What is a 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 leaks. It assists 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.
