The Acoustic Microphone is a very sensetive device that detects the noise of the leak escaping from the pipe. This noise can be magnified if the system is drained down and the water replaced with air, which creates a very distinctive noise. Initially this can simply confirm the existence of a leak, and its approximate position. Further work, including calibrating the sound from 2 different positions, can pinpoint its precise location. The Acoustic Microphone can be used on any type of pipe leak, including central heating, underfloor heating, mains, hot and cold.
