I just started a service oriented plumbing company, and am trying to figure out what kind of equipment is best for me locating slab leaks. I have always used an air compressor and a bigfoot, by fisher. I've always had really good luck with those but there is apparently an american leak detection in my area that claims to guarantee w/ in 3' on locates. I generally have no problem hitting this mark but I do not guarantee on my locates. I feel like they have much better equipment then just sound location ability. I have done some research and don't know how well a thermal imaging camera would work for viewing thru slabs. I know its going to be some what costly, but I think it would be worth it. I think the best is using helium and a helium locator, (I think thats what am leak det uses) but I've never done this and have not had much luck with researching it. I sent an email to some company claiming to be a dealer for some company selling leak detection equip. dealing with helium, but got no response. Any ideas. Suggestions.
No announcement yet.
