The benefits of choosing leak specialists

You may be tempted to call a plumber when faced with a water leak in your home, but did you know that the decision to hire a plumber instead of a leak detection specialist could greatly impact the outcome of your issue?

While plumbers are skilled in fixing visible plumbing faults, they often struggle with locating hidden leaks within properties and underground.

Many plumbers resort to invasive methods in order to find the source of the problem causing damage to your home in the process.

On the other hand, a specialist leak detection company like us possesses the expertise and equipment required to accurately and non-invasively locate, access and repair all hidden water leaks quickly and efficiently.

When time costs money

A key consideration when dealing with any water leak is time and damage management. The longer a hidden leak goes undetected, the more significant the damage to your property could become.

Leak detection companies utilise cutting-edge technology to swiftly locate leaks, minimising disruption to your home and potentially preventing costly repairs.

In addition, leak detection specialists can also help you make informed decisions on economic factors, such as whether or not to carry out repairs or simply monitor the situation.

Key Takeaways

  • Leak detection companies offer the specialised expertise and technology to accurately locate hidden water leaks.
  • Time and damage management is crucial when dealing with hidden leaks, making quick diagnosis and non-invasive methods important.
  • Choosing a leak detection specialist over a general plumber can benefit homeowners in terms of cost-savings and minimising potential property damage.

Top 5 reasons to hire a leak detection company instead of a plumber

Some advantages of hiring a leak detection company instead of a general plumber include:

  1. Access to specialised leak detection equipment and techniques
  2. Highly trained leak detection technicians with specific expertise
  3. A focused approach to detecting and locating leaks
  4. Minimal disruption and non-destructive solutions
  5. Experience handling a wide range of properties

Why general plumbers struggle with leak detection

We frequently hear from customers who have hired a plumber to find the source of their water leak only to be left with a large bill, a hole in the floor and a hidden pipe that’s still leaking.

Leak detection is a highly specialised task requiring the accurate tracing of plumbing pipes behind walls, ceilings, floors, and sometimes even underground. These factors make it particularly challenging for non-specialist plumbers to access and locate leaks without the necessary tools, expertise and experience.

Traditional plumbing methods often involve a destructive approach to finding leaks, such as digging trenches along the pipework until the leak is discovered. However, this can be time-consuming and disruptive for property owners.

In contrast, a leak detection company offers non-invasive techniques and advanced equipment, such as acoustic sensors and moisture meters, to precisely locate the source of a leak. This minimises disruption and saves both time and money.

Our team is continuously learning and upgrading its skillset to stay ahead of industry trends and utilise the newest innovative techniques to detect even the most hidden of leaks.

The financial costs of choosing a plumber to find your water leak

There are several economic factors to consider when making the choice between a general plumber a specialist leak detection company.

The first major concern for homeowners is the impact of a water leak on your water bill. Undetected leaks – especially mains water leaks – can lead to exceptionally high bills, due to the continuous escape of water from broken pipes at high pressure.

Leak detection companies specialise in accurately pinpointing the source of all water leaks which saves you both time and money on unnecessary repairs, avoids structural damage, prevents mould growth and keeps utility bills low.
