Our Services


Leak detection is an essential service that safeguards the integrity of your property’s plumbing and infrastructure systems. It involves identifying unauthorised or unexpected water, gas, or other fluid leaks that, if left unattended, can cause significant damage.

Early detection and resolution of these issues prevent property damage, conserve water, reduce the risk of mould growth, and save on costly repairs.

Some of our leak detection services include:

Acoustic Leak Detection Service

Acoustic leak detection is a highly effective method for locating leaks within plumbing systems.

We use advanced sound technology to detect the noise from water or fluids escaping from pipes under pressure.

Ideal for both residential and commercial properties, acoustic leak detection is especially useful for identifying leaks hidden underground or within walls where they are not visible.

Thermal Imaging

Utilising advanced infrared cameras, this technique captures temperature variations to visualise areas where leaks may be causing changes in the thermal profile of a building.

This method is particularly effective for detecting hidden leaks in walls, ceilings, and floors and identifying moisture that has not yet manifested visible signs of leakage.

Pressure Testing

Pressure testing is a critical and precise method to assess the integrity of plumbing and piping systems.

This technique involves applying pressurised air or water to the pipes and monitoring the pressure to detect any drop, indicating the presence of hidden water leaks or burst pipes.

Pressure testing is a definitive approach to ensuring pipelines are secure and leak-free. It is suitable for both new installations and existing systems suspected of leakage.

Benefits of Leak Detection

Cost Savings

Detecting and repairing leaks early can lead to significant cost savings. Unaddressed leaks can increase water bills and cause costly damages requiring extensive repairs.

Water Conservation

Professional plumbing leak detection helps identify leaks early, conserving water and contributing to environmental sustainability.

Prevents Structural Damage

Water leaks can weaken the structural components of a building, leading to serious issues like mould growth and even foundational damage. Early detection of leaks can help maintain the structural integrity of your property by addressing problems before they escalate.

Don’t Ignore A Leak


Even if a leak appears to be small, it is best not to ignore it. A build up of moisture behind walls and under floors can be incredibly detrimental to your property. In the case of a burst pipe, this needs immediate attention.
