Leak Detection Plumbing Services

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? Not knowing how to deal with a leak in your pipes, your walls, your floors and your ceiling can be stressful.  If you answer yes, then you will need Absolute Plumbing to conduct a leak detection at your property.

Thermal Imaging

Our state of the art leak detection technology 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.

Acoustic location

The use of sound to determine the distance and direction of running water in walls, ceiling and floor boards. We use active location (the creation of sound to produce an echo) and passive location techniques (the detection of vibration) to find the source of the leak. 

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.
