Leaking plumbing is something we’ve all experienced, and can be extremely frustrating to deal with. This is made worse by the fact that not all leaks are as easy to pinpoint as, for example, an exposed tap under your sink with a visibly broken seal. Many times, it is impossible for the average homeowner to locate the location of a leak within walls, underground, or even in exposed piping where the source is not immediately obvious. This is especially true for gas and sewerage leaks. Some telltale signs you may have a leak include:
- Damp or discoloured walls, ceilings or floors
- Dank, musty odour
- Signs of water on pipes, as well as on other home fittings, that is not condensation
- Unexpected paint damage (spot fading, flaking, cracking)
- Odour of gas
- Occasional odours of sewerage, or other unpleasant smells
- Low water pressure
- Knocking pipes, hissing, or sound of water running
Even the smallest water leak is no joking matter – due to the water pressure running through our homes, that same leak can quickly turn into a torrent of water that not only damages your plumbing but destroys your home and belongings. Our cutting-edge Sydney leak detection services allow our experienced technicians to find and repair water, gas and sewerage leaks before they result in high utility bills and costly damage.
Cutting-Edge Leak Detection Methods
At Dial Up Plumbing, our leak detection services are both rapid and as non-intrusive as possible. To achieve this, we use the most advanced water leak detection equipment as well as technology to diagnose other types of leaks. Advanced Leak Detection Systems can utilise a number of modern methods, including:
Audio detection – This type of equipment allows technicians to hear behind walls, in floors/ceilings and underground – even at volumes and frequencies not detectable to the human ear.
Thermal imaging – Leaking liquids or gases can create temperature differences at their point of escape. Thermal camera systems quickly show these unexpected hot or cold spots, and are especially helpful in dark areas and spots that are hard to get close to.
Miniature cameras – Extremely helpful in detecting leaks inside of walls and in tight spots like attic crawl spaces and roofs, tiny cameras such as fibre optic cameras allow technicians to inspect spaces that would otherwise require removal of building infrastructure. This is particularly advantageous because just ruling out these areas would otherwise require altering your home’s infrastructure to get a good look.
Early Leak Detection
Any leak, large or small, will eventually result in damage to your property. Firstly, the exposure of external pipes, seals, fittings and connectors to leaking liquid or gas promotes oxidation and rotting, dramatically shortening the life of your piping. Our pipe leak detection and Sydney water leak detection services, therefore, extend the life of your plumbing. Leaks also cause extensive damage to your walls, ceilings and floors – both water damage and damage from the resulting mould.
When piping completely collapses, the flooding causes catastrophic damage to your home and can destroy many of your beloved possessions. It is imperative that all leaks are detected before getting to this stage.
Just a small leak can have a negative effect on your water or gas bill. Left unchecked, it is not uncommon for bills to double or worse – and the utility companies will not reimburse you for charges due to leaks. Detecting a leak early on can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in bills.
Worst of all, an undiagnosed leak can put you and your family in danger. Water damage can weaken the structure of your house and cause wall, floor or support collapses. Without water pipe leak detection, water dripping on wiring can cause a fire, as can leaking gas. Gas leaks can result in carbon monoxide poisoning.
Early leak detection not only protects your home, but it also protects you and your loved ones from potential injury or serious illness.
