Wet Roof Pro – Leak Detector Kit

Find flat roof leaks in wet conditions

The Buckleys Wet Roof Leak Detector Kit has been specially designed to find leaks in flat roofs. The equipment is suitable for use on hot melt, asphalt and single ply roofing membranes providing the surface is sufficiently soaked.

The system uses the ‘vector-mapping’ or ‘earth leakage’ method of locating faults. The conductive properties of water (from either rainfall or a hose) provide a medium through which electrical current can flow, allowing the user to pinpoint leaks. 

The system incorporates a pulse generator together with a receiver/detector unit, earth leads and connecting leads.  The generator unit creates an electrical field across the roof surface via a ‘boundary wire’ which is positioned around the perimeter of the test aria and connected to the positive terminal on the generator unit.  The negative terminal is connected to a suitable earth on the building’s structure. 

Two test probes (poles) are supplied, each in three sections, which can be put together easily on site. Holding these in contact with the roof surface, connected to the detector, leaks can be identified.  Leaks in the roof membrane allow water to penetrate to the building’s structure; creating a short circuit. By measuring the voltage differential between the test probes, the detector unit is able to direct the operator to the location of the leak.
