How is leak detection handled? It really depends on the background of the leak.
For example is this ongoing, have you already tried a certain degree of leak detection, whats the material of what the leaks in, or can you even see any signs of a leak? Maybe your pressure is just dropping or you have a high water bill.
In all cases, we need to ask you some questions to then advise on the best way forward. To start with tracing leaks are normally charged per hour until we can ascertain the source you can see our hourly plumbing rates here- more information and top tips on leak detection can be found below on our FAQ's below.
What Kind Of Leak Detection Can Ry carry out?
Pressure TestingWe can connect a Rothenburger machine to see if you have any drop on your pipework. This wont tell us where its leaking but is the first step if you are unsure.
Thermal Imaging CameraWe can use an imaging camera's to try and locate the positioning of a leak using heat detection in concealed spaces. This will depend on what flooring or wall material you have and the pipe depth.
Trace & Access Or Re-RunsYou may have a leak visible in a ceiling, in which case sometimes the easiest solution is to make access to an area before the next steps. Unlike some companies, we have a building team and installation plumbers. So if we find make access we are able to undertake any repairs.
When May You Need A Specialist?
Acoustic DetectionSometimes a leak may be in a material that is not easily picked up by cameras. It may be required that your you or your insurance get a specialist to carry out acoustic detection.
Tracer Gas DetectionIf you have no obvious signs of a leak but are experiencing damp. A damp specialist or leak detection specialist may advise a moisture probe map - to try and build an indication of the cause.
