You may notice a small spraying sound or detect water appearing on your floors. Those are the most obvious signs of a burst pipe. Another sign of a burst pipe is a rapidly spinning red triangle on your water meter.

Smart water meters do not merely measure the amount of water you use but detect large increases in water use, such as a significant leak would cause, and alert your water supplier. This allows a savings of water that would otherwise be wasted.

There are two ways that Leesburg plumbers detect underground leaks. The first is to listen for the leak and subsequently bore a hole in the floor near the sound of the leak. This method may take a few tries to get to the leak’s position. The other method is to use audible sounding equipment to pinpoint the location of the leak.
