Digital Borescope Leak Detection

A Digital Borescope (Videoscope) is a tool to aid real time visual inspections inside cavities and other hard to reach areas. A Digital Borescore is made up of a rigid or flexible tube, a digital display or eyepiece on one end and a High Definition Camera on the other end.

Borescopes are used by plumbers in the leak detection industry while Endoscope Cameras are used in the medical field.

Borescopes helps the leak detection process by providing access to hard-to-reach areas with minimal property damage. These specialized inspection cameras work by transmitting high-definition images from a small, flexible tube with a camera and light source at the end.

This allows professionals to access confined spaces, such as wall cavities and voids, and pinpoint the precise location of water leaks without causing unnecessary damage.

The use of Borescope’s in leak detection has proven to be highly effective, offering numerous advantages over traditional methods. 

Not only do these cameras allow for quick and accurate location of leaks in voids, but they also help minimize the disruption and damage associated with traditional methods of leak detection.

With Borescope cameras, the days of tearing apart walls and floors to locate a leak are long gone.

How Does a Borescope work to find a leak?

A Borescope is designed to inspect hard-to-reach areas by inserting a flexible tube with a camera and light source into walls, floors, and other confined spaces. 

The camera, typically measuring six millimeters in diameter, captures high-resolution images and videos that can be viewed in real-time by the operator.

Borescope cameras allow professionals to pinpoint the exact location of concealed leaks

One method employed by professionals using Borescope’s for leak detection is the Endoscopy Leak Detection Method. This technique involves drilling small, easily repairable holes through the chipboard floor or floorboards to access the pipework without causing extensive damage.

The small camera and light source are then inserted into the hole, providing comprehensive visuals of the leaking area and enabling prompt repair.

Advantages of Using A Borescope

The utilization of Borescope’s for water leak detection offers numerous benefits. First and foremost, they provide non-invasive access to tight spaces, allowing for minimal disruption to the property.

This is especially advantageous in situations where traditional inspection methods would cause significant damage or be impossible to perform.

Additionally, Borescope cameras offer real-time visual feedback, enabling users to quickly identify and diagnose the origin of the leak. By providing a comprehensive view of the leaking area, endoscope cameras not only reduce the time and effort required to locate the leak, but also help prevent further damage caused by faulty pipes.
