The term Leak Detection refers to the non-intrusive method where plumbing leaks are found by means of specialised water leak detecting devices.

Water leaks generate an acoustic vibration that we are able to locate by means of a Digital Acoustic Device.

Tracer gas is an inert gas that is introduced into the water or pool pipelines. The presence of any burst or leak will allow the gas to escape from the pipe system and make its way to the surface. The gas is detected by our highly sensitive locating devices indicating the locating of the leak.

Thermal imaging is another great tool to locate water leak and can assist in locating hot and cold water leaks without any disruption to the water system.

CCTV camera inspections allow the technicians to survey and diagnose hidden pipe systems without having to expose the lines.

When a pressurised water pipe leaks the water flows out which causes the pipe and surrounding material (mud, concrete tarmac) to vibrate. 



To accurately locate water pipes trace cables and to avoid damage to utilities and operators during excavations, it is essential to know the precise position of all utility services. Often the exact position of pipes and cables is unknown due to inaccurate or non-existent network plans.

If a water pipe is not under pressure or the noise from the leak cannot easily be heard then Tracer gas can be a very useful technique to locate water leaks .


Thermal imaging cameras are a very useful instrument in the water leak detectors’ tool box, and it offers a quick, non-intrusive method to locate water leaks and trace the route of hot water pipes. Thermal Imaging Cameras can also be used for HVAC, Electrical, Mechanical and Building Thermal Surveys.
