Trust the Experts to Detect Leaks
We’re experts in leak detection, and our investment in the latest technology and systems makes us even more efficient in our work. We will find leaks anywhere on your property, and fast.
What Leak Detection Equipment Do We Use?
We use thermal imaging to show us the hot and cold areas, which accurately detects any leaks in hot water systems. It also prevents walls and floors being torn up to detect leaks in underfloor heating or similar systems.
Non-destructive Moisture Meters
Our engineers have radio frequency moisture meters that find moisture behind ceramic tiles, vinyl floor coverings, wood, and drywall amongst many other types of walls and floor coverings.
We use this method to quickly find leaks and to create a holistic moisture map of the property.
Gas trace detection
With accredited gas safe engineers, we are able to use a trace gas of a blend of hydrogen and nitrogen to find leaks. The gas that then seeps through the leak in the pipe is picked up with detection probes.
A borescope is a camera on a long, flexible stick that can be pushed through a leaking pipe, to allow our engineers to visually locate small leaks.
What Does Our Leak Detection Service Entail?
Identification of Leaks
Our specialist trained engineers will identify hidden leaks in your workplace, home or other property using non-invasive techniques. Unless necessary, we don’t remove walls or floors.
If required, for an extra cost our specialists will repair the leak and supply a full report that can be given to your insurance company.
A key area of our investment is in specialist drying equipment. This is able to dry domestic and commercial properties, in a variety of construction types, in a incredibly efficient manner.
When a leak springs up, mould is often left behind after a repair. We provide specialist mould remediation, bringing your property back to its original state.

Manchester Leak Detection FAQs
We’re based in Tameside Business Park, Denton and operate in all areas of Greater Manchester.
We operate in all areas of the UK and have a two-hour response time across the country.
Leaks in pipes are usually detected by the following:
• Unusual water pressure
• Unexpected or unexplained cracks in your building
• Unusual water sounds
• Unpleasant odours and dirty water
If you notice an unexpected spike in your water bill and you haven’t changed water use habits, then could be a sign of a hidden leak that will need an expert to detect.
Over time, leaks can wear down parts of your building and cause structural deformities. As a leak doesn’t always have to be water, you could end up with other potentially harmful liquids in your property which could cause ill health.
