Leak Detection and Repair
Repairing leaks is one of the most common calls we take as plumbing contractors. One of the frustrating things about leaks is that like clogs, they can occur anywhere in the plumbing system. Moreover, they can go undetected for some time. Leaks that go undetected and unchecked for too long create more serious and costly problems later on, including water damage to your home, and the risk of mold growth. Our team at Drain Force Plumbing specializes in plumbing leak repair and detection in San Pedro, CA. If you have a leak or suspect you might have one, we’re the team to call at (310) 363-8955. If you have a plumbing emergency after hours, we are on-call 24/7.
Finding and Repairing Leaks
Some leaks are obvious, while others, like those in your sewer line or main water line, may not be readily apparent. These lines are often underground, behind walls or otherwise not readily accessible. In the past, it could take a lot of guesswork to find leaks in underground pipes or in pipes behind the wall. It could also require an extensive amount of excavation of your property, which would leave you not only paying for the plumbing repair, but having to pay to restore your landscaping.
Now, instead of major excavations, to find leaks in hidden-away pipes, we send a small video camera attached to flexible rods through your system to find the leak. At Drain Force Plumbing, we like to take advantage of state-of-the-art technology. This technology helps us get to the source of the problem fast so that repairs can be made quickly. Cameras not only help us find leaks but also sources like clogs or tree roots that may cause damage to or are damaging your pipes. Using the camera eliminates guesswork and minimizes digging into property to find the leak.
Our leak detection and repair services cover the whole plumbing system, as well as fixtures like toilets and appliances like water heaters. We also repair slab leaks. If pipes underneath your foundation are leaking, you’ll want to get them repaired quickly to avoid serious damage to your foundation and home. Slab leaks can be repaired either by tunneling under the foundation or through trenchless repairs.
Many of our leak repairs are trenchless repairs. Trenchless repairs just require a couple of access points. Usually, without digging up extensive portions of your property, we can reline the pipes using flexible tubes coated in resin. The flexible tubes are inflated and the resin allowed to harden. This repairs the leak by creating a pipe-within-a-pipe, a pipe that is as strong as a regular PVC pipe.
