Leak Detection : Signs of water leaks and precautions

LDS Leak Detection Specialists Ltd  are experts in finding all water leaks.
 
You may have already noticed some signs of a water leak, for example the noise of water even when nothing is being used, a reduction in pressure at the cold kitchen tap, a patch of greener grass in your front lawn or a damp patch on tarmac. Apart from the obvious signs of leakage there are a few useful pointers:
  • Are you receiving high water bills?
  • Is there a loss of water pressure and flow rate?
  • Is there a discolouration in the supply water?
  • Are the tanks continually running in the loft?
  • Central heating: Is there a repeated loss of system pressure on a combi boiler?
       
Points to remember.
  1. Know where the isolation points are i.e. the stop taps internal and external.
  2. Check that its operational and accessible.
  3. Ensure that pipes are well insulated and isolated or drained down if no longer required.
  4. Lag all exposed pipework. Have your boiler routinely serviced.
  5. Have your cylinder, room and radiator thermostats set to reasonable temperatures.
  6. Check condensate pipes from your boiler if the pipe freezes your boiler may fail to operate.
  7.  
Unfortunately your water supplier is not responsible for water pipes on your property and cannot pinpoint the exact location of the leak. You will need to employ a qualified contractor to detect the leak for you (Also known as Leak Detection), this is the service which we supply at LDS Leak Detection Specialists Ltd.

"Had a mysterious leak somewhere on the ground floor of our house, seeing as we have a tiled kitchen diner and concrete floors to two other reception rooms, I was dreading employing a builder to dig up and investigate.

Leak found, builders now employed and only a small area of floor to come up. Thank you for your excellent service." Elaine (Date: 20.04.2012).

Leak Detection Noise Loggers

Noise Loggers are used for early detection of leaks in water supply networks.The longer it takes to identify that a network is leaking the more revenue is lost and the greater the loss of precious water resources. In addition to the more conventional methods of leak detection the installation of permanent noise loggers has proved to be a cost effective tool in early identification of water loss. By permanently monitoring sections of the system, which have previously been proven leak free, it will alert you when a potential leak does develop.

Using a network of Noise Loggers, digital Correlating Loggers (DCLs) Leak Detection Specialists can pinpoint the exact locations of any leaks in one overnight surveillance. LDS enginneers will plan the placement of the DCLs and analyze and review the overnight results.

Noise loggers are considerably more sensitive than the human ear and are usually active during the night, when background noise is at a minimum. Noise amplitude (or loudnes) will vary due to random effects, but there will always be a consistent minimum due to any noise that is always present ie leakage. Noise generated by a leak tends to have reasonably consistent amplitude.

The small devices are deployed at points around the water network, where we will monitor the noise levels on the pipes themselves. Changes and distinctive patterns in sound indicate the presence of leaks, often including ones that would otherwise go completely undetected. Data is collected from all DCLs pinpointing the map locations of any leak sounds present. The engineer will identify the recorded noise at different locations to determine the location of the leak.

Leak noise loggers help to reduce leakage levels and operating costs simultaneously by monitoring
 large areas of the water network quickly and effectively.The results will enable water suppliers to
reduce leakage cost effectively and to maintain these low levels at minimal cost.

LDS engineers have successfully used Noise Loggers at Holidays Parks, Aviation sites, Schools, Parks,  Prisons and many more commercial and industrial sites in the UK.

Central Heating Leaks

Central heating leaks could be the cause of your boiler loosing pressure on a sealed system, this could mean that you may have a hidden leak on your central heating pipework or underfloor heating pipework somewhere in your property.

With advanced modern technology, and state of the art equipment, Leak Detection Specialists engineers can locate your central heating leaks super-fast and accurately.

Central Heating Leaks: In a sealed central heating system, losing pressure on your boiler will be the first tell-tale sign of a possible leak on the central heating system. Constantly topping your system up will be diluting the important corrosion inhibitor in the system and in most modern heating systems can cause severe damage to the boiler itself, including the heat exchanger which can be very costly to replace ! This can eventually lead to failure of the boiler leaving you without heating and/or hot water. On an older system, the central heating filling and expansion tank in the loft (small tank) may be dripping or running 24hrs a day and may go unnoticed for some time until water damage becomes evident in the property, usually spreading throughout a large area making the exact leak location very difficult to identify. In a sealed system, mains water is pressurised usually between 1 and 1.5 Bar in the system, pipework and radiators, an additive is added to reduce corrosion. This is shown on the boiler or the pipework somewhere by means of a pressure gauge.


You may have called various plumbers to fix your central heating leaks but they have failed to find the leak. Here at Leak Detection Specialists, we use state of the art leak detection equipment including thermal infra-red cameras, acoustical testing moisture meters and tracer gas testing equipment amongst other methods all of which will help us identify the location of your central heating leaks quickly and effectively with the minimum disruption and damage to your property. At Leak Detection Specialists we also take pride in our 99% success rate due to our engineers using more than one method of detection to confirm and accurately identify your central heating leaks.
