Expert Plumbing Leak Detection Services

The damaging floods in Australia over recent years have made more homeowners conscious of how water damage from big events might affect their property.

How many of us, though, consider the effects of leak sources that are perhaps already in the home? Whether it’s a shower leak or a burst pipe under the sink or between the walls, they are often less obvious, but once they are detected it can often be too late to minimise the damage. 

Upside Down provides expert leak detection services that can repair leaks and even identify sources of potential leaks to fix them before they become bigger problems in the future.

We use top of the line moisture meters and water leak detection tools on all jobs. These deliver highly accurate and precise readings which in turn enable us to provide you with the highest standards of service.

Leak Detection and Testing FAQ

Do you have any questions about water leak detection and testing? We’ve got the answers you’re looking for.

A few signs to look for if you suspect you have a hidden leak are:
  • Water pooling on the floor
  • Areas of the yard that are discoloured
  • High water bills
  • Sudden potholes
  • Sinking areas in the yard

Plumbers use several methods for detecting leaks.
  • Sound (acoustic leak detection)
  • Heat scanner device (scanners show where water is escaping by the change in temperature)
  • Video inspection (using a miniature camera mounted on a long fiber-optic cable).

The cost varies depending on the location of the problem and the type of water leak. Leak detection costs range from $100 to more than $500. But it’s always important to detect and fix a water leak quickly to reduce your water bill. When you contact a plumbing expert from Upside Down, we charge the same rates 24/7, every day of the year, including public holidays.

Any number of problems can cause a water leak, but here are the main culprits:
  • Broken seals
  • Lines clogged
  • Corroded lines
  • Excessive water pressure
  • Damaged pipe joints
  • Tree roots
  • Rapid change in temperature
  • Loose connectors.
