You have saved the day, waking up cold with no hot water was no joke. You found our leak so simply, I wish I had called you weeks before!

Outstanding service, explained what they could do and how much it would cost when I booked. Arrived promptly and found my leak without making a mess. Altogether it made a troubling problem far less to deal with and I glad I chose to use them!

Water Leak Detection

We provide water leak detection and insurance assistance with the minimum of upheaval…

A water leak outside or on the ground floor can exist for a long time without detection.

Water mains and supply pipes can leak freely with no surface evidence or signs of damage; they slowly erode foundations and ultimately cause enormous damage to your home and can even spread to your neighbours property.

You might only be aware of a leak after receiving a high water bill or letter from your local water authority informing you of a suspected water leak.

The water authority regularly monitor at night to check for water loss with simple acoustic ‘listening sticks’ or use a monitoring device on your water meter called a ‘LeakFrog’.

UK Leak Detection can find these water leaks for you, we are award winners and are confident enough to say…

“If we don’t find it, you don’t pay for it”

We think this is pretty reasonable! We are the first and only in the industry confident enough to offer leak detection to most domestic customers on this ‘no find – no fee’ basis that other leak detection companies cannot compete with.

Damp Investigation

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 maybe an indication of a leak.

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

Incorrect Diagnosis

Often long-standing problems are blamed on ‘ground water’ or ‘rising damp’. In our experience, these are normally well know problems and not something that starts all of a sudden for no reason, particularly in the modern constion of 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

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

Benefits of using UK Leak Detection:

  • Non-destructive leak detection
  • Assistance with insurance claims
  • Keep costs at a minimum
  • Stop high water bills
  • Minimize property damage and disruption
  • Provide photographic reports

The NHS provide some sobering information.

Commercial Leak Detection

The effect a leak can have on day-to-day operations, workforce and even stock damage can make these leaks a real financial challenge to any business.

The scale of water loss and associated water consumption cost is often exponentially higher than a domestic water leak.

Many leak detection companies either do not have the equipment, or struggle to grasp the size or the scale of the problem, this can often become an obstacle to commercial leak detection.

UK Leak Detection realise that a leak in the workplace can be financially worse than one in the home

Advantages of using UK Leak Detection

  • Prompt action
  • Accurate results
  • Minimum disruption
  • Accurate survey
  • Latest technologies
  • Commercial equipment
  • Minimise water loss
  • Reduce damage

Insurance claims for leaks and water damage

You are welcome to ask us to review your policy as part of our leak detection process, the terms used are fairly common and we are pretty familiar with finding the bits you need in the policy documents.

About 95% of leak detection is carried out, as part of an insurance claim for water damage. Depending on the insurance company, we find that dealing with an insurance claim can seem to be worse than the leak!

Due to insurance companies often making errors in dealing with claims and either leaving customers without cover or under quoting works and costs, we recommend using an independent claims handler who acts in your best interests. We work with a number of companies who will deal with your insurance claim and undertake the restoration works.

We are not linked to them or recommend them for financial gain, but recommend the ones we refer to, for standing up for their customers.

We provide prompt and accurate technical leak detection in an industry that often views insurance as the path to a ‘quick buck’. Unlike our competitors, we only get paid for performing successful leak detections* as an insurer you will only be forwarded our invoice by the policyholder after we have successfully found the problem.

Our ‘no find-no fee’ service removes the danger of paying for failed leak detection and our ‘Trace and Access’ invoices are always separated from repairs.

All our engineers are CRB checked and will arrive punctually and deal with your clients professionally in what is often a stressful situation for them.

Our non-destructive methods reduce restoration costs and considerably limit the need to relocate policyholders while works are carried out, while providing them with a better ‘insurance’ experience.
