Identifying the source of a water leak.

When discovering a leak coming from the ground, it can be difficult to find out where the water is coming from. The following water tests should point you in the right direction:

Total Chlorine Test: Potable water (drinking water or tap water) is treated with chlorine to kill bacteria or any other pollutants that can potentially make water unsafe for drinking, washing hands, taking showers, etc.  The chlorine test will determine if the leak is coming from a water main. Chlorine will evaporate quickly, so it's best to get the chloring tested when the water is fresh.

pH test: Due to it's origin, rain water tends to be more acidic than treated water with a pH of about 4 to 5. Rain water  Treated water should have a pH range of about 6.5 to 9.5.
