C K One Stop Plumbing Solutions has over 20 years of experience and knowledge in finding and fixing water leaks. Having worked for South West Water previously, we can give you valuable insight into water usage and leakage management.
Internal water leaks don’t usually occur very often, but when they do it is best to get them fixed immediately.
A small leak can quickly become a big problem if not attended to, causing damage to walls, ceilings and floors, not to mention furniture and other personal possessions. The cost of damage from leaking water will always far outweigh the cost of repair by a professional.
Even if you have just noticed the leak, it could have been happening for many days or weeks, and may even be part of a much larger and serious water problem.
As soon as you have noticed leaking water in your home, contact us immediately to arrange a visit.
Keep an eye on your water supply
Your water supply is crucial to your way of life, so make taking care of it a priority. Faulty water pipes can lead to low pressure, contamination and leaks.
Remember, if water is lost before it reaches your house, you’re still paying for it. That’s because the water is lost on your property and you’re legally responsible for the pipework on your land.
Worried you might have a leak in your water supply system? Do you have a leak that is not visible and don’t know where to start to fix it? We’re experts in water leak detection and can overcome leaks whenever we find a problem.
Our Hi-Tech leak detection service uses latest methods and technology to pinpoint leaks non-invasively.
Water escaping from a pipe makes a noise. An acoustic microphone can pick up this sound. Initially this can simply confirm the existence of a leak, and its approximate position. Further work, including calibrating the sound from 2 different positions, can pinpoint its precise location.
Many people do not know the route of their underground pipework and in these circumstances the RD500 is an effective instrument for locating and tracing buried plastic and/or concrete water pipes.
The images below show the type of acoustic microphone and the RD500 that we use in day to day leak detection services.
