Leak Detection Coconut Creek
Timely detection of potential leakages in a plumbing system is very important. Not only it will cause a great financial loss, but also leakage results in a drop in water pressure. Low water pressure may lead to equipment damage for washing machines or boilers. As it is very important to detect leakage right away, there is a number of advanced detection techniques. Below are discussed some of the most common water leakage detection techniques.

Throughout the decades, the only possible way to detect water leakage was by conducting visual inspections on a regular basis. As visual inspection isn’t completely accurate, workmen had difficulty identifying tiny pin-point leaks. At the time, big leaks were enough to be obvious but often it was necessary to dig up complete sections of a residential property simply to find the tiny source of a leak.
In 1800 William Herschel invented an infrared thermal imaging. The thermal imaging device has been used originally for military purposes. During the past century engineers realized the opportunity to use the infrared device for other purposes. The technology relies on identifying differences in temperature, such as those primarily caused by the presence of water in a section of roof or wall. As digital technology has been developed, infrared isothermic images were used on-site and that’s how trenchless water leak detection has been born.
Lately, with the invention of the camera it has become possible to use circuit cameras to record the condition of the interior of water pipes. The recordings were displayed on a monitor and even slightest cracks can be identified without the need to excavate complete plumbing system. In case a leak is discovered, the pipes are repaired in a matter of minutes by replacing or fixing damaged piping with a new one.
