Frequently Asked Questions

What are the common signs of a bathroom leak?

Common signs of a bathroom leak include water stains or discolouration on walls or ceilings in or near the bathroom, damp or musty odours, peeling paint or wallpaper, warped or stained flooring and a sudden increase in water bills. In the case of a shower leak, you might notice water pooling on the bathroom floor or wet spots around the shower area.

What equipment is used for bathroom leak detection?

Shower leak detection typically uses various tools and equipment to identify and locate leaks. These may include moisture metres, thermal imaging cameras, acoustic leak detectors and even specialised plumbing inspection cameras. These tools help professionals pinpoint the source of the leak accurately.

How long does a bathroom water leak detection take?

The duration of a bathroom water leak detection process can vary depending on the complexity of the issue and the extent of the leak. In simple cases, it may take an hour or two to complete the detection process. However, if the leak is difficult to locate or if extensive repairs are required, it might take longer.

Will the detection process cause damage to my bathroom?

Bathroom leak detection specialists are trained to minimise any potential damage during the detection process. We employ non-invasive techniques whenever possible, such as using thermal imaging or moisture metres. However, in certain cases, accessing hidden pipes or fixtures might require minor, localised damage, which can typically be repaired once the leak is identified and repaired.

Can I fix the leak myself?

We recommend always contacting a bathroom leak detection specialist, like Find Leak Detection to locate and repair a water leak. We have the expertise and proper tools to address the problem effectively and prevent further damage.

What should you do if you suspect you have a leak?

If you suspect you do have a significant leak in your home or business, it’s important to take prompt action to prevent further damage. First, turn off the water supply to the affected area, if possible. Then, contact a reputable bathroom leak detection specialist, such as Find Leak Detection, to assess the situation and locate the leak, as well as provide recommendations for necessary repairs. It’s crucial not to delay repairs as leaks can worsen over time and cause extensive damage.

What happens if I ignore a bathroom leak?

Ignoring a shower leak can lead to several negative consequences. Over time, the leak can cause structural damage to your bathroom, such as rotting wood, weakened walls or compromised flooring. It may also contribute to mould and mildew growth, which can pose health risks to occupants. Additionally, ignoring a leak can result in increased water bills and potentially more expensive repairs down the line such as shower rebuild.
