Leak Detection Specialists

Acoustic Leak Detection

Acoustic Leak Detection, finds a leak using ultra sensitive microphones, which ‘listen’ for leak sounds that are generated through the damaged pipe work.

Our software can differentiate between leak generated sounds and background sound contamination.

Forming / H2 Gas Leak Detection

Forming / H2 Gas is non-toxic and does not harm any pipe work or the environment and is used to detect leaks on all pipework, including under floor heating systems.         

This specialized gas is pressurized through the pipes and makes its way to the surface, where it escapes allowing us to detect your leak with our gas detector. This allows us to locate your leak to a specific area, even under concrete; we use this method on main lines for its accuracy. These are non-invasive techniques and do not cause any damage to your property.

Thermal Imaging (Thermography)

Initially we would use a Thermal Imaging Camera to possibly identify pipe locations buried within the building structure i.e. walls, concrete, cavities etc.

These cameras are non-invasive and show differences in the surface temperature allowing us to identify where the hidden pipes are situated with minimal disruption to you and your property.



Damp Investigation

Did you know that in 2001 mould was classified as a Category 1 risk to health under the Health and Safety Hazards Rating System in the UK.  This puts the humble mould in the same category as asbestos and other pretty gruesome health risks!

Damp investigation is an essential part of leak detection. Damp diagnosis is vital as if left untreated can lead to mould growth & wet rot.

Often the first sign of a leak is damp or mould growth, but older properties can be naturally damp, particularly in basement areas converted to habitable rooms. Sudden arrival of damp should be treated as an indication of a leak.

Drainsure Leak Detection’s damp investigation uses advanced technologies and our extensive knowledge to find what is the cause and nature of a damp problem.

Long-standing problems are often blamed on ‘ground water’ or ‘rising damp’. In our experience, these are normally well known problems and not something that starts all of a sudden for no reason, particularly in modern constructed homes. 

Main causes of leaks incorrectly identified as damp:

  • Leaking waste fittings
  • Poorly maintained or installed tiles
  • Flat roof leaks
  • Blocked drains
  • Leaking water mains
  • Poorly fitted windows or doors
  • Poorly installed DPC or tanking
  • Treatment of Mould
