Leak Detection Techniques
Infrared leak-detection method- Our experts use the infrared light technique to see beneath the floors and through the walls. Ultrasonic detection- This is a sound technology used to measure variation & sound loss in between pipes; this helps to detect the leakage source.Video camera detection- This a leak inspection method used often by our plumbing experts. In this method, a video camera is brought down to the pipes where photos & videos can be used to show the source of the leak. The images obtained from the exercise helps the homeowner to understand the state of the problem which eases the repair options.Smoke detection- This is the final option used for detecting leak sources. Clean & harmless smoke is pumped into the piping system which eventually escapes at the source of the problem. This allows the plumbing experts to find and seal the leak.
