Technologies used for Leak Detection include:
- Pipe Probe
The Pipe Probe is one of the most multifaceted tools in the leak detection industry. The Pipe Probe is the result of combining a soil probe and a magnetic contact mic into one versatile tool. When lines leak and water rushes out of the break in the line, the pipe itself vibrates at the location of the leak. The vibrations are carried throughout the pipe and can be noticed at distant points, such as fittings. The traveling vibrations are made audible by the technology inside the Pipe Probe.
- ACOUSTIC LISTENING DEVICE
We use acoustic listening devices to provide accurate positioning of all types of hidden leaks, including those found commonly in fire services, water distribution systems and hot and cold water systems.
- hydrophones (pool scope)
We use both the Poolscope and PipeMic for listening and locating leaks at drains, lights, fittings, skimmers, side suctions, structural cracks. The PipeMic allows us to precisely locate leaks in lines from 1/2 inch to 10 inches, at spa venturi’s skimmer lines, etc.
We also use underwater hydrophones or pool scopes to detect water leaks.
- Deck Plate
Our Deck Plate with advanced noise filtering technology makes listening through concrete, brick, rock or any other solid surface either combining the deck plate with our pressure rig or just listening under normal pressure, will pinpointing a leak through solid surfaces. When combined with our pressure rig, the DeckPlate can listen deeper through concrete and compacted soil.
- Soil Test Probe
The Soil Test Probe is a mechanical instrument which enables the operator to determine the condition of the sub-soil without core samples.
- Frequency location and sound hybrid
The Frequency location and sound hybrid (F.L.A.S.H) Leak Locating System finds leaks from within lines and transmits a signal at a precise location. The FLASH unit can be used to locate leaks, separations, etc, in swimming pools, plumbing, and water mains, It can be used in lines ranging from 1 to 60 inches. The FLASH can also be used for underground line location.
- Hydrostatic line testing
Our technicians are trained to perform hydrostatic pressure testing, which means putting greater than normal working pressure into your plumbing to make sure it is safe and free of leaks. With hydrostatic pressure testing, water is used rather than air because water cannot be compressed as much as air, so if there is a leak or failure of the piping system there is no great explosion.
