I have a water leak. I have narrowed it down to one pipe but the pipe is either inside a wall or under a floor. The local plumber's solution is to start one end and cut a gradually lengthening hole until he finds it. I recall, many years ago, a plumber in Scotland using a listening device to pinpoint the leak before cutting into a floor to repair it. He was accurate within one foot.

I have asked around all the plumbing supply shops in Chiang Mai and the replies have varied from incomprehension to total disbelief that such a device exists.  I cannot find any relevant thread on TV nor any device in Lazada. Can any member suggest where I can find anything effective ?

Try a length of plastic pipe,put it to your ear,

in the area you suspect the leak is,and you

should be able to narrow it down,

The MWA has leak detectors that just look like a long rod.


Try a long screwdriver and listen to the end. 


I think it has to be a pretty good leak to hear it though...
