Leak detection is used to determine if and in some cases where a leak has occurred in systems which contain liquids and gases. Significant leaks that do occur are caused by damage from nearby excavation. If a pipe is not properly maintained, it can corrode, particularly at construction joints, low points where moisture collects, or locations with imperfections in the pipe. However, these defects can be identified by inspection tools and corrected before they progress to a leak.
