Find PVC Pipes Underground with the Pulse Generator by LeakTronics
PVC and plastic pipes are easily identifiable with listening equipment and the Pulse Generator by LeakTronics.
"The science is simple," shares LeakTronics founder Darren Merlob. "Send an acoustic pulse into the pipe and listen for it. Pipe tracing has never been easier, and the price point has never been lower. We made the Pulse Generator the most innovative and affordable tool anyone can have for locating pipes underground."
LeakTronics listening equipment is the professional leak detector's go-to equipment for finding leaks in pools, plumbing, irrigation and more. LeakTronics equipment has been trusted by companies as big as NASA and down to the weekend pool repair guy who does work on the side. It's accuracy in leak detection is unsurpassed and the ease of use and non-invasive methods have become the standard in the industry for locating leaks. The superior listening capabilities have come from careful designing that overcomes stressful leak detection methods of the past where users were formerly tied to 35 year old equipment designs and techniques that take hours to complete and deliver varied results on where leaks occur.
In the past, common methods for detecting PVC and plastic pipes required that pipes had been installed with copper tracing wires, or simply had to be dug up from where the line started to where the leak was found. Using electrical tracing has never been a guarantee because most plastic type pipes don't have an installed wire to apply electricity to. Therefore, they are untraceable by standard techniques. The Pulse Generator offers a solution to this problem that works.
By attaching the Pulse Generator to an active spigot tied into the plumbing lines, the user can regulate the flow of water through the Pulse Generator, causing valves to pulse the water flow through the device. The pressure created sends an acoustic pulse down the pipe for literally thousands of feet; creating a sound that can be heard above the soil, concrete or ground cover that buries the pipes. Using listening equipment, users can mark the exact location of pipes so when pressure testing the lines, they know where to listen for leaks.
"I've used LeakTronics Pro Complete kit for years and I've built a very profitable leak detection business around it," states Don Hess, a swimming pool leak detection pro in Louisiana. The hardest part of finding long plumbing lines is figuring out where they run underneath patios and big back yards. The Pulse Generator solves that problem for me. I can trace pipes from here to Timbuktu and it's made me the guy people call when they think they have leaking pipes."
LeakTronics offers the Pulse Generator in two ways. The first is with listening equipment. This includes the Pulse Generator, a standpipe and water evacuation hose, the LT1000 Amplifier and volume adjusting headphones and the Soil Probe by LeakTronics for hearing the pulse and locating the pipes. This complete kit includes the equipment for listening to the pipes and requires no other tools to get the job done right. It lists for $1900 on the LeakTronics website.
The second option is for users who already own listening equipment, regardless of the brand. LeakTronics Pulse Generator is applicable to any brand of listening device. The Pulse Generator Add-On kit includes the Pulse Generator, a standpipe and a water evacuation hose for just $600.
