Leak Detection and Diagnosis
Most of the jobs a plumber attends is for water leak detection. The first step of our disgnostics will trace the source of the leak.
From here, we will first ensure that there is no further water leaking. This could have been caused by a leaking pipe due to a crack or loose connector.
Once the area is prevented from any further water damage, we can then deal with the route of the problem.
Often this will be a pipe needing replaced or capped off properly. Sometimes a cistern can overflow due to problems with the valve.
Whatever the problem is, you can rest assured that you are being dealt with by the professional plumbers in East Kilbride.

If water is rushing where it should not be, time is crucial. Within 5 minutes, your home or business can be ruined and you are left to deal with a flood insurance job. Don’t let it come to that. Call in the water leak experts in East Kilbride to deal with the problem right away.
Always turn the water off if you can at the main supply. This can be located inside or outside of the property and should be part of your knowledge of the property in the case of any emergency like a water leak.
Central Heating Water Leak
As a central heating system is continually heated and cooled, over time the connections between the pipes and valves can loosen off and water can start leaking out.
Often this can go unnoticed for days before being noticed. Especially if the heating is off for a few days as it can be in the summer and a radiator is slowly leaking out cold water which floods the carpet and may only get noticed when there is a damp patch showing on the ceiling downstairs.
There are a few things which can be done to try and prevent a central heating water leak. You can get an annual boiler service and have the heating engineer check over all your radiators.
You can also bleed your radiators from time to time to ensure that air is not being trapped in the radiators and therefore not running at maximum efficiency.
Of course, a central heating water leak can also be caused when building work is being done round the house and somebody puts a hole in a radiator pipe! As crazy at it sounds, this is a weekly occurrence for a plumber to fix.
Underfloor Heating Leak
If you have an underfloor heating leak, often it is much harder to see and therefore often the signs are only noticed once the damage has started to spread.
Sometimes, the signs will show on the ceiling if the uderfloor heating leak is upstairs. This can be a messy job to trace if floor boards need ripping up in order to trace the leak and assess the damage to repair.
However, it doesn’t always have to be this way. If you get the professional leak detection experts in East Kilbride in to do the job right in the first place.
We have all the necessary tools and equipment to assess where a leak is coming from and often a pipe can be re-routed or capped and another pipe put in its place in order to prevent any further underfloor heating leak.
So, make sure that you speak to the professional leak detection experts in East Kilbride first before you start ripping up your floor boards.

Thank you guys for doing a great job. I was panicking so much when we came home to the flooding that I didn't know what to do. Your plumber, Martin was exceptionally helpful not only in stopping any further damage and preventing the water leak but he was also able to remove a lot of the water with some sort of re-direction of the pipe system. That's when we knew that we had a professional at hand.
We can't thank you enough and my 6 year old son now wants to be a plumber too so that he can help other people. I'll let him know where to get his training!
