We are water leak detection specialists. We make use of advanced digital and electro-acoustic water leak detection equipment which is extremely effective in locating hidden water leaks in all manner of piping including water supply pipes, swimming pools and bathroom waste pipes. We also utilise scuba diving equipment for commercial leak detection applications such as swimming pools, reservoirs and tanks.
Underground leaks can be caused by aging water pipes, corrosion, faulty installation, ground movement, excessively high pressure. Electro-acoustic and gas leak detection or inferior materials is the best solution for finding below ground water leaks.
Unusually high water bills, sound of running water when taps are closed and presence of damp spots on walls, paving, lawns and garden beds are indications that there may be a water leak. Not taking action quickly to locate and repair water leaks can lead to costly water bills and may cause damage to building foundations and walls.

The chances are you have a burst geyser! We are able to replace all sizes of geysers and will fit them to the South African National Standards. If you are insured you will be able to submit our invoice to your insurance company.
Below is a list of some of the signs that your geyser or it’s components have become faulty. If you experience any of these symptoms please don’t hesitate to contact us:
Avoid having to switch off your geyser manually with this clever device. You are able to monitor the temperature in your geyser at all times and are able to set up to 4 on/off times per day. You are able to run your geyser for as little as one and a half hours per day, depending on water usage.
We believe fitting Geyser Blankets can help reduce the heat lost by your geyser and lead to a reduction in the amount of electricity which is used to keep geyser hot.
We can fit pipe insulation to new and existing hot water piping. This will reduce heat loss and can also prevent pipes from freezing and bursting on cold winter nights.
We also specialise in installing Industrial Geysers.

We are able to replace all pressure reducing valves and other relief valves and arrange industrial valve servicing or replacement.
These are just some of the valves we work with on a daily basis.
We are able to recommend a Heat Pump solution for your existing geysers or with your new build. We install the full range of Heat Pumps, from 3.2 kW right up to 77 kW units for more industrial applications.
With a Heat Pump installed you are able to save up to 65 % on your water heating costs, depending on geyser size and location.
It’s the new trend in water heating that’s fast gaining momentum in South Africa! Whether in homes or hotels, water heating accounts for a large portion of electricity usage. With rapidly increasing electricity costs, everyone’s looking to cut down.
Water heaters work on the same heat pump principle as air conditioners, extracting ambient heat from the atmosphere but, instead, transferring it to water.
Thus where in a normal geyser, 1 kW of electrical energy produces just 1 kW of heat energy, with an Alliance Air Heat Pump Water Heater, 1 kW of electrical energy produces approximately 3 kW of heat energy.
The result is water heated for only approximately one third of the electrical usage of a normal household geyser. You save two-thirds on your water heating costs!
Electricity is used in a Heat Pump simply to power a compressor and a fan. The compressor compresses gas into a liquid, causing it to heat up (in the same way a bicycle pump gets hot when a tyre is pumped up). This heat is then transferred to circulating water which is stored in a geyser.
In the next part of the cycle the gas evaporates, resulting in it cooling down. Here, a fan blows air over the cold gas-filled piping, which extracts ‘free’ heat from the ambient temperature and causes the gas to warm up again. The gas is then compressed once more, releasing the extracted heat to warm water and the cycle continues as before.
Result: energy-efficient water heating at a third of the cost of electric-element heating.
Water Heaters cost less to install than the average solar heater and can operate at night in off-peak times or in cloudy or rainy weather. There are no unsightly solar collectors on your roof subject to possible damage.
We supply and install reserve tanks for household and irrigation purposes from 500 litre – 10000 litre above and below ground tanks.
We can customise a rain water harvesting solution for your needs and budget.
A typical system would take water from your gutters through a leaf catcher to remove leaves and large particles. It would then go through a “First Flush” to stop most sediment from entering your tank.
From the tank, this water can be pumped and used for irrigating, topping up swimming pools or even filtered to supply portable water to the house.
Some areas have poor pressure or have regular water outages. Booster pumps can help house and/or irrigation systems in these instances.
We can install pressure switches and vessels as well as flow control valves.
By removing fats, oils and grease from kitchen and other wastewater, grease traps provide an essential service – keeping drains clear and septic tanks functioning smoothly.
Fats, oils and grease from waste water disrupt plumbing systems, causing blockages, it is essential that professionals are called on a regular basis to clean grease traps and perform proper maintenance services in order to keep this plumbing system operating properly.
Geezers Plumbing offer a wide range of services which include cleaning grease traps unblocking the drains and ensuring that your drain system and your septic tank is clear of all waste water and contaminants.
Subsoil drainage system is designed to be installed underground in order to remove excessive water from the soil, so that it doesn’t cause damage to buildings or to the landscape.

A septic tank has three main functions:
A French Drain is a trench filled with gravel or rock or containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from an area. Infiltration chambers are now used as a more efficient and effective way of dispersing outflow from septic tanks and bio-reactors.
A sump pump is a pump used to remove water that has accumulated in ‘a water collecting sump basin’ commonly found in basements, or lift shafts.
The water may enter via the perimeter drains of a basement waterproofing system, funnelling into the basin or because of rain or natural ground water, if the basement is below the water table level.
An experienced plumber will oversee the job to ensure that you, the client, receive the highest level of professionalism for any plumbing job.
