So just how exactly does leak detection work?

Our team is equipped with state of the art electronic leak detection systems. These machines pick up sound waves made by leaks and transmits the site where the leak is coming to the plumber. Different leaks have different sounds and frequencies depending on the pressure of the pipes and when a sound is registered it is transmitted at a higher frequency for our plumbers to interpret.

There are different factors that can affect the sound a leak makes, these include the water pressure, what the pipe is made of, soil type and composition as well as surface cover and how deep the pipe is underground. After a leak is determined, to pinpoint the exact location our technicians move the device over the direction of the pipe and listen for where the sound is strongest.

If you suspect you have a leak but are unsure, you can check around your house by walking through each room and listening for a pressurised whining, starting from the bottom floor first. Soft patches in your backyard can also be a potential sign for an underground leak as well as water damage to infrastructure.

Early detection of hidden water leaks can greatly reduce the potential costs that so often come with the burden of damaged pipes, spoiled surrounds, structures and expensive water bills. North Brisbane residents, you can be rest assured that when you choose National Plumbing to carry out leak detection in your home or business, you are in the best of hands with our skilled team.
