What You Need to Know About Electronic Sewer Leak Detection
Leaks in plumbing systems can be very damaging and costly. Statistics show that leaks in residential and commercial properties happen more frequently than people imagine. This video educates about leak detection systems and how they work.
Usually, leaks occur as a result of an aging plumbing system or because of severe water pressure. Consequently, it is vital to ensure that sewer leak detection systems are installed to detect and prevent them.
There are various types of sewer leak detectors. Most use a mechanical turbine, others ultrasonic systems, and some are designed to use electric power.
An electronic sewer leak detection system works by metering the amount and rate of water flowing through a pipe. These devices have sensors that can detect any changes in water pressure. The sensors are typically placed close to potential leak spots, like joints in sewer pipes.
Modern sewer leak detectors are also programmable. They can be programmed to regulate and minimize water flow through the plumbing systems, which can be very helpful when one is not home. The devices have Wi-Fi and a mobile app to remotely monitor and control the system.
