Leak Detection

Every day underground pipes are subject to variety of abuse ranging from extreme weather conditions, unstable subsurface material, and improper installations to name a few.  In any case when a pipe breaks the result is always wasted water and lost revenue.  FSC Leak detection understands the severity of faulty pipes and utilizes state of the art acoustic sonar to pinpoint leaks using minimally invasive techniques. 

 

Traditional leak detection started out with acoustic ground microphones which were moved up and down a water main mixed with some guess work in hopes of pinpointing a leak through the sound of water flowing.  Leak detection has come a long way since ground mics, and now utilizes state of the art acoustic correlators and data loggers in order to pinpoint leaks on copper, ductile iron, cast iron, PVC, and AC pipes.   

 

Now with high tech correlators FSC’s Leak Technicians are able set up leak correlators on a water main which can relay back to a technician the exact location of a leak.
