Water Leak Detected! – advanced digital and electro-acoustic technology 

High tech water leak detection equipment is extremely effective at finding water leaks. The use of this type of equipment eliminates the need for excessive digging and damage to walls when locating invisible water leaks.

The Ex Tec Snooper Mini unit

The water pipe system is flushed with tracer gas. The tracer gas seeps out through the ground or wall where ever there are water leaks. An Ex Tec Snooper Mini unit is then used to detect or sniff for the presence of the leaking tracer gas.

The Stethophon 04 Acoustic unit
The Stethophon 04 acoustic listening device is then used to pinpoint location of the tracer gas leaks.The escaping tracer gas creates vibrations as it exits the hole in the leaking water pipe. By tuning into the frequency of these vibrations and the use of noise cancelling earphones, the exact position of the water leak is found.
