How to Find a Water Leak

Our highly trained engineers at L.D.S. Leak Detection Specialists Ltd. will choose the approriate testing and inspection process specifically chosen to suit your home or commercial business to find the leak.

Our engineers at L.D.S. carry all the latest technology in leakage detection. We have listed the main Leak detection methods and equipment below. Inspection cameras. Protimeter mms damp meter survey kits, pressure gauges both hydraulic and digital and salts diagnostic kits also form part of the L.D.S. engineers equipment.

Leak Detection Methods to Find A Leak

Acoustics
Acoustic profiling uses ground and pipe sensitive microphones to enhance the sound of the leak. This method can help in pinpointing precise leak location.

Correlation
Is a way of finding and pinpointing leaks in water pipes. A leak in a pipe under pressure creates noise that travels through the pipe walls, the surrounding ground and along the contents of the pipe. Correlators are a very accurate sound testing device which are used to identify the acoustic frequency caused when a pipe is leaking. The correlator uses two identical sensors located along the pipe to calculate the leek location by logging the signal delay, sensor distance and the sound velocity.

Tracer Gas
The trace gas, a safe mixture of hydrogen and nitrogen, is introduced into the pipe with the suspected leak. The gas, is the lightest in the atmosphere and is made up of of small molecules. The gas will exit at the leak and make its way to the surface where it is detected using gas sensitive detection pobes.

Thermal Imaging
Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to see and measure thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermography cameras can identify problem areas that can’t be seen with the naked eye, detecting hidden water leaks. The infrared inspection camera can detect not only hidden water leaks and their origin, but also moisture that cannot be physically reached with moisture meters. Read more

Pipe, Cable and Metal Detection and Tracing
Often the exact position of pipes and cables is unknown due to innacurate or non existant network plans. In order to carry out precise water leak detection and to avoid damage to utilities and operators during excavations, it is essential to know the precise position of all services. We use high performance equipment which can locate and trace buried pipes and cables.

Network Monitoring with Noise Loggers
Noise Loggers are used for early detection of leaks in water supply networks.The longer it takes to identify that a network is leaking the more revenue is lost and the greater the loss of precious water resources. In addition to the more conventional methods of leak detection the installation of permanent noise loggers has proved to be a cost effective tool in early identification of water loss. By permanently monitoring sections of the system, which have previously been proven leak free, it will alert you when a potential leak does develop. Read more .

SAFE SECURITY – Security Alarm System Components #alarm #systems, #security, #burglar


#

At SAFE Security we design home security systems that are tailored to meet the specific needs of each customer s home and lifestyle. We have wired and wireless systems available and all our systems are easy to use. Our systems can be configured to protect your home against intrusion, fire, carbon monoxide and other environmental hazards. When triggered, these devices send an electronic signal to the monitoring station where a trained operator will respond appropriately.

The most commonly used devices include:

Security System Keypads
Keypads are an important part of your home security. They allow you to arm your system with a secured code. They can be placed wherever you need them most and are so easy to use even your children can operate them.

Keypads feature emergency buttons that allow you to call for help immediately. Backlit buttons allow you to see your keypad when the power is out.

Door and Window Sensors
According to the NBFAA, 56% of burglars enter through a door, another 23% through the first floor window. Door and window sensors are placed in these areas of vulnerability. When the contact is broken, the alarm is triggered. A chime function allows you to monitor who comes and goes from your home—this is great for added security while you are at home. Keep children in and intruders out.

Motion Detectors
Motion Detectors are triggered when someone walks in view of the detector. If an intruder enters your home through a door or window that is not protected by a sensor, the motion detector will act as a trap ensuring they don’t stay in the home for long.

Motion Detector technology can distinguish the difference between an intruder and a playful cat or dog left in the home. They can be turned off while you are home while your windows and doors can remain secured.

Monitored Smoke Detectors
During a fire it takes the average person seven minutes before they have an opportunity to call the fire department, but it takes just three minutes for a room to become fully engulfed in flames. With a monitored smoke detector, the second smoke is detected the siren will be triggered, the monitoring station will be contacted and the fire department dispatched. This allows you to focus on getting your family out of the home.

Smoke detectors provide the best early warning for fire protection and ensure that your home is protected while you are at home or away.

Carbon Monoxide Detector
Carbon monoxide poisoning is the #1 cause of accidental poisoning in the United States. You can’t see it, smell it or taste it, but our Carbon Monoxide Detectors can. When high levels of carbon monoxide are detected the monitoring station is signaled and alerts your family. Protect your family against this silent killer with a Carbon Monoxide Detector added to your home security system.

Panic Buttons
Panic Sensors are designed to go just about anywhere. This sensor allows you to activate a 24-hour emergency alarm whether you are at home, in the yard, or in the shower. Call for help with just a push of a button.

Remote Entry Key Fob
Convenient and easy to use remote entry key fobs allow you to arm and disarm your system with a push of a button as far as 500 feet from your home. The key fob also features a panic button which allows you to contact help in case of emergency.

Alarm Sirens
An alarm siren provides peace of mind for you and acts as a deterrent for would-be intruders. Alarm sirens will wake even the soundest sleepers to alert them of trouble.
