How does pipeline leak detector work? How does it work?

  Plumbing is an important part of home life and we all need to use plumbing in our lives. Have you ever heard of pipeline leak detector? What does it do? As far as I know, pipeline leak detector is generally called water leak detector, or pipeline leak detector, underground pipe leak tester and so on.

  Although the operation of pipeline leak detector seems simple, it actually requires meticulous skills and patience. In order to ensure the accuracy of the test, we must strictly follow the operating procedures, while taking into account various factors that may affect the test results. Below, let's take a closer look at the steps and precautions of the pipeline leak detector.

  1. Preparation: First of all, make sure that the pipeline leak detector's main unit, headphones and sensors are connected. Make sure the device is fully charged so that the operation will not be affected by insufficient power during the detection process.

  2. Turn on the switch: Turn on the switch of the pipeline leak detector to start the device.

  3. Put on the headphones: Put on the headphones so that you can hear the sound signal captured by the sensor.

  4. Place the sensor: gradually place the sensor above the pavement where the water main is located, moving and listening one step at a time. It is usually recommended to start placing the sensor away from the water main and gradually move closer to the location of the water main. The closer the sensor is to the leak, the stronger the signal sounds, and the farther away it is, the weaker the signal.

  5. Comparison of signal strength: By comparing the signal strength between different points, you can determine the location of the leak. When the sound vibration of the strongest place, is likely to be the leak of the water pipe.

  6. Consider additional factors: in the detection process, need to take into account the impact of some additional factors, such as the location of the pipeline, whether there is a tee or bends, water pressure, depth of burial and other factors will have an impact on the test results. Therefore, these factors should be considered comprehensively when carrying out the detection.

  Overall, the operation of a pipeline leak detector requires a certain level of skill and experience, as well as care and patience. If you are unsure of the operation method or encounter difficulties, it is recommended to seek the help of a professional master to ensure the accuracy and effectiveness of the test.
