Services that deliver results

Our expertise using state-of-the-art acoustic equipment combined with years of practical field experience make SAMCO your go-to experts in leak detection services.

Comprehensive Water System Evaluations


Drone Technologies

SAMCO has introduced advanced drone technology into our professional methods of water conservation. SAMCO’s new approach to identifying leaks is utilizing the latest drone technologies that bring a different view of how SAMCO can help save water distribution systems water. SAMCO will take to the skies to assist with your nagging water loss problems. SAMCO’s drone equipment can provide immediate thermal, infrared surveying capabilities that collect data from the air. This gives an effective perspective in understanding where leaks originate from, spanning from various and remote locations throughout the distribution system. Implementing a high-resolution aerial view combined with SAMCO’s effective boots-on-the-ground approach enables SAMCO to narrow down the areas of concern with more efficiency than ever.

GPS/GIS mapping

Global Positioning System (GPS) Services

SAMCO technicians use highly accurate Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment and state-of-the-art acoustic equipment to find subsurface leaks. We are able to detect and locate the smallest of leaks and other points of water loss in pressurized water systems anywhere in the world. Once the acoustic leak detection and location work is completed in the field, the data are imported into the Geographic Information System (GIS) for display and analysis. Subsequently GIS data may be incorporated into maps and into new or existing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications. These GIS data support capital improvement programming, GASB response, maintenance and leak repair implementation, emergency planning and response, and customer service relations.
