4 Signs You Have Hidden Leaks And How Water Leak Detector Services Help

Plumbing systems can spring leaks when you least expect them! Repetitive dripping, flooding, and water stains are obvious signs that you’ve got a plumbing problem.

But, sometimes leaks surface where you least expect them.

From underneath concrete floors to behind walls, inside ceilings, and underground, you could have hidden leaks quietly damaging your property!

Without the help of water leak detector services, you’ll find yourself in hot water! Just to locate the leak and see its severity, holes will need to be dug, damaging your floors and making a mess.

But, before we delve into how water leak detection can help you, it’s important to be sure that you need it. Here are four signs of a hidden leak.

Big water bills

When a hidden leak hits your home, you’ll be wasting water (and money) without even knowing it! If you’re slapped with a suspiciously high water bill, you’ve likely got an undetected leak.

Considering something as simple as a leaky tap can waste up to 20,000 litres of water per year, it’s easy to see how high your water bills can spike.

Mould And mildew

Undetected hidden leaks don’t dry fast enough, creating moisture. And where there’s moisture, there’s mould and mildew.

Unfortunately, these frustrating fungi can cause respiratory problems. Considering the current Coronavirus crisis, you’ll want to hire water leak detector services ASAP!

Pesky pests

Where there’s moisture, there’s also pests. Keep an eye out for pest infestations, as the moisture from hidden leaks softens building materials – the perfect place for pests to eat and burrow!

Foundational damage

The malicious moisture caused by hidden leaks quickly degrades the structural materials of your home. If you notice any peeling paint, rotten wood, or corroded metal, it’s time to call in the cavalry!

How water leak detectors help

Today’s technological advancements have made the latest military tech accessible to the average Aussie plumber. Choosing one who’s armed with electronic water leak detectors gives you access to:

  • Thermal imaging (infrared cameras)
  • Acoustic ground microphones
  • Moisture meters

Using thermal imaging, your plumber will identify heat signatures (or surface temperature changes) to search for cold spots caused by leaking water evaporating.

To supplement this and be sure, acoustic and sonar listening leak detectors will be used to listen for leaking water within solid surfaces.

Topping it off with moisture detection devices, even the most elusive leak won’t escape.

The best part? No digging needed!

Testimonials What our
Customers Say

I have given Kalamunda plumbing 5 stars but only because I couldn’t give them 6!Kalamunda Plumbing we’re absolutely fantastic! I had a burst pipe somewhere on my property (3000 sqm) leaking at 1L per second. I tried 4 different plumbing companies before coming across Kalamunda plumbing. The first company made me wait two days and then forgot my booking, the next one couldn’t help me for over a week and the last quoted me $1200 for the job and still had to wait three days. I called Kalamunda plumbing and they arrived the very next day. Anthony found the burst pipe within 20 minutes to the exact location, dug down and repaired the leak. The whole job only took 2 hours and was 1/3 of the price I was quoted.They were professional, helpful and friendly. I will now be a customer for life. I have shared my experience with all that I know in my area.I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you for everything! When the need arises I will be back!

We had a large amount of water bubbling up between the pavers down the side of our house. After a quick call around and a few dead ends I got hold of Kalamunda plumbing. They were able to have someone around quickly, dig down and repair the broken water line. Saving me a fortune in wasted water. Highly recommend and definitely will be using for any future plumbing work.
Trent and Barry from Kalamunda Plumbing did an excellent job. As well as fixing the problem in a timely manner, they gave me some good advice on a number of other potential plumbing issues
Roger Barnett
One thing that I really appreciate is a tradesman that arrives when they say they will, especially when you have taken time off work to have your hot water system replaced.Kalamunda Plumbing were on time and I can't believe how quickly the work was done, and at a reasonable price considering that they did an urgent repair for me. Everything was back to normal again so quickly, mess cleaned up and they adjusted the water temperature so that it was not hot enough to scold me.Well done to everyone involved at Kalamunda Plumbing, greatly appreciated.Regards Russell
