Water Leak Detection Systems for Government Buildings, Museums & Galleries

Aqualeak – Protecting areas of public administration and heritage against the risk of costly and disruptive water damage.

Aqualeak designs and supplies public building leak detection systems that quickly and effectively detect the presence of any unwanted water, alert the user to the leak and automatically cut off the water supply. These include Government Estate and local authority property, museums, galleries, public libraries and buildings of historic interest, among others, protecting invaluable items such as irreplaceable archives, art collections and historic items.

Our public building leak detection systems offer a range of flexible functionality to meet a customer’s specific requirements. This can range from a multi-zone system that can monitor a number of areas within a building from a single control panel, through to a single-zone leak detection system suitable for monitoring individual high value pieces.

Our water leak detectors will alert to an issue, enabling quick and decisive resolution and avoid any unnecessary damage or downtime.

We are highly experienced at working with customers at all stages of a project; from design and specification advice on refurbishment projects, to on-site surveys, through to system installation, commissioning and ongoing maintenance support. This approach means that the right system is selected and ensures consistency of quality and service for the long term.
