Underground leaks are a serious concern for property owners, as they can lead to extensive damage and costly repairs if not detected early. At AnyLeak, we specialize in non-invasive underground leak diagnosis, utilizing advanced technology to identify and resolve leaks with minimal disruption. Below, we present three examples of different types of underground leaks and how our non-invasive methods can effectively address them.

Example 1: Water Supply Line Leak

Situation

A homeowner in Vancouver noticed a significant increase in their water bill despite no apparent water usage changes. Upon further inspection, there were no visible signs of water leakage within the home. Suspecting an underground leak in the water supply line, they contacted AnyLeak for assistance.

Diagnosis

We employed Acoustic Leak Detection to locate the source of the leak. This method uses sensitive microphones and ground probes to listen for the sound of water escaping from the pipes. The distinct acoustic signals generated by the leak were detected and analyzed, pinpointing the exact location of the leak beneath the lawn.

Solution

Once the leak was located, we utilized Trenchless Pipe Repair techniques to fix the issue. This method involves inserting a new pipe lining into the existing pipe, creating a seamless, durable barrier without the need for extensive digging. The entire process was completed quickly, restoring the homeowner’s water supply and preventing further water loss.

Example 2: Sewer Line Leak

Situation

A commercial property owner in Surrey experienced frequent blockages and foul odors emanating from their plumbing system. The property had an extensive underground sewer line network, and traditional methods of locating the problem were deemed too disruptive and costly.

Diagnosis

Our team used Infrared Thermography to diagnose the issue. Infrared cameras detect temperature variations caused by leaking wastewater, which creates a temperature differential in the surrounding soil. This non-invasive method allowed us to visualize the leak’s location without excavation.

Solution

After identifying the leak, we applied Pipe Bursting technology to replace the damaged section of the sewer line. This technique involves pulling a new pipe through the existing one while simultaneously breaking the old pipe apart. The new pipe is durable and resistant to future leaks, ensuring long-term reliability for the commercial property.

Example 3: Irrigation System Leak

Situation

A large agricultural farm in Abbotsford noticed uneven crop growth and waterlogged areas in their fields. Suspecting a leak in their underground irrigation system, they required a solution that would minimize disruption to their farming operations.

Diagnosis

We utilized Electronic Leak Detection to locate the leak. This method involves detecting changes in the electrical resistance of the ground caused by moisture from the leaking irrigation pipes. The precise location of the leak was identified without disturbing the crops.

Solution

We employed Spot Repair techniques to fix the leak. This involved excavating a small area around the leak site and replacing the damaged section of the irrigation pipe. The repair was completed swiftly, ensuring minimal disruption to the farm’s irrigation schedule and preventing further water wastage.
