Do you often hear the sound of dripping or running water in your home or office when all water points have been turned off? Has your water bill risen without cause? Does your water meter dial turn even when all your taps have been turned off? If you answer yes, then you will need Absolute Plumbing to conduct a leak detection at your property.
This device is used in walls, floors and roof spaces to identify hot water leaks. It is a hand-held device and allows the viewer to view heat on a camera.
Used to detect the sound of running water in walls and ground.
Gas leak seeking machine
Hydrogen gas is pumped through your pipe system and a ‘snooper’ picks up a leak by detecting the exiting gas and pinpointing your leak.
Once our leak detection is complete, we will provide you with a free quote for repairs, and a plumbing report for your insurance or local council as proof of a concealed leak.
