Water leak detection experts nail a million gallon a year water leak – case study

Water leak detection experts H20 Building Services where called to a Caravan Park as the water and waste water bills were increasing.


Upon arrival on site water leak detection engineers completed a water flow rate check on the water meter and the continual flow rate was 9.5 litres per minute.


Using a “listening stick” the engineer recorded a leak noise and carried out further check by lifting drainage covers as water often finds its way into drains, in this instance water was seen flowing into the drainage system.


An electronic listening device was used to enhance the water leak noise and the leak was pinpointed on the water supply to the caravan.
