Affordable Slab Leak Detection in San Diego
There is nothing like discovering water pooling in a bathroom, kitchen or even in a squishy carpet to strike fear inside in the minds of any homeowner. Images of torn up carpeting and tiles with piles of dirt mounded beside the cabinets immediately rise. Unfortunately in San Diego, slab leaks are a common plumbing repair issue. We have found that homeowners’ insurance pays for it, and, after all the slab leak remediation is done, they even get some new flooring and paint to boot!
As San Diego leak detection specialists, we at Perry Plumbing Heating & Air have the state-of-the-art technology to keep disruption to a minimum and avoid digging all together. We also keep it affordable by using high-tech leak detection equipment that we have invested in. This helps us leave the jackhammers and sheet rock saws on the truck. We even pride ourselves on making the smallest intrusions possible.
The state-of-the art technology that we use includes:
A Video Inspection System
Even if your plumbing system is extremely complex or hopelessly archaic, our video-empowered inspection cable can overcome any problem. This cable is 500 feet long, and the advanced fiber optics technology will allow it to detect leaks in even the most complicated areas of your pipes. The video will detect the source of the leak, and our technicians will gladly show it to you on the screen.
Leak Noise Detection
At two different points on a pipe, ground microphones will allow us to listen and then compare the different leak noises. We can then enter the pipe diameter and other pertinent information into our software program. When we balance that information with the leak noise, voilà! . . . we determine the exact location of the leak.
An Infrared Camera System
Our infrared camera sends signals that penetrate floors, walls, slabs and even the earth to detect any heat from the water that is escaping the pipe. This heat is then converted into an electric signal, and then then our camera screen will convert it into an image. Did you know that even ice cubes emit heat? Our cameras will discover the water leakage, no matter what its temperature is. You must see this on the screen to believe it!
A Helium Injection/Tracing System
When we turn the water on and off, we can actually listen for bubbles in order to pinpoint the source of the leak. When we think we are close, we can inject helium into the line to verify our proximity to it.
Nu Flow® Trenchless Pipe Relining and Repair
We are a licensed provider of the patented Nu Flow® trenchless drain lining system, a cost-effective alternative to traditional digging methods of pipe replacement. This new method does not disturb the surface, yet still offers the structural strength of a new pipe. The lines are evaluated with sewer cameras, cleaned, and then epoxy barrier pipe-liners are pulled into place to create a seamless, effective “pipe within a pipe.”
