Our leak detection methods

Our specialists utilise the latest technology to effectively resolve issues, these include:

  • CCTV Inspection and Survey – These cameras identify different temperatures of various materials. Allowing our team to see which pipes are in floors and walls without damaging the structure of the property.
  • Acoustic Testing – A high-tech ground microphone is used to identify leaks when a change in temperature cannot be detected due to pipe positioning.
  • Tracer Gas – The pipes will be drained and filled with a non-toxic gas. The plumbers can then detect where the gas is escaping using a sensitive gas detector.
