EFVM® provides an efficient and highly accurate leak detection solution.

The EFVM® leak detection system makes flood testing waterproofing membranes a thing of the past.

EFVM® is a low voltage test method that creates an electrical potential difference between a non-conductive membrane surface and a conductive substrate, which is earthed or grounded.

By applying water on the membrane surface and using the water as a conductive medium, an electric field is created and a breach in the membrane creates a vector (ground fault connection).

The EFVM® technician reads the electric flow travelling across the membrane mapping the breaches with pin point accuracy.

Advantages of the EFVM® testing system

  • Exact pinpointing of membrane breaches
  • Non-destructive to the membrane
  • Can be performed on sloped structural decks
  • Membrane defects can be repaired and retested without delay to the construction schedule
  • Limited use of water required for the EFVM® test
  • Eliminates unnecessary removal of the overburden to locate a membrane breach
  • Membrane performance can be monitored during its lifespan through the overburden
