A real example, a leaking joint in a buried pipe.
Recently, we were called out to an outside pool in a garden in Surrey. The pool was losing 6 cms in a 24 hour period, with the pump running. We were able to locate the cause of the leak, with pinpoint accuracy, a combination of our extensive experience, knowledge and having the right equipment to locate the leak.
The repair was made to a leaking joint on the pipe, we followed this up with a service to ensure the pool was in tip top condition.
