Leak Detection in Boca Raton, FL
Our public adjusters have years’ of experience detecting leaks in diverse locations from domestic properties, auditoriums, high rise to business parks and everything else in between. Regardless of whether it’s a plumbing leak, fire line, or pipe line leak, we have the expertise, experience, skills and technology to identify and document the problem.
Plumbing leaks occur with all kinds of materials. Undetected they can cause expensive structural damage. They may occur inside, outside, above the roof, under floorboards and other hard to see places. Our team of experts has extensive experience investigating and locating the leak causing damage to your property.
Leaks on pipe and fire lines may pose daunting problems to locate. They are not always visible to the naked eye. Digging to locate them is expensive and the efforts may not always be successful rendering the attempt to locate the leak fruitless.
We have a proven track record locating hidden leaks in the mains, under buildings and documenting the damage for claims to be processed. We use different processes to identify the source of the leak wherever it is located. We will provide evidence of the leak and the extent of the actual or potential damage and the correct remedial action required as well as the estimate.
Processes Used To Diagnose Leaks
We Utilize 3 Main Leak Detection Processes:
1] Tracer Gas: It is a complex system involving the drainage of water from the suspected system. Tracer gas consisting of 95% nitrogen and 5% hydrogen is injected into the system under pressure. Hydrogen will escape from the system at the point of leakage and find its way to the surface where it will be detected by a gas detector. The mixture of tracer gas is environment friendly, non flammable and non corrosive.
2] Thermal Imaging: A thermal imaging camera identifies differential temperatures in surface temperatures. Leaking water appears at a different temperature to the building material such as wall or floor slab. The camera permits identification of pipe runs buried under the floor or behind walls and other areas secluded within the building structure. It is non invasive and can be undertaken with minimal disruption.
3] Acoustic Testing: On occasions where thermal cameras fail when pipes are well insulated or buried deep so that changes in the temperature are indistinguishable, sophisticated ground microphones can be utilized to trace and pinpoint the point of leakage.
Regardless of the source or cause of the leak, our public adjusters in Boca Raton have the expertise, experience, skills and technology to diagnose and provide the proof and cost of the damage.
