Leak detection no find no fee – terms of trade

Our full terms and conditions are straight forward, but if you have any questions please give us a call or drop us an email. We have highlighted the main bullet points below.

The biggest problems occur from a lack of access. Good examples are locked doors in multiple occupancy homes or a leak traced to another property or area we have no access to.

  1. Inspection Access:
    1. We need to ‘see’ the maximum area of floor possible; these areas need to be as uncluttered as possible.
    2. We only undertake destructive access under instruction.
    3. Method of detection is at the discretion of our engineer.
    4. We will try to work around limited access, heavily cluttered areas, refusal of methods or refusal/lack of access may result in our engineer being unable to conclude his work & our full fee will be due.
    5. In multiple occupancy property (shared accommodation or flats) we may need access to the adjacent property(s). Where this access is not possible, or the leak is traced to beyond the client’s property, this will be a chargeable leak detection visit.
  2. Fees & Payment:
    1. Our ‘no find no fee’ leak detection is per visit for domestic customers only for leaks on hot/cold pipework and water mains, it excludes commercial leak detection as well as damp/roof investigation and swimming pool leak detection.
    2. For successful location of a significant leak, where we suspect more leaks are present we will attempt to detect these, however the first leak may disguise additional leaks.
    3. Additional visits if required, are charged at the current rate, but we will try to identify everything in a single visit.
    4. Repairs are an additional cost, we will advise on the cost and if the repair is permanent or temporary. Materials remain the property of Adept Plumbing and Gas until invoice is paid in full.
    5. Repairs carry a 100-day warranty, unless stated as temporary. 
  3. Leak detection & localisation:
    1. Using a range of equipment, we will localise a leak to a specific area; there are certain limits to non-invasive methods and materials can shift detection results and may enlarge the area of repair to both pipe work and flooring.
    2. Ducting, sheathing and glued vinyl can block trace gas leak detection. In the case of a floor covering over a solid floor blocking access, we will endeavour to localise with other methods (damp, thermal, acoustic).
    3. In the case of a sprung floor we can locate a room or area of the leak, as the gas used will spread in the void localisation is much harder. Using thermal and sound equipment we will endeavour to reduce this area.
    4. Leak detection is also considered successful where we find no leak is present (e.g. after incorrect or mistaken water authority notification).
  4. Damage, Liability & Complaints:
    1. We accept no liability for:
      1. Damage during normal activities, to detect, access and/or repair a leak.
      2. Damage caused by undetected leaks.
      3. Failure of a repair connected to existing pipework.
      4. Blockage/failure from leak detection, access or repair.
    2. Whilst every effort is made is made to locate a leak without destructive works, there is no replacement for physically accessing an area. Where there is subsequent doubt over the leak location we will re-attend to confirm the leak location, on the basis that:
      1. The area has not been accessed
      2. No repair has been made
      3. No leak sealant has been used
      4. The leak is the same rate of loss as reported
      5. Second visit is arranged within 14 days of original detection.Damage during normal activities, to detect, access and/or repair a leak.

If our findings are proven incorrect (within the limitations of section 6) there will be no charge for this second visit, if we still fail to find the leak, we will refund our original fee.

However if a leak is found to be in the same leak location, re-attendance is chargeable at the same rate as original leak detection.

Where a repair is made to an indicated area and there is further leakage found not to be from the original location (a different, concurrent or subsequent leak) re-attendance is charged at the standard rate.
