Effective leak detection for long-lasting solutions

Effective leak detection is central to efficient and long-lasting waterproofing solutions. The Danrae diagnostic team has years of experience in targeting the root cause – from concrete spalling and concrete cancer to liquid damp coursing, leaks, cracks and efflorescence.

We inspect each site, conduct extensive testing and provide a written report on completion with detailed remediation recommendations.

We have a broad scope of equipment and use multiple testing methods for accurate findings – including traditional water testing, Electric Field Vector Mapping (EFVM) and InfraRed Detection, either via on-ground personnel or airborne drones.

With every aspect of leak detection covered, we guarantee to find the problem fast.

I suspect a leak in my property. What should I do?

If you suspect a leak in your property, it’s crucial to address it promptly to prevent further damage. Here are some steps to consider:

  • Initial assessment — Start by identifying the source of the leak. Check areas prone to water ingress, such as bathrooms, kitchens, basements and roofs. Look for signs of moisture, dampness or visible water stains.
  • Limit damage — If possible, stop the water source or contain the leak. This may involve turning off the main water supply or placing containers to catch dripping water.
  • Document the damage — Take photos of the affected areas. This can be helpful for insurance claims and for professionals to understand the extent of the issue.
  • Avoid DIY fixes — While it may be tempting to seal the leak yourself, temporary fixes can sometimes exacerbate the problem. Addressing the root of the issue ensures a durable fix rather than merely patching the surface.
  • Get expert help ASAPReach out to professionals like Danrae Group, who specialise in leak detection and waterproofing. Their expertise can provide a comprehensive assessment, pinpoint the exact cause and recommend the best course of action. Remember, early detection and intervention can save you from costly repairs in the long run. It’s always best to approach such issues proactively and seek expert guidance when in doubt.

What are the different methods of leak detection?

Leak detection has evolved over the years, incorporating both traditional and advanced techniques to ensure accuracy. One foundational method involves hands-on water testing, which helps directly pinpoint leak sources. Another innovative approach is Electric Field Vector Mapping (EFVM), which harnesses electrical currents to spot breaches in waterproofing layers. 

Meanwhile, infrared detection is a non-intrusive technique using infrared technology to highlight surface temperature disparities, often signifying moisture presence. In some cases, aerial insights from drones are harnessed to provide a bird’s-eye view, which is especially useful for large structures or hard-to-reach areas. These diverse methods ensure that every potential leak, whether obvious or hidden, is identified and addressed.

How often should I schedule leak detection checks?

Regular leak detection checks are vital, ideally once a year. However, consider bi-annual inspections for older structures or areas prone to water issues. Timely checks can prevent minor issues from escalating, saving time and money in the long run. Always consult with professionals for tailored advice.
