We offer a full Trace & Access service in York and the surrounding area, we work with many of the UK’s leading insurance companies and can provide a full water leak report that you can provide to them. If you have cover for this, they may pay for this service too. We can help with that process.
Plumbing Leaks are the most common type of water leak in a home. Whether you have a leak in your bathroom, kitchen, ensuite or in walls, leak in floors and ceiling leaks, we can help. Even if you have no idea where your leak is, we can find leaks in hidden locations using our specialist tools.
Is your boiler pressure dropping and turning off your central heating? Are you getting an error message on your boiler, such as an F1 boiler error? Is your tundish dripping? We can help locate your water leak, even if your pipes are hidden and the leak is not obvious, our experts can help.
How leak detection works?
Professional leak detection companies such as us will use trained and experienced leak detection engineers to find the leak in your home or business. We also use a range of specialist equipment to help maximise the chances of finding your water leak efficiently and effectively. This service will be tailored according to the specific property and the type of leak you have but it will likely include several of the following – acoustic listening, thermal imaging, moisture mapping, borescope cameras, pipe tracking and tracer gas.
How much does UK leak detection cost normally?
The cost of the service will depend in particular on the size of the property you are looking for a leak to be found in. As you might expect, finding a leak in a factory or office block is different to finding a leak in a small flat. That said, typically, a ‘typical’ UK domestic service will be in the region of £450 – £650. This includes the initial scoping, inspection survey and report production. We provide this service to many leading UK insurance companies and our service meets their high standards. They trust us, so can you.
Is water leak detection worth it?
For the typical cost of water leak detection services, it can be very beneficial for a number of reasons. Firstly, it can help to pinpoint the location of a leak which could be causing direct water damage to your property, or indirect issues like boiler pressure loss. Also, it can help to then understand what repair is needed to both the leaking pipe and the structure around it. Plus, if you are on a water meter, it can help to stop or reduce the waste water (and the cost of that) on your water bill. These can help give peace of mind.
