Leak Detection is the Most Important Step

If left undetected and unrepaired, a leak can eventually lead to thousands of dollars in water and structural damage to your home.

If any of the warning signs exist at your facility or home, you may need to hire a professional leak detection company to pinpoint its exact location and a plumbing contractor to perform the repairs.

We can find and repair the leak, and help you document everything appropriately for your insurance company.

At some point in every homeowner’s life, plumbing leaks will occur.

  • Bathroom Leaks
  • Bathtub Leaking

Are your water bills higher than usual? This can be a definite warning sign of leak in your water line system. Water line leaks can pose a significant threat to the foundation of your residential or commercial property, and cost a significant amount of extra money on your monthly water bill.

There are several reasons why your home or business water pipe may become damaged and ultimately leak, including old pipes, shifting soil under the surface, material that water pipes are made, or sloppy installation.

Breaks in the water supply line require the services of a trained professional. If you suspect your water line is leaking, contact Atlanta Water Department to determine if a contractor or the water department will repair the line. If the water utility considers the leak to be the responsibility of the homeowner, a professional plumber should perform all repair work.

Sewer line problems don’t occur that often. However, when they do happen, they frequently involve leaking in one or more sections of the line. Unfortunately, most leaks in a sewer line go undetected until there are visible indications of foundation damage.

There are several signs that point to a sewer leak. Some of the most common to watch for are: soggy spots or puddles seeping up onto your lawn or yard, slab swells enough to lift the building, raised section in the floor, sounds of running water around the foundation of your house, and unpleasant odors or unusual sounds when you flush the toilet.

If you suspect you’ve uncovered signs of a sewer line leak, call Zippy Plumber to arrange a sewer line inspection as soon as possible.

Have you noticed your water bill is unusually high but you haven’t changed your water usage at all? Are you wondering "Why is my water so slow?" Is your lawn turning into marshlands? If so, you might have an underground water leak. If you are concerned about a possible underground leak, call Zippy Plumber today. Whether it’s a residential property or commercial, we are able to find water leak outside underground with a high level of accuracy.

By hiring a dependable, highly trained plumber from our company, you will ensure that the job is done quickly and competently. Once the plumbers have completed the underground leak detection, they have a number of options available to fix any leaks they might find. This includes performing a trenchless repair or replacement.

Signs that You Need Leak Detection Services

Hidden leaks are one of the most common types of water leaks, but they are frequently missed, causing far more damage to your property.

According to Fulton County Website the fastest way to identify leaks around your home is to do a water meter test: reading your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.

However, this test only verifies large leaks within the home, but not small leaks. Additionally, the meter test does not indicate the location of the leaks. Further investigation is needed to detect and find all significant leaks.


  • Running water sounds, when nothing is in use
  • Increase of water usage and water bill over a period of weeks or months
  • Low water pressure or low volume
  • Changes in your water reading when you aren't using any water
  • Soft or wet spots on your wall or in the yard
  • Water meter consumption changing, when not using water
  • You can smell foul odors coming from floors or walls near drains or sewers
  • Warm areas on your floor, particularly on concrete slab floors

What to Do When You Discover a Water Leak

In the event of a water leak in your home or business, don’t panic and don’t procrastinate handling it. Give us a call and rest easy knowing that all will be resolved with professionalism and a quality guarantee.


  • Locate your home's main shut off valve and shut off the water to the house. This will ensure that where-ever the leak is at, it will not continue to receive more water to leak out.
  • If you find that your water heater is leaking then you need to cut off the water supply to the tank
  • Use towels and mops to soak up any excess water. This will prevent further damage to your home.
  • Document the discovery of the leak.
  • Call a professional plumber.
  • The home owner must decide whether it is a good idea to contact the insurer at all. It is not recommended that an insured contacts the insurer unless the water damage caused by plumbing is significant.
  • If a water damage claim is filed, you should arrange with the insurance adjuster to inspect the damage.

Customer Reviews

What an awesome company!!! We have blue poly piping in the yard which is notorious for leaks. When the meter kept spinning we called zippy and they came out the same day. He recommended a great leak detection guy and fixed the leak the same day it was found!!

Accidentally punch a hole in a drain pipe installing a shelf in the wall. Called Zippy up last night and they were able to get some guys out the next day. They were able to fix the pipe quickly and professionally.
