Should you find yourself unsure if you are facing a leak, here are some of the key signs that you should look out for:

  • Surprisingly high water bills

  • Newly green patches of grass around your property

Once we arrive at your property to carry out a leak detection survey, we will use our specialist equipment to accurately locate any leaks to establish the course of action required. We invest into the latest tools and stay up to date with the most effective practices so we can work quickly and accurately, helping you get back to everyday life in no time. In most cases, we can carry out water pipe leak repair on our very first visit but should this not be possible, we will discuss the options that are available to you and provide you a fixed price quote.

Water Pipe Leak Repair

After identifying the source of the problem, effective water leak repairs will be carried out to resolve the issue. Working with you to cause the least possible disruption to your day and leaving your property with minimal scarring, we pride ourselves on providing a considerate and efficient service. Our professional team will communicate with you from start to finish so you can gain a thorough understanding of the issue and the options available for water pipe leak repair, getting professional recommendations to prevent the issue from reoccurring going forward.

Visible Water Leak Repair

In some cases, the location of a leak is easy to identify. A particularly green patch of grass, damp patch on the driveway, water pooling or bubbling are all indicators of the area where the leak is on your water supply pipe. With this information, we are more likely to be able to provide an accurate quote for the work needed for water leak repair and will arrange an efficient site visit from our Contracts Manager. With your go ahead, we will arrange for a crew to attend your property with all of the necessary plant and equipment they need to undertake immediate leak investigation and water pipe leak repair. Upon completion of the work, we also carry out additional checks to ensure that there are no further leaks on the supply so we leave with peace of mind that your property is back up and running as normal.

Lead Water Pipe Replacement

In certain scenarios, replacing the water paper completely is a more effective solution than carrying out water leak repairs. Old pipes can become problematic as they corrode with age and risk further leaks occurring. Damaged or corroded pipes can lead to hidden leaks that reduce the water pressure to your home, causing problems with your washing machine, power shower, dishwasher and central heating system. By replacing the supply pipes completely, the possibility of further leaks is reduced and can become more cost effective than continuing to repair old pipes. During the process, we use a thrust bore mole to install the pipe which causes less disruption to the surface, resulting in less land scarring. As well as issues with corrosion, older pipes can also fail to provide adequate flow for modern demands due to their narrow design so may benefit from an upgrade.

If you are considering lead water pipe replacement, we offer a free of charge survey. Our Contracts Manager will attend your property to assess the site and provide you with a fixed price quotation for increasing the size of the pipe at your property or carrying out lead water pipe replacement for corroded pipework.

Redirecting The Water Supply Pipe

If you are making changes to a property, the need for changes to your water pipe is likely. Adding a home extension or conservatory will require the water supply pipe to be redirected to meet the needs of your additional space. Alternatively, any garden landscaping may be affected by the pipework which can get in the way of the changes. A survey can be arranged to assess your individual situation and find a solution to redirect the pipes around the property to a new entry point.

" Hamblin was recommended to us by friends. We have received nothing but reassurance and total professionalism from all of you. From the moment Sue spoke to Deana, who completely put her mind at rest, we have been so pleased with the service. Kevins visit provided us with a clear understanding of the problem and confidence that his workmen would be able to fix the leak without having to dig up half our newly landscaped garden. Ally and Rado soon identified the location of the leak using their gas detector and set about removing one of our paving slabs to dig the hole - quite deep for such a small footprint. This was done without damage to the paving. Once the leak was found and fixed, they backfilled the hole and re-cemented and re-pointed the slab. You would hardly know they had been there! Throughout the process they were happy to show us what the problem was and tell us what they were doing. Thank you so much once again. Rest assured we will let any of our friends know how great the service has been." Customer in Guildford

"On Monday September 28th a team from Hamblin arrived to relay our water supply pipe. Due to a cancellation they were a week early which was very welcome! My wife and I would like to put on record .how delighted we are with their work. We found the team to be very friendly, polite and professional. Pavers on our front drive had to be taken up to enable two holes to be dug. At the completion of the work they were replaced perfectly. There is now no sign of any disturbance to our drive and the connection in our kitchen is also perfect. We would not hesitate to recommend Hamblin to anyone needing similar work to be undertaken."
