Leak Detection Products and Services
Carolina Meter & Supply offers the world's leading water loss management and leak detection technologies through Fluid Conservation Systems (FCS) state-of-the-art equipment and telemetry systems. These systems provide water system managers the tools to proactively locate water system leakage, reduce leak run times and speed repairs. Utility and leak detection crews can utilize these user-friendly systems to continuously monitor for leaks or make rapid deployments in response to emergency, high-profile leaks. Proactive and systematic leak detection programs greatly reduce supply-side water loss while improving overall infrastructure integrity. Likewise, a significant return-on-investment can be realized through reduced repair costs, efficient use of labor and materials and water conservation.
Our comprehensive line of water leak detection technologies includes: digital, real-time correlators - for pinpointing leak location; leak noise data loggers - for leak surveys or continuous water system monitoring; and advanced microphone systems for leak sounding and confirmation. We also offer an array of flow monitoring, pressure management, and metering solutions to help water system managers increase water efficiency and enhance utility revenues.

The Lmic is an easy-to-use, low cost, electronic listening stick and ground microphone combined. It is ideal for general leak sounding operations and can be fitted with either a tripod foot (for use as a ground microphone) or probe rods (for sounding at fittings or in soft ground).
Xmic is an advanced, yet easy to use electronic ground microphone. It is designed to amplify the noise generated by water escaping from buried supply pipes under pressure.
An operator using the S30 can listen at various contact points (valves, hydrants etc) to determine whether or not the pipe is leaking.
