Key Benefits


The Ferret is an in-pipe tethered device that uses an innovative hydraulic process to accurately locate leaks, which makes it very effective in plastic pipes.

The system comprises of a loose fitting plug (the Head) that is introduced into the pipeline via an existing access point such as a meter or valve pit, or directly into the exposed pipeline. The system is powered by the water pressure in the pipe. The Head is inflatable and acts like a valve, which can be moved along the pipe to determine the exact position of the leak. The valve has three states – OPEN, CLOSED and MOVING.


OPEN – When the pressure in the Head is lower than in the pipe the water gets past it.

CLOSED – The Head is inflated with water until the pressure inside it is higher than in the pipe. The Head is now blocking the pipe.

MOVING – When the pressure in the Head is adjusted so that it is the same as the pressure in the pipe, the Head is pushed forwards towards the leak by the pressure in the pipe. When the Head passes the leak some of the pressure that is pushing it is lost through the hole in the pipe. The pressure in the Head is higher now than the pressure in the pipe so it stops moving.
