Mains Water Leak DetectionHelping you source the problem of mains water leaks
Brays Pipeline engineers are experts at finding leaks at your property using the very latest in water leak detection technologies. Much of which is done without the need to dig big trenches meaning we can normally locate and fix the problem with minimal disruption to you.
Not only does this reduce the cost of labour and equipment associated with traditional trench excavation, it also avoids the disturbance of gardens, patios driveways.
Experts at leak detection
We use a range of methods to quickly pinpoint burst pipes and water leaks and can efficiently get your mains supply repaired and working perfectly again.
When water is visible at ground level, it doesn’t always mean that the leak is directly below this. Water will always find the easiest way to escape meaning your leak could be located in another area that looks seemingly fine.
We’ll endeavour to find your problem area and advise you on the best solution.

LEAK DETECTION METHODS
Ferret Leak Locator
The Ferret uses a simple hydraulic process to locate leaks. This is powered by the water pressure in the leaking pipe, so the costs of this leak detection is low.
The head of the ‘Ferret’ is made of a robust balloon which blocks the flow of water in the pipe behind it – no water can leak past the Ferret balloon. The Ferret then moves along the pipework using the water pressure to push it along.
Once the Ferret head moves past a leak in the pipe, the escaping water makes the water pressure drop, meaning the Ferret will stop moving and the leak has been located.
Sonde is a small battery powered transmitter which, in typical use, would be screwed onto the end of a drain rod and pushed down a pipe so that the pipe direction can be traced using the locator which tracks the signal. The location of a non metallic pipe, duct blockage or leak can be identified using the system.
This offers an enormous cost saving potential by not have to excavate the ground to locate underground pipework near the water leak location.
In many situations underground pipes can be buried very deep. With this method we use specialist acoustic listening devices.
When you have a below ground water leak, the pressurised escaping flow vibrates the pipe and the surrounding area at the exit point (leak). This vibration creates a sound which can be picked up by our equipment. It will allow us to find where your leak is without the need for manual investigation.
