    Yes, it is called a leak locating company. The equipment is only a small part fo the process. The most important part is the experience and ability of the operator. And, leak locating does not always just require one piece of equipment. Many times they have to use several different items, and none of them are inexpensive.

    Thanks.
    Are you familiar with any such companies in southern New Hampshire, or New England?

    Leak Detection is often done by companies which that is ALL they do. It is a very specialized trade with expensive equipment. I checked the yellow pages for Newburyport and did not find a leak detection company(but my book is a few years old). You might try Lawrence, or maybe over in Portland, whichever is closer for you.

    Check the Yellow Pages for Pipe Locators, or Leak Locators.
