At PCPS Ltd 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 leak detection technician is Gas Safety (previously CORGI) registered and has several years experience in installing and maintaining all types of plumbing systems. We can therefore offer a ‘find and fix’ service which means you will not need to book anyone else to fix any leaks found. We can also help you with other plumbing or gas work, as required.
Our hi-tech leak detection in Portsmouth 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.
