Plumbers use the latest leak detection technology

Our qualified plumbers in Adelaide use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that your leaks are detected quickly and efficiently. Leaks can often be hard to find, but skilled plumbers will use the latest technology to locate the source of the leak and then repair it quickly and efficiently.

Plumbers understand the importance of detecting leaks early and preventing further damage to your property, which is why most offer a comprehensive leak detection service that will give you peace of mind. Some of the leak detection technology available to plumbers includes:

Thermal imaging

Plumbers know that there are a lot of things that they need to be able to do to be successful. They need to be able to fix pipes, install fixtures, and troubleshoot problems. They also need to be able to find hidden leaks.

One of the best ways to find hidden leaks is with thermal imaging. Thermal imaging is a technology that uses infrared energy to create an image of an object. It can be used to detect leaks in pipes because it can see through walls and other objects to identify hot and cold spots.

This means that you can see where there are potential leaks. Thermal imaging is an excellent tool for plumbers because it can help them find hidden leaks in hard-to-reach places.

Hydrogen tracer gas

Hydrogen tracer gas is a colourless, odourless gas that is safe to use and easy to detect. When injected into a plumbing system, it quickly disperses and fills the entire system. Any leaks will show up as a change in the hydrogen concentration. There are several ways to inject hydrogen tracer gas into a plumbing system.

The most common is to use a portable injection system. This system consists of a tank of hydrogen tracer gas and a hand-held injector. The injector is connected to the plumbing system and injects the gas into the system. Another way to inject hydrogen tracer gas is to use a permanent injection system.

This system is installed in the plumbing system and injects gas regularly. This is the best way to find small leaks that might not be detectable with a portable injection system. Once the hydrogen tracer gas has been injected into the plumbing system, it's time to start looking for leaks. The easiest way to do this is with a hydrogen detector.

There are several hydrogen detectors, but the most common is the portable detector. This detector is hand-held and can be moved around the plumbing system to find leaks.Once a leak has been found, it can be repaired, and the plumbing system can be re-injected with hydrogen tracer gas. This process can be repeated to find and fix all the leaks in a plumbing system.

The suppliers & brands we trust

Radio pipe location

Leaks can occur anywhere in your plumbing system but are most commonly found in buried pipes. When a leak occurs in a buried pipe, it can be challenging to locate without specialised equipment. Plumbers use radio pipe location equipment to quickly and accurately find leaks in buried pipes. This equipment is designed to emit a radio signal that can be detected by leak detection equipment.

Hydrogen pressure testing

Hydrogen pressure testing is a way to test the pressure of water in your pipes without using a traditional water pressure gauge. Instead, a small amount of hydrogen gas is introduced into the water. The gas then rises to the top of the water and creates a bubble.

The size of the bubble will depend on the pressure of the water. The higher the pressure, the larger the bubble will be. This is a quick and easy way to test your water's pressure without using a traditional water pressure gauge.

Drain CCTV

Plumbers can use drain CCTV technology to quickly and accurately locate leaks and fix them fast. Leaks can occur anywhere in your plumbing system, but they're often hard to find. That's where drain CCTV comes in. Plumbers insert a camera into your drains and pipes to look closely at what's happening inside. This allows plumbers to pinpoint the exact location of the leak, so we can get to work fixing it quickly.

Emergency leak detection experts

Water leaks and gas leak can be both dangerous and cause extensive damage to your property and can be very costly to repair. The majority of experienced plumbers will offer emergency leak detection services and will be able to quickly find and fix your water leaks.

They use the latest technology and equipment to find leaks and will send a plumber to your property within hours. If you have a water leak, don't wait to get it fixed. Call an emergency leak detection expert today, and we'll send a plumber to your property as soon as possible.
