Determining a Leak Location in Billerica with Electronic Leak Detection

Finding a leak on underground water lines can be a challenge for plumbers. Good thing that electronic leak detection has become available to find hidden leaks. By using a device that detects sound waves made by the leaking water. Determining a leak location in Billerica has indeed become easier with electronic leak detection.

The Process of Leak Location in Billerica

Electronic leak detection determines leaks by listening to the sound of water running along the pipes. Your contractor will choose the best location to set up the electronic leak detection device. This device has a microphone that picks up the sounds. These will then be transmitted to a computer program where the plumber will get information. An experienced licensed Billerica plumber will know whether the sound is from a cracked pipe or a leaking faucet. From there, he will determine the repair technique that would be appropriate to fix the leak.

Electronic leak detection is not only used to determine water leaks. It can also be used to determine leaks in other pressurized systems like the compressor of an air conditioner and refrigerator, and natural gas line.

You Might Be Concerned About Wall and Floor Damage

Don’t be. Back in the days, a licensed Billerica plumber would need to rip open the wall or dig the whole flooring in his effort to find the location of the leak. Today, with electronic leak detection, wall and floor damage is lessened. Since the plumber already knows the exact location of the leak, the part of the wall to be ripped open or the area of the floor that will be dug would be smaller. A smaller hole would also mean bigger savings for you in terms of time and money.
