The Benefits of Monitoring your Home

One of the most feared problems within a residential property is the occurrence of a water leak, which can range from a simple dripping tap to a leaking underground pipe. Undetected water leaks, especially those that are hidden within floors and ceilings can cause serious problems, not only financially but they can also affect your health. The presence of mould from leaking water can be responsible for many health conditions such as asthma and chest infections.

The problem that most people have is that they do not realise they have a problem until evidence begins to appear, such as puddles of water, damp walls or ceilings or, in the garden, boggy areas which may be as a result of leaking swimming pools or irrigation systems. So, what can you do to try and proactively protect your home from the dreaded water leak?

LeakDtech are specialists in all types of water leaks, from the simplest leaky pipe to complete water systems in properties of both a residential and commercial nature. They offer various levels of services to inspect your home and either identify any problems or provide you with peace of mind that all is as it should be. The services include:
A review of the drawings for the property and outside areas to quickly identify whether equipment such as pipe lines, accumulators and booster pumps are all correctly placed and connected, as per the drawings.
An infrared inspection and a wall dampness investigation is carried out by scanning the walls, floors and ceiling spaces inside the home which will pick up any areas that are being affected by damp or leaking water.
A utility water meter test is undertaken to ensure that the flow from the tank through the pipes is at the correct rate.
Your booster pump system and water tank functionality will be tested as these can be areas which are prone to leaks. The tank’s float ball valves will also be checked.
With regard to the exterior of the property, an inspection of any swimming pool, jacuzzi or water feature will be inspected and analysed from a functional perspective to ensure that there are no major problems which may not be visible, including a check of the main systems, pumps and pipe lines.
Irrigation systems can also be commonly known to leak due to the build up of dirt in the pipes so an inspection can be undertaken of the system from the pump all the way through the irrigation lines themselves.

In 80-90% of all inspections, any problems are usually identified within the first hour and are normally of a minor nature. However, for those more complex leaks, LeakDtech has the state-of-the-art equipment to identify and locate any leak within your home.
The benefits of an inspection may not only include cost savings to you as it will result in any leaks being identified allowing for repair, but you will also have peace of mind that your property and your family are safe. Why incur high water bills and costly rectification repairs when you can avoid such problems, simply and easily. In addition, as a proactive measure moving forward, LeakDtech can also install what is known as a detection monitoring system which documents the water use within the property and raises an alarm if the water levels alter, indicating that water may be leaking.
