Leak Detection

Leak Detection refers to the non-invasive detection of leaks on oil/gas/under floor central heating pipe-work and plumbing pipe-work from baths/showers and appliances.

Traditionally to locate a leak in any of the aforementioned areas, a plumber would often resort to strip-out in the area he suspects the leak maybe located. Very often this is not where the leak actually is, and so the strip-out continues until the leak is found. In the process extensive damage is done to the building structure both by the excavation required to try to find the leak and in the continuing water damage as the leak remains ongoing – the result of both is huge expense and inconvenience for the customer.

Glenbeigh Fire & Flood utilises technical expertise coupled with specialist equipment to locate leaks accurately. This quick deployment saves time and therefore money.

Techniques

Acoustic

Use of sensitive microphones to enhance the sound of a leak on pressurised pipe-work such as mains supply, hot/cold mains feed and central heating pipes.

Endoscope

A specialist viewing tool used in places that cannot be seen by the naked eye, most commonly used for leaks suspected underneath baths or shower-trays, it is also particularly useful for cavity inspections and looking into service voids.

Tracer Gas

A mix of 95% Nitrogen and 5% Hydrogen gas used when difficulty is experienced in locating leaks i.e. those too big or small for acoustic detection.

Benefits

  • Quick detection of leak.
  • Excavation work is minimised.
  • Minimal disruption to the policyholder.
