We have over 20 years of experience in the industry, so we are truly experts in analyzing aboveground and underground water pipe issues!


Underground Pipe Leak Detection & More


When it comes to underground water pipe leak detection, we have several methods available. We can use acoustic, non-destructive methods to listen for noise in pressurised pipes, or tracer gas detection which is where we insert an inert gas into your pipelines. We also use loss analysis with correlation equipment to locate leaks on water mains and fire services. Thermal  imaging and infrared cameras are used to detect leaks in balconies and on hot water pipes.

Water leak detection requires different methods depending on many factors, such as the location of the leak and the depth of piping in the case of underground leak detection. With our highly trained team and expert experience we can get the job done quickly and effectively. Although some plumbing problems can be fixed on your own, other problems are difficult to diagnose without special expertise and equipment, and that’s when water pipe leak detection experts are there to help.

Not all leaks are mains pressure requiring main water line leak detection. Some can come from your gravity fed storm and sewer drains. If left unattended, they can cause severe damage to the foundations of your house. The faults with these drains are normally noticed with internal or external cracking to walls, or windows and doors not opening or closing properly.
