This project included a water leak in a 3″ Polyethylene water main adjacent to a swimming pool. It was not a swimming pool leak. The leak was substantial, but very quiet when listening with the line wet. I added compressed air and helium gas which increased the sound level to the point where the equipment
This project involved a 1/2 mile long 1-1/2″ water service running from a pump house to 20 spread out trailer home sites. The water leak had started in December and had grown progressively worse over the past 6 months. I started listening with the system wet at the pump house and walked with the plumber
The water leak detection service was for a 3/4″ PVC water service running roughly 100 ft between two buildings. There was a wet spot in the asphalt parking lot which gave me a rough starting point. The water pressure was 75 psi and the system produced a surprisingly strong signal when it was checked with
Kenton County Parks called regarding an underground water leak adjacent to some restrooms at Mils Road Park. This was another case of not being able to isolate the system as the 2″ copper water service had a reduced pressure backflow preventer on it, which would not allow adding compressed air or helium into the system.
