Finding Leaks & Tracing Pipes

At JD Moling – External Moling Services Surrey, our engineers are fully trained and experienced in using an array of various types of leak detection equipment and listening devices to pinpoint leaks and locate water supply pipes quickly and efficiently.

Our find and fix service can locate burst water pipes, isolate the problem and repair the leak with the minimum amount of fuss.

Even when water rises to the surface, it does not necessarily mean the leak is located at this point, as water tends to find the easiest route of escape.

The tell tale signs of leaking pipes?

  1. Have you noticed a particularly lush patch of green in your garden?
  2. Have the noises your household plumbing makes when the heating or water is on changed?
  3. Have you experienced a dramatic drop in water pressure?

If you have experienced any of the above, there is a good chance you have a leaking pipe and need someone to trace it. Don’t worry! JD Moling will use the very latest of listening devices to follow the sound of the water in the pipes and trace the path of your water pipes. We can even tell the difference between water in a plastic pipe from one in an older metal base pipe.

No Dig Solutions

Using the latest in listening devices our specialist service engineers try to avoid the need for excavating long lengths of pipe by listening for the source of the leak. The water pressure in the pipe before the hole will be higher than the pressure in the pipe after the leak, so the engineer is able to trace the length of pipe and listen for the change in tone identifying the area of ruptured pipe.

Your Responsibility? 

The underground pipe from the boundary of the property to your house is your responsibility as a rule of thumb, if the pipe is beyond your property deeds then it is the water companies responsibility to repair.

Ground Microphones

Ground microphones allow us to amplify, trace and display the noise created by a water escaping from a pipe. We also use ground microphones to trace the line of a pipe. This is done by inducing a sound wave along the pipe which can be measured at ground level thus allowing us to follow and plot its route.

How Do I Know I Have A Leak?

If your property is fitted with an external water meter there is a simple test you can do to check for leaks. Ensure that all appliances and taps are turned off and then monitor the meter.

No dials should move and if they do there may be a leak on the system.

If you assume a leak - If a leak on the water supply pipe is suspected and you are the property owner it is your responsibility to have it repaired or replaced promptly.

Please contact us as soon as you can to avoid water damage to your property.

Causes For Low Pressure?

Leaks - If water is leaking from your system your pressure will drop.
Shared supply pipes - you may experience low pressure during peak periods. An independent supply is highly recommended.
Supply pipe size - a smaller internal diameter will limit the flow rate to the property.
Pipe Corrosion - restricts water flow and can lead to leaks
Heating systems and showers - Many new showers and combination boilers will need a minimum level of flow to work effectively
