Can the SeCorr 300 detect leaks on PVC or PE pipes?

Hello, The unit's digital signal processing and transmission reduces noise interference, making detection much easier on plastic pipes. In addition to user reviews, you could request a demo from your supplier on a leaking PVC network.
Hello, At the moment, we don't have an actual leak, hence the simulation and why I have launched a discussion thread in the forum to see if anyone in the FluksAqua community has tangible experience. Thx
Hello, On PVC, the speed of sound is slower than with steel or cast iron. Soil, ground covering and pipe diameter also play a role. Remember, when correlating, it's a good idea to use shorter distances between points.
