Water Management typically completes leak detection programs in two phases. During the first phase, the entire system is surveyed for "leak sounds." When a sound is heard, the location is noted as a potential leak site. During the second phase, locations where leaks are suspected are investigated further.
When necessary, Water Management uses a computerized leak correlator that works on sonic transmission principles to pinpoint the exact location of the leak. The correlator eliminates the need for extensive hit-or-miss excavation, and the unnecessary destruction of expensive pavement. Water Management has an in-house leak detection team and the necessary equipment to conduct leak detection programs.
Our equipment includes the Gutermann Aquascan 610 Leak Noise Correlator, acoustic ground microphones, and Fuji Ultrasonic Flow Meters.
