External leaks such as ones in faucets, under sinks, and toilets are easy to see and repair, but there can also be leaks in your pipes hidden deep under slabs, flooring, and foundation. A pinhole leak in the wall can turn into a serious emergency if left unchecked.
At Absolute Plumbing and Drain, we have the tools, skills, and technology to find leaks anywhere in your Bay Area sewer lines, including the ones that are buried underground or inside walls. Moreover, we can come up with an accurate diagnosis, which is important for guaranteed success when it comes to the method of repair.
Camera Inspection and Leak Detection Services
The problem with traditional leak detection services is the indiscriminate amount of digging in an effort to find the source of the leak. At Absolute Plumbing and Drain, we offer a variety of leak detection services you can count on from slab leak detection and smoke testing to hydrostatic leak detection and, occasionally sewer camera inspection. Leak detections services involve our team using smoke, electricity, or water to find small and large leaks within your sewer and drain system. Leak detection services require zero digging and disturbing of landscape. It’s fast, environmental-friendly and best of all, affordable.
Our technicians use the latest leak detection equipment and innovative gadgets such as a micro camera that’s attached to a flexible line to see the insides of your pipes in real time. The contraption is inserted into any open cleanout (sink or bathtub drain) and navigates to any point in your sewer system. For residential slab leaks, we can look into the foundations of your property to find problems and repair them. Commercial slab leak inspections include high rise leaks, window tray leaks, slab leaks under condos and more.
We can also conduct sewer and drain leaks following persistent odor issues. Other common detection services include sewer pipe, underground pipe, overhead, grout and tile, wall and roof leaks. Once the source has been found, our capable technicians will come up with a 100% accurate diagnosis on how to best resolve the matter on hand. Our certified plumbers are fully trained to handle any and all kinds of leak issues, starting from small ones down to the biggest emergencies. Moreover, our expertise allow us to spot issues early on and prevent leaks before they happen, protecting your home from water damage, mold formation and your family from health hazards.
Benefits of Leak Detection
At Absolute Plumbing and Drain, we recommend the cure-in-place method as the quickest and most effective way to rehabilitating broken pipes. A liner coated with special epoxy resin forms a new pipe material within the old one and seals the leak at the same time.
This trenchless method of pipe repair can address a multitude of common pipe problems, such as cracked seals, poor plumbing installation, high water pressure and in the event of burst pipes due to freezing weather. CIPP, or cured in place pipe lining can replace aging lines and ones that have corroded, restoring water quality along the way. If you have a property that’s 10 years old or more, then it’s best to have a professional technician conduct an inspection for leaks on your sewer line. For newer properties, sewer inspections guarantee peace of mind and continued usage without backups and clog occurrences.
If your home has wet patches, mold and mildew, or if you’re hit with a high water bill, call our team at Absolute Plumbing and Drain to schedule an inspection.
