When a pressurized pipe leaks, it will cause a vibration at the leak, and then that vibration will travel along the length of the pipe. As it gets further away from the origin of the leak, the vibration starts to diminish. In the past, it could be difficult to detect the leak origin with these types of pipes. However, using acoustic leak detection can make it much faster and easier. This can result in faster repairs and less lost water.

Our Plumbers Are Equipped with the Latest Acoustic Leak Detection Equipment.
There are a number of different types of microphones that can be used to help with leak detection. Diagnostic microphones are highly sensitive and they can pick up even the faintest of vibrations. They can determine whether the leak is behind a wall, beneath a paved surface, such as a driveway, and anywhere else on the property. They work well for residential properties, commercial properties, and even for fire services. They can find leaks in walls, in the ceiling, or in the floor.
In addition, there are ground microphones available that are even more sensitive than the diagnostic microphones. They provide detailed readings that the expert can then use to pinpoint the source of the leak. Some of these types of microphones have special attachments that are for use with different surfaces.
