Aqualeak, a leading provider of flow and sensor-based water leak detection and prevention systems for residential, commercial and industrial property, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Gas and Controls Limited (“Gas and Controls”), one of Ireland’s fastest-growing gas detection and environmental monitoring companies.
The partnership sees Gas and Controls become preferred and approved distribution and installation providers across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland for Aqualeak’s full range of water leak detection and prevention systems.
Based 15 minutes from Belfast City Centre, Gas and Controls uses state-of-the-art gas detection technology and, as an established supplier in the gas detection industry, they provide unrivalled commissioning and maintenance service of gas safety systems throughout the UK and Ireland.
The company has gone through a period of sustained growth and is continually investing in its core business, offering clients unrivalled service and backup, committing to zero downtime. As an established and recognised provider within the industry, Gas and Controls works with a range of leading manufacturers, offering industry solutions in gas detection, metering, regulators, portable monitoring, escape set servicing and water leak detection.
The company has worked with Aqualeak since 2014, offering customers a strong portfolio of products. Alongside providing equipment, Gas and Controls has also provided clients with installation and on-site commissioning. The company also has a history of working with a range of well-known Contractors and Facilities Management companies within Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Gas and Controls also has highly trained and competent staff providing over-the-phone support and offer advice on timescales of repairs and remedial work to minimise downtime for the end client.
Aqualeak’s range of systems includes flow-based devices for residential applications, as well as single and multi-zone sensor-based systems suitable for monitoring properties of all types and sizes. These systems identify leaks from burst/faulty pipework and ingress and takes immediate action to mitigate costly and disruptive water damage, through automatic shut off valves and early warning notifications. Aqualeak now also offers monitoring solutions for temporary water supplies used during the construction phase of a project, in-line with recent guidance from the Construction Insurance Risk Engineers Group (CIREG). Aqualeak also offers a range of products that meet BREEAM criteria.
Commenting on the partnership, Steve Woods, Managing Director of Aqualeak, said: “As we have seen in other countries, demand for water leak detection on new build and refurbishment projects across Ireland is growing rapidly. This is largely being driven by the insurance industry’s need to reduce the significant level of escape of water claims that has risen steadily in recent years for a variety of reasons. Gas and Controls’ in-depth knowledge of the market, strong reputation and relationships within the M&E engineering community and highly skilled and experienced team makes them ideal partners for us, to raise awareness of our systems in Ireland. We are really excited about the opportunities that working together will present.”
Warren Kerr, Managing Director at Gas and Controls, said:
“We are delighted to announce the new partnership with Aqualeak. We have worked with Aqualeak for a number of years and look forward to strengthening our existing relationship through a new partnership arrangement. As the demand for water leak detection is growing rapidly in Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland, Gas and Controls is uniquely positioned to offer our existing customers a class-leading product. Our relationships within the M&E construction sector, combined with local market knowledge, offer a unique synergy with the in-depth experience of the Aqualeak product portfolio. We are excited to be appointed the official sales and service point of contact in Ireland for a market-leading product in water leak detection.”
