Advanced Leak Detection Melbourne

A leak can destroy key elements of your home if you don’t catch it in time. Unfortunately, sometimes the signs of the leak are simply not all that obvious. A pipe might be leaking small amounts of water every day without seriously disrupting overall water pressure or making any noise. The first sign could then be brown water stains on the floor, walls, or ceiling.

Like all things, it’s best to catch it early. Reed Plumbing & Drainage Solutions can provide you with advanced leak detection in Melbourne using the latest tools and technology. Our check will ensure that your water supply system is in full working order without any leaks or scratches. Because we use the best technology, we can determine for certain whether or not you have leaks, where they are, and what size. We then proceed to apply the best possible fix asap.

Quick Tips & Tricks

Leaks can occur in various areas of the house, and they are not always easy to pinpoint. Without the use of specialised equipment, it can be near impossible to find the exact origin of a leak, or its cause. 

If you have a leaking tap, you are literally putting money down the drains. The amount of water that drips out of a tap will add up quickly. 
We are able to assist with all plumbing issues, no matter how big or small. 

Reed Plumbing and Drainage Services has an emergency plumber on call 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.

Just call our 24 hour Plumbing Emergency Line on 9331 6633.

Water that flows out of pipes can cause major flooding. You’ll be left with serious damage and mold growth when the flooding is over. Mold is harmful to humans and animals, and after a few weeks of prolonged exposure, can cause severe respiratory problems.

Common Questions About Leaks

One of the biggest benefits is that you won’t be paying a huge water bill every month, in a world where this resource is becoming increasingly scarce and precious. You also benefit from the fact that the water damage from the leak will not go on to destroy the interior elements or the structural support of your home. The leak detection can help to normalize the water pressure and is going to spot leaks that otherwise would never be identified. Otherwise, a small issue can grow into a very big problem. Leak detection can spot leaks in underground piping, roof piping, gardens, concrete slabs, and in locations that are simply inaccessible without specialized tools. Finally, leaks can pose serious health hazards if they are not promptly resolved.
If you notice that something is wrong with the water supply, then you might want to consider a leak detection report. The most obvious sign is that you notice signs of moisture, which is something of a giveaway. But if there are other problems with your water supply, like slow taps or strange noises, then you might also want to consider it. As a rule of thumb, when something is ‘up’ with the water supply, it is caused primarily by either a leaky pipe or a blocked drain. These are the two first points of call and are among the easiest to rectify.

There are 4 primary methods to detect water leaks. These are:

1. Thermal Imaging – An infrared camera pointed at an area will show lower energy levels in the area around a leak.

2. Acoustic Listening Device – Microphone held close to a wall. Sounds will be produced in areas where the pipe is cracked/leaking.

3. Tracer Gas – Two gases are introduced into the piping system. Tracer gas will leak out where there is a leak in the pipes. The gas itself is completely non-toxic.

4. Leak Correlators – Used in larger piping systems like farms and industrial complexes. Electromagnetic sensors are placed at strategic locations along with the piping system and can detect leaks by comparing time delays between signals.

Along with thermal imaging, acoustic listening devices are by far the most common and effective means to detect leaks in comparison to tracer gas and leak correlators. An acoustic listening device is able to differentiate the leak from the regular sound of the water flowing through the pipe. The benefit of this method is that it works on virtually any piping material and is 100% non-invasive. Leak detection is highly accurate and the size and location of the leak are irrelevant in terms of using this method.

We at Reed plumbing use a combination of high-resolution thermal imaging in conjunction with acoustic listening devices to detect each and every potential leak in your home, in the fastest possible manner.

Absolutely. There are leak detection tools on the market that can alert you to any leaks as they arise. This will save you time and money. However, it’s important to know the strengths and weaknesses of each device. Many of them will not suffice to detect all leaks, all of the time. Others work on certain pipe materials only.
