The Author's method of leak detecting had its merit therein that under certain conditions it enabled smaller leaks to be located where other analytic methods might not yield results. The writer thought that the statement enables large leaks to be located under Conclusions was misleading. Larger leaks and breaks could be readily located by water hammer methods (vide Rouse, Engineering Hydraulics, p. 482), where a pressure surge was caused to travel in the pipe-line by the rapid closure of a solenoid valve against a convenient flow rate.
