Pipe Leak Detector
Professional plumbers would use a pipe leak detector when locating a leak. Here’s why. When a pipe in your house clogs, it puts a whole lot of pressure on your plumbing system. The pressure reaches its threshold and pipes expand, eventually bursting.
Water pressure is impeded when foreign materials find their way down your drains. Think fats and oils down the kitchen sink or hair and other foreign products down the shower and toilet.
Depending on the pressure coming through the pipes, the outcomes of corroded or damaged pipes might be more akin to a water leak rather than a more severe burst. If you have a higher water bill than average, or if your water meter is registering usage when no one is home, chances are you have leaks in your pipes.
While your mind might automatically veer inside the home, we can’t forget about external piping, too. The rapid growth of tree roots in a damp environment like a water pipe can quickly hinder a pipe’s flow, causing a pressure increase which eventually leads to a burst. The minuscule hair-like roots infiltrate pipe work and grow quickly, resulting in a tangled mess of debris that impedes flow.
Acoustic leak detection is a method of finding leaks in pressurized systems by using sound. It is often used to find leaks in pipelines and other types of tubing. The principle behind acoustic leak detection is that a leak will cause a change in the pressure of the watering system, which will create a sound that can be detected with special equipment. Acoustic water leak detection can be used to find leaks that are too small to be detected by other methods, such as visual inspection.
One of the most common causes of burst pipes is cold weather… however here in Australia, it’s seldom the cause.
Burst Pipe Detection and Repair
We deal with burst pipe detection and repair, seriously.
Have you ever seen one of those videos online, where a self-proclaimed handyman decides to fix his own leaky pipe, only for it to burst in his face? This is usually when the clips cut out – but what happens after the explosion? Well, if the water isn’t turned off at the mains, it won’t take long before enough water comes flooding out to fill the entire floor.
Even if you can get to the mains in time, the damage that can be done to the pipework can often be pretty extensive. Every single one of the pipes within our homes is subjected to pressure – otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to transport water from one place to another, but if that pressure gets a little too much to bear, it’s not uncommon for leaks to occur.
If left untreated, this liquid exposure could soon start to take its toll on the outside of pipes, causing them to rust. It’s not just a burst water pipe that can suffer damage, there’s also the risk of wood warping – and if your pipes are located within walls, it won’t take long for dampness to start forming.
