Leak Detection Equipment
As we highlighted above, there is a lot of leak detection equipment that a professional leak detection engineer will carry with them to find a water leak. On thing that people frequently ask about is – how can you find water leaks in hidden places?…
One of the tools used are professional moisture meters – naturally, when you have a leak (like from a combi boiler system), moisture will be present so these highly specialist devices can help you search and find moisture, even in hidden places. They can help to find water leaks in floors, walls and ceilings, even if you cannot see a leak or moisture, we can find the evidence to help locate it. So if you spot a damp patch on ceilings in your home or others signs of water damaged ceilings, get in touch and we can help you, including for a central heating leak.

Is there a device to detect water leaks?
Yes definitely there are devices to detect water leaks, there are in fact many and they can compliment each other well. Devices to detect water leaks tend to fall into two categories, ones which alert you to a water leak (like a smart water leak alarm) and those that act as water leak detectors – these include moisture meters, acoustic listening devices, thermal imaging cameras, pipe trackers, tracer gas and more. All of these, working together with a trained, experienced leak detection expert can help to maximise any water leaks in your home or business.
How does a water leak detector work?
Water leak detectors work by spotting the tell-tale signs of a water leak, many of which may be not spotted with the human eye (or ear!). They all work in different ways depending on the device but here are a few examples. Moisture meters detect signs of moisture and damp. Thermal cameras look out for hot or cold water signs on surfaces. Acoustic leak detectors listen out for the sound of a water leak (dripping or sprays for example) and tracer gas seeks out pinhole leaks in pipework. Each type of water leak detector has it’s own use and specialism and they work together to help find water leaks in even hidden locations.
Is there a device to detect a water leak underground?
Yes, absolutely. There are a number of water leak detection equipment to find underground water leaks. For example, a thermal imaging camera can spot heat signals in (or under) floors close to water leaks. Acoustic leak detection equipment uses highly sensitive microphones to listen to even very small sounds that a water leak makes. These can work together fore example with things like pipe tracking equipment and tracer gas leak detection equipment to locate exactly where underground leaks are.
