Description

Owner Operator, Owner of company does every job. Leak Detection is a specialized sector of the plumbing industry, and not all companies have the equipment and experience needed to handle detection and repair. We use technologically advanced detection equipment that allows us to locate and repair leaks efficiently. With our state-of-the-art equipment, we’re able to find the problem. We will come out and find your water line leak. We utilize many methods to find the leak. We have highly sensitive ground microphones that can hear the water movement through the pipes and water leaking out of the pipe underground. To verify water leaks that we have found we can use helium gas, as a tracer gas, if necessary. Helium gas is lighter than air and is tasteless, odorless, and non-flammable. It is inert and consequently does not react with water or water system materials. It is commonly used in the medical, food, and sea-diving industries. We pressurize the water line with helium gas and have a detector that works above ground to detect gas leaking out of the water line, rising through the soil. There are times we will also listen with the acoustic equipment for the gas escaping out of the water line where the leak is present. Not only do we use helium gas, we also utilize other types of compressed gases to get the job done. We come to every job prepared to do what it takes to find the leak.

Simon came on time. As soon as he walked up to my front yard. He pointed out a wet spot on my lawn right by the drive way. He used his machine to listen to the ground and determined the leaking spot and marked on the ground. The whole process is less than an hour.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Our water bill was more than thousands for 2 months. Called Simon to detect the leaking spot. He told me the price difference on the phone for indoor leaking and outdoor leaking detection. If the leaking is indoor, it would be $750. Luckily, the leaking spot is 2 feet away from the meter (outdoor leaking fee is $550). Had a contractor dig out and found the exact leaking spot- the blue pipe before union belongs to Seattle Public Utilities. I’m very happy about Simon’s excellent service. Will recommend him to friends who need the service

We called Simon. We set up an appointment. He suggested we check the main valve to the house for the leak, before his visit. We did, the problem was the main shut off, and a leak under the sink inside. Thanks to Simon we were able to cancel the appointment without meeting this honest man, and we fixed the easy leaks ourselves with no digging.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We turned off the water at the street, and also at the house. We knew we had a leak somewhere between the street and the house, because the meter continued to slowly advance.

Because Simon uses a boring tool and because they were so careful with the excess dirt while there was a hole in the ground, the disruption of the landscape was minimal. I am very impressed with the professionalism of the entire operation and highly recommend this outfit

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
My water line leaked between the city meter and the house. Due to landscaping issues and the age of the original line, we agreed to install a new line with different routing.

The leak was unfortunately under the driveway. Simon and Kevin were very friendly, courteous and professional. They did exactly what was contracted for, in a timely manner, and things were back to normal. I'd recommend Clearwater to anyone.

After reading the positive reviews, I had high hopes that Clear Water would be a great choice for repairing a leaking water line. I called them on 2 occasions and left them voicemails which they never returned. Additionally, I contacted them through Angie's List and again received no reply. Apparently, they are too busy to even respond with a simple "we are not able to take on work at this time". ...
