What is Leak Detection ?

Leak detection is to discover where a liquid or gas has escaped from a hole or crack in a pipe.

The need for leak detection has become more popular today as the methods are non destructive causing little or no damage to properties. Plumbers, insurance companies and commercial businesses all use professional leak detection engineers to find their leaks. Hidden leaks can be difficult to find causing damage, costly repairs and high water bills but leak detection will find the leak saving on expense and water damage.

Leak detection is a skilled profession requiring engineers to have many years experience in plumbing and heating. Engineers are trained to use advanced leak detection equipment and how to interpret their findings.

Inspection cameras, protimeter mms damp meter survey kits, pressure gauges both hydraulic and digital and salts diagnostics kits all form part of leak detection equipment used by engineers. The engineers will choose the appropriate testing and inspection process to find leaks and usually use a variety of methods to accurately locate the leak.

Thermal Imaging Leak Detection is the use of infra cameras that can look at large areas highlighting the warmer and colder surface areas providing evidence of where the leak is originating.
