If you said yes to any of the above, it’s very possible you’re experiencing a slab leak on your property.
SLAB LEAK DETECTION
Slab leaks occur when pipes underneath a property’s concrete foundation “spring a leak”. Slab leaks are trickier than traditional leaking systems in that they’re hidden and difficult to identify since the last thing you’re going to see is water spraying throughout your property. Instead, slab leaks give subtle warning signs like those listed above that you have a potentially serious issue developing.
If left unattended, a slab leak can become a homeowners’ most costly repair!
ELECTONIC LEAK DETECTION
Electronic leak detection is used for underground leaks when you don’t know exactly where they are. We implement the most advanced equipment available to pinpoint the exact location of your leak.
Plumbers use moisture meters to identify potential leaks and damage caused by moisture. Different building materials have unique moisture readings. Variations in those readings let the plumber know the area where a problem exists.
The source of water leaks isn’t always evident, especially since most of your plumbing is behind the walls. A thermal imaging camera provides thermal readings that let plumbers ‘see’ moisture and water damage in building materials. It tells us where to focus our attention before we remove building materials. Unlike a moisture meter, a thermal imaging camera only detects temperature anomalies. It helps us get to the source of water damage without doing serious damage to your walls or floors. It isn’t a silver-bullet solution, but it saves us time and saves you money.
Color Sewer Camera
Sewer line problems are messy, smelly, and out-of-sight. A color sewer camera helps you detect problems that require a higher level of investigation. It lets you see when something gets in the way of the flow of waste leaving your home. It’s a lot easier and more affordable than tearing out walls, opening floors, or breaking concrete.
Plumbing Smoke Procedure
Plumbing leaks don’t have to be big or easy to see to cause problems. Small cracks and other defects can be impossible to spot with the naked eye. This is where a plumbing smoke test can be vital. A plumbing smoke procedure forces artificial smoke through the pipes. Plumes of smoke will emerge through the cracks and defects, alerting plumbers to the site of leaks.
Dye testing is an effective and simple way to check for leaks and determine if water or sewage flow is accurate. Introducing dye into the sewage system will determine if a home is properly connected to the sewer line. A plumber places a dye tablet in one of the house’s outdoor drains and then flushes it with water. Watching the progress of the colored dye tells them where the water is going.
