Safe and thorough services for protecting residential homes
The team here at Pipe Smart offer a wide range of safe and thorough services for protecting residential homes.
We always offer the best solution for our customers, as we understand every customer's requirements are different but equally important. Our engineers are experienced and competent in locating supply pipes quickly and pinpointing leaks. This means we'll fix repairs promptly with minimal disruption.
If we repair a galvanised steel or black plastic pipe we will assess the condition of the pipe and likely cause of the leak and advise the customer of best steps to manage the issue. If it’s the second leak on an ageing system, we recommend installing a new water main (which we can do for you!)
Water Main Renewal
If you need a new water main installation, whether it be due to a leak or another reason, the Pipe Smart team will install and sign off the installation by issuing a certificate of work completed to the local water authority.

Impact Moling is a technique in which a pneumatically driven percussive mole (soil displacement hammer) is launched from an excavation to displace the soil and form a small tunnel. The pipe is then pulled through negating the need to dig trenches. This saves time and the cost of reinstatement materials resulting in this trenchless solution being less disruptive and more cost-effective for the customer.
Tracer gas leak detection can be a very useful technique to locate water leaks in customer supply pipes, underwater heating systems, boilers, central heating systems and mains distribution networks.
The tracer gas is introduced into the pipe with the leak from a cylinder of gas. The tracer gas used to find water leaks is a mixture of hydrogen (5%) and nitrogen (95%) making it completely safe to use in drinking water supplies as it is both non-toxic and non-corrosive. The tracer gas contains hydrogen, which is the lightest and smallest molecule in the atmosphere, which will exit at the leak point and make its way to the surface where it is detected by the highly sensitive Variotec 460 gas detector.
