In this webinar we will explain how high and low voltage electronic leak detection techniques work, and discuss how to select the best technique for different roofing and waterproofing assemblies. Attendees will learn about challenges involved in assuring that a proper ground is available in the system to be tested, including the limitations of conducting low voltage testing through various types and depths of overburden material. With these concerns in mind, we will discuss the importance of managing the expectations of customers and stakeholders regarding the ability to accurately test during system assembly and the assembly’s service life.
