Leak Detection


Our experienced technicians use the latest acoustic leak detection equipment, listening for the noise created by water leaving the pipe. Once we can trace the trench line in which the water pipe has been laid, we listen directly above this line for the noise that is being created and usually successfully mark the exact location of your water leak. Depending on the size, depth and material of the water pipe and leak, this method enables us to potentially detect the target leak very quickly.

The hydrogen/nitrogen tracer gas is introduced into the pipe with the suspected leak using a cylinder of gas. The tracer gas used to find water leaks is a mixture of hydrogen (5%) and nitrogen (95%) making it completely safe to use in drinking water supplies being both nontoxic and non-corrosive.
