External leaks such as ones in faucets, under sinks, and toilets are easy to see and repair, but there can also be leaks in your pipes hidden deep under slabs, flooring, and foundation. A pinhole leak in the wall can turn into a serious emergency if left unchecked.
At Absolute Plumbing and Drain, we have the tools, skills, and technology to find leaks anywhere in your Bay Area sewer lines, including the ones that are buried underground or inside walls. Moreover, we can come up with an accurate diagnosis, which is important for guaranteed success when it comes to the method of repair.

Signs of a Water Leak
Water leaks can be hard to detect and often go unnoticed until the damage is done.
However, there are some telltale signs of a water leak that you should be aware of in order to catch it early and avoid costly repairs:
- High water bills - If your bill spikes for no obvious reason, it could be indicative of a leak somewhere in the home.
- Reduced water pressure
- Mold and mildew growth - This not only looks unattractive but can also cause upper respiratory issues and irritate allergy and asthma sufferers.
- Water stains on ceilings - If you see dark spots or discoloration on your ceiling, there is likely a leak somewhere inside the wall causing it.
- Peeling wallpaper or blistering paint - This can indicate that there is a leak in the wall.
- Sagging ceilings - Sagging may suggest either a roof or pipe leak underneath and should not be ignored.

Leak detection in Concord, CA, and surrounding areas involve our team using smoke, electricity, or water to find small and large leaks within your sewer and drain system. Leak detection services require zero digging and disturbing the landscape. It’s fast, environmental-friendly and best of all, affordable.
Micro Camera Inspections for Residential & Commercial Leak Detection
Our technicians use the latest leak detection equipment and innovative gadgets such as a micro camera that’s attached to a flexible line to see the insides of your pipes in real-time. The contraption is inserted into any open cleanout (sink or bathtub drain) and navigates to any point in your sewer system.
For residential slab leaks, we can look into the foundations of your property to find problems and repair them.
Commercial slab leak inspections include:
- High rise leaks
- Window tray leaks
- Slab leaks under condos
- And more
We can also conduct sewer and drain leaks following persistent odor issues.

What Are the Benefits of Leak Detection?
Our expertise allows us to spot issues early on and prevent leaks before they happen.
Leak detection can help protect your home from:
- Water damage
- Mold formation
- And your family from health hazards
CIPP, or cured in place pipe lining can replace aging lines and ones that have corroded, restoring water quality along the way. At Absolute Plumbing and Drain, we recommend the cure-in-place method as the quickest and most effective way to rehabilitating broken pipes. A liner coated with special epoxy resin forms a new pipe material within the old one and seals the leak at the same time.
This trenchless method of pipe repair can address a multitude of common pipe problems, such as:
- Cracked seals
- Poor plumbing installation
- High water pressure
- And in the event of burst pipes due to freezing weather
If you have a property that’s 10 years old or more, then it’s best to have a professional technician conduct an inspection for leaks on your sewer line. For newer properties, sewer inspections guarantee peace of mind and continued usage without backups and clog occurrences.
