    what is the best tool to detect under slab leaking pipes

  • #2
    WELL, I CANNOT RECOMMEND THE GOLDAK UNIT MADE IN GLENDALE, CA. USA.
    HAD NO LUCK AND THE MANUFACTURER WAS OF NO HELP. JUST WANTED TO SELL ME ANOTHER PICK UP MICROPHONE FOR ANOTHER $600. THE UNIT NEVER WORKED IN THE FIRST PLACE.
    I'VE HAD GOOD LUCK WITH MY PIPE LOCATOR AND AN AIR COMPRESSOR. AIR BUBBLES MAKE A GOOD BUBBLING NOISE AND THE PIPE LOCATOR ALLOWS ME TO KNOW WHERE THE PIPES ARE LOCATED. HAVE NOT MISSED. IF NOT SURE, I DON'T GIVE A LOCATION.

      I use the Navitrack for locating and the Metrotech HL-4000 for detection.

      I started out with the Goldak equipment many years ago and they are okay but take an educated ear and couple of mistakes before you get the hang of them. With the Navitrack and the HL-4000 you take all of the guess work out of leak locating.

        Fisher XLT16 or XLT-30 are great units. They do take a bit of getting used to, but just locating a leak under a few inches of concrete should be pretty easy. Injecting air and water, from two diferent locations if possible should put you dead on.
