    Leak Detection London: Our Methods

    By utilising our advanced non-invasive leak detection methods, our team can trace any type of hidden leak within your walls, floors, slabs, and ceilings. We can even identify underground leaks without the need to dig for hours on end to trace the issue. Our no-dig solution means we can find your leak with as minimal disruption to your home as possible.

    Depending on the type and location of your leak, we may use thermal imaging technology, a hydrogen gas seeking machine, or acoustic leak detectors, along with a variety of dyes, to identify all undercover leaks in both residential and commercial properties.

    Leak Detection

    Thermal Imaging

    Our professional plumbers utilise a handheld device that can help detect hot water leaks in your floors, ceilings and walls without any invasive procedures. This innovative tool scans for heat being emitted from the leak using infrared light technology, which allows us to quickly and efficiently find the source of the issue.

    Acoustic Leak Detection

    Our specialised device uses tiny microphones to pick up the sound of running water or the hissing sound of water escaping under high pressure. As we approach the leak, the sound will get louder, alerting our team to the source of the leak. Therefore acoustic leak detection will find the source of your leak quickly and accurately.

    Gas Seeking Machine

    For underground water leaks, a leak detection specialist will first pump hydrogen gas into your pipeline. This gas will help us identify even the tiniest of leaks, as hydrogen gas molecules are so tiny that they can permeate through bricks, soil and even asphalt. As the gas begins to squeeze out of your leak, we use a specialised ‘snooper’ to sniff out the escaping gas, which helps us accurately pinpoint your water leak.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Leak detection works by using specialist equipment to detect irregularities in sound, temperature, and flow within a water system. Leak detection equipment can help identify the source and magnitude of a leak quickly and accurately, allowing for more efficient repairs. Depending on the specific situation, plumbers will use a variety of methods to pinpoint your leak and then offer a quote for repair. In some instances, your insurance company may cover the cost of plumbing repairs, but you will need to check your contract.

    Plumbers in London and around the UK typically use a combination of visual inspection and specialised equipment to detect leaks. Visual inspection involves looking for signs of water damage, such as stained walls or ceilings, warping around fixtures, boiler issues and dripping taps. Specialised equipment with the latest technology, such as acoustic amplifiers and ground microphones, can also be used to locate a leak quickly. Some experts may also employ other methods, such as smoke tests or dye tracers, to pinpoint leaks.

    The most effective method of leak detection depends on the type and location of the leak. In general, acoustic leak detection is typically considered to be the most effective way to pinpoint the precise location of a leak. On the other hand, if there is a leak underground, then a gas seeking machine is the way to go. In some other cases, methods such as dye tracers or thermal imaging may provide more accurate results.

    Professional water leak detection engineers utilise electronic location equipment and acoustic tools to pinpoint most leaks precisely. It is always best to speak to a water leak detection specialist or local plumber about your individual case, and they can usually provide you with a more accurate quote. Absolute Plumbing Ltd is happy to provide free quotes to all our clients, so you know how much it will cost before we begin.

    Depending on the location and severity of your leak, the cost of repair can vary immensely. For example, finding leaks in your bathroom taps may be inexpensive to repair, but replacing an entire pipeline due to a root invasion may cost considerably more. If you do have damaged pipes, it may be more cost-effective to consider pipe relining instead of digging up and replacing the pipe. 

     

    Most plumbers charge by the hour for labour, and depending on the size of the job, this could influence the price. We recommend calling us for a free quote, and with our no-dig solution and state-of-the-art water leak detection methods; we hope to help you save as much money as possible.
