Business Spotlight with Brendan & Kirrily Dowd from Pipewerx Leak Detection

About Us

We made the move to the Sunshine Coast from South Australia around 8 years ago with our 4 boys and have been living on our property in Verrierdale with our 2 Horses and 2 Dobermans since 2015.

After working in the construction and mining industry for 25 years and with our family growing older very fast, we decided it was time to start our own business and with Brendan being a qualified plumber the leak detection industry was appealing.

We started Pipewerx Leak Detection in 2018 and our core business is finding water leaks. We find and repair water leaks in swimming pools, we locate mains water leaks whether they are inground, under concrete or in walls, and we detect moisture internally.

What do you enjoy most about your industry?

Using a combination of skills and technology to locate leaks that people can’t see, saving the customer thousands of dollars and preventing the loss of precious water.

One thing you would recommend to clients.

We would definitely recommend anyone purchasing a property with an existing pool to get a Pre-Purchase pool inspection. It might surprise you to know that a lot of the calls we receive for pool leaks and repairs are from people who have recently purchased a home with a pool and are noticing after the fact that something isn’t right. We want to make sure your new purchase is set for fun not finding and funding leaks!

Favourite place to eat on the Sunshine Coast?

Our all time favourite place to eat on the Sunshine Coast is Spirit House in Yandina, it never fails to impress.

What do you enjoy doing on the weekends?

When we aren’t detecting leaks we love to watch our boys play rugby and are proud sponsors of the Noosa Dolphins Rugby Union Club. Brendan is a bit of a whiz in the kitchen and loves trying out new recipes, we also enjoy travelling, camping and Kirrily loves to spend time out and about on her horses.
