Thanks again Scott

Just wanted to let you know my plumber got to me yesterday and fixed the t-joint. The thread had worn, probably fitted originally a bit shabbily he thinks. No damage getting that corner cupboard out and leaving worktop alone thank goodness. Thanks again Scott for being able to pinpoint where it was with your equipment….fab.

Mark & Kim Howard-Jones from Bournemouth

Very thorough and persistent

I thought it would be good for you to know Bernie Clark did in fact accurately find our small leak in our sealed central heating system. He was very thorough and persistent but continued searching until he was fairly certain he had found it. Due to the cool weather in April and a holiday in May we decided to keep topping the central heating system until the end of May. When we excavated the position Bernie had indicated it soon became apparent this was where the problem was. The leaking joint was repaired and all is now well. Without your help and expertise I am not sure we would have found the leak. Please pass on my thanks to Bernie.

Thank you for sending your engineer

Thank you for sending your engineer I have been so upset after having another leak detection company out who could not detect the leak.

Delighted when he managed to locate the leak

The engineer (James) had the difficult task of locating a relatively minor leak in a large house with solid and suspended wooden floors. He politely managed my expectations saying that it would be challenging so I was absolutely delighted when he managed to locate the leak. Better still the leak was in a hidden but accessible area so repairs were carried out by my plumber the same day. I would like to thank LDS and James for a first class service!

Used several different leak detection methods

The engineer, James, approached the leak search in a structured and methodical way and ruled out any other potential leak site. He then used several different leak detection methods to confirm the leak site. The leak was within inches of the spot he identified under a concrete floor.

Alex Graham in Othery

Polite and charming young man

Your technician James came to me yesterday morning to locate the source of water leaking onto my kitchen floor. He soon decided it was not from the washing machine or the lavatory, which I in my hopeful ignorance hoped it might be! It was, of course, coming from under the tiled floor. He could not have been more efficient, nor more diligent, in trying to pinpoint the exact place so that only minimal tearing up of the tiles would be necessary. He had a very frustrating time trying to get a consistently correct reading on his machine but his patience was admirable and eventually all was well. James is a polite and charming young man and it was a pleasure to have him working in my home. Thank you.

Engineer: James  |  Date: 06.05.2017

Cynthia Court in Dorset

An excellent job and report.

Following problems with our central heating not reaching full temperature a power flush was done. Following this the system was not working fully we changed the central heating cover provider and asked the new provider to replace our boiler.. At the end of the installation during the testing period the engineer could not get two of the radiators to get to full heat. He checked the thermostatic valves but could not improve the situation and advised this back to his office. Following this initial installation we were encountering a drop in the pressure when we had both the domestic hot water and central heating both on. Over a 12 to 24 hour period this was sufficient for the boiler to lock out which then required the boiler to be re-pressurised back to 1.5 bar. When this first occur I pressurised the boiler back to 1.5 bar but even with the central heating switched off we continued to loose pressure. I then left the central heating switched off and also isolated the radiators and pipework using the isolation taps on the flow and return on the central heating. This allowed us to still have domestic hot water and also with this configuration, the system pressure remained constant. I then rang our new service provider and asked them to make a return visit. Two engineers returned and isolated each radiator using the radiator valves and gradually brought them back into service. They also could not get the two radiators back to full heat and advised that the it would required all the pipework to be inspected which would require the carpeting, furniture and floorboards to be lifted and removed in 6 rooms to check the pipework for leaks or a blockage. This would be chargeable work and we would be responsible for any re-instatement costs as well . As we were getting to more mild weather the engineer confirmed that the system could be left with the central heating switched off and the radiators and pipework isolated with the flow and return taps. As this was going to involve major upheaval in our property and significant costs to identify the problems I was aware from the internet that there were Leak Detection companies who could use a number of methods using new technology to identify any leaks or blockages. Compared to costs exposing and accessing the pipework LDS costs were equivalent to 5 to 6 hours at the support companies rates. . I had also contacted our House and Contents Insurance and they advised that the trace and access clause did not apply as there was no visible evidence of leakage damage to the property. The LDS engineer, Mark, arrived promptly and we went through the history of the problem. He then systematically checked the system using both traditional and newer technology methods. At the end of his activity we discussed what he had found which was no evidence of a leak or damp. However, using the thermal imaging it identified the lack of heat to the 2 radiators was due to a blockage in the pipework in the kitchen. We advised Mark that we were planning to have our kitchen refurbished and he suggested that the existing pipework be capped of and new pipework be run from the boiler flow and return. As the boiler pipework runs near the kitchen this could then be programmed when the kitchen refurbishment is done. However, to be completely thorough as LDS could not identify any leak, Mark has asked us to run the central heating back up and see if there is a drop in pressure when the system is at full temperature. Finally ,a full and detailed report has been provided by email . Many thanks for an excellent job and report.

Courteous helpful and knowledgeable

Both of your engineers Bernie and Mark were courteous helpful and knowledgeable and took great care to thoroughly investigate the cause of our central heating problem. A leak was eventually found and a comprehensive report issued. It may interest you to know that yours was the second leak detection company to come to our property over the last few months the first company being absolutely USELESS (name supplied on request). In complete contrast LDS approached the problem most professionally, used many and various methods to detect the leak and during the process we were kept fully updated. It is rare nowadays to find a service that is unarguably value for money and I would have no hesitation in recommending LDS for problems of this sort. Please pass-on our thanks to Bernie and Mark.

Fabulous service, quick and efficient

While I think it’s a fabulous service, quick and efficient, systematic and state of the art technology, £500 net of VAT would have been my ideal price!

Robin Bowerman from Nottinghamshire

Would definitely recommend this company.

Fantastic service. Arrived on time; extremely knowledgeable; predicted that the fault lay with the boiler from the description I gave, even before testing the integrity of the pipework. Once complete check had been made, the original prediction was confirmed as the problem; the fault was, in fact, the heat exchanger. The company that take care of the system had been called out twice before; their view was that the fault lay with the integrity of the pipework, and not the boiler. The full check confirms categorically that the fault is the boiler, so I will get back in touch with my central heating cover company. Though this has cost me the excess amount on my house insurance, it has been well worthwhile because I had been convinced by the heating cover company that the fault was the pipework and was thinking of excavating all floorboards and floors……so glad I called LDS! Fantastic response; fantastic knowledge; superb service. Would definitely recommend this company.

The process of detection by the engineer was very thorough. Eventually two leaks were found using hydrogen/nitrogen tracer gas. They were from central heating pipes under the solid floors.

Thank everyone for the really excellent service

My husband and I just wanted to thank everyone for the really excellent service you have given us – Tony with the booking and the really wonderful Bernie Clark for his detailed “detective” work. We have spent nearly two years being fobbed off by our Idea Heating Engineer, saying that our boiler’s constant drop in pressure was from a tiny hole in one of the copper pipes. All would be well once we found it. We now know that the boiler is the problem! We followed Bernie around the house, like groupies, as he inspected/tested every inch of the house where a leak could have occurred. We were completely fascinated. We felt that his investigative work yesterday fully justified the invoice cost.

Quality of staff you sent

Pinnacle Clacton are extremely happy with your responses and service and by the quality of staff you sent to undertake the investigation. This was by no means an easy task due to the lack of specific drawings relating to the CWS pipework and the routes. The engineer was very thorough and methodical in his investigation and after a scan of most of the site was able to identify a location that was in an area where it was very unlikely that there would have been water pipes – a first dig did not identify any leak but with further support and very much deeper than was believed possible a MCWS pipe was found and the advised location was right on top of a faulty coupling (one that had never been tightened from install). We would be happy to recommend you and will do should we come across others looking for support in this area – you are welcome top quote is based on these comments. Thanks again to you company and your local engineer for a speedy and professional response.

Express my sincere thanks

I would like to express my sincere thanks following the visit of your senior engineer Barry Cronin to my premises in Harrow, Middlesex on Friday 13th November.
Following a drop in pressure to my megaflow system and extensive investigations by my plumber I was lead to believe that there was a leak in the pipework below the ground floor (as there was no evidence of a leak anywhere in the house). I referred the matter to LV insurance and one of your engineers visited. He could not find the leak. I contacted LV again and they suggested a second visit by a senior engineer.
On arrival Barry asked for my account of what had happened. Based on what I said i.e. that the pressure dropped quicker once the heating was on his initial reaction was that it was something to do with the boiler but he had a number of tests to carry out before coming to a final conclusion. Barry concluded that it was the heat exchanger in the boiler and an appointment was made with Worchester Bosch for Monday 16th November.The heat exchanger was exchanged and to date there has been no loss of pressure. Barry’s approach was truly professional and he is obviously a dedicated and extremely competent engineer. Can you please pass on my thanks to Barry?

Speed and efficiency

I was very impressed with the speed and efficiency that Barry Cronin identified the damp problem that we have had for several months, and other contractors that we have employed have not. Many thanks for a good job.

I would like to say a big thank you

I would like to say a big thank you to your team in helping me with the water that was being lost in my park. Especially Barry, his work has been outstanding down to finding a leak within one to three meters. You helped me save about 800 cubic meters of water a week!! Happy Christmas and New Year

The detection of gas was very quick

The detection of gas was very quick and obviously the leak was close by. We were given a spot to dig but even after opening quite a long trench we found no pipe or substantial water ingress into the trench. I have returned today and opened a longer trench at right angles and now found the leak. The leak was actually 2.1 meteres from the indicated spot. Without LDS we would not have had a hope in hell so glad we used the service. The area above the leak is gravel but unbeknown to me the gravel sits on 3 inches or so of rough concrete so I think the gas was running under the concrete and then under some slaps before exiting from the weakest point where the slabs butt the house wall.

The central heating leak has been fixed

The central heating leak has been fixed !! I can to praise Lee enough. He immediately installed confidence on his arrival and is a very good ambassador for your company. We were considering renting our own thermal camera and finding the leak ourselves. I am sure we would have spent hours even days trying to find it, and looking at where the leak is and the dry area around it, I am sure we would not have found it ourselves before spending a great deal more money than we paid you.

A big thank you

Just wanted to say a big thank you for sending Barry to detect my leak today. He detected the leak and reassured me that there is nothing to worry about and that it would soon be resolved. Also, at my request he turned the water mains off, which is the first time in ages that I cannot hear running water under the floor, which has kept me awake for the last 3 nights. Once again a big thank you for sending such an experienced man I was delighted with the service

Engineer: Barry | Date: 31.10.2013

Mrs M White from London

Was thorough and very polite

Barry has visited my property this afternoon to undertake a gas test in the hope of moving my insurance claim forward.

Please pass my thanks for his patience on to him in due course.

Andy Scott from Fareham

Hard work and determination

I just wanted to let you know that Brett successfully identified where our central heating leak was. We had our floor dug up on Friday and the leak was in the area that Brett had marked out. I would be grateful if you could thank Brett for his hard work and determination to find the source of our massive water loss. I have been very impressed with your company and with the efforts made to minimise damage to property when tracing leaks. I will most certainly recommend you to anyone who might find themselves in a similar position.

Engineer: Brett | Date: 06.10.2013

Judith Latheron

He managed to identify the problem

We had a specialist in today named Barry, who had been referred by homeserve to find a leak. He managed to identify the problem being the shower. He went down in the celler to see the extent of the damage and told me it was severly wet everywhere down there when we ran the shower. He told me what I was dealing with, where others coudnt. He told me the extent of water damage which could even make the kitchen unsafe to access. He even gave me advise on how to deal with the issue for which I will follow. I understand that he will be writing a report to homeserve, which will enable us to take the step. Thanks

Engineer: Barry | Date: 03.10.2013

Mr. Devlukia from Ilford

He identified a major leak

Your engineer, Barry, came yesterday to diagnose internal leaks in the above house. I would like to praise him for his manner and endeavours to detect the water leaks. He identified a major leak (from a downstairs toilet). This is a problem which has been ongoing for a very long while and caused us a lot of expense and stress. We can’t thank you – and particularly Barry – enough for finding the root of the problem. I took readings from yesterday to today (24 hours) and they show the consumption has dropped by 450 litres – hence the leak! Many many thanks.

Engineer: Barry | Date: 27.09.2013

T.Hargittai from Orpington

We are delighted with the work carried out

Mr Eglinton from County Durham

Extremely polite and most sympathetic

I am writing just to say what a really helpful and efficient member of staff you have who called out to our property on Friday 13th September to detect a leak for Homeserve. His name is Barry but unfortunately I didn’t catch his surname. He was extremely polite and most sympathetic. I have to say I think he is a credit to your company and I think it’s only right you are told. People are very quick to complain but never quick enough to give credit when it is due.

Engineer: Barry | Date: 16.09.2013

Julie Robinson from Bradford

Thank you for excellent service

I wanted to say thank you for excellent service we received from your service engineer yesterday. He explained what he was doing no why and located the leak that has ‘evaded’ plumbers, heating engineers and Homeserves best for some time. I would certainly recommend your company and your engineer. In the days of cowboy builders it was a real pleasure to meet a true professional.

Thank you very much

Engineer: Lee | Date: 03.06.2013

Mrs G Crayford-Venn from Aylesbury

Attended promptly this morning

Firstly, I wanted to let you know that Russell attended promptly this morning and conducted a thorough diagnosis of the apparent water leak. Given the size of the property, this took some time. He was extremely methodical, courteous and was careful to keep soft furnishings clean etc. Using several techniques, he was able to locate the source of the leak to an underfloor CH feed pipe, laid under screed in a hallway cupboard. We were able to verify this after having excavated a small area. I’m convinced that there would have been no way of finding this leak without the assistance of Russell and the resultant damage would have been so much worse. Please pass on my thanks again to Russell Noble and be assured that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your company in future.

Engineer: Russell | Date: 31.05.2013

John Murrells from Berkshire

Never heard of Leak Detection

I had never heard of Leak Detection, I had many plumbers try to find my leak but Brett was spot on!

Mr Patel from Birmingham

Please pass on my appreciation

I am writing to express my satisfaction with the services provided by the engineers who attended my property on Friday 10th May. The two engineers were extremely efficient in detecting a leak from a radiator pipe buried in concrete which had remained undetected following several visits from various engineers sent from our insurers. Both engineers demonstrated the highest level of consideration for my family and were polite and courteous at all times. Please pass on my appreciation.

Engineer: Brett | Date: 10.05.2013

Vickie Tomkins from London

Russell was brilliant. He is very professional and knowledgeable and found the leak very quickly.

Shelly Farrow from Croxton

I was very impressed with LDS

Thank you for emailing the report and receipt following your engineer’s inspection on 3rd May at my cottage in Staplehurst, Kent. I was very impressed with LDS. It was easy to arrange an appointment. I was given a time to expect your engineer. He rang to say he would be slightly delayed, which I much appreciated. Barry (your engineer) was quietly efficient and inspired confidence. It was obvious he was thoroughly expert at his job and he was able to detect the leak as well checking the whole system, which was reassuring. I hope it does not sound patronising if I say that Barry was polite? I would like to thank him, as well as LDS, for an excellent job. I will be forwarding the report to the heating firm I use, with a recommendation about LDS in case they have other clients who may need to use your firm.

Engineer: Barry | Date: 03.05.2013

Mrs Fairfax from Staplehurst

Lee gave us confidence

Lee gave us confidence in the way he handled the problem, and his wide knowledge base he was also very polite and easy to have round. Also checked with us next day that eveything was ok. Excellent ambassador for your company. I only wish I could refer all our heating servicing to Lee. Many thanks.

Could not have been more accurate

Thank you for the Service provided at San Diego Road in Gosport. Here is a picture of the leak which was embedded about 6 inches into a concrete floor, your detection could not have been more accurate and we only opened up about 18” of the flooring.

Had a mysterious leak somewhere on the ground floor of our house, seeing as we have a tiled kitchen diner and concrete floors to two other reception rooms, I was dreading employing a builder to dig up and investigate. There is no need for the prospect of lots of messy work, as Lee found the leak in our utility room. He was very polite, thorough and charming with my two year old son. Leak found, builders now employed and only a small area of floor to come up. Thank you for your excellent service.

Date: 20.04.2012

Elaine from Waltham Abbey, Essex

We are extremely impressed with the service from LDS and from Mark in particular. He was fantastic on both sites that he came to this week. We have a large portfolio of properties and as you can imagine a lot of leaks so we will undoubtedly be coming to you for future leaks. Many Thanks

Testimonial from: 2011


Thank you very much. The detection was very efficient, and much quicker than I expected ! You may like to know that the leak was exactly where your engineer said it was, right next to the soil pipe in the corner. It turned out to be a small hole worn in the underside of the rising cold water main, the copper of which was bright and shiny. It seems that this must have been worn away by a rubbing action against the underlying concrete, as the overlying central heating pipes expanded and contracted, thus pushing the cold main downwards. The lack of visible water from the leak may be due to the water running down the outside of the soil pipe, and along the trench under the floor in which it lies.The leak is now completely fixed.

Testimonial from: 2011

Graham Travers

Thanks very much for your companies professional services.You certainly helped to reduce the time scale in locating the leak and proved that by having the correct equipment and personnel, unlike the shower of you know what that was sent in by the school originally, the leak was easily found. Could you also thank Mark for his services. I will have no hesitation in recommending your company in the future
