Solutions Just For You
Water Audits Tailored For Every Situation
You might be surprised to know that the average American family of four can use an excess 50,000 gallons of water annually – up to an additional $600 on their utility bill each year! This can be attributed to a number of factors including unknown plumbing leaks, inefficient fixtures and high demand landscaping. A Water Audit provides home owners with insight to how much water they are using, how that compares to the national average for responsible water usage, and how much money they are (literally) sending down the drain each year.
Commercial Buildings & Sites
The EPA reports office buildings, schools, hotels, hospitals, restaurants, and other commercial and institutional facilities use a significant amount of water and energy in their daily operations. Water Audits provide building owners, facility managers and other stakeholders with valuable insight needed to use water more efficiently to reduce the risk of water shortages and increasing costs.
Municipalities live under a microscope of scrutiny for fiscal, social and environmental responsibility. From public drinking water systems, to wastewater and storm water management, there are a lot of places that problems can be overlooked, underground. Blood Hound’s Water Audits provide municipalities with valuable data to make educated decisions about the maintenance and management of their infrastructure for the future of their communities.

Precise Digging Means Lower Cost
Our use of robotic camera technology and noise correlation equipment gives us the ability to precisely locate the area of your leaks which results in a smaller digging area to reach the problem.
Plan, Audit, Discover
Servicing residential, industrial and commercial customers, our friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff will help educate and problem-solve all projects no matter how large or small. Our certified technicians are well trained and use the latest technologies to pinpoint with extreme accuracy the damaged and leaking pipes for repair.
We Use Soundwaves To Find Your Leaks
Noise corrolators help use pinpoint precise locations
We calculate the distance
Microphones or acoustic sound sensors are placed in contact with the pipe, at two or more points, to record the sound emitted by a leak (e.g. a hissing noise) somewhere between the points. The sound data is processed through a mathematical algorithm which compares or correlates the two recordings to determine the difference in the times it takes noise to travel from the site of the leak to each of the sensors. If the distance between the sensors is known in advance, this timing information can be used to determine the location of the leak.
Dig Precisely at the leak location
Blood Hound deploys more than just your typical leak detection equipment to find leaks. Blood Hound also utilizes EM locating, Ground Penetrating Radar, robotic camera systems, and vacuum excavation to ensure that you find your leaking pipe. Our Blood Hound leak technicians can pinpoint the leak so your only digging in the area that’s needed in order to properly fix the leak.
Resulting in lower cost for repair
Time is money. So is unnecessary and costly digging in a larger area to see exactly where the leak is. By pinpointing where the leak is, you are only digging in the area that’s needed in order to properly fix the leak.
Robotic Camera Inspection
Less Digging Results in Lower Cost
See The Exact Cause of the Leak
By sending our robotic cameras into your underground piping we are able to record the exact cause of leak issues and also pinpoint future problems.
- Cameras can be used to visually find leaks in pipes when acoustic technology may not work.
- Use camera systems to find water infiltrating into sewer pipes, (Good use if there are no visuals of a water leak above ground)
- Use cameras to locate untonable plastic water lines without tracer wire
