The Fundamentals of Leak Detection

Posted on: September 29th, 2011 No Comments

The process of how you go about detecting a leak has changed a lot in the last few years. What used to be a game of pot luck and chance is now far more refined than ever before. Leak detection was once a process that was more about brute force than anything else – you just kept digging or drilling holes where you expected the leak to be. This is a time consuming practice and one that delivers pretty poor results overall.

The fundamentals of leak detection are that a leak exists and you need to find the best and least messy way to find the leak. It’s almost the same as finding the path of least resistance to a solution – you don’t need to make things more complicated than they already are if possible.

So when ADI engineers are working on finding a leak they stick to a simple process that embraces the fundamentals of professional leak detection – find the leak in the most non-invasive way possible. They also don’t work on gut instinct or hunches about where the leak might be. Instead our engineers use a wide range of advanced equipment that allows us to find each leak with pinpoint accuracy – usually to within an inch or so of the actual source.

For our customers this means that we spend less time onsite with you, we don’t have to do any digging or drilling to find the leak and most importantly we work as efficiently as possible for you. Some less reputable plumbers will take as long as possible to find your leak so that they can drive your bill up. Not so with ADI – we find over 90% of leaks within one working day.

Why do we work so efficiently? Because we’re ethical, honest and prompt in everything we do. We have a constantly growing customer base and we’re busy making sure that all of our customers receive an equally high level of service – we simply don’t have time to dawdle around poking holes in walls!
