We find leaks so we can repair them quickly

Finding a water leak in a house, unit or apartment can be quite difficult. You might see water at one location but not realise it is travelling from somewhere else and flowing along pipes or surfaces to reach a lower point. That pathway can be damaged if it runs along the timber framework, under floor boards or even worse, under the concrete slab. 

Due to this complexity you have to engage a water leak detection specialist to make sure you are finding the cause and repairing the right area. If a leak isn’t corrected the right way you will just have the same problem a few weeks later as water builds up again. Sometimes it is important to inspect all the plumbing to make sure there are not any hidden surprises elsewhere.

Fix leaking plumbing

If your plumbing is leaking it could be at a single point or multiple points in your system. It might be at the joint between earthen pipes and PVC connections, or it may be where the main line connects the property or maybe right near the taps themselves.

Just imagine there is metres and metres of plumbing carrying water at high pressure through the walls and floors of your home. Small cracks, loose connections or worn seals can cause water to slowly leak. It might even be a drop a day, but over time that will build up and cause damage.

Find a leak under concrete

The hardest place to see water leaking is if it is under concrete. The solid material won’t display any visible signs normally unless you might see water at the join to a wall or maybe pooling nearby. Most modern homes or units are build with concrete slab foundations with the plumbing housed within the slab. 

Our equipment can detect changes in moisture to identify the location that water is leaking so we can accurate cut into the concrete to repair the leak.

Bathroom plumbing water leaks

The bathroom and laundry are wet areas that are a bit more complex to deal with. The waterproofing may have failed which leads to water leaking behind the wall or under the floor. This can cause damage to the structure of the room leading to expensive repairs, perhaps a complete renovation to fix the problem.

Mould, paint bubbling on the wall, water pooling, poor drainage or grout falling away can all be signs of bathroom plumbing water leaks that need to be found and repaired.

We have other tools that will locate a leak in walls between rooms, behind tiling or even in wet areas like a bathroom.

For each job we attend to our team brings a range of tools including our highly advanced locating equipment that can pinpoint the location of an issue. For the most extreme leaks a specific area might need to be excavated to fix the plumbing. Our team can quickly explain the underlying issue with a choice of repair options.

Some clients will choose to have a short term repair & then be prepared to have this done again in six or twelve months time when the issues re-occurs. In those situations we do offer regular maintenance options for monthly or quarterly checks. In other situations our team have plenty of experience doing plumbing dig ups & replacements.

Common questions

To fix a water leak might be something as simple as addressing a dripping or leaking tap. Although in some situations it could be something more serious that requires a leak detection process to be carried out to find the source of where the water is coming from. 

These types of water leaks could be in walls, under floors or even in the back yard with the source not obvious sometimes as the water moves or flows from the problem area and pools elsewhere. 

The most common leak is from a tap. This usually means that the tap washer needs renewing although it can also be caused by a damaged valve seating. The cause of the leak will also vary depending on the type of tap and mixer set up you have installed.

The cost of repairing a water leak can vary greatly based on what the cause of the leak is, the severity of the damage and the location of the repair required. Nu-Trend has all the latest equipment to detect water leaks in any part of a property.

If you leave a leak for too long it can create further damage than you can imagine, especially if it effects the property’s foundations or internal structures. Nu-Trend has all the latest equipment to detect and repair water leaks in any part of a property in Sydney quickly.

Leaks under a slab, basement floor or house footings are perhaps the most difficult to detect given they are concealed. Your first step is to see if your meter dial is moving (even slowly) even though no water is being used inside the property.
Finding a water leak under a concrete slab is one of the most difficult to fix because it is so well concealed. Once you engage a plumber it could take them a couple of hours to trouble shoot the cause of the leak as they work through a process of elimination on your site. Depending on the situation more work may be required, including tools to listen and pressure test your piping to expose the leak.

This really depends on where the main water line is located, then it would either be the Council or Property Owner’s responsibility.
