Leak detection survey
When you contact us with a suspected leak within a given area or DMA our technicians will conduct a full and thorough survey of the problem area. This will include checks on the integrity of the zone or area and a brief assessment of commercial consumption. We will then survey all mains and fittings with a leak noise correlator and traditional sounding techniques. We also use additional equipment such as ground microphones, hydrophones and gas injection when required. The exact method of survey and equipment used will depend largely on the pipe material, availability of fittings and the pressure in the distribution system.

Leakage survey

Trunk mains survey
Trunk mains surveys are a vital part of any leakage control programme both in terms of water loss and the ability to supply and control the distribution network. However, the methods required for trunk mains leakage vary from our standard survey due to the distances and availability of fittings. We have investigated the various methods of survey and equipment in order to provide the most accurate auditable results. Upon completion of your survey, you will be given a detailed report including electronic files of all correlations completed, details of all leaks located, GPS and digital images of the surveyed fittings. All surveys are designed to provide a full audit trail for all works completed and are therefore, suitable for inclusion in your company's annual returns.
