Leak detection

Leak Detection Service In Cheshire & Manchester

Our leak detection service is non-invasive meaning there is no damage to your property, i.e. no drilling, excavations, dirt and disruption. We provide a detailed written report with colour pictures within 48 hours of our visit. In most cases the cost of our service is recoverable from your building insurance as part of ‘trace and access’ cover. Our company is Gas Safe Registered (previously CORGI) and our technicians have several years experience in installing and maintaining all types of plumbing systems. We can therefore offer a ‘find and fix’ service, including any excavation needed, which means you will not need to book anyone else to fix any leaks found. We can also help you with other plumbing or gas work, as required. And do not forget we are an NHBC registered building company so we can help in all aspects of building insurance work, including excavating/exposing hidden pipes, and dealing with any water damage as part of a building insurance claim. In short, we are a one stop solution for all your water leak and water damage problems.
  • Thermal imaging which identifies hot pipes under floors and in walls.
  • Acoustic microphones which can hear water movement and measure distance along hidden pipes.
  • Endoscopic cameras which can see into hidden and small spaces.
  • Protimeter moisture meters to tell us exactly where the damp is.
  • CCTV cameras which can see and record the condition of underground drains.
  • Consumption tests which measure any ‘unknown’ water usage when all taps and other outlets are turned off.
  • Pressure testing to identify failed joints and pipes.
  • Gas tracing of hot and cold pipes using hydrogen gas which can pass through most materials including timber, concrete and tiles.
