Water Line Leak Detection

Unfortunately, leaks happen with out notice. Since water damage can occur, immediate leak detection is a necessity to prevent major damage. At Hukill's Leak Detection we provide fast and efficient service. There are many types of plumbing leaks. From leaky pipes under and in homes to leaks in Slabs, Drive ways and roads. Because plumbing leaks don’t wait to happen Monday – Friday 8 to 5, we offer emergency leak detection services.


Most pipes leaking underground vibrate the earth around it. This vibration is picked up by the sensor of the ground microphone and converted into a sound signal. With many years of acoustic sounding experience this very effective aproach on locating hard to find leaks.

Tracer Gas

Sometimes it is not possible to use acoustics due to:

  • noisy environment
  • depth of pipe
  • size of leak

In these circumstances we will replace the water in the pipe with an inert gas. The gas will escape from the break in the pipe and rise to the surface where it is detected using the trace gas "sniffer" unit.

About Leak Detection

There are many good reasons to have our professionals check for water leaks such as avoiding property damage, reducing your operating costs, account for noticeable water losses and to avoid serious line breaks.

Leaks most commonly occur in older properties. However, newer properties experience problems as well. Factors such as severe climate changes, soil conditions and ground movement and even poor construction can contribute to unexpected pipe damage which, if left undetected can have detrimental and potentially costly side-effects.

Conducting a leak detection survey generally involves a primary survey and secondary survey. The primary survey investigates a suspect section of the pipe system. The secondary survey pinpoints or discounts potential leakage spots identified in the primary survey. This survery must systematically check the whole system. Locating water leaks in pipes used to mean messy exploratory digging that was time consuming and expensive. Our trained personnel use the most modern equipment and techniques to locate potential and actual problems quickly and therefore cost-effectively.

Video inspection of sewer and drain lines has become a standard in the plumbing industry. Hukill's leak detection can provide video Inspection service at reasonable rates. Incorporating video inspection service can provide better explanation and accuracy of diagnosis.
