The three primary types of leak detection methods are:

  • Mechanical Detection: Using physical inspection, such as visual examination or manually checking for leaks.
  • Chemical Detection: Employing substances like dyes or chemical tracers to identify leaks through their reaction or change in appearance.
  • Technological Detection: Utilizing specialized tools and technology such as sensors, cameras, or pressure testing to detect leaks electronically or through advanced methods.
