SANDY LANE HOTEL LEAK DETECTION PROJECT
Location: St. James, Barbados B.W.I
This luxury resort commissioned ACS Underground Solutions to provide leak detection on the hotel’s underground dual temperature plastic water lines. A leak in the system was wasting large amounts of water 24/7.
ACS Underground Solutions’ acoustic service crew used GPR (ground penetrating radar) to locate the entire 4” PVC pipe water supply system.
Noise Loggers Narrow The Search
Our technicians walked the entire property to equip valve boxes and manholes with ACS hand-held noise loggers. Noise loggers sit on valves and pipes and are programmed to record leak noise. Deploying the loggers overnight meant we could localize the leak to one section of the water pipe system.
The next day the ACS Underground Solutions crew discovered the loudest logger was in the spa area. We checked that finding with microphones and verified the noise logger was correct. The ACS crew then performed a correlation leak survey to pinpoint the leak to within inches.
