Leak Detection Water Pipes

ANSWER:
“Spitting taps” are something that customers might experience when performing leak detection on water pipes. To minimize these effects you should try to limit the search area on the pipe.
ANSWER:
Yes, it can be used to find leaks in water pipes, both filled with water and empty.
ANSWER:
Yes, hydrogen takes the easiest way up, but will ALSO go straight up from the leak. In real tests you may in a case like this get a strong indication where you know there is no pipe, which will tell you that it may just be a puff of hydrogen taking the easiest way up, through a drain, a fissure or something similar. Just go back to where you know the pipe is buried and continue your search and I guarantee that you will find your leak.
ANSWER:
Yes, Hydrogen penetrates anything if you wait long enough. Concrete is normally quite porous as is also many other materials we normally think are solid. Practically we have experience in finding leaks where the tracer gas has had to pass through dirt, mud, gravel, snow, concrete, asphalt and various types of tiles and cobble-stone paving
ANSWER:
Yes, it is an excellent idea to use our equipment for leak detection in water pipes, and you do not even have to empty the pipe first. Just make sure there is a certain over pressure in the pipe and the injected tracer gas will dissolve into the water. When the water escapes out through a leak it will release the tracer gas and let it rise to the surface for detection.
