Detection and repair

Burst or leaking water pipes

Burst pipes and water leaks can be pesky little problems. In fact, they can be pesky big problems too.

You see, not all burst or leaking pipes are readily visible or easy to detect. Plus, leaking and bursting problems can occur in many different locations including under concrete floors, set into walls behind the plaster or wall tiles, in ceilings, or underground outside buildings including patios, paths, driveways, and more.

The point is, they’re very seldom obvious to the eye and, left unresolved, burst or leaking pipes can cause untold damage and result in a major repair or replacement expense. They also have the potential to run up thousands of dollars in water bills.

Tracking your water usage

Find out how to easily track your water use by conducting a meter test or regularly reading your meter. You can monitor or check your water use levels by reading your water meter and recording the amounts. This can help you confirm a bill, or identify whether you have a water leak.

Step 1 Read the black numbers from left to right – the black numbers represent kilolitres (1000 litres) and the red numbers represent litres. Water Corp charge per kilolitre.
Step 2 Read your meter at approximately the same time each day (note both the black and red numbers).
Step 3 Calculate your water use by subtracting the previous meter reading from the current reading.
Step 4 Compare your daily water use and note water use activities.

The tools of electronic leak detection

Thermal imaging involves the use of infrared cameras to measure and identify changes in the surface temperature of a certain area. In short, it uses the latest military technology to identify heat signatures. To support such a conclusion, we also employ sonar listening devices and acoustic leak detectors to hear the escape of water under or behind solid surfaces as well as years of experience to help make the right conclusion.

Our state-of-the-art leak detection equipment includes:

  • Metallic pipe locators
