Leak Detection Equipment

How We Do It

As a leak detection specialist company we use the best leak detection equipment available on the market today.  Each vehicle carries this equipment and our experienced technicians will assess the situation and choose which method will be the most suitable to locate the leak as quickly and accurately as possible.

Some of the equipment we use includes:

Acoustic Listening & Correlation

Using incredibly sensitive microphones it’s possible to listen to pipes which ‘carry’ the noise of escaping water. By filtering out background noises it is possible to localise the noisiest part of a pipe system indicating the location of the leak.

Utility Trackers & Tracer Reels

We have purchased one of the very best tracer reels and pipe locators in the market, made by Sewerin the Utilitrack can operate at numerous frequencies, using the filter technology we can accurately track a pipe and be confident we aren’t tracking other utilities such as cables and drains.

Borescope Cameras

These are particularly useful for getting into tight corners to inspect pipes hidden behind pipe boxes, under floors, under shower trays and baths etc. They require a small hole to gain access.

Infrared Cameras

Infrared thermography is the science used to detect changes in surface temperatures. They make the invisible visible and are particularly good at locating leaks on underfloor heating systems and hot pipes buried with concrete slabs.

Tracer Gas

This is used to introduce an inert gas to the water pipe system, having drained down the system first. The molecular size of the Hydrogen and Nitrogen mix is far smaller than water, this means if water can escape then the gas can also escape.

Friendly staff, reliable service and not too pricey either. Could not recommend them enough!

I had almost lost hope of sorting the damp problem in my guest room. Lots of failed attempts with various companies, lots of sleepless nights. After some research, I found Water Loss Solutions, made an appointment and after the engineer arrived, he identified and fixed the issue within an hour. Friendly staff, reliable service and not too pricey either. Could not recommend them enough!
