    Camera Inspections For Best Results

    water damage from leaking pipesIt’s not unusual to attend a water leak investigation across Adelaide and find that where the water could be presenting at the surface is not necessarily the cause of the problem.  Its during an investigation like this that we may need to open a wall or remove a few bricks to further identify what the issues are.  Once a small penetration has been made, we can either look straight into the cavity or insert cameras which will give us a clear insight to what is occurring while maintaining minimal disruptions to the building.

    Our specialised CCTV Camera equipment and location devices are available in both small and large camera heads.  With this flexibility it allows us to see in the most discreet locations and record all types of images with sound over voice recording.  All investigations can be saved to a USB stick either supplied by us or direct by the customer.  The full colour monitor and self-levelling heads gives a true impression of what is occurring behind your walls and inside your ceilings.

    Experience Matters

    Accurate and professional water leak investigation relies heavily on experience with this comes knowledge (something that cannot be bought and once acquired is priceless – the Mayfair difference).  It’s the ability to attend a site (each time they are different) and be able to stop and think how could of someone else performed this work when first installed?  Its not always thinking how someone might have correctly performed the work but how they may have done it incorrectly eventually leading to a failure.  Many companies will promote they can find a leak, but don’t have the 20 plus years of experience.  Mayfair Plumbing have that experience which allows for accurate leak investigations time and time again with the right result for our clients.
