Finding plumbing underground is a key part of performing proper leak detections and getting to repairs. Invasive methods, like digging along lines and breaking concrete lead to a bigger expense after repair work is completed on the pipes. Matching concrete patches or replacing lawns and garden beds isn’t pretty and having to dig through muddy landscape always leads to a bad day.
LeakTronics has developed equipment and methods that remove the hassle from line locating and lets contractors get to the pipe, find the leak and make repairs fast and effectively without unnecessary digging.
The Pulse Generator PG-2 is a device that injects a gentle pulse through the water in a pipe, allowing the contractor to listen for the precise location of the pipe, then flag its location. By simply attaching the PG-2 to an active hose spigot and turning on the water, the entire length of the pipe, and any lines attached to it, will radiate what sounds like a heartbeat through the line.
