Leak Detection Process

The process for leak detection can vary depending on the type of leak and the location of the leak. However, there are some general steps that are typically involved in leak detection.

  1. Inspection: The first step is to inspect the area where the leak is suspected. This may involve looking for signs of water damage, such as wet spots, mold, or mildew.
  2. Pressure testing: If the inspection does not reveal the source of the leak, the next step may be to pressure test the pipes. This involves pressurizing the pipes and then listening for leaks.
  3. Visual inspection: If the pressure test does not reveal the source of the leak, the next step may be to visually inspect the pipes. This may involve using a borescope or other camera to look inside the pipes.
  4. Chemical testing: If the visual inspection does not reveal the source of the leak, the next step may be to use chemical testing. This involves injecting a chemical into the pipes and then looking for signs of the chemical at the suspected leak location.
  5. Instrumental detection: If the chemical testing does not reveal the source of the leak, the next step may be to use instrumental detection. This involves using specialized equipment to detect leaks, such as ultrasonic leak detectors or ground microphones.

Once the source of the leak has been identified, the next step is to repair the leak. The type of repair that is needed will vary depending on the type of leak and the location of the leak.
