Trace and Access
What is Trace and Access?
A leaking pipe is commonly known as one of the most costly types of damage to occur within home or business premises. Pipes and water mains are almost always boxed in and are covered by plaster or brink and sometimes beneath floor boards, therefore it is very difficult to establish the source or exactly where the damage is being caused. Trace and Access is the process of identifying the source so that the EXACT location of the water leak can be accessed.
It is inevitable at some point in an average household’s life span that a pipe may burst or spring a leak behind the foundations of a building. As the pipe is not visible, you may know that damage is being caused in the form of dampness or even water seeping through cracks in walls, ceilings or floors but you cannot pinpoint the affected area accurately. Not being able to pin point the affected area is what will cost you more than it should as some may try to tear up floorboards or plaster to try and find the pipe.
