These are indications of a leak in the property. Let the experts handle it for you.

Ryan Old Plumbing offers Leak Detection Tests to determine the causes of the leak in a property. We will not only find the cause, we will also provide the solution and offer recommendations on how to resolve the problem.

Ryan Old Plumbing guarantees a well-done job with the following standards:

  • State of the art equipment – We are proud to let you know that we have adopted the new technology for Leak Detection; the Acoustic Leak Detector. With this, we can find leaks under concrete or pavers.
  • Comprehensive Testing – We still use traditional tests such as Hydrostatic Pressure Testing, Flood Test, Static Testing of waste line, and visual inspections of taps and spindles. These tests have proven their reliability through time and 9 out of 10 instances, we are able to identify the cause of the leak by thoroughly going through these tests.
  • Highly-experienced plumbers – Technology and tests will not work without professionals conducting them. At Ryan Old Plumbing, all the plumbers who conduct Leak Detection tests are fully licenced and have more than enough experience in carrying out leak detection tests and handling the Acoustic Leak Detector. Moreover, should you decide to have the leak fixed after the test, you can be sure that our plumbers can do it with both efficiency and quality.

It does not matter if the leak is outside your home or in your bathroom. There is no doubt that we can find the leak for you by combining high-tech equipment with greatly experienced plumbers and comprehensive tests.

Leaks outside the house

Older methods of finding the leaks include randomly digging into your lawn/garden or cutting into concrete nonspecifically or removing several pavers just to visualize the leak. These are tedious and unnecessary work that can now be avoided. With today’s advancement in technology and the availability of Acoustic Leak Detectors, there no need to dig unmethodically. No need to destroy your perfectly manicured lawn or beautifully patterned driveway just to find a leak!

Ryan Old Plumbing will efficiently find the leak for you to save both your time and money.

Leak inside the house:

Leaks inside the house are always pesky. Leaks can cause damage to plasterboards and vanity unit. At a larger scale, it can even cause the whole house to shift/move. We have seen a house with cracks in concrete walls due to concealed leaks in pipes. Leaks inside the property should be attended to as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary and costly repairs.

At Ryan Old plumbing, we carry out a series of test to be able to identify the cause of the leak in a property:

Hydrostatic Pressure test – This test is conducted to see if the water line will hold pressure. A drop in pressure at a specified time confirms a leak.

Static test – This is performed with fluorescein dye mixed with water to trace leaks through waste lines. The waste line is plugged off the shower tray and is filled with coloured water to test the condition of the waterproofing.

Flood test – This is a very simple test but is highly effective. The tiles and screens are flooded with water and if water shows in the affected area, then it will confirm a leak.

Visual inspection – This is one of the most important aspects of determining a leak. A meticulous inspection of the taps, spindles, pipes toilet cisterns and other fixtures inside the home is vital in identifying the area of concern. Our plumbers have years of experience working out plumbing fixtures and would definitely provide an insight of what is going on.  

It is our aim to provide extra value for our service and expertise. Therefore, after completing the inspection at your property, a detailed report with photos taken during the tests will be generated. This will include our conclusion and recommendation to resolve the leak that has been detected.

If you suspect a leak at your property, do not hesitate to give us a call at 0421185947and have one of our Leak Detection Experts find the leak.
