Our Story

Meet The Waterboy

We are a full-service Los Angeles water leak detection company with the dedication and experience to locate even the most stubborn leak! From the moment we arrive at your home, our team works tirelessly to determine the source of your leak. We use varied methods of leak detection including electromagnetic pipe locators, infrared thermal imaging, electronic and ultrasonic sound tracing, and nitrogen pressure tests. Once the leak has been identified, we’ll mark the exact location of the leak. Finally, we will refer you to our network of professional affiliates so you can have the leak repaired by a licensed restoration or plumbing service provider.

How do I know if I have a leak?

Spotted a spike in your water bill? Noticed strange smells or creaking and groaning pipes? These things mean that you could have a plumbing leak! Before you panic, there is a simple test that you can do to help you determine if it’s time to call in the professionals.

  1. Turn off all water appliances on your property. Don’t forget lawn & garden irrigation, toilets, washer dryers, dishwashers, faucets, icemakers, and backwash filters. You should also confirm that your pool isn’t set to auto-fill.
  2. Locate your water meter and remove the cover (sometimes you may need to pry a lid open).
  3. Is your meter moving or rotating? If so, then you probably have a leak.

Why You Need Non-invasive Tools for Your Los Angeles Plumbing Leak Detection

Thinking about calling a local plumber to find your leak? Don’t reach for the phone just yet! While it may seem practical to bundle the repairs and leak detection, it’s unlikely that you’ll get the same value for your investment that you could expect from a leak detection specialist. Without the correct tools, your plumber may need to use trial and error methods of leak detection. This can result in serious property damage.

At The Waterboy, our business is built exclusively on leak detection, so we’re able to invest in state-of-the-art technology. The average plumber may not have access to these tools. This is because they are quite expensive and require significant training and hands-on experience. Using tools such as robotic cameras and noise correlators, we’ll identify your leak directly at the source and mark the location for your restoration professional. If your leak is underground, we will locate your water line and indicate the exact placement of each leak. This means that your repair team can skip searching for the leak and get right to work on getting your property back to its previous condition.

Save Time & Money with Local Leak Detection Experts

When you close your eyes and think of a leak, you probably imagine a slowly dripping kitchen sink or a broken pipe. The truth is, not all leaks cause slow water loss. In fact, some of the more serious leaks (like slab leaks or irrigation leaks) may waste massive amounts of water due to high-pressure water squirting from very small openings or cracks. In the most extreme situations, you could be losing thousands of gallons of water per day.

At The Waterboy, we know that water damage of any kind is stressful for homeowners. That’s why we work hard to guide you through the process: from the initial leak detection to the final repairs. We’ve earned a reputation for five-star service because of our commitment to our clients and our previous success in identifying Los Angeles plumbing leaks.

Untreated water leaks can lead to a build-up of mildew and mold, which has been linked to a myriad of health concerns. Our proven and non-invasive leak detection methods can give you peace of mind. We’ll pinpoint the source of the problem with extreme accuracy – swiftly taking the stress out of any leak detection mess!

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers!

A leak detection company is a highly specialized service provider. They provide expert leak detection services for indoor, outdoor and underground leaks. A leak detection company can quickly pinpoint the source of a leak and make recommendations for repairs. They are not responsible for repairing leaks, but often can refer you to an experienced plumbing professional who can do the job.

Great question! The fact is, leak detection and leak repair are very different specialties. They require a different set of tools and different competencies. Our staff is highly trained and continuously educated on the best methods of leak detection. We narrow our focus to leak detection in order to provide the best possible service. When you work with The Waterboy, you can rest easy knowing that we aren’t trying to upsell you for unnecessary restoration or construction services. Our only goal is to find your leak as quickly and non-invasively as possible.

Many plumbers and restoration companies claim to provide leak detection services. You should remember that leak detection requires specialized training that other companies may not have. When you forgo leak detection services, you run the risk of your restoration professionals misidentifying the source of your leak. Ultimately, this mistake could be incredibly costly. At The Waterboy, we’ll correctly identify your leak the first time. Furthermore, we offer our guidance and recommendations for repairs. You can expect full transparency and exceptional customer service throughout the process.

Yes! We’re glad you asked. Outdoor and indoor leaks require different methods for determining the source of the leak, but both are equally important and should be addressed as quickly as possible. Outdoor leaks tend to be underground and require a professional leak detector to locate the problem without causing unnecessary damage to your lawn. Indoor leaks may begin within walls and under concrete floors, making them difficult for a plumber to repair without a prior leak detection service.
