Gen-Ear LE Water Leak Location System
Complete system includes items 1 through 7
This quality ground sensor locates leaks through many different surfaces: dirt, sand, concrete, tile, wood, marble, pergo, and many more. The ground sensors housing is wind proof & shock resistant to protect against handling noise that can interfere with the locating
Sectional Probe Rods
If you have a soft surface such as grass or carpet these probe rods will suite your needs by allowing you to set the probe closer to the possible leak for better detection.
With a sensor magnet, sound surveying is much easier. It threads onto the sensor to listen for leaks through above ground pipes, fire hydrants, water mains, iron valves, or steel pipes & fittings.
This high quality amplifier takes a leak sound and pumps up the volume through a powerful amp with built-in preset audio filters. This product has stronger sound amplification than many other systems. It also features a low battery indicator light, safety mute button that automatically shuts down the system when the headphones are removed (helps to extend battery life as well), built in flash light for night jobs, & volume control. Conveniently mounted in a durable housing, this amplifier fits perfectly in the palm of your hand for easy handling. Requires two AA batteries.
High Performance Headphones
These high quality headphones produce a clear sound with excellent noise cancellation to block out interference from surrounding ambient noise.
Sound Amplification Manifold (SAM)

Heavy Duty Carrying Case
Made of high-density polyethylene this case is designed to withstand heavy use and protect your investment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "How deep will the water leak location system find leaks?"
A. Generally the deeper the pipe the harder it will be to find the leak. Soil absorbs leak sounds quickly and lines buried deeper than 8 feet in soil will be difficult to hear. On a hard surface like concrete, pipes deeper than 10 feet will be difficult to hear.
