2015 this thread started, in the 6 years that have gone by leak detection has made some pretty cool advances. One of my favorites now is the Sebakmt Corrolux C-3. It is a leak corrolator but has other functions the one that is neat for slab leaks or any leaks is a mode called Pinpoint Leak where you simply place 3 sensors (microphones) or up to 8 if you have a large area to do on the ground over the pipes path. They are connected to the main user unit by wireless. You step back away from the suspected leak area (to get rid of the noise that you create moving around) and let it listen. A minute later it will have found the leak by figuring out what constant noise it could hear (the leak) then at what HZ it was found at then will show you which sensor is the closest to the leak. You then can use the headphones and move them around to find the exact spot. Deepest I have found with concrete as the top surface is 7 feet. This unit does a lot of other things but they are more for outside locates. GPS is set to each sensor so you can view a google map of an outside leak locate it is pretty cool to.
