Frequently Asked Questions
If you have noticed an issue with the pipes or sewers on your property, you will need to diagnose the issue. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions and answers to explain what this and why you might need it.
What Is VLD?
As the name suggests video leak detection is a solution that will diagnose and discover a leak in the pipes of your home or any property. It uses state of the art equipment to discover and pinpoint a leak so that it can be repaired as quickly as possible.
How Does It Work?
If you choose to arrange a video leak detection service, a technician will bring the advanced equipment to your home. A camera will be mounted onto a cable. The cable and camera will typically be small enough to fit down a large variety of different pipes. Once the plumber arrives at your property, the cable will be inserted down the pipe that needs to be checked. This camera provides a live feed so a plumbing specialist will immediately be able to tell you where the water or sewage is leaking from. The process is designed to be as quick and easy as possible.
When Will You Need VLD?
You will need this form of detection if you notice an issue with your pipes or sewage system and want it fixed as quickly as possible. Signs that you have a leak could include an issue with increased water usage and high water bills. Alternatively, you might find that sewage leaks are causing unpleasant smells in and around your property. If you notice an issue like this, there’s a good chance you are facing a problem with a leak.
What Are The Benefits?
As well as offering a rapid approach to leakage issues, this form of troubleshooting provides a range of other benefits. First, it is far more cost-effective because it can be completed without removing a single piece of your home. After the solution is complete, no one will be able to tell you have had a plumber to check your pipes. This means that no tiles will be removed, no land will be dug up and no holes will be drilled into your wall. The solution also provides a rapid turnaround time that is sure to be appealing for homeowners, eager to get the issue fixed as quickly as possible.
Is This The Only Option?
Video leak detection is not the only option available for diagnosing an issue with your pipes. Sonar is another possibility. Listening discs and ground microphones can be used to find leaks too. Or, an acoustic amplifier can be used to increase the sound of a plumbing leak that could be too small to hear.
Is This The Best Option?
It is certainly beneficial if the plumber already has a general idea of where the leak is. If that’s the case the equipment can be used to pinpoint the exact location on the pipe. As well as finding a specific leak location, this technology also allows plumbers to look at some of the best repair options. They will be able to give you a clear idea of the work that needs to be completed on your pipe.
Do All Plumbers Use It?
Not all plumbers have the technology needed to perform this service. Some are still operating using older forms of technology. If you are keen to access this solution, it is important to ask the plumber what equipment and method they will be using to detect the leak. Particularly, if you want the service to be as non-intrusive and rapid as possible.
What Happens If This Does Provide Evidence Of A Leak?
Once a leak has been detected using this equipment, the plumber will then decide on the best course of action. Repairing leaks can require some work. However, you’ll be pleased to hear that with the latest technology, it is possible to fix leaks without causing extensive damage to your home. Expert plumbers will make sure that there is as little disturbance to your property as possible when fixing a leak that has been detected.
