Using a leak detector is the best and perhaps the only way to detect leaks within walls, ceilings, floors, and subfloors. Usually, pipes and fittings that are not readily accessible will be overlooked and not maintained within the building's water piping system. Non-insulated hot water pipes inside inaccessible locations, conduits will create small amounts of water molecules that attach to metal piping surfaces distributing both hot and cold water. Within time, these humid climates will give life to molds, and built rust on external pipes, and fittings with metal alloy material surfaces.
