Underground Leak Detection


Leak Detection Icon

BRITON Detection & Inspection are the leaders in innovative methods of underground leak detection, providing solutions to may challenging underground water loss issues.

We provide a range of traditional and specialized testing and locating methods to assist with your water loss reduction endeavors such as aerial and ground based infrared, acoustic detection, acoustic correlation, ground penetrating radar, pipe tracing, micro pipe CCTV, and our unique IR-HPA & Pressure Testing System. We also carry out a range of system isolation point installations, flow meter installation for system testing and troubleshooting as well as excavation, leak repairs and reinstatement.

Ageing or failing piping systems over a range of , commercial, industrial, residential and government sites of all types and sizes pose many possible leakage or failure points in many challenging non-visible below and above ground locations. Generally entire piping systems do not fail even when aged well beyond design life and the practicality and budget restraints of replacing entire systems is unfeasible. Very often piping systems may contain multiple leaks. Not all leaks are detectable and not all leaks are the same, therefor the process to reduce your leakage may contain various stages such as locating/isolation/testing and detection. Briton provides all or partial stages in your leakage reduction process.

Commercial, Industrial & Residential Underground Leak Detection

Underground water system leaks on residential, commercial and industrial property's can often pose unnecessary loss, cost and grounds damage. Often ground surfaces can be completely covered in either concrete, tarmac or hard packed aggregate or pipe systems encased in concrete walls and flooring. Leaks can often go undetected for some time before surfacing and often surface substantial distance from the leak source or not at all. Sometimes the only signs of the leak are increased water usage or pressure drop. Briton Infrared takes a systematic approach to locating system leakage involving system mark-out, pressure and flow testing and specialist detection/pinpointing.

Farm, Agricultural and Orchard Leak Locating

Briton Infrared provides a range of services to assist with leak locating in challenging outdoor and rough terrain environments. Our IR-HPA system provides effective locating of moderate to high low leaks in wet conditions and over large areas where conventional methods are unsuccessful. We also equipped with a remote mobile pressure testing equipment for sectional testing if required to track down low leakage areas as well as acoustic correlation and overground acoustic.

Pool Leak Detection

Briton provides a range of solution to assist with challenging pool leak issues. We have a variety of well developed methods and specialist equipment to locate in ground leaks, encased piping leaks as well as piping locating and mark-out and general CCTV down to 17mm. We also provide suction line pressure testing or divisional pressure testing to eliminate areas if required.

Waste water Line and Tank Leak Detection

Wastewater and tank leaks can often be challenging to locate. Whilst conventional methods of inspection such as CCTV will provide internal condition assessment it often may not pickup joint leakage or cannot tell if seepage is occurring from visible cracks. When appropriate ground conditions, line depth and leakage are present Briton is able to identify areas of concern using our IR-LPA system and GPR.

Lined & Unlined Pond Leaks

Briton Detection and Inspection provide assistance with pond water loss issues or offer from start to finish service to reduce you pond leakage. We offer loss testing & monitoring, infrared & ground penetrating radar investigations for underground water pathway/loss locating. We also provide pond pump-out and locating of wall wall lining leak positions using Ir and visual inspections. To further assist with integrity inspections of pumped out ponds we also offer transfer pipe CCTV and pressure testing if required.
