Leak Detection Services in Chapel Hill, NC by Bud Matthews Services

We depend upon our plumbing systems each and every day, throughout the entire day, for several different reasons. One of the most obvious and vital ways in which our plumbing systems benefit us is by delivering potable water throughout our homes in a reliable, convenient manner. When your plumbing system develops a leak, its reliability and convenience are immediately compromised.

One of the most significant challenges of resolving problems with leaks within one’s plumbing system is simply determining where the leak is located. Often, leaks will be hidden deep within the system, well out of view of the average homeowner.

Bud Matthews Services provides leak detection services near Chapel Hill, NC, and the surrounding areas.


When your faucet or toilet is leaking it can be quite hard to find. If you hear the sound of running water without a source, notice water damage or mold growth anywhere in your home, you may have a leak that requires professional repairs. We will find it quickly by utilizing our training and the right tools for the job.


Leak detection services may entail a few different approaches. In some cases, audio equipment may be used to pinpoint the source of the leak. If this isn’t possible or the leak is in an area that is not conducive to this sort of inspection, then video equipment may be utilized. By inserting a flexible rod, tipped with a camera, into a pipe, your plumber can evaluate the situation from within the system itself. We’ll determine the best method to pinpoint the source of your leak once we’ve assessed the situation.


By hiring a professional, you can be assured that the leak can be found quickly. Even minor leaks can do serious damage to your home if given a chance. Not to mention, you will be paying for every drop of water that is wasted. Damp conditions also create an environment in which mold and other biological pollutants can thrive. If you suspect that you have a leak somewhere in your plumbing system, dial our number immediately.
