AQUASCOPE 3 – ELECTRONIC LISTENING STICK

The AquaScope 3 Electronic Listening Stick from Gutermann is designed specifically for leakage teams surveying water mains for leaks. It combines the most sophisticated, digital, water leak detector technology with a user friendly interface. This ensures leakage operators can take the unit out of the case and achieve good results, first time. This state-of-the-art electronic listening stick has a highly sensitive microphone that is much more sensitive than the average electronic listening stick. There are a number of attachments for the electronic listening stick to enable the operator to both localise and pinpoint leaks. The probe rods enable the operator to contact pipes, valves, hydrants and water meters. With the extension rod fitted, access to water meters behind a fence or deep fittings is enhanced. The powerful magnet enables the operator to lower the microphone by the cable into a deep chamber knowing the magnet will make a secure connection. With the probe attached, leaks can be pinpointed in soft ground with the probe contacting “mighty-probes” pushed into the ground. With the tripod foot attached, leaks can be pinpointed in walls and under driveways and slabs. Gutermann is world renowned for producing the most innovative and effective electronic listening stick technology.

Features and benefits

Superior Sound Quality with “Digital” Technology enables the operator of this electronic listening stick to clearly distinguish the hiss of a leak, from the background static noise created by analogue technology.

Robust Design reduces the chance of accidental damage.

Controller is a comfortable ergonomic design worn around the waist to avoid neck strain and allow the operator to walk at full speed without swinging and having a hand free to open chamber covers.

Minimum noise profiling displays the minimum noise at each sounding point. Leak noise never stops and the point with the loudest, quietest noise is closest to the leak. This feature enables the operator to easily identify the quietest noise at each point.

Simple and intuitive operation with only 5 clearly labelled buttons on the interface panel and an additional button to depress whilst taking a reading, this electronic listening stick is the easiest to operate. Graphical and digital leak information on LCD display with backlight

User Selectable Filters to suppress back ground noises. This feature is essential to find difficult water leaks and unlike many other electronic listening stick kits, the operator can hear the leak as they adjust the filter and adjust both the low and high cut off in 20Hz increments to “tune in” to the sound of the leak.
