Established four years ago by Peter Doyle, who has over 20 years’ experience in the plumbing and heating industry, this dedicated service has proven popular with fellow plumbing and heating contractors.
Leak Locator works as a sub-contractor for the installer, manufacturer, kitchen fitter, home/business owner or insurance companies, allowing them to offer this as an additional service.
Peter explained, “We had been providing this service to utility companies for a number of years but after demand for our services increased, we established Leak Locator in its own right. Since then, we haven’t looked back.
“The majority of our work comes from plumbing and heating contractors who require our specialist expertise to trace a leak and, where necessary, repair it. While most of our work has been in the Greater Belfast area, due to continued investment in our specialist equipment and our staff, we want to expand this across Northern Ireland.”
Leak Locator uses a number of proven methods to accurately find hidden water, sewer and gas leaks. These non-invasive techniques include thermal imaging, acoustic testing and tracer gas and are applicable for use on domestic and commercial applications.
“Customers want solutions, not excuses, and that is where contractors can benefit from having a specialist service provider such as Leak Locator working with them,” added Peter.
That has already proved the case, with wide-ranging testimonials highlighting the success of Leak Locator.
Stephen Kane, Managing Director, Solv Group Ltd, commented, “We have used the guys in Leak Locator many times and have always found them to be very courteous and professional, with their attention to detail second to none.”
This was backed up by Alan Taylor, Installation Manager, Fusion Heating Ltd – “We find them a very professional company, they are very flexible in terms of response times and also guide the customer step by step through the process.
Peter Dawson, Dawson Plumbing and Heating Belfast, concluded, “Peter has the knowledge and equipment to find the leak anywhere, with a fast, efficient service and a great result for my customers.”
