How Do Leak Detection Engineers Find A Leak?

Posted on: September 29th, 2011 No Comments

There’s a lot of work that goes into finding any interior or exterior leak on any property. Because the nature of how a leak starts and then progresses can be so complicated it takes some very sophisticated equipment to find the source of a leak. This is even more true if you’re dealing with an external leak which is probably buried under a layer of concrete and then several feet of earth.

ADI engineers are equipped to find any type of leak though and the wide range of state-of-the-art leak detection technology that we can deploy on each leak investigation is proof of our commitment to finding leaks for our customers as quickly as possible.
So for example if you look at underground or under floor leaks we have acoustic leak detectors that allow us to listen for and then pinpoint the exact location of a leak anywhere on your property. This means we can locate an external leak to within a few centimetres of the actual source.

Working on the interior of a property we can use thermal imaging cameras, the same acoustic leak detectors, nitrogen hydrogen leak tracing gas systems and moisture detectors to find the source of the leak. The thermal imaging cameras alone allow ADI engineers to find leaks that aren’t even obvious to a trained naked eye – we can quite literally see through your walls to find cold and damp patches behind them.

That’s what happens when you’re dealing with a team of professionals like ADI. We do our very best to provide you with a completely non-invasive leak detection investigation so your property is left exactly as we found it at the start of our investigation. And it’s a combination of extremely highly tech equipment and very advanced training which allows our engineers to do exactly that.
