Default Water leak detection under slab

Well, the good news is that many people are able to use the equipment you bought and find lots of leaks. The bad news is that is leak detection were that easy, leak detection companies would be out of business. Perfect practice, of course, makes perfect. Listen carefully, and Good Luck. We are a leak detection company in Indiana, and have worked with a number of plumbers who have bouth their own equipment only to continue calling. In fact, I just had a plumber give me some of his equipment after he could not get it to work for him, and his quote was, "Here, maybe you can get this s**t to work." Luckily, I can. Check us out

Default Lousy leak detection equipment

Yeah, well the stuff he bought was lousy, but it works if you're careful enough with it. I would almost rather use witching sticks. Just Kidding (No, but seriously...) Do many of the plumbers in here have a lot of trouble with leak detection? I post and advise and blog telling people that leak detection companies will get them usually within a few inches and should always be within a foot. Is this the exception rather than the rule? What experience do you have with leak deteciton companies? Do they often miss? Come back out if they do? Refund money if they are off? I am in fact one of them, and have been reading horror stories in here. Thanks,

Are you even a plumber, IMO leak detection companies are not classified in the plumber trades.

I am usually pretty accurate doing leak detections myself. I have used leak detection companies and to be honest, they have a much worse record than I do. They don't refund money. They will come back out but not for free. In my experience, it's a lousy racket. I'd say I've had some negative experiences with them.

Default Plumbing Professionals, right?

This is for plumbing professionals, right? I certainly think as does my insurance company, that water and plumbing leak detection is a plumbing profession. How are you, Ron? IMO or IMAO?
