Customer Reviews

I can highly recommend Wes from Sydney Leak Detection to locate that impossible leak that no one else seemed able to find.  Fast to respond, very pleasant and informative to quickly identify where the leak in my house was coming from.  Thank you Sydney Leak Detection.

Using the right technology coupled with wisdom and years of experience, Sydney Leak Detection, solved the water ingress problems that had dogged our development for nearly a decade despite successive expensive attempts at remediation. His investigation and subsequent remedial work were quick and inexpensive.
I unequivocally recommend Sydney Leak Detection, to get to the root of water ingress before money is wasted through careless, incorrect or inaccurate diagnosis.

Owen, Strata Chair Avalon NSW

The team at Sydney Leak Detection are the ultimate unstoppable super sleuths. Within 5 mins they detected the source of a very complex leak in our unit that multiple plumbers had failed to identify and understand. I have recommended their dedicated service to anyone and everyone because the difference is – they understand water, plumbing and building construction and his inquisitive mind uses his knowledge and experience to solve the problem where others have failed to do so.

For the past 10 years, our go-to provider of solutions to these issues has been Sydney Leak Detection. The team brings a wealth of experience along with a commitment to doing a great job.
