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…

  1. Turn off all your taps and toilet inlets to make sure that there is no water running.
  2. Check your water meter to see if it is turning.
  3. If the meter is turning, there is a water leak and you need a leak detection to be done.
  4. 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.
