Can you find a leaking pipe without digging a hole?
October 4, 2016
Let’s be honest, the traditional way of locating a leaking pipe can be frustrating, time consuming and ultimately very expensive too. Tools, such as listening sticks (a wooden or metal pole with an ear piece) may have been around for a long time but they will generally only detect loud leaks near to the surface and they certainly can’t pinpoint exactly where the actual leak is. The situation is often made more difficult by a complicated pipe-work route. The need for speedy detection is crucial to stop further damage.
The traditional way of investigating the location of a leak involves digging more than a few holes and spoiling expensive outside areas such as tarmac, paving, imprinted concrete or plantation. This can be very expensive to reinstate and upsetting for the customer. It’s time-consuming, back-breaking and expensive.
Ferret Leak Locator
The good news is that there really is a way that you can detect a leak without digging numerous holes by using modern award-winning technology from Ferret Technology.
The Ferret Leak Locator system detects leaks in pipes really simply and efficiently. The Ferret Leak Locator uses a balloon (we call it the Ferret Head) which uses the existing hydraulic pressure of the water supply pipe to pass through the water pipe. When the Ferret head reaches the leak, it automatically stops and blocks the pipe, enabling you to find the exact location by the measurement on the hose. Of course, early detection means that you can then get on with the important job of repairing the leak.
