How It Works

We have a 24/7 emergency response line. The moment the contract is signed we are on the road. Upon arrival, our lead technician will inject our industry tested and approved odorant and the line will be pressurized. Our canine teams will inspect along the right of way after 24 hours. KPI dogs have experience detecting in rain, snow, dense clay, thick foliage. A minimum of two dogs are used.

Our specialized odorant is designed to migrate vertically to the surface, and KPI dogs will indicate/dig at the leak. They are trained to indicated at the strongest concentration therefore their pinpointing abilities can be typically within a meter. The handler will mark the leak location and digging/repair will begin.

The canine team will continue the inspection- the first leak isn't always the only leak.
