The benefits of using the correct leak detection equipment

Over a period of time all pipes and plumbing will eventually develop leaks resulting in water wastage and potential structural damage. Consumers are concerned about minimizing the damage done to property and structures when detecting leaks.

Untrained service providers cause major damage by tearing walls, pools, and other structures apart when trying to identify the source of a leak.

The correct leak detection equipment allows leaks to be found faster and with out causing damage to structures and infrastructure.


Water leaks make a noise and leak noise has a distinctive acoustic signature depending on pipe material, pipe diameter, and water pressure. Our electronic listening sticks can filter unwanted noise and help you pinpoint the leak location.

The Stethophon 04 is a sound detector for recording and amplifying structure-borne oscillations of all kinds. The oscillation sensor provides un-distorted sound reproduction even when the noise is barely audible.

The AquaTest T10 is a test rod with innovative technology and ergonomic design. Its strength lies in the prelocation of leaks in water pipe networks. The AquaTest T10 is the first test rod made by SEWERIN for which no additional receiver is required.

The A 50 receiver and various microphones make the pre-location and pinpointing of leaks possible. When both microphone and headphones are attached the device boasts impressively high reproduction quality. The display helps by visualising the noises to provide reliable, differentiated evaluations.

The AQUAPHON® system supports and simplifies the detection process thanks to the outstanding quality of its microphone and measuring technology, intelligent analysis functions and the practical, visual representation of results on the display.


By comparing the noise transmitted from microphones at different positions on the pipeline, and providing the correct parameters have been set, the correlator software can make a remarkably accurate estimate of the leak location.

The New SecorrPhon AC 200 Correlator is a multi-functional leak detector offering three functions in one: Pipe location, pinpointing leaks using acoustics and correlation The clever combination of these processes in one system allows you to confidently locate the leak regardless of the ambient conditions.


Leak detection using a tracer gas is a tried and tested technique for locating water leaks. No professional leak detector should be without a tracer gas detection system in his arsenal. We stock gas detectors and all the accessories needed to get you started.

The SNOOPER mini is a robust gas leak detector and is suitable for checking accessible gas lines for external leak tightness. Leaks are determined based on detection at connection points.

If a water pipe is not under pressure or the noise from the leak cannot easily be heard then tracer gas can be a very useful technique to locate water leaks.

The gas hose-reel and regulator kit are used to introduce tracer gas into the pipes or for inflating liners.


Leak noise loggers are usually programmed to turn on during off peak periods (usually about 1–2 am) and log any noises generated on the network. Comparing data from several loggers placed around a network will identify areas requiring further investigation.

Thermal imaging works by measuring and recording the heat radiating from objects. The images show a spectrum of colour in proportion to the heat emitted.

The SePem 01 GSM noise logger uses the cellular telephone network to report areas of interest for closer investigation. Also available are the SePem 100/150 units usually deployed for shorter periods with daily data collection from unit to unit.

With the FLIR C5 in your pocket you’ll be ready anytime to find hot fuses, air leaks, plumbing issues, and more. Identifying hidden problems is easy with the 160 x 120 (19,200 pixels) true thermal imager, MSX® (Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging), 5-megapixel visual camera, and LED flashlight.


Smoke generators create a non-toxic smoke cloud that is useful when looking for leaks in sewers and storm-water drains.

Also called a thermohygrometer, hygrometer or humidity meter - measures humidity and material moisture reliably, quickly and precisely.

Fluorescent dyes are compounds designed to glow in the presence of an ultraviolet light source
