Doctor Agua Water Leak Repair has been fixing rain water leaks in cars right here in the Portland/Vancouver area since 1998. For many years, the company was known as the Water Doctor. The name changed in 2004 to Water Leak Repair but people never gave up calling for the doctor. So, beginning in 2010, the doctor, once again, is in.
How does this process work?:
Diagnosis and repair is done by appointment only at 2101 E. Fourth Plain Blvd. in Vancouver, Washington.
The shop is about a mile from the I-5 Bridge. Google Map gives excellent directions.
The process begins when a customer, you, phones 1-800-582-5025. Dr. Agua wants to know the make, model, and year of the leaky vehicle, where the water appears and whether your vehicle has been collision repaired.
Together, we will choose a time and day to meet at the shop. One half hour before the appointed time, you will call 1-800-582-5025 to confirm the appointment and receive explicit directions to the shop.
At the shop, you will fill out a little paperwork, hand the keys to Dr. Agua and drive away in either the car that accompanied you, or we can arrange for a rental from one of the agencies near by.
The repair process begins with a diagnosis or water test for which there is a
flat fee, and the actual repair is almost always completed for very little
The next time you are contacted it will usually be to make arrangements for pick up and delivery of the repaired vehicle.

Do you fix sunroofs?
: Doctor Agua Water Leak Repair can fix many sunroof leaks. However, if your sunroof is inoperable, it is undiagnosable and you will need to have it operable before the leak problem can be addressed unless you decide that we should just seal it up.
My car/truck is wet, where is it leaking?
: Over time your car, truck, minivan, suv is going to leak. Like the human body things wear out from age and use. Factory seam sealant deteriorates; weatherstrips and rubber seals degrade or get damaged; body seams open after minor collisions -fender benders are the source of innumerable trunk leaks, for instance. Door panel splash shields and vapor barriers, radio and satellite antennae mounts, roof racks, body grommets, cowl seals, heater box manifolds can all begin to leak, as can tail lights, brake lights and light bar appliques.
Often a leak comes from more than one source, especially if it is caused by minor impact damage.
Do you do crash repair?
: If your car, truck, minivan or suv has been in an accident and is now leaking, unless it was a minor fender bender, you should take it to a body shop to have it repaired. The following is a list of just a few of the many body shops in our area whose work Dr. Agua knows and trusts: Kadel's
