When it comes to leak detection, there are a couple things that will dictate the success of the job. These are ‘experience and process’ and ‘technology and equipment’.

Most water leaks tend to start as a minor issue, but over time that minor issue can very easily become a significant problem. Understanding the nature of water leaks has allowed our team to hone our skills in two specific areas: diagnosis and repair.

Leak Detection Diagnosis: a 5 stepprocess.

Leak Detection Diagnosis:

Diagnosing leaks involves a thorough understanding of the behaviour of water as well as building design and structure, due to the fact that often the location of the leak may not expose its origin.

The leak detection diagnosis procedure that we have developed has been devised (and is ever evolving) from years of experience, matched with the most recent and highest quality equipment.

Leak Detection 5-Step Process:

  1. Our experienced staff can offer some advice over the phone upon your call.
  2. A technician is then booked in to come to your property ASAP.
  3. Our technician then investigates the dilemma and gets to the root of the problem.
  4. You will be presented with repair options (communication is key!) and on your choice, the repair is undergone.
  5. Your place is left clean, tidy and good as new! No more leaks!

Leak Repair Specialists

Understanding the leak repair process.

Everyone from the person who takes your call and books in your job, to the technician that comes to your property, has been trained to ask the right questions and make the whole job as smooth, simple and efficient as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes a leaky tap?

A dripping tap in your home can be annoying and can cost you lots of money over the years. Fixing these leaking taps can save you money and lots of frustration.

Taps are made from either rubber or ceramic. These parts over time wear out and fail, which causes the tap to leak. Think about how many times a day, a week or even a year you turn your taps on. They wear out, nothing lasts forever. Changing these parts when servicing the tap will eliminate the leaks.

Another contributor that causes a leaking tap is a crack or indentation on the valve seat. When the tap is turned off and the water meets the valve seat, a crack or indentation means the seat cannot do its job and stop the water. The water creeps into the indentation or crack between the washer and the valve seat causing it to leak.

In some cases, if you have a mixer tap and it is leaking, the ceramic disc cartridge may be worn out.

Another factor that contributes to leaking taps and mixer taps is water pressure exceeding 500kpa. The higher the water pressure, the more pressure it puts on your taps. This in turn speeds up the failure of these ceramic and rubber parts.
