A trace and access job that went high and low

A leaking pipe can be infuriating for a home owner. It can be doubly so if you don’t even know where the leak is coming from. The plumbing pipework of a homes water pipes, drainage and heating system are mostly hidden from view behind walls so a leak can be incredibly hard to locate unless there is a very clear sign of where it is originating from.

And that is exactly what one of our recent jobs had. The customer located in the North of Glasgow had suffered from. A slow leak caused by pipe fatigue had begun to cause noticeable damage that first alerted the customer.

JSL Plumbing, as one of the leading plumbers in Glasgow was quickly called to the scene. One of our trained plumbers quickly began the trace and access process.

A trace and access plumbing job looking for a leaking pipe in a kitchen

What made this job particularly tricky was that the leak was located against the wall above the kitchen which limited our access. This meant that to complete the job, we had to come at it from two angles – literally. We had to cut an access point in the ceiling of the kitchen and lift the carpet and remove a floor board in the room directly above.

Copper pipes can suffer from fatigue through general wear. Slow leaks are silent and can go undetected for long periods of time.

If you have noticed dark/damp patches forming in your ceiling, or on walls, it may be that you have a slow leak. The best advise we can give is not to delay. Call the experts today. We don’t charge a call out fee and all of our work is guaranteed.

  • Quick resolution of problem and good communication.
  • Very friendly throughout the process. Clear information given and very thorough. I will be using them again!
  • JSL Plumbing & Heating replaced a kitchen and a bathroom tap and fixed a toilet where the cistern was leaking into the bowl. He was personable and professional, and provided advice on which replacement taps we might want to get for the bathroom. He provided updates on his progress throughout, and the pricing was reasonable. We have used JSL before and would happily do so again. Have also recommended this company to others.
  • Job completed to our satisfaction. Bathroom and en-suite left tidy and work completed in the timescale agreed and charged as per the quote. Good quality fittings used. Would certainly use JSL Plumbing Services again in future.
  • Jim assessed the leak, which required repair and offered an honest appraisal. He was on time, polite and carried out the work as planned. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and would use for a larger installation in the future.
  • Had a bent radiator pipe I needed replacing and as I'd already called them out thought I'd get some bath taps fitted. I'd been putting the job off as it was in a really awkward tight place and knew it wouldn't be pleasant. The plumber was happy to help and it didn't cost me as much as I expected for the time and fiddly nature of the job.
  • Very good service with work done quickly after contacting company.
