Tools Used for Leak Detection

Home » Tools Used for Leak Detection

Leaks are one of the most common – and most destructive – plumbing issues. Beyond the wasted water and damage to the pipes themselves, leaking can also lead to the growth of mold and mildew as well as the breakdown of the structure around the leak. The professionals at Pow-R Mole Trenchless Solutions understand that this is especially true for leaks that go undetected for extended periods.

This is why leak detection is so essential. The process requires the expertise of a professional who will utilize special tools and trenchless equipment to locate a leak. Take a look at the special leak detection tools at our disposal.

Leak Detection Tools

Among the trenchless supplies needed for addressing a leak are the tools needed to detect those leaks. Often expensive and difficult to use, these tools need an experienced operator for proper use. We utilize:

  • Soil probes
  • Video inspection equipment
  • Listening discs

Soil Probes

Leaks that happen in the water main and sewer line are some of the most problematic as they generally run underground and go completely unnoticed for long periods of time. A soil probe is a trenchless technology that provides the ability to listen for pressurized leaks through rock, dirt and grass.

Video Inspection Equipment

These small video cameras are mounted on long cables that are flexible enough to be inserted into pipes and faucets. This enables pinpointing the source of a leak that may otherwise be nearly impossible to locate from the outside.

Listening Discs

These are audio equipment that amplifies the sound of leaking water through walls, cabinets, and other furnishings. When placed against a surface, leaks can be heard through the attached headphones.
