Leak Detection Services

Vital Plumbing Specializes in Leak Detection Services in Cape Town

A leaking tap or toilet is evident to identify and fairly simple to fix, but not all water leaks are so straightforward and/or apparent. Leaks coming from pipes buried in the ground or pipes hidden inside walls and floors present unique challenges. Which can be a major concern for any property owner.

However, when you choose Vital Plumbing, you can be assured that your leak concerns will be identified and solved,  Vital Plumbing uses the latest innovations in leak detection to not only detect the leak but also to assess the damage and create a simple and effective strategy to solve the issue.

Vital Plumbing specializes in all Leak Detections methods.

Pipes that are hidden underground or behind walls can make finding leaks considerably harder, this is where Vital Plumbing performs a non-evasive leak detection method.

Our Range of tests include:

The Thermal Test: Using thermal imaging cameras, Vital Plumbing can detect a leak that is located in a covered area, such as in the walls or underground. With a thermal camera, the Vital Plumbing leak detection expert can analyze the different surfaces areas to determine the origin of the leak. As an example, by running hot water, the thermal camera can identify the change in temperature in the before and after areas around the potential leak

The Dye Test: Another test that the Vital Plumbing team performs is the Dye test, this is the task of sealing off an area and releasing a non-staining coloured dye into the pipes, the dyed water is then sucked into the pipe with a leak. Which helps identify where the link is.

Our Philosophy

Vital Plumbing's founding philosophy is based on two basic requirements, these being absolutely NO compromising on a professional adept service and that of using the finest building materials available with NO compromise on the installation thereof by our well trained and dedicated plumbers. In addition to these philosophies we are constantly researching and testing new materials and installation methods that are introduced into the current construction industry in our quest to provide our clients with the best service in the quickest time at a fair price.

It is no coincidence that the majority of our work is acquired through referrals and repeat business from clients with whom we have established longstanding, solid working relations; such is the confidence of our marketplace in the study, execution and quality of our workmanship.

At Vital Plumbing we have a fear of being average in which this initiates our desire to strive for PERFECTION and complete ACCOUNTABILITY...
Big enough to take on anything... Small enough to care about every job and client.

An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity, and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity, will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.
