Sharpe’s Water Leak Detection Services
Sharpe’s Plumbers provide a professional water leak detection service. We utilize the latest leak detection technology such as CCTV drain cameras to ensure we accurately locate the burst pipe or broken drain quickly to allow for targeted repairs to be carried out.
2 types of water leaks
The fresh water coming into your home runs under pressure through the mains water pipe which means a burst pipe can quickly become a huge issue in your home. The wastewater leaving your home through the sewer system (everything that goes down the sink, toilet, bath, shower, etc.) and the rainwater traveling through the stormwater drains is gravity fed, which usually leads to slower leaks. (Unless it has been raining or you have a blocked drain).
Detecting a water leak
Apart from high water expenses, there are many signs to look out for that indicate burst pipes and broken drain.
- wet areas of the garden that never seem to dry up
- an unexplained growth of the plants or trees in one area of your garden
- damp or mould growth on walls, ceilings, and flooring
- cracks appearing in concrete, brickwork, or tiles
- persistent water stains on walls, ceilings, floors, or woodwork
- warped or expanded cabinetry
- areas of paint chipping or bubbling
- a musty or damp smell
Checking the water meter
Set aside a period where you won’t need water for at least two hours. Turn off all the taps throughout your property and home, and switch off any water-using appliances (such as the dishwasher, washing machine and hot water system*). Take note of the meter reading of your home’s water meter then re-read the meter after two hours. If the reading has changed you could have a water leak in the mains water pipe. Call Sharpe Services, our plumbers have the right experience, training and equipment to detect a water leak in or around your home.
*Consult your hot water system manual for correct procedures
