disruption to building materials.
