Advanced Technologies Used in Leak Detection

Acoustic Leak Detection

Acoustic leak detection involves using sensitive microphones and listening devices to detect the sound of water escaping from pipes. This method is effective for pinpointing leaks in both water mains and service lines.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging cameras detect temperature variations caused by leaks. This non-invasive method is useful for detecting leaks in walls, floors, and underground pipes.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. This technology is useful for detecting leaks and assessing subsurface conditions without excavation.

CCTV Inspections

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) inspections involve using a camera to visually inspect the inside of pipelines and sewer lines. This method helps identify cracks, blockages, and leaks.


Correlators are used to locate leaks by measuring the time it takes for sound waves to travel between two sensors placed along a pipeline. This method is highly accurate for detecting leaks in large diameter pipes.

Tracer Gas Detection

Tracer gas detection involves injecting a non-toxic gas into the pipeline and using specialized equipment to detect the gas escaping from leaks. This method is effective for pinpointing leaks in difficult-to-access areas.

Smart Metering

Implementing smart meters to monitor water usage and detect anomalies that indicate leaks. This technology helps identify leaks early and prevent water wastage.
