How Do We Find The Water Leak?
We’re not just here to fix outdoor leaks. We also specialise in addressing indoor leaking issues because we know firsthand the havoc they can wreak on a home. From unsightly cracks in the concrete to damaged cabinets and irreparable plasterboard, leaks can even cause your house to shift and move.
To determine the cause and location of a leak, we have a range of tests at our disposal. Let me walk you through them:
Static test: This test involves using a mixture of fluorescein dye and water to trace any leaks through waste lines. We plug off the waste line and fill the shower tray with colored water to assess the waterproofing.
Hydrostatic Pressure test: In this test, we check if the water line can withstand pressure. If there’s a drop in pressure within a specified time, it confirms the presence of a leak.
Flood test: This is a simple yet highly effective test. By flooding the tiles and screens with water, we can determine if there’s any water seepage in the affected area, which confirms a leak.
Visual inspection: This test is crucial as it involves a thorough examination of various components such as taps, spindles, pipes, toilet cisterns, drains, and other plumbing fixtures throughout the building.
By conducting these tests, we can identify the root cause of the leak and its exact location, allowing us to provide you with the most effective solution.
