One of the services I have found difficulty finding is a good pipe leak detector. The reason is that most plumbers in Melbourne don’t do leak detection, they often bring in a specialist detector such as Leon’s Leak Detection to assist in detecting the leak. Often pipe leak detectors don’t provide plumbing services either so it was good to know Leon had some plumbing experience and could also change a washer in my tap during the visit.
I hate it lying in bed at night thinking that the dripping noise in the background is going to be a costly renovation job. This is exactly why I recommend getting detection early rather than later to avoid these kind of problems.
The plumbing council in Victoria also recommends leak detection to be carried out before undertaking any serious plumbing work, so in getting a leak detector you are complying forthwith with the guidelines of the council.
