Leak Detection for Cork
Leak detection service for Cork city and county
Have the council informed you that your water usage is abnormally high, or that you are using a lot of water outside your business hours? This is probably due to leakage. Our leak detection service helps you quickly and accurately pinpoint problems at a reasonable cost. Some of our clients have spent a long time searching for the cause of a leak before they have asked us to come in and find it - this has cost them man hours, and in the meantime their water bill is getting large.
We provide a professional, fully compliant leak detection service for Cork, and nationwide too. You can get a free leak detection quotation from us here.
How we detect leaks
As part of our leak detection service we carry out the following procedures:
Most pipes leaking underground vibrate the earth around it. This vibration is picked up by the sensor of the ground microphone and converted into a sound signal. With many years of acoustic sounding experience we can pinpoint the exact location of the leak.
We use the market leading German made FAST M200 ground microphone to acoustically sound for leaks.
Sometimes it is not possible to use acoustics due to:
- noisy environment
- depth of pipe
- size of leak
In these circumstances we will replace the water in the pipe with an inert gas. The gas will escape from the break in the pipe and rise to the surface where it is detected using the FAST gas-check-H2.
