Under Ground Leak Detection
Leak Detection using Hydrogen Gas as a Tracer Gas
The Hydrogen gas method is used to trace underground water leaks. This method uses a tracer gas that is injected into the water pipe line at a low concentration of Hydrogen (5%) and Nitrogen (95%). Hydrogen is the lightest of all gases and always rises to the surface, it even penetrates through concrete surfaces. The actual locating is done with a detector that only detects Hydrogen which gives the area of the leak.
Detect A Leak only uses the Hydrogen Sensitor Detector, the oldest , the fastest and most trusted name in Hydrogen detection.
Is Hydrogen really safe?
Hydrogen (5%) when diluted with Nitrogen (95%) is an inert gas, meaning it is non-toxic and
non-volatile. Humans already have lots of both in our bodies. Standard gas mixes of H5/N5 are available. It is actually a shielding gas in welding, which keeps the weld clean and dry.
Water leak detection
Water leak detection is done using one or a combination of equipment: –
- Thermal Imaging (infrared Scanning)
- Hydrogen Gas detection
- Ground Microphones
- Electronic Listening Pens (amplifier)
- Damp Meters
- Noise Correlation
- Pipe Location
DO YOU HEAR WATER RUNNING EVEN WHEN EVERYTHING IS TURNED OFF?
YOU PROBABLY HAVE A WATER LEAK
Here’s how to confirm whether there is a leak on your property…
- Turn off all your taps and toilet inlets to make sure that there is no water running.
- Check your water meter to see if it is turning.
- If the meter is turning, there is a water leak and you need a leak detection to be done.
- Call Detect A Leak to come in and find your leak.
When there is a water leak, you are paying for something that you are not using.
This will cost you tens or even hundreds of dollars a month.
