Water Leak Detection
Can you hear water running when nothing is being used in the house? Or have you received an unusually high water bill? Then call Aus Star Plumbing and Gas on 0401 5454 471 and we can use our Water Leak Detection to search and locate it for you. We will then use our Water Leak Repair tools and techniques to fix the leak no matter where it is located.
We use acoustic equipment that picks up water leaking from pipes underground or in the walls and these pipes make an audible sound that our equipment picks up that you may not hear. We can then use Water Leak Repair thermal imaging to locate the approximate area of the water leak and fix it for you.
How to check if you have a leak?
> Turn off anything that uses water like retic, taps to toilet and hot water unit
> Locate your water meter and see if the numbers are moving, sometimes it’s best to take a photo with your phone then go sit down and have a cup of tea and go back and take another photo 10-15 minutes later to see if it has moved.
> If the numbers have moved and you haven’t used anything water then you need to call Aus Star Plumbing and Gas on 0401 545 471 and we will come and locate the leak and fix it for you. If you then get a high water bill, we can also submit a leak allowance form to Water Corp on your behalf to see if you qualify for a rebate.
