Our leak detection service is non-invasive meaning minimal damage to your property, i.e. no drilling, excavations, dirt and disruption. We provide a detailed written leak detection report with photographs, appropriate for an insurance claim, within 48 hours of our visit.
In most cases the cost of our service is recoverable from your building insurance as part of ‘trace and access’ cover.
Our technicians are qualified plumbers, experienced in installing and maintaining all types of plumbing systems. We can therefore offer a same day ‘find and fix’ service, including removing floor finishes and excavation of concrete floors to expose leaks.
Once the leak has been found and fixed our team of water damage specialists can follow up with a damage assessment, creating a detailed schedule of works and cost estimate for any drying and remedial work requires as part of a building insurance claim. In short, we are a one stop solution for all your water leak and water damage problems.
Our hi-tech leak detection in Essex includes:
- Thermal imaging to map hot and central heating pipes under floors and in walls.
- Acoustic microphones which can hear water movement and leaks on buried pipes.
- Endoscopic cameras which can see into hidden and small spaces.
- Protimeter moisture meter to map damp.
- Consumption tests which measure any ‘unknown’ water usage when all taps and other outlets are turned off.
- Pressure testing to identify leaking pipes.
- Gas tracing of hot, cold and central heating pipes using an inert hydrogen/nitrogen gas which can pass through most materials including timber, concrete and tiles.
- Wet and/or air testing of drains and waste pipework.
- UV and Coloured Dye Testing locates waste, drain, silicone sealant and grout leaks.
- CAT & Genny locates and maps hidden pipes.

As part of our investment and our continual development in our leak detection services we have highly professional and dedicated team members to visit you quickly in:
- It is not possible to predict how long it will take PCPS to find any leak(s)
- We will attempt to find all leak(s) within the client brief given to us, but no guarantee is possible.
- It is the client’s responsibility to continue to monitor the situation after we have left site and call us back as necessary to investigate any on-going leak(s).
- If undetected leaks cause any damage, we accept no responsibility for such damage.
- We are not responsible for leaks in areas not included in the client brief.
- We will only undertake invasive procedures if given clear instruction by client.
- Repairs to old, poor quality and/or damaged pipe work should be seen as temporary, & may fail within a short time. If we do need to attend again because of a failed temporary repair, this will be chargeable.
- On some occasions, when leaking pipes are exposed they are in close contact and/or can be difficult to access. In these circumstances there is a risk of collateral damage during repair. We accept no responsibility for such collateral damage should it occur, and any necessary additional repairs will be chargeable.
