Leak Detection Services

Due to severe water shortages in South Africa today, leak detection has become vitally important in aiding conservation of water. Detecting a leak early can save you money and resultant damage to property. A 0.5mm hole can lose as much as 4752 liters of water a day.

Some leaks are simple to detect, while others are a lot trickier. We use state of the art leak detection equipment and are regularly used by the City of Cape Town to trace undetectable leaks. We can assist with the detection of the leak, as well as the repair once detected. We will then issue you with a water consumption letter, which can be submitted to the City of Cape Town Water Department for a water account rebate application.

Watts Plumbing is an appointed leak detection service provider for Outsurance and Bryte Insurance, and are also on the list of City of Cape Town accredited plumbers.

Do you have any of these leak related problems?

Dampness on walls – paint bubbling

Lifting tiles or wooden flooring

High water bills

You may have a leak!

Here is an easy way to establish if you do if you have a leak.

  1. Close all taps and other water using fixtures to ensure no water is running.

  2. Find your council water meter and see if the meter is turning.

  3. If the meter is still turning you probably have a leak.

    Watts plumbing have been our plumbers for around 7 years. We have always had magnificent service – never having waited for more than a few days for less urgent calls, and the same day service for anything more serious. The quality of their work has always been of highest standards, their service more than efficient (in fact they often go out of their way to ensure you get your parts etc.) and the staff are all a pleasure to deal with and have around I feel more than confident to, (and often do) recommend them to all my friends!

    Over the past ten years I have used Watt’s Plumbing for a whole host of plumbing jobs, ranging from blocked drains, sorting out leaks to plumbing a new house I built. Every time I’ve used them I found them to be obliging, professional, courteous, reliable and efficient, always delivering a high quality of workmanship. Their pricing is also very fair and reasonable. As far as plumbing goes, I have every confidence in their well-trained teams and will continue to recommend them whenever anyone asks me to recommend a plumber.

    Wattapac was used. The water was pumped out from the broken geyser into a heavy-duty ‘bag’ and then once the new geyser had been installed the same water saved was repumped back into the new geyser.

    The pumping out took approximately 5 minutes as did the pumping in of the saved water back into the new geyser. The whole process was super-efficient, there was no water loss and the process took less than an hour. An amazing product! Thank you.
