Water Leak Detection

As a property owner, you are of course invested in the care of your home or building. Starting with the facade, the interior decoration, down to the leaking taps, you want to make sure everything is in working order.

These are things you see and inspect every day.

But how about the things that are hidden from your sight?

When the problem is not only under the ground, but also embedded in concrete, it can be pretty tough to find the exact location yourself.

Leaks may start small and go undetected for some time.

Has your water bill suddenly gone up for no apparent reason? That can be indicative of water loss.

If you suspect a leak in your home or property, don’t panic.

Tracer Gas Leak Detection may just be the solution to your problem. This method of water leak detection is often used to identify large pipeline leaks. The method involves introducing pressurized gas through the pipes. The gas is then picked up by a sensor as it escapes through the leak, revealing its location.

The tracer gas detection method may be used for both gas and water leak detection.
