Non-Destructive Leak Detection

Whether a slow drip or a gush; leaks can be a destructive force to any building. The fundamental issue with dealing with a leak is that the origin is likely to be from a pipe behind a wall or under a floor. Access will be problematic which will affect not only the repair of the leak but finding the leak in the first place.

When a leak happens, the damage begins. Time is of the essence. If the owner of the building contacts someone who is not skilled or does not have the best equipment (or both) then the leak will not be the only destructive force in the building. It is often too common for building contractors to pull up floorboards or take down stud walls in order to search for a leak and there is no guarantee that they will be in exactly the right place upon removal of the first item. Consider the implication if a leak is suspected to be under a tiled floor.

Our engineers work in a substantially more organised way than in the above example. Apart from the industry leading level of expertise and training, they have access to advanced technology in leak detection:

  • acoustic profiling

  • thermal imaging equipment

  • tracer gas testing technology

  • Salts and water testing equipment

  • Moisture meters

  • Endoscopic cameras

The benefit of our expertise and equipment means that we can detect a hidden leak without removing walls and flooring (i.e., non-destructive) and then work on repairing it with precision and minimum damage.

Once repaired, we will undertake a drying procedure before replacing anything that has been removed and decorating to a professional standard. It is certainly worth noting that all of this will be done with minimum disruption to occupants and by our very own staff- we do not need to sub-contract or find outside help.

Our reputation for getting the job done quickly, properly and to a high standard means that we are a preferred partner of many
