Local Leak Detection Specialists

There are several reasons you may experience leaks in your pipes. A Perth leak detection specialist will be familiar with these common causes and know the signs:

  • Deterioration of piping – Pipes beginning to leak after years of use is not uncommon. If you have an older home, it is something you may want to be prepared to experience.
  • Blocked drains – It is not unusual for drains with significant blockages to back up to the point that a pipe begins leaking because of the increasing pressure.
  • Broken seals – Seals meant to stay tight can wear down over time. This leads to leaking.
  • Fluctuating water pressure – If your water pressure changes quickly, it can damage the integrity of your pipes.
  • Temperature changes – Pipes can leak if the temperature changes very quickly in a short amount of time. Breaks occur because of the contracting and expansion caused when the temperature fluctuates.
What Causes Leaks

How to Know if I Have Leaking Pipes?

One of the most frustrating aspects of leaking pipes is that the problem can be undetected for a long time. Here are some clues you may have leaking pipes:

  • Low water pressure.
  • An unusually high water bill – This is often a giveaway because most water bills tend to be reasonably constant unless you are filling your pool or using a large amount of water for another project.
  • Mould and mildew spots – If you notice spots, you are most likely dealing with a leak.
  • Damage to walls and warped floors are significant indicators that you have a problem.
  • Unpleasant odour – Mould and mildew have odd and distinct smells.
  • Leaks can also be found when you notice a drop in water levels from your swimming pool, running toilets or even noticing dripping from your air-conditioning unit
