In the pulse of a city, the water supply system is a vital vessel that sustains life. And in this vascular system, pipelines are an indispensable component. However, due to various reasons, pipelines may leak, which not only causes waste of water resources, but also may affect the stability of the whole water supply system. Therefore, pipeline leakage testing is particularly important. In this paper, we will share some experiences about pipeline leakage detection, in order to provide some useful references for relevant staff.


When the suspected leakage point is located in the green belt, due to the poor sound transmission effect of soil, we need to explore the pipe position by other means. At this time, we can use the inserted rod in the pipe leakage detector to connect the probe for leakage detection, or make holes in sections to take the sound. Through these methods, we can more accurately locate the leakage point and improve the efficiency of the leakage detection work.

For some specific pipeline environments, such as PE pipe under reinforced concrete ground, due to its special material and location, it brings considerable challenges to the leak detection work. At this time, it is obviously not enough to rely only on the listening stick. In this case, we need to combine the actual situation and consider various factors, such as the nature of the pipe, the location of the surrounding facilities, etc., to develop a suitable leak detection program.

In leakage detection work, it is very important to understand the layout and installation pattern of the pipe network. By observing water supply facilities such as valves and hydrants, we can roughly deduce the direction and layout of the pipes. Conducting inspections during the day allows us to better familiarize ourselves with the geographical environment, and also helps to improve our ability to distinguish water leakage sounds. Through continuous practice and accumulation of experience, we can gradually improve the accuracy and efficiency of leak detection.

It is also very important to utilize the leak detection method flexibly. In the process of leakage detection, we should not be rigid, but flexibly apply different leakage detection methods according to the actual situation. Sometimes, the suspected leakage point may not be able to emit obvious water leakage sound due to various reasons, and then we need to analyze and investigate from various aspects. For example, check whether the pipe network is correctly located, what is the nature of the pipe, whether the leaking water flows to other places, etc.. By taking all factors into consideration, we are able to locate the leak more accurately.

Keeping a quiet mind, being careful and patient is the key to leak detection work. During the process of leakage detection, it is important to observe every detail carefully and not miss any possible clues. Sometimes, the leakage point may be less obvious or disturbed by other factors, which requires us to keep patience, test and confirm repeatedly. Only through continuous practice and accumulation of experience can we become a qualified pipeline leakage tester.

In conclusion, pipeline leakage testing requires rich experience and skills. Through continuous learning and practice, we can continuously improve our skills and provide a strong guarantee for the stable operation of the water supply system. We hope that the experience sharing in this paper can help and enlighten the relevant staff.
