Plumbing emergencies can cause a lot of damage to your home and yard and are typically very expensive to repair. Being proactive and scheduling preventative maintenance services can go a long way towards eliminating major problems with your plumbing and sewer. One example of important preventative maintenance is hydrostatic pressure testing for your home’s sewer line.
The sewer line transports waste from your home to your city’s sewer system for disposal. It is a large and long pipe, so a major crack can cause a significant leak and a lot of damage to your yard. Unfortunately, many sewer line leaks are not discovered until major damage is noticeable.
Hydrostatic pressure testing is an easy way to discover small leaks or cracks in a sewer line so they can be repaired before causing huge problems. At Metroplex Leak and Line Locators, we offer our customers hydrostatic testing services so they can avoid the headache of catastrophic sewer line problems.
Whether there is evidence of a sewer line leak or you just want the peace of mind of knowing that your sewer line is in good repair, contact us today at 214-388-4525 to schedule a hydrostatic pressure test.
During a hydrostatic pressure test, an inflatable ball is inserted in the sewer cleanout. When the ball is inflated, it will completely block the sewer line. The sewer line is then filled with water; if the sewer line is in good repair, the water line should reach the slab level and stay there.
A technician will monitor the water level during the hydrostatic pressure test for an extended amount of time. If the water level recedes from the slab level or never rises that high, it means that there is a crack or leak in the sewer line that needs to be repaired. In the event that a leak is discovered in your sewer line, it is in your best interest to have it repaired promptly, no matter how small it may be.
Hydrostatic testing is an easy and affordable way to detect small leaks or cracks in a sewer line so repairs can be made before any damage occurs. You can schedule a hydrostatic pressure test for your sewer line in Mesquite Texas by calling 214-388-4525.
