    Crazyfuzzi is on the right track with checking for leaks underground. It will be necessary to isolate the separate buildings or loops in question and pressure test these sections individually. As for leak checking the piping which is located underground will present some difficulties, however it is not that hard if it is metallic pipe. It will be first necessary to trace and locate the pipe, isolate areas in question, and the use of an ultrasonic sound detection system such as a Goldak 4360 along with the injection of air pressure in piping will create a high turbulence so that noise will be heard
