#1 Leak Detection Services Cape Town

We aim to provide a prompt, professional, clean and friendly service to all clientele leaving them with a piece of mind knowing the job is done right.

Leak detection plumbers are a good option for homeowners who want to avoid the hassle of trying to fix a clogged drain on their own.

There are many reasons why you should consider hiring a Louw Bros leak detection plumber. Here are three of them:

  1. You will be able to save time and money by not having to worry about dealing with the issue yourself. A water leak can cost you thousands in water bills very quickly and the City has a not mercy policy when it comes to huge water bills because of a leaking pipe.
  2. You can have peace of mind knowing that your home is being monitored 24/7 and that your drain is being taken care of when you’re not around.
  3. You won’t have to worry about finding another plumber or trying to find someone who knows what they’re doing if you need help with the repair after hours, weekends, or holidays.

We're Snooper Experts in cape town


We utilize a gas hose reel and Hydrogen snooper by inserting Hydrogen Gas (non toxic) into the water supply line.

The hydrogen detector is a device that detects the presence of hydrogen gas and alerts the user when there is a leak. The device typically uses electronics and electrolysis to detect the presence of hydrogen and oxygen.

The first step in detecting a leak involves using a water line sensor, which detects changes in electrical resistance when water flows through it. When there is a change in resistance, it indicates that there may be an issue with water flow or pressure inside the pipe

We're Pressure Testing Experts in cape town

Pressure Testing

We conduct pressure test on pipes to identify a loss in pressure allowing us to confirm leaks.

Pressure tests are one of the most common water leak detection methods used in homes and businesses. They are a tool used to quickly identify leaks in the plumbing system.

Pressure tests can be done by using a water meter or by using a pressure gauge. A pressure gauge is made up of two parts: a diaphragm, which is attached to the pipe, and an indicator, which tells when it reaches its limit.

Pressure testing can be done on both hot and cold water systems. It can also be done on both new pipes and old pipes.

We're Thermal Imaging Experts in cape town

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging is a quick, non-intrusive method of locating water leaks and tracing hot water pipe routes.

Water damage is a difficult problem to detect. It is not always easy to see the signs of a water leak. However, thermal imaging can help find the telltale signs of water damage.

Thermal imaging technology uses heat waves that are emitted from objects in order to detect objects that are hotter than their surroundings. These waves can be used to identify sources of heat and hot spots that are indicative of a possible water leak.

Water damage detection is an important skill for people who take care of buildings and homes, such as property managers, building inspectors, and fire marshals. But it’s easiest to call your trusty plumber ofcourse!

We're Moisture Meter Experts in cape town

Moisture Meter

We use our moisture meters to identify leaks such as rising damp or concealed leaks.

Moisture meters are the latest tech tools that plumbers and contractors use to help them in their process. They can detect moisture and mold in a house, which helps them in determining the basic needs of the house.

The best way to avoid mold is by having a professional plumber inspect the property. This is because they have experience with all types of moisture issues and are able to identify what needs to be done. Moisture meters can help them in determining whether or not there is moisture or mold present, which will help them determine what kind of remediation steps need to be taken for each individual property.

Mold can cause health problems such as allergic reactions, asthma attacks, respiratory distress, headaches, dizziness, nausea and much more.

CCTV Cameras

Plumbing systems can be a source of water leaks, water damage, and even structural damage. It is important that you inspect your plumbing system regularly to detect any problems.

The purpose of inspecting your plumbing system is to find any issues that might cause a problem in the future. You can also use it as an opportunity to upgrade the system with new technology or improve its efficiency.

Thermal imaging cameras are used by inspectors to find any leaks, cracks, and other issues in the piping and fixtures of your plumbing system.

Why Choose Us?

Technical Reports

Assessments and planning on problematic areas and or new builds with full explanation and recommendation reports.

A leak detection technical report is a document, which is produced by an expert plumber to identify the sources of water or other fluid leaks in a building.

The report will typically be completed using a combination of photographic and textual analysis, including:

  • Checking the ceiling for signs of water damage;
  • Inspecting walls and floors for signs of dampness;
  • Checking the roof for leaks.
  • Examining the ground outside the building to see if there are any visible puddles that could indicate a leak.
  • Conducting air quality tests to detect any traces of moisture in the air.

Leaking water can lead to substantial damage and expensive repairs, so it’s important to find the source as soon as possible.

If you suspect that your roof is leaking, you can use a garden hose and a bucket to determine whether or not it is coming from the roof. If the water drips from the bucket when it’s upside down, then it’s likely coming from above.
