Using a combination of the latest sonic equipment for the use of finding leaks in lines, i.e. fire suppression lines, commercial & residential water lines, pool plumbing & other piping .  Having a variety of transmitters, we can locate residential sewer "laterals". A variety of equipment used for locating of "private" cables, conduit, & other transmission devices.  We have recently acquired a unique instrument that is using a combination of hydrogen/nitrogen induced to locate given leaks in piping or vessels or detect the loss of hydrogen alone from piping or vessels. Our locating services began in the late 1990's.

I have used Adhair twice this ...

I have used Adhair twice this year; once this spring & once recently. Each time they found the leak, but each time they charged the same price. I thought I'd at least get a break on the cost of the second job. I hope I have no more leaks, I cannot afford them.

This is the second time someone has complained about our pricing. Our fees are commensurate with industry pricing. What's strange is that each time we completed our job as quoted. Sorry, we have our expenses & many happy customers; pricing will remain the same.

I have a design/build landscape & pool company in Edwardsville, IL & we needed help. One of our pools had a definite leak in its system. We called Adhair about this matter & they responded very quick. After checking the vinyl liner for leaks, it was found that the leak was in the plumbing of the pool. Steve pressure tested all of the lines determined it was on the return side & found the spot.......he's good!

We (Hunter Farms) called Adhai...

We (Hunter Farms) called Adhair Leak Detection on a Tuesday afternoon. At first, he told us how we could save ourselves a couple days' work by troubleshooting over the phone. We needed this pool going immediately. That afternoon, he stopped by and did his own evaluation. He found and made the repairs. He follow-up throughout the weekend and kept in contact until all was taken care of. The Owner was very happy. And since we work for the Owner, we were very happy. We are very pleased with his quality of work as well as his constant communication via phone and email. I would HIGHLY recommend Steve Malone with Adhair Leak Detection.

Had a mysterious water problem and Steve from Adhair was able to quickly and decisively determine the source of our problem. Showed up on a Saturday and explained the situation in terms we could understand and suggested follow up measures to take. Would recommend him and his company wholeheartedly. Thank you Steve!

We had been searching for a leak in a fire supression line with no luck in finding the leak. We called Adhair, he rearranged his schedule, met us & found the leak. What most impressed me is the Adhair rearranged their schedule & responded because of the emergency.

slab leak

As a nationally known drain cleaning & plumbing repair service we often have a need for leak detection. There is an apartment complex in St. Charles that we service & they had a water line leak in a apartment with a slab floor. We'd never used Adhair before but tried them on this job. They did exactly what we wanted.

locate gas line

Our company does extensive demolition in the greater St. Louis area. We found Adhair on They came to our site & located a 2" gas line. We needed this line found before we could demo a building. They did a good job.

found both

we hadn't used adhair before but they referred by another plumbing company, ask them to locate a water service & stop valve & they did

wasn't easy

We have hired Adhair before & have written a review about their work. This job wasn't easy. We were looking for the stop valve four a water service. They found that the riser that surrounds the valve had been destroyed during sidewalk construction. So they traced the line to a point between the sidewalk & curb, probed, & found the valve

Adhair found them

Our firm does extensive environmental projects in the metro-St. Louis area. We hired Adhair to locate primary service from two pedestals & power service to an area sump pump for a commercial facility & they found each service we requested

two problems

we'd been having a lot of air in our basket & air was leaving the return ports & we hired Adhair to help us. they tired to test the suction side lines but couldn't because the valves wouldn't hold pressure. we replaced the valves & had them come back. they found a skimmer line that was leaking. they did a great job finding our problems but i think their fees were a little high

claimed iconBusiness Response07/03/2011

I'm own a pool business in Southern Illinois. I have a very good friend that does provide the same service as Adhair. There is a fee for what we do and and the public is aware before we arrive. To say that the fee is too much is like saying fix it for free. This service isn't a hobby. We train, buy expensive equiptment and take classes to be able to find and fix your problems

I knew I had a leak in my water line. Missouri/American came out & help by telling me it was not between my house & the meter. I called Adhair & not only did they locate the line in my basement floor they found the leak in my basement bathroom,very thorough, good job.

Now we have heat

We live in house built on a slab. We have radiant heat in our floor. We kept losing water but didn't know if it was our water line or the radiant lines in the floor. Working with our plumber, Adhair located the leak in the radiant system now we're going to have our heat. They did a good job.

tough one

I live in a condominium in North Co. & there are four units in my building. We have one water meter for all the units & our water bill had tripled in the last two months. I hired Adhair to find the leak, but I didn't know where it was at or which building. Steve found the leak in my condo. I'm gonna get it fixed & save money.

Tried Hard

As a commercial & residential plumbing co. we have a need for the locating of locating private ulities such as water lines & stop valves before the water meter. Steve has been very successful in the past with such jobs. Recently we used Adhair to try & locate a fire supression line in an old warehouse. Steve tried very hard, but missed the locate by several feet. Fairness to him, the noise from forklifts & other activities made it very hard. We'll use him again.

Nice Job

Our firm does extensive environmental work in the greater St. Louis area. This one job required that we locate the private utilities that Dig-Rite would not locate. We contacted Adhair & met with Steve Malone. He did locate those lines & cables that we were searching for enabling us to avoid them & complete this job. We'll use Adhair again.

We had a leak in our pool but wasn't sure where, Steve told us about a simple test that led us to believe the leak was in the structure & it was. Steve dye checked, found the leaks & made the repairs. Well worth the money

Steve didn't leave until he found the leak! It saved us thousands because we did not have to tear up alot of concrete. I would recommend this company to anyone with a pool leak.

Professional,friendly and honest

After an hour on the job I determined Steve was an honest business man, which is my personal criteria for doing business with anyone. The job was done professionally and at a reasonable price.
