What Is Leak Detection?Leak detection is not something home and business owners can perform on their own. Most of the time leaks that are occurring within your pipe system are too small to see with our eyes which is why our team at Trenchless Pipe Repairs LLC is always ready to perform effective leak detection services on your pipes. Leak detection is the process of using smoke, electricity, or water to establish where a leak is located. The leak detection process is conducted by sectioning off an area of your pipe, so whatever substance we to test your pipe can filter our through the leak or pinhole.
Types of Leak DetectionDepending on where your leak is located and the type of pipes affected, Trenchless Pipe Repair LLC will perform a leak detection test in one of the following ways:
Leak detection performed with water involves filling the pipes with liquid (usually water), and pressurizing the pipe when the testing is needed. The liquid is dyed a fluorescent color so our technicians can better determine a possible leak. The water valve is shut off and technicians survey for a loss of pressure.
Water line and lateral lines are best tested for a leak with smoke testing. Cities often use smoke testing as regular maintenance on aging sewer and gas lines. A blower and smoke candle are used to create a chemical reaction, sending harmless, visible smoke through the sewer lines.
Low-Pressure Air Test
After water pipes are installed, low-pressure air tests can be performed to validate the integrity of the pipes. The pipes are filled with air and observed for 15 minutes to determine if any area loses pressure. Existing pipes can also be tested this way after the main water valve is shut off and all excess water is drained.
High-definition cameras feed real time information to our technicians. The cameras can see leaks, breaks, corrosion, and cracks within the pipe.
