  • Emergency repair of damaged central heating pipe

    10Verified Review

    I managed to drill through my floorboard and into the pipe to my radiator causing a serious leak (until the water in the system drained). I tried a few plumbers from check a trade and chose Absolute because they were available and were not the most expensive. They provided a fast response. The plumber was polite and pleasant and quickly completed the repair in less than 30 minutes. The cost was £250 + £50 vat which seems high but was in line with other quotes - and I was advised up front. I would use this company again - they seem competent and trustworthy.

Non-evasive leak detection:

  • Have you got water damage to floor coverings, ceilings or walls?
  • A spinning water meter but nothing in use within the house or a high-water bill?
  • Loft tanks constantly running?
  • Combination boiler losing in pressure?
  • Is your plumber / builder scratching their heads and your worried that everything must be excavated or taken out to locate the cause?

Then we can help by locating the cause of the above issues without causing any damage until the source of the damage / leak is exposed and ready for repair.

Nine times out of ten we only need to remove 1-2 floor tiles or floor boards to access a leak under a floor and make a repair, which saves a lot of disruption and excess damage / mess.

Using the highest tech equipment of thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, endoscopes, ground micro phones, tracer gases and dyes we can locate your leak or the source of damage, even if an issue with rainwater ingression or rising damp is apparent. This can be identified by taking plaster / concrete samples to carry out a salts test.

We offer a full service of locating the leak, making access / excavating of the leak, repairing the leak and completing a fully detailed insurance company recognised report. The report covers all damage caused by the leak, how we found the leak, and the access work which was required to repair the leak. The report also includes full advisories of works required to remedy the damage and the dampness still present if any.
