Pipe repair / replacement professionals know the tactics to identify exactly where a pipe system is leaking, and can advise you on the best course of action.

One way that leaks can be detected is acoustically. In other words, by literally listening to the pipes, and making an assessment from the particular sounds created. The sounds created are affected by many factors, including the pipe material, the water pressure in the pipe, and the qualities of soil, concrete or other material on top of the pipe. For example, steel or iron pipes will transmit sounds at a higher frequency than plastic pipes.

Pipe leaks behind walls can sometimes be identified by moisture on the wall. If there is give in the wall when you press on it, that indicates deteriorating drywall.
