Electronic Leak Detection

General Pipe Cleaners Gen-Ear LE

The Gen-Ear LE from General Pipe Cleaners is an easy-to-use, economical water leak locator with strong sound amplification. It can be used to pinpoint water leaks in residential and commercial water lines. The compact amplifier fits easily in the palm of your hand. It provides noise-free amplification with built-in preset audio filters, so you don’t have to guess what settings to use. High-performance headphones with noise cancellation features block out interference from surrounding ambient noise. An advanced acoustic sensor listens for the gurgling or hammering of water escaping from a cracked pipe under any surface, like concrete, tile, grass or carpet. For especially hard to find leaks, the sound amplification module adds air to the line, increasing the water pressure, thus amplifying the leak sounds and making them easier to locate. 800-245-6200;

Fluid Conservation Systems Tri-Corr Touch Pro

The Tri-Corr Touch Pro high-performance correlator from Fluid Conservation Systems is an advanced leak noise correlator designed for the more difficult leak de­tection situations, including plastic or large-diameter pipes. Incorporating a variety of simple-to-use functions and being intuitive to control, its automatic filtering intelligence system obtains the best result by automatically optimizing the filters. The step-by-step menu system guides users through the correlation process. It is an effective tool for quick, accurate leak detection. 800-531-5465;

Hermann Sewerin GmbH SeCorrPhon AC 200

The SeCorrPhon AC 200 from Hermann Sewerin GmbH combines the characteristics of a correlator with acoustic water leak detection, offering prelocation, pinpointing and correlation in one single system. It is based on the tried and tested housing and hardware concept of the AQUAPHON A 200 by Sewerin. Each is ideal for use for leak detection across all sections, materials, diameters and lengths of pipelines. Numerous additional functions are also available for complex location scenarios. 888-592-9916;

Mueller Water Products Super Centurion hydrant 

The Super Centurion hydrant from Mueller Water Products can serve as a communications hub and physical platform for both pressure monitoring and leak monitoring systems. Mueller’s pressure and leak monitoring solutions can be integrated seamlessly into existing water infrastructure and communicate via the cellular network to the cloud-based Sentryx Water Intelligence Platform. The Sentryx platform records and displays data communicated from the hydrant, and reports, data and notifications gathered from the platform can be easily pushed to workforce management software, billing software, meter data management or other utility software platforms. The Sentryx platform can interface with other software platforms and third-party devices to accommodate specific utility needs. The hydrant is manufactured with corrosion resistant materials and offers a long battery life. 800-423-1323;

MyTana LD40 Leak Detector

The LD40 Leak Detector from MyTana has multiple frequency bands that home in on hard-to-find hissing, trickle or seeping sounds while filtering out background noises. It has an easy-to-understand, real-time visual response meter, enabling operators to listen and watch for leaks. It can detect through any surface, as a probe unit detects leaks in overhead pipes, behind walls or tight spaces, making it suitable for use on vertical lines, slab leaks and irrigation leaks. It is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. 800-328-8170;

Electronic Line Locators

Subsite Electronics UtiliGuard 2

The Subsite Electronics UtiliGuard 2 is a multifrequency utility locator that adds to features of the original UtiliGuard with a user interface, integrated data capture and GPS positioning. It provides simplified graphics that are easier and faster to interpret. Operators will notice a change in screen layout when directly over a utility locate, providing positive confirmation. Screen graphics deliver increased operator confidence, locate consistency and operational performance. It automatically captures data without altering the operator’s normal workflow. This data can be used to verify performance and demonstrate quality and process compliance in the field. Supervisors can also track performance, compare it with benchmarks and enable actionable outcomes to be implemented. This reporting and auditing capability is designed to increase quality, reduce cable strikes and increase productivity across multiple crews. 800-846-2713;

Radiodetection RD8200G

The RD8200G advanced precision locator from Radiodetection has a built-in gyroscopic measurement system, which alerts the user of excessive swing, driving correct usage. A high-performance audio system allows operations in noisy environments. A waterproof speaker housing is positioned to provide maximum feedback to the operator and tuned for optimum resonance for the frequency tones chosen. Five power output levels assist technicians working in challenging environments. The locator handle vibrates when alerts activate, leaving the operator to concentrate on the job at hand. It records details on how, when and where it is used. This information can be utilized to drive best practices, identify training needs and maximize operator productivity. A single or dual Bluetooth system offers a connectivity platform designed to offer future upgrades and connectivity solutions. 877-247-3797;

RapidView IBAK North America  3D GeoSense

The 3D GeoSense system from RapidView IBAK North America provides the power to map lateral pipelines with accuracy and speed. The 3D sensor is available in almost all IBAK cameras and can be deployed on a pushrod via lateral launch or on a mainline crawler. The sensor tracks the movement of the camera as it travels through the pipeline, capturing distance, position and depth in 3D space, and is displayed by data logging software. Technicians no longer have to track the system above ground with a locator, as they can simply conduct the inspection and collect the positional data. The system is ideal for cross-bore analysis, or any situation where pipeline positional data is necessary. 800-656-4225;

RIDGID SeekTech Locator 18V Adapter

The RIDGID SeekTech Locator 18V Adapter is a flexible power option, attaching to the SeekTech SR-20, SR-24 and NaviTrack Scout to allow use with a RIDGID 18V battery. Compact in size — 3.7 by 2.9 by 5.1 inches — the adapter is a versatile power option that can reduce long-term battery costs. It easily fits into the alkaline battery cavity, providing convenience and flexibility. It also means fewer interruptions at the job site to increase productivity and profitability. 800-474-3443;

Vivax-Metrotech vLoc3 RTK-Pro

The vLoc3 RTK-Pro receiver from Vivax-Metrotech includes real-time kinematic GNSS accuracy. Using the internal cellular module with 4G LTE capabilities, the operator can connect to a NTRIP RTK caster that provides RTCM 3 corrections. By using these corrections, the operator can collect both utility location data along with the geographical location of the utility with survey-grade accuracy. It is designed for all operator levels with user-friendly and intuitive locate screens. Operators confirm the utility data with the press of a button and align the electronic spirit level to store the data. All field data is sent to the cloud and retained in the receiver’s onboard storage for review and exporting to external mapping programs. 800-446-3392;
