One old-fashioned, best loved, and still-in-use way to have a water leak locator is with dowsing rods. They can be easily constructed in an ell shape from coat hanger wires and used to find a variety of objects from oil, metals, gravesites, gems and ground water. Dowsing rods can also be used to find pipes in homes and their leaks. Searching for anything with dowsing rods is referred to as divining or doodlebugging and, if water is the prime target, water finding, water witching or water dowsing.
Unfortunately for the romantics among us, dowsing has no basis in fact even though it’s been going strong since 15th Century Germany. For saner and more scientific results to finding water leaks, especially when roof repair is concerned, the ultra modern infrared leak detector now available.
Using an infrared leak detector heads off potential problems and finds hidden problems thereby saving the homeowner money and worry in the long run. As quaint as dowsing rods are for finding water, the infrared leak detector wielded by your local roofing contractor provides far better results as your modern water leak locator of choice.
