HWS Leak Detection and Pipe Tracing Services

We use specialist leak detection equipment and listening devices to pinpoint leaks and locate underground pipes and services so that the necessary repairs can be carried out.

Locating underground leaks without excavation

Finding the source of a leak is often not as straightforward as you may think. Even when water is pooling on the ground, it doesn’t always mean that the leak is located in this area as water can flow underground for some distance before surfacing.

We use the latest equipment to detect underground pipes and services, trace their routes and then using specialist listening devices we can often pinpoint a leak within a very small radius minimizing the excavation required & associated disruption.

Unfortunately leaks from plastic pipes and deeply buried pipes are quieter and harder to detect, so in some cases it is necessary to excavate in order to pinpoint the leak, but we always try to avoid this if possible.

    I can't thank Shane enough.  It was gone 9pm when I spoke to him and within an hour Shane and his colleague were here and digging around the broken mains pipe in the back garden. They worked till almost midnight fixing the leak in the most awkward of places and in the dark.  They didn't even stop to have a coffee.  Thanks to both of you.

    Just like to say a big thank you for upgrading our lead water service.  The mole was amazing to watch in action.  Also thank you for putting our garden back as you found it.  Great job!

    I'm amazed at how quickly and tidily Shane managed to complete his work. He replaced our old water service when we discovered it was lead and he managed to do it all without digging up our new driveway!
