A specialist tracer gas, an inert mixture of 5% hydrogen and 95% nitrogen, is used to replace water in the leaking pipework. Under pressure, this gas will escape from the leak and travel up through the floor, ground or walls. The gas can escape through concrete floors, timber and all types of floor finishes including tiles, laminate and carpet. A sensitive probe pinpoints the leak by detecting any trace of the gas down to just a few parts per million. The gas tracing can be used on all types of pipe leaks, including central heating, underfloor heating, mains, hot and cold and is a very accurate way of finding leaks.
The gas tracing equipment we use is by Sewerin, which is state of the art and the best equipment on the market. We pride ourselves on using the very latest leak detection techniques to locate and resolve hidden leaks, this ensures the minimum amount of disruption to you and your home.
