Water escaping from a pipe makes a noise. This noise can be magnified if the system is drained down and the water replaced with air. Either way, our acoustic microphones can pick up this sound. 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 image on the right shows one of the types of acoustic microphone we use in day to day leak detection services.
We pride ourselves on using the very latest leak detection techniques to locate and resolve problems, this ensures the minimum amount of disruption to you and your home.
