Water leaks can be difficult to detect, and knowing you have a leak is only half the battle

If you have water leaking somewhere in your residence, the result can be extremely costly.

Often, you might not even realise you have a leak until you receive an unusually high water bill, hinting that something is wrong. Many of our clients are shocked when they receive a water bill far above average, and suddenly realise that there is a serious malfunction in their plumbing setup which needs to be addressed immediately in order to avoid costs spiralling out of control.

Water leaks can be difficult to detect, and even if you know that you have a leak somewhere, it is often tricky to nail down exactly where the leak is and how to fix it.

Common signs of a leak include:

  • A water bill which is higher than usual
  • Reduced water pressure
  • Damaged flooring or ceiling
  • Strange noises within your plumbing 

If you have tried to locate the leak yourself but been unsuccessful, you might need a specialist to come in and help.

That’s where professional water leak detection comes in.


The process of water leak detection involves using technology to identify precisely where a leak is coming from, expose the leak and then fix it.

At Find Leak Detection we use cutting-edge technology like our Global Leak Detection AR100 and Sewerin A200 to ensure that we can quickly and efficiently determine exactly where a problematic leak is occurring, and how best to fix it.

Our technology also lets us locate exactly where your pipes are located under the ground, meaning that we can find and expose leaks which might be in difficult-to-access areas such as underneath concrete or tree roots. 


Modern water leak detection technology makes it easy for a professional plumber to quickly identify and fix leaks, meaning that you can keep your water bill under control and ensure that your leak does not continue to worsen.

If left unchecked, even a small leak can easily turn into a major one and spiral out of control, resulting in thousands of dollars worth of damage to your property. Hiring a professional leak detector helps you avoid this, by allowing you to nip the problem in the bud before it worsens.

It’s also worth noting that most insurance companies will not cover costs related to escaping liquids if it has been caused by a lack of maintenance, failed waterproofing, or illegal/non-compliant workmanship or materials. This means that to avoid excessive expense, you should prioritise detecting any leaks which you suspect may exist on your property.

Our cutting-edge water leak detection technology ensures that we get the job right the first time round, and we pride ourselves on being transparent with all our clients and never charging hidden fees.
