Our popular, non-invasive leak detection service
We know that pinpointing the source of a leak isn’t always easy. It’s even harder when you don’t have the appropriate tools. That’s where we can help. We provide our experts with the training and specialist equipment they need to efficiently and effectively carry out thermal imaging leak detection.
Thermal imaging is a common, non-invasive method of leak detection that involves using specialist infrared cameras to measure the amount of infrared light emitted from a surface. This enables you to identify temperature differences in your pipes. Being able to ‘see’ hot and cold in this way makes it much easier to find the leak.
The great thing about thermal imaging detectors is that they’re incredibly accurate at detecting moisture or locating water leaks in your property. They can even identify leaks in buried or hidden water pipes that you may not know exist, and go where moisture meters cannot.
The thermal imaging process is both simple and effective. Having said that, the time it takes to conduct a thorough building inspection depends on several factors. This includes the size of your property (large areas obviously take more time) and the severity of the problem. Give us a call on 01623 422488 for details.
As we’ve already established, thermal imaging is a 100% non-invasive, simple and effective method of leak detection. It’s also faster and generally more affordable than more invasive methods, meaning you can return to your property as quickly as possible and with minimal disruption.
Of course, leak detection using thermal imaging is only the first step. Once the source of the leak has been detected, it’ll need to be exposed for repairs. Our team has the skills, experience and insurance to excavate the area to reveal the source and, when necessary, dig down to hidden pipes. We can even carry out the repairs for an additional fee if you don’t have a preferred plumber!
No, thermal imaging is a safe and non-invasive method of leak detection that simply measures the heat emitted from your pipes.
Yes, our thermal imaging cameras are powerful enough to detect leaks in pipes that are hidden or buried below concrete.
Yes, thermal imaging cameras are excellent at detecting water leaks underground.
While an active IR system uses a short wavelength infrared light, thermal imaging cameras use mid- or long-wavelength infrared energy to accurately detect differences between hot water and cold.
