Introduction to Leak Investigation Services

Leaks, whether in water, air, or other systems, can lead to significant issues, including structural damage, increased utility bills, and health hazards. Proper leak investigation is essential to identify and address these issues promptly. AnyLeak offers specialized leak investigation services tailored to residential, commercial, and municipal clients across Greater Vancouver.

Importance of Leak Investigation

Cost Savings

Early detection of leaks can prevent costly repairs and reduce utility bills. By addressing leaks promptly, property owners can save significant amounts of money in the long run.

Structural Integrity

Leaks can compromise the structural integrity of buildings and infrastructures. Identifying and repairing leaks early helps maintain the longevity and safety of structures.

Health and Safety

Leaks can lead to mold growth and other health hazards. Proper investigation and remediation ensure a safe living and working environment.

Environmental Conservation

Detecting and repairing leaks helps conserve water and other resources, contributing to environmental sustainability.

Advanced Technologies Used in Leak Investigation

Acoustic Leak Detection

Acoustic leak detection uses sensitive microphones and listening devices to detect the sound of water escaping from pipes. This method is effective for pinpointing leaks in 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)

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.

Steps in Our Leak Investigation Process

Initial Consultation

Our leak investigation process begins with an initial consultation to understand the specific needs and concerns of our clients. We gather information about the property and any signs of leaks.

Comprehensive Inspection

We conduct a thorough inspection of the property using a combination of advanced technologies to identify potential leaks. This includes visual inspections, thermal imaging, acoustic detection, and more.

Detailed Report

After the inspection, we provide a detailed report outlining the findings, including the location and severity of leaks. The report also includes recommendations for repair and preventive measures.

Repair and Remediation

Our team of skilled professionals performs the necessary repairs to address the identified leaks. We use high-quality materials and the latest techniques to ensure long-lasting solutions.

Preventive Maintenance

To prevent future leaks, we offer preventive maintenance services, including regular inspections and monitoring. This helps identify potential issues early and maintain the integrity of your property.

Case Studies: Successful Leak Investigation Projects

Residential Case Study: Hidden Plumbing Leak

In a residential property in Vancouver, we detected a hidden plumbing leak behind a wall using thermal imaging and acoustic detection. Our team quickly repaired the leak, preventing extensive water damage and mold growth.

Commercial Case Study: HVAC System Leak

At a commercial building in Surrey, we identified refrigerant leaks in the HVAC system. Our experts repaired the leaks, improving the system’s efficiency and reducing energy costs for the building owner.

Municipal Case Study: Water Main Leak

In Burnaby, we conducted a water main leak detection project using advanced acoustic technology. We located several leaks in the municipal water system, helping the city conserve water and reduce repair costs.

Infrastructure Case Study: Roadway Leak

In Richmond, we used ground penetrating radar to detect leaks beneath a roadway. Our team repaired the leaks, preventing further damage and ensuring the safety and longevity of the road.
