Aquaphon A 100 Professional Electro-Acoustic Water Leak Detection Kit
Aquaphon A 100 receiver Electro-acoustic water leak detection
When pressure pipelines leak, water gushes out of the crack into the ground.
The pipe material vibrates at the leakage point. These vibrations are transmitted by the pipe and can also be noticed at distant contact points, e.g. fittings. This is known as structure-borne sound and is made audible by the AQUAPHON® A 100.
The water jet and the pipe in the vicinity of the leak also cause the ground to vibrate. These vibrations are transmitted through the ground to the earth's surface where they manifest themselves as ground noise.
