Hi my name is Graeme Selby from Global Leak Solutions & we are happy to introduce a new product we have developed for the Leak Detection Industry. We call it the AR100. It has been designed with the express purpose of locating leaks in domestic & semi commercial, commercial & industrial underground water pipes & swimming pools.
It accomplishes this by mixing air from a compressor with the water from the mains supply at the same time in a controlled environment to create an audible noise that can be heard with specialized sound listening devices. It is capable of finding leaks as small as 2 – 5 litres per hour.
The concept of AR100 was designed by Matthew Selby who has been a licenced plumber for over 15 years from the Mackay Whitsunday area in North Queensland. Mackay was one of the first places in the world to trial a new smart meter system with the aid of a device called an Auto Meter Reader (AMR). The AMR device, married with locally developed software (MyH20) revolutionised the way local authorities read water meters and keep on top of water conservation.
