Leak Detection Pricing
Unfortunately, we are unable to give a fixed price on a leak detection job. As we cannot see the leak we cannot give a time frame on how long it will take to find, each job will be different.
Pricing will be at our standard rates as well as a one-off charge of $80 for the hire-age cost for the use leak detection machine.
So how does it work?
Leaks have different frequencies made by the type of leak whether coming from pipes that are under greater pressure or from pipes that are under lower pressure and from the contents of these pipes. These leaks transmit a frequency that is picked up by the electronic leak detector and is applied while being transmitted through the machine. The amplified sounds
that the leak is making is picked up by a us and the machine who is then able to pinpoint the
location of the leak found.
Once our trained technicians at Plumb Bros. identify and locate the burst pipe we not only repair the burst but will also advise on future replacement of hot and cold lines dependent on the condition of the copper. Copper over the years deteriorates in soil and therefore simply fixing a burst pipe will not always solve the issue for good. Water and copper work in a way together that water pressure will always put strain on the next weakest point of the copper line, so once a burst is repaired another point of copper will be under strain and no doubt burst over time.
At Plumb Bros. we will quote on Poly Plastic Pipe renewals and hot pipe lagging under-ground. This will fully solve any corrosion issues on your water line. These types of jobs will always be quoted from site dependent on the size and ran of water line PLUS the condition of the line.
