What is Leak Detection?
The term Leak Detection refers to the non intrusive method where plumbing leaks are found by means of specialised water leak detecting devices.
Water leaks generate an acoustic vibration that we are able to locate by means of a Digital Acoustic Device.
Tracer gas is an inert gas that is introduced into the water or pool pipe lines. The presence of any burst or leak will allow the gas to escape from the pipe system and make its way to the surface. The gas is detected by of our highly sensitive locating devices indicating the locating of the leak.
Thermal imaging is another great tool to locate water leak and can assist in locating hot and cold water leaks without any disruption to the water system.
CCTV camera inspections allows the technicians to survey and diagnose hidden pipe systems without having to expose the lines.

When a pressurised water pipe leaks the water flows out which causes the pipe and surrounding material (mud, concrete tarmac) to vibrate. This sound, or vibration, is transmitted along the pipe and through the surrounding material (ground borne water leak noise) which we pick up with our equipment.
Thermal imaging cameras are a very useful instrument in the water leak detectors’ tool box, and it offers a quick, non-intrusive method to locate water leaks and trace the route of hot water pipes. Thermal Imaging Cameras can also be used for HVAC, Electrical, Mechanical and Building Thermal Surveys.
