Leak Detection for Dublin


Leak detection service for Dublin city and county

Have the council informed you that your water usage is abnormally high, or that you are using a lot of water outside your business hours? This is probably due to leakage. Our leak detection service helps you quickly and accurately pinpoint problems at a reasonable cost. Some of our clients have spent a long time searching for the cause of a leak before they have asked us to come in and find it - this has cost them man hours, and in the meantime their water bill is getting large.

The majority of our clients are based in the Dublin area and range from a small water leak on a domestic house to high water meter usage on a business park or college. If you give us a phone call we will come out and survey what the job entails and give a rough estimate of time and cost to complete the works.

Due to the small size of this leak on half inch Hydrodare it was not easy to pinpoint. Leaks Ireland takes great care to pinpoint leaks as accurately as possible so as to minimise the size of the excavation.

We provide a professional, fully compliant leak detection service for Dublin, and nationwide too. You can get a free leak detection quotation from us here.

How we detect leaks

As part of our leak detection service we carry out the following procedures:


Most pipes leaking underground vibrate the earth around it. This vibration is picked up by the sensor of the ground microphone and converted into a sound signal. With many years of acoustic sounding experience we can pinpoint the exact location of the leak.

We use the market leading German made FAST M200 ground microphone to acoustically sound for leaks.

Tracer Gas

Sometimes it is not possible to use acoustics due to:

  • noisy environment
  • depth of pipe
  • size of leak

In these circumstances we will replace the water in the pipe with an inert gas. The gas will escape from the break in the pipe and rise to the surface where it is detected using the FAST gas-check-H2.
