Why Tracing A Leak Yourself Is Usually A Bad Idea

Posted on: September 29th, 2011 No Comments

The current global recession means that you’re changing certain aspects of your life. You need to shop in supermarkets that offer better value, you need to find the best price on petrol for your car and you also need to do as much of your own household repairs and maintenance as you can. You’re not alone and millions of people all over the world are taking the exact same steps as you each day. There are very few people left unaffected by the current recession.

There are some DIY-type tasks around your home that you can take care of without having to worry too much – painting and decorating for example. Or maybe even a bit of furniture restoration or basic carpentry. You might even be able to handle the odd basic plumbing job here and there. But when it comes to tracking down the source of a leak in your home you’re better off leaving the professionals at ADI London take care of that for you.


We’ve mentioned this once or twice in previous posts on the blog and it’s simply that finding a leak isn’t a simple process and leaks are sneaky at times. You could very easily take up an entire wooden floor to find that the source of the leak is actually in another room. Or drill several holes in your walls because you’re sure you’ve found the leak this time – realistically you’ve just ruined that wall.

This is even more true when it comes to gas leaks. All of our leak detection engineers are Gas Safe registered and we strongly recommend that you should only ever allow trained gas engineer to take care of gas related issues in your home or business.

We encourage you to let us find the leak for you because it will save you money and a whole lot of headaches in the long run.
