When a pressurised water pipe leaks the water flows out which causes the pipe and surrounding material (mud, concrete tarmac) to vibrate. This sound, or vibration, is transmitted along the pipe and through the surrounding material (ground-borne water leak noise) which we pick up with our equipment.
Thermal imaging cameras are a very useful instrument in the water leak detectors’ tool box, and it offers a quick, non-intrusive method to locate water leaks and trace the route of hot water pipes. Thermal Imaging Cameras can also be used for HVAC, Electrical, Mechanical and Building Thermal Surveys.

“FM Environmental was delighted with the swift response provided by Leak Detector and the efficient detection of a leak in one of our heating water pipes. This quick and accurate detection enabled us to minimise water damage in our premises and effect a repair as soon as possible. I would happily recommend Leak Detector especially for its non-invasive style of leak detection.”Kevin Fitzpatrick – MD
“When I found out I had a leak under my kitchen floor I thought all the tiles and the concrete would have had to be dug up to try and find it. So I was delighted when my plumber told me about Leak Detectors. I rang to make an appointment and within a day or two Leo came out to find the leak. After a short space of time he detected the leak using listening equipment. Only half of one tile was removed and a hole about 12 inches by 8 inches was dug up with very little mess being made. After his visit Leo sent me a report of what he had done and what he had found, along with photos of the hole and the leak which I was then able to forward on to my insurance company. Since then I have recommended Leak Detectors to a friend and also to my own plumber.”Pamela Ballantine – UTV Presenter
