When a pressurised water pipe leaks the water flows out which causes the pipe and surrounding material (mud, concrete tarmac) to vibrate. This sound, or vibration, is transmitted along the pipe and through the surrounding material (ground-borne water leak noise) which we pick up with our equipment.


Thermal imaging cameras are a very useful instrument in the water leak detectors’ tool box, and it offers a quick, non-intrusive method to locate water leaks and trace the route of hot water pipes. Thermal Imaging Cameras can also be used for HVAC, Electrical, Mechanical and Building Thermal Surveys.


To accurately locate water pipes trace cables and to avoid damage to utilities and operators during excavations, it is essential to know the precise position of all utility services. Often the exact position of pipes and cables is unknown due to inaccurate or non-existent network plans.


If a water pipe is not under pressure or the noise from the leak cannot easily be heard then Tracer gas can be a very useful technique to locate water leaks in: Customer Supply Pipes, Underfloor Heating Systems, Boilers, Central Heating Systems, Mains Distribution Networks.

Seamus HegartyProfessionalism, Punctuality, Quality

“When I found out I had a leak under my kitchen floor I thought all the tiles and the concrete would have had to be dug up to try and find it. So I was delighted when my plumber told me about Leak Detectors. I rang to make an appointment and within a day or two Leo came out to find the leak. After a short space of time he detected the leak using listening equipment. Only half of one tile was removed and a hole about 12 inches by 8 inches was dug up with very little mess being made. After his visit Leo sent me a report of what he had done and what he had found, along with photos of the hole and the leak which I was then able to forward on to my insurance company. Since then I have recommended Leak Detectors to a friend and also to my own plumber.”

Pamela Ballantine – UTV Presenter

For many years now we have used the services of Leak Detector. That type of work necessitates a rapid response and I have always found the Leak Detector staff to fast and efficient. With the leak detection task complete, the reports they prepare (with photographs) are most beneficial for the public, insurance companies, Loss Adjusters etc… I would definitely recommend Leak Detector to anyone

Brian Clendinning – Director

“FM Environmental was delighted with the swift response provided by Leak Detector and the efficient detection of a leak in one of our heating water pipes. This quick and accurate detection enabled us to minimise water damage in our premises and effect a repair as soon as possible. I would happily recommend Leak Detector especially for its non-invasive style of leak detection.”

Kevin Fitzpatrick – MD

I would highly recommend Leak Detector. I had many plumbers and other Leak Detectors People hired before I found this company and neither could find the source of the leak which caused me great worry.
I am pleased to say that once I hired Leak Detector, they were on the job straight away and managed to find the source of the leak on the 2nd Visit. So, I highly recommend these guys. Very professional service and very responsive. A Special thank you to Mark & Leo for sorting this out for me.
