Local Water Leak Detection Specialists in Newton Abbot TQ12

Newton Abbot Water Leak Detection

SOS Leak Detection Ltd have an average of twenty years of practical knowledge and, our specialist engineers possess an inherent understanding of water leak detection in Newton Abbot TQ12.

Describing water leak detection in Newton Abbot TQ12 as a quest for an elusive needle in a haystack is a fitting analogy. While many in this field might begin by sifting through the haystack, genuine progress materialises when the right equipment, expertise and experience enhance the pursuit.

What are the Signs of a Water Leak in Newton Abbot?

Despite the common misconception that Newton Abbot water leaks are conspicuous and easily noticeable, this is not always true, especially for minor leaks.

Here are several prominent clues that may suggest the presence of a water main leak in Newton Abbot TQ12:

High Water Bills

  • An unanticipated, substantial surge in their water bill could be due to a water leak.
  • A sudden increase in water consumption could be due to a possible leak.
  • Keep an eye on your water meter- if it's increasing during periods of non-use, there could be an unseen water leak.

Discoloured Water

  • Discolouration from the tap can be a sign of a leak in the main supply pipe.
  • Let the tap run for a few minutes.
  • If there is persistent discolouration, it's likely due to a water leak.
  • The discolouration is caused by mixing water with the surrounding soil.

Reduced Water Pressure

  • If you've noticed less water runs from your tap, this can be a sign of a leak in your main water supply pipe.
  • Leak inference: Similar to how a kinked hosepipe restricts water flow, reduced water volume and a noticeable pressure drop from your taps suggest a possible leak in the main water supply.

Surface Water Accumulation

  • Not all puddles indicate a leak, as they could be formed due to heavy rain. Puddles that stubbornly stick around, especially if it hasn't rained, could signal a leak in your main water supply pipe.

How Can I Find a Water Leak in my Newton Abbot Property?

Think you've got a water leak in your home or business?

Here are some quick, non-invasive actions to test for yourself whether or not you have a water leak in Newton Abbot:

Checks for a Newton Abbot Water Leak in Your Property:

Visual and Auditory Clues of a Water Leak in Newton Abbot:

  • Look for wet patches: Inspect floors, walls, and ceilings for any dampness, discolouration, or peeling. Pay close attention to areas around plumbing fixtures like sinks, toilets, showers, and washing machines. Check under cabinets and behind appliances for moisture accumulation.
  • Listen for dripping or trickling sounds: These can indicate a slow leak somewhere in your plumbing system. Be especially attentive when everything is quiet at night.
  • Smell for musty odours: A persistent musty smell can be a sign of mould or mildew growth, often triggered by hidden leaks.

Water Meter Test:

  • Locate your water meter: This is usually found outside your home near the curb or in a basement or utility room where the main water supply line enters.
  • Note the meter reading: Write down the numbers on the meter dials when all water usage is stopped (e.g., at night when everyone is asleep).
  • Wait for a couple of hours: Don't use any water during this time.
  • Check the meter again: If the numbers have changed, even slightly, it could indicate a leak somewhere in your plumbing system.

Additional Checks for a Water Leak in Newton Abbot:

  • Check your water bill: A sudden increase in your water bill without any explanation could be a sign of a leak.
  • Look for puddles or dampness outdoors: This could indicate a leak in your buried water line leading to your house.
  • Feel for hot spots: Pipes carrying hot water may feel warm to the touch if there's a leak behind them.

If You Suspect You Have a Newton Abbot Water Leak in Your Property:

  • Turn off the main water supply valve: This will stop the flow of water and prevent further damage.
  • Call SOS Leak Detection Ltd: We have the non-invasive methods, tools and expertise to ensure that we locate and adeptly fix your Newton Abbot water leak.

Remember: Not all leaks are obvious. Even small leaks can waste water and cause damage over time.

If you suspect you have a water leak in your property, the faster you act upon calling specialists like SOS Leak Detection Ltd the less damage the leak will do over time.

Who is Responsible for a Water Mains Leak in Newton Abbot?

Should a leak arise beyond your property limits, the water company assumes responsibility. Conversely, if the Newton Abbot leak develops within your property boundaries, regrettably, you bear the responsibility for the cost of resolving the issue.

What is a Water Mains Supply Pipe?

The water mains supply pipe is the dedicated pipeline that conveys your water supply from the water mains company's distribution network into your premises. Typically, this supply pipe and the associated responsibilities extend from your property's perimeter to the initial water connection point or internal shut-off valve.
