LEAKING AND BURST PIPES
At Aquatek Plumbing & Gas, we specialise in the detection and repair of leaking and burst water pipes both inside and outside your home.
Leaking underground pipes are very often caused by tree roots that invade the pipework and which, as they expand, cause cracks and leaks to appear. If you notice that water is unexpectedly pooling in your garden or other outdoor areas, this is a good indication that you likely have cracked and leaking pipes.
For interior pipework, there are likewise signs that you can look out for and which will indicate that you have a leaking pipe:
- Ceilings, walls and floors become discoloured or damp
- A strong musty or damp smell around drains and appliances
- A significant drop in water pressure
Leaking pipes are a not only a problem in themselves, in that they increase your water consumption and can damage fittings, appliances and the structural integrity of your home, but a leaking pipe can quickly become a burst pipe, when the potential for serious problems becomes magnified.
You can rely on Aquatek Plumbing & Gas to detect, locate and isolate leaks wherever in your pipework they occur, and to repair or replace them so that your water and drainage systems are again working at optimum capacity. This minimises the damage that can be caused in the short term, and reduces the risk of larger problems developing in the future.
We utilise a range of technologies to detect leaks in your pipework, through which are able to ascertain precisely where they occur and then to decide on an appropriate repair or replacement strategy. Through acting promptly to tackle suspected leaks or damaged pipes, we can help you to mitigate the risk of more extensive and damaging problems occurring later.
