Many homes and commercial buildings are constructed without a crawl space and these foundations are commonly referred to as “slab on grade” foundations. Beneath many of these slab on grade foundations are water pipes, drain pipes and sometimes power and other utilities. Plumbing leaks beneath a slab foundation can present unique locating obstacles encountered by most leak detection professionals. Many include varied flooring materials to structure obstacles such as walls, fixtures, appliances or stairwells. Other unseen leak detection obstacles may include insulated or sleeved pipes, plastic liners installed beneath the slab, other utilities including drain or sewer pipes.

Locating plastic pipes acoustically –
As plastic pipes are not electrically conductive, they cannot be located with the classic electromagnetic method. Another principle in pipe location is used with the acoustic method: the pipes transmit mechanical vibrations better than the surrounding soil. The vibrations are transmitted along the pipe and over the soil to the surface where they can be detected by a microphone. Just as with the acoustic location of water leaks, the microphone indicates the highest intensity thus revealing the position of the pipe. Basically AC or metallic pipes can also be located with this method.
