Burst Pipe Located – Primary School, Langwarrin VIC
National Leak Detection was contacted by the Principal of a Langwarrin Primary School after they were continuing to receive significantly high water bills.
As schools are often situated on large blocks of land, it can be very difficult to successfully locate a small leak or burst pipe. After a few unsuccessful attempts from other companies, the Principal explained that she was unsure where to go from here. The bookings team at National Leak Detection gave her reassurance and allocated her an afterhours appointment as her request.
Nick and Arron, two of our senior technicians went to work on inspecting the pipework and continued to update the client as of their findings. It was a process of elimination to determine the exact location of the leak. After issues with some running toilets and a leaking irrigation line were rectified, the team were able to use Acoustic Listening and tracer gas to successfully pinpoint the lation within a 1m radius, under a bitchumen play area.
Our ability to locate leaks using non-invasive methods, meant that the school did not waste time and money, nor cause more damage by digging up areas that were unrelated to the issue.
