How Do We Do It?

As a leak detection specialist company we use the best leak detection equipment available on the market today. Our experienced operator will assess the situation and choose which method will be the most suitable to locate the leak as quickly and accurately as possible. Often times it takes multiple methods to successfully locate hidden water leaks.

Two of the methods we use:

Acoustic leak detection is usually the first method we employ to locate a buried water line leak. Water escaping from a leak in a pipe, makes a noise. The greater the pressure typically, the louder the noise. We can also use compressed air to create a different noise that can assist with hearing the leak.

We start with determining where the water service line is on the property. We then perform a leak survey by walking the line listening with a super sensitive amplified microphone. We are looking for the area with the loudest noise – this is typically where the leak will be found.

Sometimes the acoustic method will not be successful for reasons such as traffic noise, wind, rain, unfavorable ground conditions or too small of a leak. In those cases we can employ tracer gas leak detection. Hydrogen tracer gas is a harmless, non-toxic, lighter-than-air gas. It can be safely injected into an empty pipe and will escape from the leak. It then makes its way to the surface following the path of least resistance. Once the tracer gas reaches the surface, we determine the location of the leak using a super sensitive gas detector tuned to specifically detect hydrogen.

The tracer gas we use is inert, non-toxic, non-combustible, completely safe and leaves no residue or deposit either in the pipes or on any surrounding material. It is composed of 5% Hydrogen and 95% Nitrogen.
