Trace and Access Water Leak Detectors

If you have a hidden water leak, it’s important to locate the source quickly. Failing to act straight away could cause further damage to your property and a claim being rejected by your insurance company. They usually insist on an investigation by a trace and access leak detector.

Uncovering the source of a leak is a complex task that often goes beyond simply exposing pipework. Aspect team of professional leak detectors are equipped with various non-invasive detection methods to trace the origin of a leak. Their expertise in identifying the source of any type of leak is unparalleled.

At the end of each investigation, we provide a comprehensive trace and access report. This detailed document is essential when your insurance company reviews an escape of water claim. We help to ensure a smooth and efficient claim process.

WATCH: How we detect leaks

This video shows some of the trace and access techniques used for water leak detection.

Every investigation is different. Our expert leak detectors follow a methodical approach. They decide on the tests to use based on the evidence available to them and the results they get.

How to find a water leak

Accessing and repairing leaks

Tracing a leak will lead our leak detection engineer to a specific location without making holes in walls, ceilings, or floors. They will pinpoint the location with a high level of confidence. Accessing the source of the leak is required as visual confirmation.

The “access” part of a trace and access investigation is usually highly targeted. This results in minimal damage to building fabric. If accessing doesn’t reveal the source of the leak, the process of tracing the leak continues.

Unlike some other specialist leak detection companies, our leak detectors also provide full repair services. They will stop the leak and can quote for full reinstatement of water-damaged parts of the property.

With experts covering every trade, we can facilitate every part of your trace and access claim.

Water meter checks

We advise our customers to check their meters regularly. We often find leaks at properties without visible signs of water damage. Usually, a high water bill is the first indication of a leak below a property.

Checks every 3 months will pick up pinhole leaks in supply pipes buried beneath your property.

Our plumbing leak detectors can find the source of a leak in pipes buried several meters beneath the ground without needing to dig. We can then replace old lead pipes that have slowly deteriorated over decades.
