How electronic leak detection fits into your build.


Send us your drawings

Once you've confirmed you're using membrane, we'll ask you to send us your drawings.  We'll measure, offer advice and send you a quote.

During this process, we can answer any questions you may have, including:

  • How to incorporate membrane into your drawings
  • Which process is best for testing the membrane – flood or electronic

  • How to ensure you're meeting your local council's regulations around waterproofing testing (if applicable)

If you're keen to progress, ILD's requirements will be incorporated into your building programme.

 

What happens on-site

Building starts. We'll work with you/the project manager/the water-proofer to sort out a plan for when testing will happen. 

Note: This timing is contingent on whether or not mesh is required (this is dependent on the type of substrate). 

For non-conductive substrates such as plywood or insulated roofs, mesh is required. Your waterproofer or builder will need to lay the mesh before testing can happen. 

For conductive substrates such as concrete, mesh isn't required and testing can be completed after the membrane is installed.

 

We'll send you our report

After testing is completed; we'll provide you with a report including details on any leaks or workmanship faults.

This report will include CAD drawings, picture documentation and written analysis detailing the locations of the breaches.

If leaks are detected, we can easily retest the membrane after they've been fixed.
