When pipes leak, water rushes out at the point of the leak and into the surrounding area. The pressure of the water trying to leak out of the pipe causes vibrations at the point of the leak which are carried throughout the pipe and are heard with the components included in the Plumbers Kit. Leaking pipes also cause vibrations through the ground to the earth’s surface where they manifest themselves as ground noise.
Determining whether the noise you hear is the actual leak or background noise is made easier with the technology inside the Pipe Probe, Listening Disc and DeckPlate. All three components provide outstanding transference of sound which is relayed through the LT1000 Amplifier with metering technology to the headphones of the user.
Metal Pipes are a great transmitter of vibrating sounds over long distances through the ground. Pipes constructed of other material, such as PVC, Pex, etc., do not transmit vibration sounds as easily as metal pipes. The Pipe Probe is ideal for pre-locating leaks in metal and non metal pipes. Whether made of metal or other material, a long pipeline should be checked at regular intervals to enable the leak to be located. The visual meter on the LT1000 Amplifier aids the user to obtain an accurate comparison of the noise intensities. While checking the pipe at regular intervals and listening with one of the components, if the noise gets louder and the needle on the LT1000 raises, you’re moving closer to the leak.
