Leak Detection

Leak Detection is just one of the areas Blu Jay Plumbing and Rooter specializes in. There are a variety of ways to determine if you have a water leak on your property.

How to detect a water leak?

  • Saturated Ground – Standing water or saturated ground, including moss and mud, where you know there is no sprinkler problem, is a good indicator of a water leak and it would be advisable to contact Blu Jay Plumbing and Rooter.

  • Increased Water Bill  – Our water bills in Southern California often fluctuate depending on the time of year, but if you notice a significant increase in your bill with no obvious source, you more than likely have a water leak.  The leak could be from a variety of sources so it would be appropriate to call a plumber that specializes in leak detection, as we do at Blu Jay Plumbing and Rooter.

  • Changes to Your Flooring – If a leak under your house worsens and remains undetected, it may cause discloration and soft spots in your flooring. If you have linoleum, you may notice bubbles and cracks.

  • Changes in Water Pressure – If the leak is in your main water line, you may notice a decrease of water pressure both inside and outside your home.

  • Sound of Running Water –If your house is like our house, we can always hear when water is running. so, we have to determine if the washing machine or sprinklers are on, or if someone is taking a shower. So If you can hear water running when no one is using water, it is posssible you may be hearing a leak in your pipes.

If you are experiencing any of the above situations, rest assured that Blu Jay Plumbing and Rooter can identify and resolve these issues.

Depending on the severity of your leak, it may be an invasive and expensive procedure to get it fixed. Leak detection is a great way to avoid unnecessary damage to your pipes and the foundation of your home.

Came on time and succeeded in unplugging bathroom sink drain. Warranty was only 30 days. Longer warranty such as 90 days will cost more.

I cannot emphasize enough how very lucky I was to have discovered these guys! I had a main water pipe rupture in my front yard and Blujay was recommended to me by a friend so I gave them a call and they were friendly and responsive and personable and showed up Within a couple of hours! They worked very fast and very hard and very efficient with competitive and great pricing. They will definitely be my go to from here on out, and I wish that I had known about them for the last several years. We are very lucky to have them in our community! We all know how difficult it can be to find, honest and efficient places to help us with the situation’s, and they are hands-down, a highly recommend!

We are very happy with their service. Their office responded our calls fast, and were very respectful. We needed to change 10 feet of sewer pipes. They took extra effort to find out the source of the problem and once they did, they communicated about the job very clearly. They answered all our questions and immediately started to work for hours, and finished the whole job the next day. They provided us some photos of different stages of the job, showing gradual completion of the whole process. They were very respectful and behaved very professionally. We are very happy with their work and definitely will call them anytime we need plumbers in the future.

I love this company and the crew. Pedro is always on top of everything. I have used Blue Jay a couple of times now and I highly recommend their services. They know exactly what needs to done, have experience and solutions for problems and have kept our building free from flooding and damage.

On Jan 10/2023 when it was raining really hard, noticed exterior drainage system was clogged and water was rising and close to getting into the house. I called a few who promised to call, but never did and one who quoted $750 / first hr because of rain, the lady at blujay (Pillar) was curious, understood and promised to call me which she did within 15 min and their price is the same rain or shine. 30 min later Mario and Jose showed up, assessed the issues. worked fast and were able to unclog the drains on both sides of our house in 1 hr while it was raining hard. I can’t say enough about these guys; they are professional, reasonable and ethical. Thank you Pilar, Mario and Jose Ben Sedighi, P.E. LEED AP

Incredible customer service, impeccable value. I've worked with many plumbers in the past, and they all seem to gouge you on price but NOT Blu Jay. Honest, attentive, and immensely kind. 10/10 RECOMMEND!!

The team at Blu Jay were very communicative and got the job done right away! They made scheduling easy and any questions or concerns they always made our company feel like a priority. Thank you Blu Jay Team!

This is the best plumbing company I've ever worked with. The initial call was easy and straight forward and the lady who helped me was helpful. Mario was very professional and friendly and took the time to answer my questions and explain things. He arrived on time and they are extremely reasonable in pricing. They are the BEST! I am so glad I found them.

We used Blu Jay Plumbing and Rooter to hydro-jet the main sewer lines at our condominium building. Pilar was super helpful, and even called to let me know the plumbers were on their way. The team arrived on time and completed the work within the scheduled timeframe. Luis was very knowledgable and explained in detail how the building lines connect to the City sewer. Competitive prices and great work—I highly recommend supporting this family owned business.

Karen Woodward
September 23, 2022

Pedro and Luis are fantastic. We had to replace 100-year-old pipes going from our house to the main sewer. This was going to involve digging ditches in our driveway and a huge one in our neighbor’s backyard, because the connection to the city sewer was actually on their side of the property. I was definitely dreading this. But Luis and Pedro and their team made the whole process so easy. They were efficient and communicative, not only with me, but also with my neighbor. They explained everything, making sure I understood exactly what was going on, and what I was paying for. They made this whole process so easy. I’d met with 3 plumbers about this job, and I definitely chose the right company. I’d give them more than 5 stars if I could.

July 21, 2022

Luis, Pedro and team were extremely helpful in getting our plumbing working. Our inspection missed things that Luis was able to pick up and get resolved. Very detailed and professional.

Plumbing inspection on new house - very professional and highly recommend!

Chris Bassett
June 28, 2022

Plumbers were courteous and helpful, but I felt I should have been presented with all options before any attempt was made to break up interior slab. This left a terrible amount of dust. I would hire them again but strongly suggest checking with other contractors regarding all options before breaking up any slabs. Most local plumbers are aware of drain pipe conditions in my neighborhood for houses built in '60's without camera inspections. These were not.

Super Techs Mario & José have a 5-STAR WORK ETHIC. Within the same MINUTE of changing into his work boots, José was in the trench, digging. The job also included camera work & hydro-jetting. My elderly mother was without water for LESS than 90 minutes total on this Mainline Sewer Replacement. All work was completed before the scheduled time. Clean-up was detailed & flawless. TRULY an all-around blessing. MUST mention Pilar here, who fields all calls at Blu Jay, revises all Estimates, and relays messages to El Jefe. Her follow-up skills are OUTSTANDING. She calls you back when she says she will and there was NEVER a worry on the paperwork. You're in good hands with her in the driver's seat. Pedro was a TOTAL professional, stated his assessment clearly, stressed the warranties on Blu Jay's work & materials, mentioned payment options, and answered EVERY question I asked. Overall: An ALL-STAR TEAM here. Would ABSOLUTELY hire again. NOTE: Have some chilled Gatorades ready for these skilled workers because they come READY TO WORK and GET THE JOB DONE.

Very professional. Mario and Jose very knowledgeable in hydrojet cleaning and camera inspection. Reasonable pricing for the work performed

Dwight Wilkes
April 13, 2022

Pedro and Luis at Blue Jay Plumbing and Rooter did an excellent job in hydro-jetting two lines under our house cleaning out over 25 years of grease and negelect. My wife and I could not figure out why our washing machine would frequently back-up spewing water all over the utility room. Mopping up all the water became really annoying. Washing machine repair guy replaced a water control valve; didn't solve the problem. He informed us it was a blockage in our drain lines under the house. That is when we turned to Blue Jay Plumbing and Rooter. Pedro and Luis identified the problem and hydro-jetted the lines. I could not believe all of the grease that came out of those two lines. They did a great job and we have not had a problem since. We are now very careful about allowing anything greasy going down our kitchen sink. I strongly recommend Blue Jay Plumbing and Rooter for all of your hydro-jetting needs.

Blu Jay Plumbing and Rooter were very very Professional and very courteous in helping me with work needed to be done repairing my broken sewer pipe issue at my home with very good contact and very good knowledge of what the problem was and options to fix it, Pilar was the first contact I made, she is outstanding and made the process flow in keeping me in contact with plumbers Pedro and Luis, Blu Jay help me coordinate payment options and explained to me in good detail and didn't make me feel pressured, offered good financial options. Blu Jay fixed my sewer issues fast and is now working well, I can't thank them enough for an outstanding working experience, It's hard to find the kind of company with staff that works to make you feel that professionalism and above customer experience with genuine understanding that these type of matters can be stressful, I do highly recommend Blu Jay Plumbing and Rooter. God Bless Them.

Excellent work - Did exactly what was needed. Don't bother looking for others. Just call Pedro and you are in great hands. And, they were by far the least expensive.

Kendra Langer
January 26, 2022

We called Pedro about our outdoor drain issue and both he and Pilar in his office responded within 5 minutes! He promised to be at our house in 4 hours, texted us en route and had his office confirm his visit. He was in and out in 40 minutes and was thorough, explanatory, responsive and successful at rectifying our issue. It was so refreshing to have a real professional respond, visit and repair our problem in a timely fashion. We had contacted our ‘regular’ plumber and another but Blue Jay called promptly. We unequivocally recommend Pedro and his staff and will positively use them again! (hopefully we won’t need to)

Blu Jay Plumbing absolutely gets a "5 Star" rating from us for : Quality Professionalism Responsiveness Knowledge Value Luis, Pedro, and Pilar were excellent to work with - "Thank You!" We will definitely use Blu Jay for all our plumbing needs in the future and I will recommend them to my family and friends.

Erik Jessen
January 15, 2022

Replaced a piece of clay sewer pipe that had been damaged by tree roots with a piece of plastic pipe. The clay pipe was more than six feet down and partially under the sidewalk. This was NOT easy digging. Luis and crew carefully hand-dug the pipe out and replaced it. They filled in the hole and cleaned up the mess. One day later, it's hard to tell where the hole was dug. Quality, efficient work at a reasonable price. We definitely recommend Blu Jay and will use them again in the future.

Judith Roach

Pedro and his crew were timely and professional. We have an 80year old house with that age piping. He unclogged our sewer/ pipe line exiting the house by removing tree roots and Roto-rooting our pipes. He ended up needing to do a trench less repair of our main line and lining the sewer line to the main trunk. Pedro was very forthright in how our pipes looked with his camera system and what was needed to make our sewer line clear to avoid future backup’s. ( which ALWAYS happens around the holidays!). He helped us get our house back to normal pre-backup. Thank you Pedro.

The technicians spent a lot of time to clear the clog using the hydro-jet system. Then they showed the pipe using their camera. They did a very good job.

Blue Jay Plumbing installed a new main sewer line at my residence. I was very pleased with the professional, and courteous manner in which they completed the project.

These guys were great. Solved the problem with a sewer pipe blockage, inspected main line and gave an honest evaluation of it- not the expensive replacement job we’d been quoted by another company, and came up with a great solution for how to replace the old sewer pipe/drain that we have that is problematic, which we will do next time we get a blockage. Appreciated the follow up call as well. Thank you

April 26, 2021

I called Blu Jay Plumbing on St. Patricks Day at 5 PM, they came out to my property by 7 PM. I was amazed at the professionalism from the moment I called and spoke to Pilar to the work completed by Christian and his team. Unlike other plumbing rooter companies I've used in the past, Blu Jay actually cares about the customer's needs. The reason I called them was because the company I had used before told me they would not be able to come out to clear our clog until two weeks later. Pilar was super helpful and made multiple calls to all the plumbers to see which team could come out to my area. She kept me in the loop the entire time which was extremely considerate and professional. The job was not easy and Christian and his team were there for almost 3 hours. Nonetheless, they did an incredible job and we were able to flush our toilets again, LOL. I would highly recommend Blu Jay Plumbing and Rooter to everyone in the SoCal area!

Blu Jay Plumbing is the place to call for all your plumbing needs! Pilar was super helpful on the phone and kept us updated on the arrival time of the plumbers. We had an issue with our main drain line and Pedro & his team came out immediately to clear the line. They hydro jetted the line and cleaned up the insane amount of build up that was pouring out of the clean out. I have never been more satisfied with a plumber. In the past, the line was not cleared properly and we still had issues the same day/week. Blu Jay took good care of us and left the place super tidy. Thank you Blu Jay for your hard work! I would recommend this company to all my friends, family, and neighbors.

This company was great. I called them and tried to get them to come before the end of the day and repair a leak. They were honest enough to say that they couldn't come that day, but they'll come first thing in the morning. The plumber later that day called and asked if he could come that afternoon, which he did. He sent me photos of what the problem was to get my approval to do the work. He was done before the end of the day. The residents checked to see if there were any more leaks. The dispatcher was also great. She was very easy to communicate and work with. I would use them again in the future.

I feel it's rare to still encounter A+ customer service these days, but I was very happy to have my faith renewed after working with Blu Jay Plumbing last week. We were panicked because one of our sinks was clogged, yet again, but now our second sink was also backing up. We did not want to call the last plumber who told us our only option was to pay them 5K+ to repair our issue. Based on their reviews we decided to call Blu Jay. I reached Pedro who was calm, professional and reassured me they could determine and fix the problem and that they adhere to all CDC guidelines. As promised, Luis and Rueben arrived within their timeframe, masked, with shoe covers and maintained appropriate distance. It did not take long for them to troubleshoot our sinks, but I was happy to see they too used a camera to determine what was clogging our pipes. They too reported that we had major root blockage, but that they could hydrojet and allow us time to save up for our necessary pipe replacement. We so appreciated their honesty, professionalism and competitive rates. Luckily, their amazing hydrojet cleared most of the root problem and we are already saving to have Blu Jay return for our needed work. Not only that, but they included on our invoice that what we paid would be deducted from our future repair. We will only use them from now on! We found a business we can trust and we saw first hand that they put their customers first and this makes all the difference. Call them if you're ever in need, you can't go wrong!

All of the employees were very courteous and professional.

The Blu Jay team responded quickly to my request which included replacing all of my area drains. They provided me a quick estimate and were able to start work immediately. The team responded quickly to any questions I had and we very attentive. I was impressed by their efforts and hired them to also replace my driveway, 1/2 my garage and driveway apron. The team still stuck to the completion schedule even with the additional work. Pedro Sr and Jr were excellent partners and I will refer them to friends and family in the future. Good job!!

I've had this great small business at my home on 3 different occasions over the last 6 months for different issues and they have been solid all 3 times. I had 3 different technicians out all 3 times and they were always clean, professional, and very clear as to what the issue was and how they were going to resolve it! They've jetted our sewer lines, identified a major leak (that we were not aware of) under our kitchen (which explained a minor moldy smell we were experiencing during that time), replaced old corroded sewer line with ABS, uncloggedd 2 drains, re-routed two water lines, and conducted a full inspection of all our sewer lines with their camera. Great small valley-based business!!
