How does our systems work?
We use sound to trace the position of a leak. we now also have a option to use Gas. We acquired infrared Camera equipment to find leaks on hot water , and also a digital Flir moisture meter
We need the following for sound equipment.
Make of pipe, length of pipe, diameter of the pipe. This is fed into the computer and sound recordings are made of the sound in the pipe wall.
The speed of the sound in the pipe wall is determined by the thickness of the wall and diameter this is calculated and the position of the leak is given.
See diagram below.
The peak is the point where the leak is crisp sound not much noise in the back
Bigger leak more noise around the leak

For Gas we need access to a tap and a shut of at the Muncipal meter.
Seba KMt Hi Lux Gas detector system.
Gas used is Forming gas 95/5 % mix The Gas is not harmful on its own and quantities used.
Gas is pumped into the network and the point of exit is traced with the gas detector. although here the make size etc is not needed it plays a role in the amount of gas used and cost.
