Leak Detection

Leak Detection is a series of line acceptance tests.  Two inflatable pneumatic plugs are connected by a cable and hose.  The plugs are pulled through the line in approximately 20 foot sections and air tests are performed in each section.  If a section fails, the leak can be pinpointed within two feet.

S.W.E.T. will provide all equipment and tools necessary to locate sewer leaks. 

  • Leak locating is fast.
  • Leak detection eliminates the need for the utility or contractor to purchase special equipment.
