many good reasons to have our professionals check for water leaks such as avoiding
property damage, reducing your operating costs, account for noticeable water
losses and to avoid serious line breaks.
commonly occur in older properties. However, newer properties experience problems
as well. Factors such as severe climate changes, soil conditions and ground
movement and even poor construction can contribute to unexpected pipe damage
which, if left undetected can have detrimental and potentially costly side-effects.
detection is a necessary and vital component to water systems. Accurate
determination of the position of leaking water pipes within a supply system
and subsequent repair serves to save money and conserve water as well as
Water that is lost is money and energy wasted.
Conducting a leak detection survey generally involves a primary survey and
secondary survey. The primary survey investigates a suspect section of the
pipe system. The secondary survey pinpoints or discounts potential leakage
spots identified in the primary survey. This can potentially be a very time
consuming process because the survey must systematically check the whole
water leaks in pipes used to mean messy exploratory digging that was time consuming and expensive.
Our trained personnel use the most modern equipment and techniques to locate
potential and actual problems quickly and therefore cost-effectively.
New technology for commercial,
industrial and municipal pipe systems is being produced to automate the
primary portion of the leak detection process. The technology includes a
single unit comprising audible leak detection hardware teamed with a data
logger, radio transmitter and a long-life battery which is good for 10 or
more years. Multiple units are permanently installed at specific locations
in the water supply pipe system that continually monitor for sounds
characteristic to pipe leakage. When a unit detects sound that is indicative
of leakage, the onboard radio transmitter sends a signal to an above ground
receiver. Maintenance crews need only to drive about the survey area with
the receiver to identify problem spots where leaks are indicated. This
automated technology can significantly reduce the time involved to locate
