In complete contrast to traditionally labour intensive, disruptive and costly methods of large scale excavation, SOS Leak Detection provide a solution to finding hidden water leaks within domestic and commercial environments with the minimum of disruption.

Within any conceivable environment hidden leaks are notoriously difficult to locate and are too often accompanied by unnecessary inconvenience and damage to the building fabric. Utilising the latest specialist equipment and our technical expertise, SOS Leak Detection can rapidly and accurately detect and repair hidden leaks to save time, disruption and negate the risk of wasteful expenditure, whilst minimising ongoing damage from the water itself.

 “I recently used ‘Trace and Access services;’ through SOS.  We had a major problem with damp spreading throughout our house.  We had used numerous trade’s people to try and resolve the issue with no success.  Despite having a surveyor come in from our insurer, Trace and Access were the only people to correctly identify the problems (there were actually 3!): The water pressure was much too high coming in to the house which was contributing to leaks.  There was also a cracked drain that no one had identified.  The plumbing also needed upgrading.  We received a thorough report that satisfied our insurer and this even reduced our excess.  I would have no hesitation using them again, they gave us immediate peace of mind and a clear course of action.  They turned up on time and were highly professional, using extremely advanced detection equipment and techniques"
