Same Day Detection & Repairs

Are you experiencing a huge drop in the water pressure on your property? How about a major jump in your water bill? A water main leak could be to blame! At Gold Coast Leak Detection—as our name suggests—we provide leak detection services on Gold Coast water main and other underground systems.

Your water main pipe is the primary source of water to your home, commercial or industrial premises. A leak in this line essentially reduces the amount of water able to flow into your property—which can lead to extensive damage.

If you suspect you’ve got a leak in your water main, we offer same-day leak detection, same-day repair services and no call out fees all over the Gold Coast. To book our plumbing team for a job at your place, get in touch today on 1300 433 585.


Concealed Water Leak Policy

In some cases, a concealed water leak may be present on your property without you realising it. The Council of the City of Gold Coast have acknowledged this and implemented the Concealed Water Leak Policy on July 1, 2021.

This policy allows residents to apply for remission for excess water usage charges if a hidden leak the property owner could not have reasonably known of has caused a dramatic increase in their water usage and bill. Eligibility criteria are featured on the Council website. Click here to download the application form

Importance Of Early Leak Detection

What starts out as a small leak can get much bigger over time if you ignore it. The constant flow of water can wear down pipes and fittings, weakening the surrounding materials and setting the scene for extensive damage. That’s why early leak detection can:

  • Save you money on your water bill and prevent costly repairs in the future
  • Prevent property damage, including structural damage, foundation damage and damage to landscaping
  • Prevent health hazards caused by standing water from leaks, that create a breeding ground for bacteria and mould
  • Preserve the environment by saving water

What To Do When You Suspect A Water Main Leak

If you suspect a water main leak, it’s essential to take immediate action to prevent further damage. Here are steps to follow:

  1. Turn off the Water Supply to your property to prevent further damage and water wastage
  2. Contact a professional water leak service immediately; they’ll have the necessary equipment and expertise to locate and repair the leak
  3. Document the leak by taking pictures or videos of it and any resulting damage for insurance purposes
  4. Apply for remission through the Gold Coast Council. If a hidden leak on your property has dramatically increased your water bill, you may be eligible for excess charges to be taken care of

By following these steps, you can prevent further damage to your property and conserve water.
