Heath Consultants Incorporated’s Aqua-Scope water leak detector can help water utilities reduce and conserve water use during current drought conditions, the company says.
The Aqua-Scope amplifies frequencies (sound waves) generated by a water leak. The Heath Aqua-Scope consists of two major components; the direct contact microphone and ground microphone.
The direct contact microphone is used to listen on main line valves, hydrants and service connections. The operator is altered immediately if there is a leak in the area. The ground microphone is used to pinpoint the actual source of the leak.
