“What’s the worst leak you’ve ever seen?” If we had a dollar for every time we’ve heard that question… we’d still be plumbers, but at least all of our mortgages would be paid off.

If this is your first time dealing with a concealed water leak, you might not even know what signs to look for. Spotting a water leak can be tricky, but there are usually a few signs that can tip you off, such as:
The water bill has unexpectedly increased
If you did not recently buy a new appliance, such as a washing machine or refrigerator, then your water bill should not dramatically rise.
Water is puddling up in unusual places
You might notice minor puddles at the base of your kitchen island or in your laundry cabinets. You may even notice seemingly random puddles around your site — look up and notice they’re beneath downlights.
There are signs of mould and water damage around the house
This could be mould spots on the wall, or the slight discolouration and softening of wood in a particular area. You may even notice a dank scent. Mould can be extremely difficult to deal with, so it’s best to contact a leak detection specialist as soon as you suspect a mould problem.
Your irrigation system is leaking
Irrigation leaks can be trickier to detect since they can evaporate quite quickly outdoors. However, you may notice small puddles or consistently moist soil around your lawn.
Residential and commercial gas is mixed with a foul-smelling chemical, so it’s easy for you to immediately identify a leak. However, there are other signs you should be alert for:
If you suspect a gas leak, turn off the gas from the mains and get everyone out of the building. Call our gas leak detection team immediately, and do not attempt to fix the leak on your own.
