Water Leak Detection Specialists

A plumber can fix most visible plumbing leaks without delay. However, if the source of a water leak is hidden, a leak detection specialist is a better option. They can accurately locate leaks without exposing pipes.

Unlike some leak detection companies, we offer a complete end-to-end service. Our water leak detection services include:

  • Trace and access investigation
  • Support for home insurance claims
  • Water leak repairs
  • Full reinstatement of water damaged areas

An Aspect leak detection specialist will help prevent further damage to your property. They’ll locate the source of a water leak or ingress. A detailed report is provided as part of every investigation. Finally, they’ll provide a fixed price quote for repairing the problem, including full refurbishment of any water damaged areas.

WATCH: How we detect leaks

Most specialist leak detection companies use similar methods. There isn’t one method that’s used to locate any type of leak. Normally, several techniques are used on each job. Results from each technique allows attention to be focused in a specific area.

We’ve produced a series of videos to show examples of how the water leak detection techniques are used in different situations.

This video shows some of the techniques used when the source of damp could be either plumbing pipes or the roof.

How to find a water leak

Non invasive detection methods

The equipment used by our leak detection specialists for locating leaks are mainly non destructive. Leaks can be traced without having to expose pipes. The approach is cost effective compared to exposing parts of a property in the vain hope of finding a leak.

This approach is required by most insurance companies when an “escape of water” claim is being made.

Detection methods include:

  • Thermal imaging
  • Tracer gas
  • Acoustic surveys
  • Moisture meters
  • Borescope cameras
  • Salts analysis

Qualified tradespeople

Each of our leak detection tradespeople has a background in a specialist trade. This means we can schedule someone with the most relevant knowledge for every investigation. We can predict the type of leak based on information we ask at the point of booking. For example, if a boiler is losing pressure, and a central heating leak is suspected, we’ll send a leak detection specialist who’s Gas Safe registered.

As well as finding leaks in plumbing and heating systems, we can find any other type of leak in a property. We have expert roofers to investigate leaking roofs and gutter problems. We have drainage engineers to investigate waste and soil water leaks. We even have builders to detect water ingress through brickwork and masonry.

All of our leak detection specialists are fully equipped and can find a leak anywhere in a property. Their relevant trade knowledge means they can usually fix the problem quickly. It also means they can usually provide a fixed price quote for subsequent refurbishment work quickly.

We're fully trade accredited and registered with Gas Safe and the National Association of Drainage Contractors (NADC). All our leak detection specialists are vetted and fully trained. In addition, the Aspect Guarantee covers our tradesmen's workmanship for up to 12 months.
