With National coverage LDS have located thousands of homeowners leaks and realise how devastating a leak can be to your property causing water damage and costly repairs to your home.
Occasionally it may not be possible for you or your plumber to locate the source of the leak and can also be due to obstacles such as floorboards, walls and cupboards. This is where leak detection can be most helpful as the leak detection equipment is specially designed to find a leak anywhere in your property without causing any damage.
Sometimes there will be visible evidence of a water leak such as dampness, water stains and actual water, however in other cases there is no evidence apart from a very high water bill! Common water leaks in the home are on the Central Heating System or on the mains pipe work in the kitchen or bathroom.
Central heating leaks could be the cause of your boiler losing pressure on a sealed system, this could mean that you may have a hidden leak on your central heating pipe work somewhere in your property. Whatever your heating system, whether it is old or new, our experienced engineers will be able to diagnose if the problem is in the boiler or the pipe work.
Hidden leaks can be difficult to find. At Leak Detection Specialists our engineers use specialised leak detection equipment to find your leak causing little or no damage to your property. Our leak detection engineers have many years experience in finding leaks and use various leak detection methods to accurately locate your water leak to 1 square metre, so any excavation is kept to a minimum when the pipes are repaired.
