Utilizing state-of-the-art sonic detection equipment, ARRO’s professional staff can assist organizations in detecting leaks in their water distribution system.
We employ two different types of leak detection equipment. The first deploys a portable transducer that helps locate the general area of the leak. This is then followed by the use of a Leak Noise Correlator, which uses wireless radio transmitters to calculate the distance from where the strongest sound is found.
Using both systems in concert provides the most accurate location for owners to identify leaks within their system. Having the ability to pinpoint a water leak allows for increased system performance, helps reduce production costs, and lowers the systems unaccounted for water loss percentage which is scrutinized by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP). Because of the highly portable nature of the equipment, large system surveys can be done with relative ease depending on environmental conditions.
