Non-Invasive Leak Detection
Having state-of-the-art equipment for leak detection saves time and money. We are able to quickly find the leak, cutting down on man-hours as well as eliminating destruction of your home, business, or property—which then also becomes a necessary repair. Instead, we use compressed air, probes, and listening devises. We pump air or helium into your pipes to isolate the leak. Then we use a listening device which accurately pinpoints the hiss of the air as it leaks out. In cases with a stubborn or very deep leak, we have probes that are able to get in close.
