Hydrostatic Testing in Katy
Find Out What’s Really Going on in the Sewer
In our diagnostic testing toolkit, one of the most valuable tools is a hydrostatic pressure test. It’s often difficult to make an accurate diagnosis of sewer line issues, and therefore it is equally difficult to decide on a repair plan. Hydrostatic pressure tests are advanced inspection methods that allow the plumbing professionals at Mercy Plumbing to make reliable decisions for your home.
How Does Hydrostatic Testing Work?
In most cases, a hydrostatic test pump is one of the first diagnostic tools we will use to search for problems in the sewer line. The inspection begins by inserting an inflatable ball into the main line. Once the ball has been inflated, and the pipe has been plugged, water will be poured into the line up to slab level.
If the water level changes at any rate within 15 minutes, or if the water is unable to reach slab level to begin with, we can determine that there is a leak in the system. Then we will be able to move on to discovering the exact location of the leak so we can decide how best to repair it.
What Are the Benefits of a Hydrostatic Pressure Test?
Before offering a complete diagnosis, it’s important for our plumbing technician to have a full understanding of what is going on inside your pipes. A hydrostatic pressure test is an important part of this process. Some of the most significant advantages of this service include:
- It will save you time and money as guesswork is being eliminated
- It will ensure the correct repair is suggested the first time
- It will showcase any other potential issues
- It will give the technicians more information about your system
