Water Leak Detector | Aquascope 3 | Combined Kit

Supplier: Gutermann

The AquaScope 3 is a high performance water leak detector designed for use by leakage technicians and plumbers to find leaks on water mains, water services and in residential or commercial properties.


The acoustic microphone in this water leak detector amplifies the mechanical vibration created when water in a pressurised system exits the pipe wall. 

With an electronic listening stick, magnet, tripod microphone and ground microphone the operator can use this water leak detection kit to localise the leak position and then pinpoint it under the road, in soft ground, under concrete slab or in walls.

Product features

The trigger Button on the Listening stick enables the operator to quickly activate and de-activate the amplifier with a single hand which is ideal for performing leakage surveys where you may need to carry tools in the other hand.

The display clearly shows the filter settings, previous readings, battery level, current noise level and minimum noise. This display is backlit for night work and suitable for use in bright sunlight.

The AquaScope 3 has more amplification than other water leak detector kits, enabling the operator to hear much quieter leaks.

Minimum noise profiling latches to the lowest noise detected for each sounding to help find the leak. When looking for a leak, the operator is looking for the loudest value of all the “quietest noises”. So with minimum noise profiling an inexperienced operator can perform a leakage survey.  With the provision of a guide on the expected noise levels for leaks they can pinpoint leak positions far more accurately than relying on the human ear alone.

Minimum Noise Profiling with the ability to display the last eight readings enables the operator to tell if he is going closer or further from the leak. (Illustrate with AS3 Image 1)

Simple operation, with volume control on the headphones and a trigger button on the listening stick the operator could work all day only pressing one of the six buttons on the control unit.

With a more powerful microphone than the industry standard, the ground microphone produces a very clear digital sound enabling the operator to find more leaks.

Filters to help the operator tune into the sound of a leak when there are other noises present.  Noises like traffic, air conditioning, pumps, flow and consumption can mask the leak noise unless you have an electronic listening stick with filters. Some difficult leaks require a narrow bandwidth setting to enable the operator to filter out multiple background noises and tune into the sound of the leak, this is why it is important to have user programmable filter settings.

With an accelerometer style sensor the electronic listening stick produces a very clear digital sound with the highest level of sensitivity enabling the operator to find more leaks.

With a strap attaching the amplifier for this water leak detector around the operators waist he can walk around all day hands free without neck strain created by other equipment that hangs from your neck.
