Leaks Ireland pinpointed this on an old unused lead service pipe in Glasnevin, Dublin.

Main ways to 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.

Tracer Gas

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.
