Water Leak Detection
With years of expertise, our non-invasive practices and cutting-edge equipment, we can get the work done effectively.
When we detect leaks in your system, we ensure the problem is addressed. Our main aim is to locate leaks quickly and securely and assist you with resolving the source of the leak so that you can be confident that it has been handled swiftly and safely.
How do you know if you have a Water Leak?
Water leaks are often discovered by their tell-tale signs:
- Water stains or mould on walls or ceilings
- Damp patches on floors
- Cracks in walls or foundations
- Unexplained wet areas in your yard
- Unexplained increase in your water bill
If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to act quickly to prevent further damage to your home or business.
Risks of ignoring water leaks
Water leaks, if left undetected and unrepaired, can cause several problems in your home or business premises, including:
A burst pipe in an office basement might accumulate water beneath the building, damaging the foundation over time. Implementing a proper tracking/reporting system will prevent costly damage to a building.
Disruption of Business
A leak in the plumbing of a commercial building can disrupt regular business operations. For instance, undetected leaks in a plumbing system could cause an office to flood, thereby disrupting day-to-day operations.
Mould, Bad Odours & Mildew
Leaks in pipes cause mould and mildew to grow on a building’s interior and exterior, leading to cracks and watermarks on walls. In addition to ruining the appearance and smell of your business, it can also affect the health of your employees.
Finding the leak can prevent severe structural damage to your home. But knowing the causes of the leak is essential as it allows us to be cautious and stop it before it worsens.
What causes a water leak?
Pipes, typically encased in concrete and located underground, can last for many years. As the pipes age and the surrounding soil shifts, cracks may appear in the pipe joints, seals may wear down, and roots from trees can press against the pipes, causing stress and deterioration.
Cracks, crevices, and small holes in pipes will allow water to seep out slowly over time. New puddles or sinkholes in your yard and a sudden drop in water pressure can be signs of damaged pipes. Worn seals and connectors and loose pipe joints can cause condensation on and near appliances and make a banging or clicking noise when using water.
Installing water treatment systems and insulating metal pipes can increase the strength of your pipes. The PH levels of your water can indicate if corrosion is occurring, but you cannot prevent decay completely. Older plumbing systems are at high risk of corrosion and should be replaced with newer models. Call Pipe Dream Plumbing & Drainage immediately when rust, discolouration, or warping is visible.

See Beyond the Surface: Unveil Hidden Leaks with Thermal Imaging Technology
At Pipe Dream Plumbing & Drainage, we leverage the power of thermal imaging technology to go beyond what the naked eye can see. This indispensable tool is not just about locating hidden leaks; it’s about saving you time, money, and potential property damage. When water infiltrates an area, its temperature differs from the surrounding dry areas. By capturing these temperature variances, we can accurately locate leaks, minimise damage to your home or business, provide detailed reports on our findings and offer valuable insights.
