Cost of leak detection in Tampa Bay
Major factors that affect price
Detection method-A plumber can use various methods to find a leak, including infrared cameras, excavation, hydrostatic water testing, etc. Depending on where you leak is, a plumber may have to employ a more expensive detection method, which will increase the overall cost of this service. The most expensive method is excavation, which involves cutting into walls or digging to find the source of a leak.
Location of the leak- If a leak is somewhere hard to reach (under your home's foundation, in the ceiling, etc.), a plumber may have to use expensive tools to reach it, which could increase the cost of your service.
Cosmetic repairs- Like we mentioned above, if a leak is somewhere that is hard to access, a plumber may have to cut into or demolish part of a wall, ceiling or floor. These kind of cosmetic repairs will increase the overall cost.
The good news is, when you choose Red Cap to detect a leak, we offer a flat rate price of $450, regardless of the detection method or location of the leak.

Do I Have a Leak?
Signs you may have a leak
- You've noticed water pooling in your front yard- You may have a leak in your yard if you notice standing water (or greener grass) in one or certain areas of your lawn and not others.
- Your water bills have increased significantly- If your water consumption has not changed dramatically but you notice a spike in your water bill, you could have a leak.
- You see moisture or mold on your ceiling- If you notice moisture, mold or water stains, that's usually a good indication that there is a leak behind a wall or the ceiling.
- Your home's water pressure has decreased- Do you notice decreased water pressure when you take a shower or turn on the sink? This could be a sign that there is a leak somewhere in your water line.
If you're experiencing any of the above, it's probably time to call a professional to come check it out. Leaks can cause serious damage if they aren't taken care of.
