Leak Detection Services from Rainbow International

If you find a pool of water in your property – or any other signs of a leak – you have no time to waste. You need to act promptly to pinpoint the exact source and repair the issue before matters get worse.

The problem is that this is easier said than done. And that’s where our trace and access and ​​water leak detection services come in…

How Rainbow International detects the source of a leak

We understand just how stressful water leaks can be. That’s why we provide our experts with the training and specialist equipment they need to quickly and efficiently carry out four key methods of water leak detection.

Thermal imaging

Thermal imaging is a popular (and non-invasive) method of leak detection. It involves using specialist cameras to identify temperature differences in your pipes. This allows our team to detect any pipes that are buried in subfloors or other hidden areas within your property.

Acoustic testing

Acoustic testing is another simple, effective and accurate method of water leak detection. It requires professional acoustic and electro-acoustic listening devices that enable our specialist team to amplify, filter and process the sound of a buried or insulated leaking pipe.

Tracer gas

This more involved method requires our team to drain any remaining water from your system before tracer gas is introduced into the pipes. Don’t be put off by the word ‘gas’ – we use a mix of 95% nitrogen and 5% hydrogen that’s 100% safe to use in your property.

Pipe tracing

The final method involves the use of high-frequency water leak detectors to trace any hidden or buried pipes that can’t be detected with thermal imaging cameras. This process enables our team to accurately identify the exact location of a leak before the situation worsens.

Restoring your property following a leak

Finding the leak is just the first step in fixing the problem. Once we’ve pinpointed the location, our fully trained and insured team will excavate the area to expose the source.

We’ll then issue a bespoke SMART report of our findings and recommended next steps. Repairs can be carried out by us at an additional cost or by your preferred plumber – whatever works best for you.

Our full remediation programme will restore your property back to its original condition with little-to-no disruption to the living or working environment. We’ll even give your entire water systems a once-over for full peace of mind.
