What is Leak Detection?
Leak detection performed by Pro Plumbers Cape Town technicians refers to various non-intrusive methods of finding plumbing leaks with the use of specialised water leak detection devices.
What Causes Water Leaks?
There are various reasons for water leaks to pop up out of nowhere. Worn plumbing pipes, striking a pipe during building renovations, tree roots entering your plumbing system etc. But, the usual culprits are toilets and taps.
Toilet leaks are complicated. A leak that might seem minor can waste many litres of water. To check if you have a toilet leak, put some blue food colouring in the water tank and wait 20 minutes. If the water inside your toilet turns blue, it means your toilet is leaking.
Often, leaking taps are caused by worn-out washers but there could be other reasons too. If your rubber washer looks fine, it’s best to call professional leak detection services to schedule an inspection.
More places to look for water leaks:
- Showerheads – If your tap is shut tightly but water is still dripping, you might have a leak.
- Appliances: Worn-out valves might cause these machines to leak.
- Concrete: Sometimes cracking concrete could mean water pushing up.
These seemingly minor leaks could turn into something serious if ignored.
Signs I Might Need Leak Detection Services
A water leak in your home can be frustrating and expensive. They can cause significant water damage and surprisingly high water bills. But, don’t worry, Pro Plumber Cape Town’s licensed plumbers are experts at finding and fixing water leaks. Here are some signs to look out for
Very High Water Bills
One of the most common reasons for customers to request leak detection services is due to unusually high water bills. If you haven’t changed your water usage, a spike in water costs could mean you have a leak.
You Hear Water Running
If you can hear running water even when taps are closed, you probably have a leak. The same goes for low water pressure or if no water comes out even though you hear water in the pipes.
The Floor Feels Hot or Warm
If your floor feels warm or hot in a specific section, you might have an underfloor hot water leak. If your pet has suddenly found a new favourite spot to take a nap, check to see if this area is warm.
Smells and Wet Spots
Puddles, wet spots or a mouldy smell inside your home could indicate a water leak as well. Make sure you check it out asap.

How Does a Plumber Detect Water Leaks?
Thermal imaging, CCTV camera inspections and digital acoustic devices all offer great results in finding plumbing leaks.
The plumber typically pumps a tracer gas into the plumbing system. When the gas reaches the leak location, it causes the gas to bubble or fizz. The plumber will then follow the sound and locate the leak through the process of elimination.
You and your leak detection technician can decide on the best course of action once the leak has been found. Pro Plumbers Cape Town specialises in water leak detection and repairs. Call us today!
