Drain Leak Detection

Fast Drains Offers A Thorough Drain Leak Detection Service

Drainage systems play a crucial role in every property, and therefore, require regular checks and maintenance to ensure they are intact and functioning optimally. A drain pipe leaking can emerge as a real cause of concern if overlooked for some amount of time, carrying the potential to cause costly issues, including property damage.

Drain Leakage Comes with Concerns

The following issues surface if the drain leak detection process is neglected while the threat of a burst or damaged pipe loom:

  • Risk of property damage
  • Significant rise in water bills
  • Build-up of fungus and mould, detrimental to health and well-being

The prime solution to these dangers is early drain leak detection. Many leaks may go unnoticed because of occurring in hidden areas; hence, hiring an expert to get your property examined once you identify an increase in your water bill, or any other sign of a leaked drain, is vital.

Signs that You Require Sewer Leak Detection

The sooner you discover your drain leak, the less damage you will suffer. Even if you do not expect any drain leakage, you should look out for the following signs that imply you should get your drain pipes checked:

  • Mould and dampness resulting from water seeping into your building.
  • Subsidence due to water penetrating into the soil beneath your building, causing the ground to soften and wash away and the structure’s foundation to move.

We are ready to assist you 24x7

Typical signs of subsidence are:

  • Cracks popping up in the walls, pathways, etc.
  • Sinking or slanting of floors.
  • Windows or doors getting jammed.
  • Cracks forming at places where the extension meets the main property.
  • Water collecting around your building or emerging through the paving or grass in the lawn.
  • Foul smell emanating from the drain itself.

Apart from the above, there are a few signs that only a drain expert can detect. These include:

  • Water passing through surface drains without there being any rainfall.
  • Private foul drains carrying clean water when the building is empty.
