Plumbing, Leak Detection and Repair in Round Rock, Georgetown and Austin areas
GOT A LEAK?
Step 1: Make an appointment for us to bring our high-tech equipment out to pinpoint the source of the leak by filling in the Leak Location Request Form. Leak location costs $400 for the first 90 minutes and $150 per hour after that. Most leaks are found within the first 90 minutes.
Step 2: Our plumber will show you the exact location of the water or gas leak, discuss your options for repair or reroute of the pipes, and write you an estimate to fix the leak.
Step 3: If you accept the price on the estimate, sometimes the leak can be fixed that day, other times we will set up an appointment with you to come back in a day or two to fix it.

We find it AND fix it! When you've got a leak, you want it FOUND and FIXED, fast! Most leak detection companies only find the leak and then leave you hanging, forcing you to do more research and find a plumber who has time and expertise to come fix it. The Plumbinator is your one-stop-shop to find AND fix the leak, without tearing up your house or yard, saving you time and money! We have specialized equipment to pinpoint the source of the leak, so we can perform minimally invasive "keyhole surgery" on your plumbing. We offer electro-acoustic, as well as helium sniffing leak location services.
How does the equipment work? The water flowing out of a leak in a pipe causes the pipe to vibrate. These vibrations are transmitted throughout the line and can be picked up, even at distant contact points such as fittings. The vibrations are also transmitted up through the ground to the surface, although the sound is very muted. Our sophisticated listening equipment makes the vibrations of the leak audible to the human ear through our specialized headphones, and records and visually displays the volume and frequency spectrum. We also offer helium yard leak location services. We inject helium, an inert gas, into the line and use our high-tech helium "sniffer" to sniff out the exact location of your yard leak!
