Common questions about leak detection.

A water leak could be something as simple as 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. 


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 quickly;

  • House, unit, apartment or townhouse.

  • Residential, commercial, industrial or rental properties.

  • Same day high pressure water jet blasting available.

  • Same day inspection and dig up available.

  • Burst pipe location and CCTV digital camera inspections.

How do I know if a main water line is leaking?

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.

How do you find a water leak under concrete?

This is a large scale job and depending on the situation may only require a small about of concrete cutting to get to the problem. In other cases large areas by need to be cut to reach the cause of the issue. 

Before anything can be done though we use our equipment to try and identify the issue then present the choices available to have it rectified.
