Electronic Leak Detection (ELD) Webinar

March 24, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT

This first portion of this webinar will cover Electronic Leak Detection (ELD) testing methods used for quality assurance. Participants will be able to understand the principles outlined in the ASTM Standard Guide D7877 and ASTM Standard Practice D8231 and identify which roofing and waterproofing assemblies can be quality control tested using advanced electronic leak detection methods instead of flood testing. ELD will be discussed as part of new construction commissioning as well as preventative maintenance for the life of the roof.

The second portion will consist of a review of conductive mediums for roofing and waterproofing. Participants will be informed of conductive medium options and proper placement within the assembly.

The final portion of this webinar will cover design and construction failures commonly identified by ELD testing and embedded fully monitored leak detection systems.
