      I have a hot water leak and can’t find it. It’s under the concrete floor and a large area of the floor get hot. How do I pinpoint the leak? Are there special tools or instruments that I can rent or buy to find this leak?

      This is a JOKE posting correct?

      EASIEST find there is. Want to be a real expert in finding under slab Hot water leaks?

      Tell you what THE REALLY professional EXPERTS DO.

      Get to a decent plumbing supply store BUY A BIG MOP then MOP the floor the SPOT that dries the fastest is the hottest, DO THIS several times to be certain.

      Mark this spot HERE lies your DAMN LEAK. You just saved a service call that I charge $1,200 for location of hydronic leak.

      Seriously if you have any other Leak detection questions contact MicroEngineering or My Tanya tell em Sylvan Sent you OR just E mail me. Sylvan

      The leak is where the floor is hottest, but since your homeowner’s insurance will pay everything except the cost of actually repairing the pipe, call a leak locator company and they will pinpoint it for the plumber. Then call your insurance agent and finally the plumber. Have the plumber give you two bills. One for accessing the leak and replacing the concrete in the hole and the second one for repairing the pipe.
