Using the latest technology, we are able to isolate the location of the leak and therefore eliminate any unnecessary and costly digging.
The Gas (H2) Method is based on the injection of a low concentration hydrogen gas into the leakage object. Hydrogen gas penetrates leakages more easily than any other medium. Hydrogen gas rises, and even penetrates materials as dense as concrete. H2 is the chemical formula for Hydrogen – the lightest of all gases.
Ground Microphone combines a new, high sensitivity sensor with proven ease of use, enabling leaks to be detected over a greater distance, and background noise to be more easily suppressed, than with conventional sounding equipment. A hand-held probe is used on fittings or in soft ground conditions. Confirming the leak location is essential to ensure that excavation is accurately targeted. It also speeds up the repair of the leak.
Using electro – magnetic pulses we are able to locate underground pipes and cables used for water, gas, power and telecommunications.
Flex Rods and Sonde
Many underground services do not contain any conductive material. This makes traditional line location methods redundant. With the use of a conductive tracer rod, we are able to feed into a range of previously untraceable underground services and locate them. These includes sewer and storm water drains made from PVC, concrete or vitreous clay. The sonde is attached to the end of the tracing rod in order to locate the exact location of the rod. This assists in finding breaks and blockages in pipes or conduits.
