Water Leak Detection Services
Are you suspecting a leak somewhere in your plumbing system but are not sure where exactly? After all, a big part of the system is either underground or inside walls so you can’t have visual confirmation that easily.
Our team at Plumbers Ballarat is using the latest technology in the industry, that allows us to pinpoint the exact location of the leak without breaking down your walls to take a look.
We use sensor based and listening technology that is able to locate the leak by the sound of water dripping, or flowing out of the pipe. With this experience and technology, we consider ourselves to be the leak detection specialists in the Ballarat area.
If you suspect you may have a leak, but are not sure, get in touch and we will find it and fix it for you.
Water leaks can cause a lot of damage when they stay unnoticed for longer periods of time. It can lead to mould problems and the main structures of the house slowly rotting away, which gets very expensive and intrusive to repair.
And it is most often the case that these leaks are happening out of sight, causing damage inside your walls or foundation, without you even noticing. It is important to detect them as early as possible.
Plumbers Ballarat offers a leak detection service to find those hidden leaks early on and prevent more serious damage. With our equipment and fully qualified team of experts, we can find even the smallest and most hidden leaks without any hassle.
If you suspect a leak, have an old plumbing system, an unusually high water bill, or simply haven’t checked the state of your piping for a long time, it is a good idea to get in touch and organise a leak detection service.
Signs That You May Need a Leak Detection Service
If you have a hidden leak that is not clearly visible, there are some clear signs that clearly indicate a leak somewhere in your plumbing system.
- Soaking Floor - a pool of water on the floor can be a clear indicator that there is a leak in one of the pipes under the floor or inside a wall if the water seems to be coming from under the walls.
- Shower Leak - The slow sinking and movements of the house foundation over time can cause pipes to shift and crack. This is the main cause for your shower piping to start leaking and often this is hidden inside the walls, which can lead to serious damage if not noticed. Pay attention to the grout between the tiles, if they are constantly damp, waterlogged, possibly mouldy and never completely dry out between showers, it’s an indicator that you may have a hidden leak inside the wall.
- High water bill - when your bill is suddenly much higher, with no changes to your water use, it’s an indication that there may be a leak somewhere.
