Frequently Asked Questions

We can stop your leak.

Leaks cost money and cause damage; boiler leaks can even leave you without heating and hot water…

A burst pipe, boiler losing pressure or a high water bill, are all nuisances; we know you need it resolved as quickly as possible!

Since most of our customers have a buildings insurance policy that covers leaks referred to as “Trace and Access”, our service becomes effectively at no cost as the insurer returns fees as part of the claim.

UK Leak Detection is independent, your best interests are our priority. We have vast experience with insurers and their excuses!

We are proud of what we do and want to help our clients understand the process of leak detection.

Call us straight away or have a browse around the site to find out more about the technology we use, including Thermal Imaging, acoustic leak detection, tracer gas detection and more. We also have information on the insurance process and an FAQ that answers many common questions.

We do understand the stress a leak can cause and make sure an insurance claim can be made if appropriate, to minimise the financial impact.

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 monitors 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.

If applicable, we also help with presenting your insurance claim and in getting your home restored and repaired from any water leak damage or from accessing and repairing the leak.

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

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!

Whilst we cannot offer formal advice or assistance with a claim directly with the insurer as this is an FCA regulated role, we do have a wealth of first-hand experience in how the average claim proceeds and the experiences of our customers

You are welcome to ask our engineer to look at your policy as part of our leak detection process, the terms used are fairly common and they 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 feel worse than the leak itself!

Insurance companies sometimes make errors in dealing with claims, leaving their customers without cover or grossly underquoting works and costs. Therefore we recommend using an independent, FCA registered claims handler to act on your behalf. We have first-hand experience with a number of companies that will deal with insurance claims and undertake restoration works.

We are not linked to these companies but have seen a good performance of this role for our customers as well as some that we would avoid like the plague!
