Our mission is to help people to work towards a common goal and teach them how to protect our drinking water.
We want to secure the water supply through sustainable and innovative solutions and simultaneously getting an understanding and a satisfaction from every involved part.
At Leif Koch A/S we are specialised in finding leakages, by listening to the sound of water leaking from buried water pipes. Besides finding the leaks, we also educate people, teach them how to do it themselves and supply the necessary equipment.
The principle of leakage detection and what we do is simple. If there is a sound of running water, when all taps are turned off, there must be a leak. However it is not always this simple and other parameters such as traffic and surrounding noise can affect the listening process, which means that in practice the work is more demanding and know-how becomes essential.
