Burst pipes & Leak Detection in Geelong

If you don’t have a mysterious geyser in your garden, water bubbling up through cracks in your concrete, or a patch of  soggy plaster that seems to be spreading as quickly as nits in grade 2, how do you know if you have a burst pipe?

Often, the first sign is a higher than normal water bill.

You can quickly and simply determine if you have a burst pipe by going out to your water meter and taking a reading.  Make sure you don’t use any water at all inside or out (including the toilet) for 1 – 2 hours, and then go back and take another meter reading.  If your water meter has moved at all, you have leak.

We have acoustic leak detection equipment for those hard to find leaks.  Avoid a geyser and give us a call on 5261 2422.
