    Challenges of Commercial Leak Detection

    Complex Building Structures

    Commercial properties often feature intricate plumbing systems, multiple floors, and concealed pipework, making leak detection a considerable challenge. Our technicians are extensively trained to navigate these complexities. We employ specialised techniques to pinpoint leaks with unparalleled accuracy.

    We understand that downtime can severely impact your business operations and bottom line. Our non-invasive methods allow us to locate leaks without causing extensive damage. Additionally, these techniques wont cause prolonged disruptions to your daily operations.

    Advanced Leak Detection Techniques

    Acoustic Leak Detection

    Our state-of-the-art ground microphones and noise correlation software can detect even the faintest sounds of leaks. Enabling us to pinpoint their exact location with remarkable precision. This method is particularly effective for locating leaks in buried pipes, walls, and hard-to-reach areas.

    Advanced infrared cameras can detect temperature variations caused by water leaks, making it easier to identify and locate leaks in walls, floors, and ceilings without causing any damage. This non-invasive approach is ideal for minimising disruptions in occupied buildings.

    By introducing an inert gas into your plumbing system, our specialised sensors can detect even the smallest gas escapes, allowing us to map out the exact location of leaks. This technique is particularly useful for locating leaks in complex or inaccessible areas.

    Industry-Specific Commercial Leak Detection Solutions

    The accuracy of leak detection methods can be influenced by various factors, such as:

    pipe material, size, depth, and soil conditions.

    Accurate pipeline mapping and record-keeping are essential for successful leak location. This is because they provide crucial information about the pipeline’s layout and characteristics.
