Signs of a Plumbing Leak
How do you know if your home has a leak?
Sometimes recognizing a leak in your home can be difficult. Many leaks occur out of sight behind walls or in the slab of your home. Others are simply behind cabinet doors that rarely get opened. Regardless of where the leak is, there are several signs indicating you may have a leak that home owners should be vigilant in watching for.

Process of Finding a Plumbing Leak
How Our Boerne Plumbers Perform Leak Detection
Leak Detection should be performed by plumbers experienced in the plumbing problems of the local area. The Olde Town plumbers have been performing leak detection and repairs in the Boerne area for many years. When you’re ready to have top quality service, give us a call. Our plumbers will get started on your repair right away.
1. Find the Source
First, we use our extensive knowledge of plumbing to determine the cause and source of the leak. We’ll use the appropriate equipment for the job—whether the leak is a water line or a drain line. We’ll also begin by investigating the leak in ways that have the least disturbance to your home and your routine.
2. Locate the Break
Next, we’ll open the wall to determine the extent of the leak and its exact location. We’ll need to determine if the leak is an isolated pinhole or if it is a larger break in the pipe.
3. Plan the Repair
Finally, we determine the best plan of action for repairing the leak and discuss it with you. We may be able to replace a small section of the pipe, or the entire line may need to be replaced. We look at all the options and offer you the best solution for your leak repair.
Ways to Perform Plumbing Leak Repair
Possible Leak Repair Options
While there are several options for repairing your plumbing, we have found that most Boerne homes benefit from these three leak repair options.
- Pipe repair – removing a section of the pipe and use fittings to replace just a small section. This is the first choice of repair since it is the least disruptive and most economical.
- Pipe replacement – bypassing or removing the current pipe and replacing it with an entirely new line. This method is often used with slab leaks or drain lines that have failed.
- Whole-House Re-pipe – replacing the water lines in the whole house. A whole-house re-pipe is useful when a home has repeated leaks that indicate a failure of the original plumbing lines.
