Potable water is a valuable and expensive commodity. An undetected leak can cost the consumer thousands of denars as the water literally runs into the ground. Water damage to building basements can go undetected for a period of time, creating costly damage to surrounding surfaces. The vast majority of leaks are hidden underground and do not manifest themselves in an obvious way at the surface.
This is where the skill and experience of a leak detection crew becomes invaluable. Using the latest state-of-the-art leak detection equipment Aquasave’s skilled leak detection personnel are able to provide comprehensive leak detection services in the most demanding of circumstances and can respond to an emergency situation on short notice.
Aquasave offers an engineered survey plan upon which a continuing program can be built, which provides immediate results.
Leak Detection programs are a cost-effective way to conserve water, save lost revenue to the utilities, and control unnecessary costs.
As part of our service, we allow for an Initial Consultation with all clients that have a leak or suspected leak. This consultation helps us establish an overview of the problems been encountered by the client and it helps us establish the steps required to locate leaks and to save water. From pilot projects to long term programmes, Aquasave prides itself in working with clients to customize solutions to suit their system needs.
With our state of the art water leak detectors, we will be able to locate the source of the water leaking in your area home, business or municipalities with minimal disruption! We pride ourselves in using the most up to date water detection equipment on the market today. The technology used is based on various methods of listening to the sound that the leak creates:
Sounding is a systematic survey and is a non-intrusive method of "listening" for water leak sounds on valves, hydrants and stop-taps in underground, pressurized pipes when there is no obvious evidence of water surfacing in a yard or flowing on the street.
The basic instrument is the Electronic Listening Stick, which is used as a simple acoustic instrument electronically amplified. This technique is still widely preferred by the majority of practitioners.
Pinpointing with Ground Microphones
The technique involves placing the microphone on the ground at intervals along the line of the pipe and noting changes in sound amplification as the microphone nears the leak position. Using a ground microphone attachment to an electro-acoustic instrument re-confirms the location of the leak We specialize in locating water leaks, not performing plumbing repairs. We work with several plumbing companies if you require plumbing repair service. Since we do not perform pipe leak plumbing repairs, you don't have to worry about us selling you a plumbing service you do not need. State of the art leak detection equipment and highly competent staff make Aquasave your first choice for domestic, commercial and municipality leaks of any kind; if it’s leaking, we can locate it!

Corelation is a way of finding and pinpointing leaks in water pipes. Leak sounds are pinpointed to the closest probable location using computerized correlation technology. The transmitters from a Water Leak Correlator system are set up in different configurations on hydrant, mainline valves and accessible metal parts of the network. Correlations are conducted at each setups and the leak position is confirmed and located.
