Dangers of Undetected Leaks
Whether you haven’t noticed any leaks or you have and are simply willing to soak up a small puddle of water now and then, neglected plumbing leaks can often lead to extreme property damage. Depending on where the leak is located in your home or business, you could face a wide range of problems:

Plumbing Leak Detection Solutions
The plumbing that runs throughout your home is often hard to reach – buried in foundations, sealed in walls and running through the ceiling. For many years, the only leak detection and repair solution was to break through the foundations, walls and ceilings. This caused homeowners extreme property damage, stress and was a very costly process. With modern technology, however, we do not need to go on a harmful, ‘search and destroy’ hunt for the source of the leak. Now we are able to see through walls, ceilings and floors to find the leak using cutting edge technology. We use several different types of leak detection equipment including:
- Pipe cameras
- Thermal imaging technology
