Commercial Property Leak Detection

Leak Detection in Commercial Properties

Commercial property leak detection and repair is often accompanied by a different set of priorities than its domestic alternative. Costs associated with metered water loss can be significant but can pale into insignificance when set against costs of business interruption or reputational damage, especially if the water leak is impacting upon 3rd parties within the commercial property.

General plumbers and maintenance teams, despite their efforts, are often not geared up for commercial leak detection work and as a result, can be inefficient with important detection time. In our experience, very few organisations know or fully understand the water supply network within their commercial property. As a result, our first task is often to trace the pipes.

Utility tracking, pipe location and leak detection go hand in hand. The patient application of technology, equipment and skilled operators is essential to ensure accurate analysis of the water-related problem and confirmed leak identification. As a leak detection specialist, the last thing we want to do is start digging holes in the wrong place, efficient detection is key. We have a full civils capability and diggers if required.
