How To Find A Water Leak
Uncategorized 22nd Jun

Unlike the image above, when you suspect you have a water leak, you can find yourself looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack. Where do we start, how do we do this, this could cost a lot of money, are we insured for this? All of these are regular questions.

The first thing to do is to analyse the problem, ask yourself basic questions such as; is this an external supply pipe leak, is this a central heating leak, is this an intermittent leak, is it weather related, is this water leaking from my property or my neighbours property. When you have some answers ask yourself if its possible to isolate various parts of your pipework? If you can isolate sections of pipework you can quickly start to narrow the area under investigation. If the water leak is intermittent in nature then you could suspect a waste pipe leak as these pipes aren’t under constant pressure. Stop using bathrooms or kitchens for a few days and see if this has a bearing on the severity of the problem, it may stop completely. When you have these answers you are in a better position to logically think through the next steps.
