Our Three Modern
Leak Detection Methods

Thermal Imaging


A handheld device used to find hot water leaks in your floors, walls and ceilings. This non-invasive device uses infrared light to measure the heat emanating from your leak. This helps our team of professional plumbers to find your leak quickly and easily.

Acoustic Leak Detection


This device consists of tiny microphones that can pick up the sound of running water or the hissing sound of water escaping under high pressure. The machine helps us detect the leak along the pipeline as the sound will get louder as we approach the leak.

Gas Seeking Machine


We pump hydrogen gas into your pipeline for underground water leak detection. Hydrogen gas has tiny molecules that can fit through the smallest hole in your pipe. This gas will then permeate through soil, brick and even asphalt. Then one of our specialist plumbers operates a ‘snooper’ to sniff out the escaping gas helping us detect even the smallest of leaks.
