The principle is "when there is a leak, the pressure water from the crack of the pipe is sprayed outward, due to the pressure water and the friction between the rupture gap of the pipe mouth and the vibration will cause the injection noise. It will spread along the pipe to both sides and diffusive way to the ground" with the detection instrument sensor in the pipe above the road to detect the purpose of finding the leak.
