Leak Detection & Repair Services in Montgomery County, MD

Leaks are inconvenient and, if not properly taken care of, can cause serious damage to your home. Sometimes they can be obvious, like a dripping faucet, but sometimes leaks are hidden behind walls or in your ceiling. Usually you won’t realize you have a leak problem until you find a large water stain on your sheetrock, a wet spot on the rug, or receive a water bill that is two, three, or even 10 times higher than usual.

When leaks go unnoticed, they have the potential to cause serious damage—but, it can be avoided!

When you notice a leak, avoid costly water bills and expensive damage repairs by calling a plumber ASAP. At James A. Wheat & Sons, our expert plumbers have helped your friends and neighbors throughout the DC metro area with all their leak repair and detection needs since 1978.

Schedule your leak repair and detection in MD or DC today by calling James A. Wheat & Sons at 240-399-5051 or contact us online!

Types of Leaks to Detect & Repair

At James A. Wheat & Sons, we don’t just stop at water leak repair.  We can detect and repair water leaks, pool leaks, and gas leaks to help you make sure your home or office is sealed up tightly.

Water Leaks

Water leaks, even small ones, can have devastating effects on your Montgomery County home or office. Our plumbing company uses a highly accurate, non-invasive technique to pinpoint the source of your leaks and repair them immediately to help prevent future leaks from occurring. Our water leak repair experts perform services on all types of plumbing systems, including:

Our experts can repair leaks in the toughest places, too—like under concrete slabs or near gas lines. For expected sewer line leaks, we inspect and detect leaks with an unobtrusive camera so your home and yard can stay intact.

Don’t see the repair you were looking for on the list above? Contact us now and we can schedule an appointment for water leak detection & repair at your DC or MD home!

Pool Leaks

Pool leaks can be incredibly costly. A hole in your pool as tiny as a pencil tip can cause water losses of hundreds of gallons per day. If you notice significant decreases in your pool’s water level or wet, marshy spots in your backyard, call James A. Wheat & Sons today. Our leak repair professionals use the latest sonic leak detection technology to find your leaks and repair them as soon as possible so you can get back to enjoying your summer!

Gas Leaks

A gas leak in your home or office is extremely hazardous and can put your family or co-workers in danger. If you smell gas, extinguish any flames and quickly evacuate the building (and if you hear a hissing noise, get out as fast as you can!). When everyone has safely exited, first call 911 and report your emergency. Afterward, you can call James A. Wheat & Sons, and our leak repair technicians will find your gas leak and repair it as quickly as possible so your home or office is a safe environment again.

Please note: never attempt to fix a gas leak yourself—natural gas is highly toxic and explosive and leak detection and repair should be handled by professionals.
