Ben Franklin Southeast provides professional leak location services. These services are extremely precise and if required, a customer is charged a premium rate due to the equipment cost and time involved. These detection services are guaranteed to find leaks within 6 to 8 feet of the leak. Leaks can be found under counters, slabs or within a wall.
