Water Leak Detection

Water leaks on metered services and pipework can be very expensive, not only for the additional water usage recorded by the meter but for structural or cosmetic damage that may occur. When a pressurised pipe has a leak a vibration is created at varying frequencies around the exit point. This audible frequency travels through the length of the pipeline dissipating over the distance and also transferring to other adjacent pipes causing potential difficulties in location. At Utility ID we have a highly sensitive Acoustic head unit and ground microphone that are designed to not only listen to the noise being emitted but choose from a range of frequency options to eliminate misleading feedback and help pinpoint the problem area. By pinpointing the leaks, location costs can be further minimised by reducing the amount of area needing to be excavated and the amount of pipework that needs to be repaired or replaced.
