In order to locate leaks in their water mains, water leak detectors use a more expensive unit called a Doppler leak detector. This unit works on the principle that sound can travel through different types of pipes at a constant speed to detect the leak. The Doppler leak detector has two listening devices; one is clamped to the subject of the pipe from point A to point B. A professional leak detector specialist knows how to use the unit and he knows where and how to find the leaks. The device that they use gives them readings in feet and inches from point A to point B.
