These techniques for water leak detection can be combined or used in isolation depending on what is constructed over the service or how deep the service lies.

Acoustic Leak detection
Our acoustic leak detecting instruments allows us to localise the lowest consistent noise.It offers automatic noise reduction from intermittent interfering noises, like passing vehicles, people talking, and pedestrian footsteps. This means we can identify the source of leaks a lot quicker.

Correlator Leak detection
Leak correlators identify the acoustic frequency made by water escaping from a pipe. The correlator uses two sensors placed over the pipe length which detect the leak noise the noise of the water escaping from the leak and calculates the leaks location by comparing the delay in the signal reaching each sensor.

Tracer gas Leak detection
Our highly accurate method of helium leak testing allows us to determine a leakage point to within a few feet keeping excavation to a minimum. This method is useful for any size or type of underground pipe and does not leave any residue or require complete removal of product prior to testing. The gas mixture created is a food grade gas -

  • It is inert
  • It is odourless
  • It is tasteless
  • It is approved to go into potable drinking supply pipes
  • Drains, water mains, Grey water waste systems, Fire loops and Petroleum pipe lines
  • It will locate leaks in any material any diameter any length buried under any material
  • Gas tracer leak detection will find leaks even if the surface is concrete or asphalt.

Infrared thermal imaging Leak detection
The speed of using infrared, and the larger areas covered rapidly by an IR Camera, can save time and money by providing a faster, more efficient and more reliable survey. An IR camera can detect moisture located behind interior walls under the right conditions. The temperature difference created by the presence of moisture on the inside surface of a wall will appear differently than the surrounding area.

These techniques for water leak detection can be combined or used in isolation depending on what is constructed over the service or how deep the service lies.
