Electronic leak detection is a method of leak detection designed to isolate a water leak specifically and effectively. The result of using electronic leak detection is less mess, less time spent locating the leak, and higher rates of success surrounding leak resolution and prevention. Electronic leak detection is the state-of-the-art method for leak detection, and Inland Empire Plumbing uses the most high-tech equipment and experienced and licensed plumbers so your leak catastrophe can be turned for the better in the most efficient manner possible.
There are a few kinds of electronic leak detection, and each is used for a specific task. The process for what is called “wet” electronic leak detection involves a few steps. When applying this method, your licensed plumber from Inland Empire Plumbing will spray the area around where the leak is considered to be, causing a small layer of water to rest on the affected surface. Then the plumber takes out his equipment and goes to work. The “wet” method is used mainly for flat rooftops or concrete slabs where there is no damage done when spraying the surface down.
Then there is also the “dry” type of electronic leak detection. This process involves taking a wide and brittle brush hooked to a battery that emits an electric charge and running it over the surface of the roof or floor where the leak is estimated to be. The result of this equipment makes obvious with clear markers where the leak is located. This method is used when there is a large surface area to cover and it is a dry environment, usually on a rooftop.
Lastly in the category of electronic leak detection, there is “auditory” leak detection. The equipment used for this type of leak detection is very effective for larger areas to train the focus of the plumber in the direction of the leak. The licensed plumber walks around the area of suspicion with a meter and a large “detection rod”, and when the sensor picks up higher and specific auditory signals from the rushing pipe involved in the leak, an alert is given on the meter to let the plumber know that he is close to the target.
