Water Leak Detection – How to find a water leak.

If you suspect you have a water leak and want to make sure, Plan B Plumbing Solutions has the latest leak detection technology to help you locate the water leak so it doesn’t continue to cause damage.

With our state-of-the-art water leak detection equipment, we have everything required to locate even the smallest of water leaks.

If you suspect that you have a water leak, it is important to take immediate action to minimize damage and prevent further waste of water. Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Locate the source of the leak: Look for signs of water damage, such as water stains, mold or mildew, or pools of water around your home. Check the water meter, if the meter is moving while all the water appliances are off, you may have a leak.
  2. Turn off the water supply: If you can locate the source of the leak, turn off the water supply to that area of the home. This will help prevent further damage and waste of water.
  3. Check for a water shut-off valve: If you can’t locate the source of the leak, or if you can’t turn off the water supply, check for a water shut-off valve near your home. This valve is typically located near the street, and it controls the water supply to your entire home.
  4. Document the damage: Take photographs of any damage caused by the leak, and document the date and time of the leak. This information can be useful when making an insurance claim.
  5. Keep an eye on your water bill: Keep an eye on your water

Using non-invasive sound and thermal water leak detection technologies, we can locate and repair the water leak quickly. Even the smallest of water leaks can be detected.

Thermal imaging water leak detection

Thermal Imaging Leak Detection

From $350

Thermal imaging water leak detection is a great way to detect water leaks. It focuses on the strategies of identifying moisture intrusions.

Thermal or infrared energy is light that is not visible to the human eye because its wavelength is too long to be detected.

Thermal imaging cameras produce images of invisible infrared or “heat” radiation. Based on temperature differences between objects, thermal imaging produces a clear image.

It’s the simple, non intrusive way to locate water leakage concerns before they become a real problem !!

Acoustic Pipe Location Leak Detection

From $350

Plastic lines cannot be located by the classical electromagnetic method because they do not conduct electricity.

The acoustic method of pipeline location uses a different principle: the lines transmit mechanical vibration better than the surround- ing earth. If suitable vibrations are applied to the line, they are transmitted along its length and through the earth to its surface, and can then be located there with an ground microphone and receiver with headsets according to the water leak detection principle.

As with water leak detection, the line is in the place where the greatest intensity is found.

Tracer Gas Leak Detection

From $350

This device was developed especially for water leak detection on underground pipes by using tracer gas.

Using tracer gas is a tried and tested method of pinpointing leaks. It can be used in gas and water distribution networks, pipelines in buildings, heating systems, pressurized communication cables, gas-filled high voltage power lines and landfill sites sealed with double membrane layers.

Detecting gas leaks by tracer gas involves feeding a mixture of 95% nitrogen (carrier gas) and 5% hydrogen into the pipelines or other equipment/products being tested. The hydrogen escapes through the leak and is detected by the highly sensitive, specialisedsensor.

The low amount of hydrogen (just 5%) means that this method is safe: the gas is incombustible as per ISO 10156 thanks to the use of nitrogen as the carrier gas. It is non-toxic and therefore also permitted for use in drinking water networks, as well as non-corrosive.
