Slab Leak Detection is a common form of leak detection that uses a combination of pressure tests, electronic listening, line tracing equipment, and pipe inspection. After our team conducts a sewer camera inspection to make sure that your pipe is clear of debris and blockages, we will use slab leak detection to spot your underground leak. This method of leak detection provides our team with the valuable information needed to find the leak within your pipe.
Hydrostatic Leak Detection, also referred to as a hydrostatic pressure test, can be performed on a residential or commercial sewer system to determine if your plumbing system is leaking waste. The process requires an inflatable ball being inserted through a cleanout hole on your property and into your pipe system. Our team will inflate the ball blocking the main sewer line which allows water to be filled within a section of your pipe and ran to test for leaks.
