Underground leak detection in multi-residential and large building complexes 

At Find Leak Detection, our AWR200 with acoustic equipment is the primary method to find leaks in commercial sites and unit complexes — it’s a tried-and-tested method of locating leaks efficiently.

The AWR200’s method is a fast to set up, easy to work with and most cost-effective way for underground leak detection services for commercial and residential sites. Its improved accuracy allows for more prompt detection over more traditional methods of leak detection,  and less invasive damage to occur while trying to find the leak — which altogether can minimise repairs and cleanup costs. 

Here’s how the AWR200 method works:

  1. Air slugs are added into a live water service, feeding the slugs towards the leak. 
  2. When the air slug reaches the leak, The unit makes a distinct change in operation to alert our technician. The air slugs are comparable to underwater bubble noises, evolving to a spitting sound the closer it gets to the leak.
  3. Once our technician notices the change, he adjusts the air flow and consistency to accurately track the direction of the leak using our Sewerin Aquaphon A200. We also may then drill holes in the ground to use our probe to accurately detect the location of the leak. 
  4. When we’ve confirmed the leak’s location, we’ll mark that with a crayon or paint to allow the plumber to attend to and repair it.

Our AWR200 in conjunction with the Aquaphon A200 is top-notch equipment, allowing us to block out surrounding noise and concentrate on the air slugs moving through the pipe to accurately locate the leak. Trust in Find Leak Detection and contact us today!
