Save Money – Find the Leak & Stop It !
Is your house flooding? Is water coming from the walls but you do not know what to do? Gem Statewide Plumbing specializes in electronic leak detection. Water and sewer leaks under the slab of a home can go undetected for long periods of time. We are experts at locating these leaks through new technology.
As new homes are built with concrete foundations, slab leaks will occur which may surface from any imperfection in the concrete foundation. If you notice water surfacing in a particular area, that does not mean the water leak in the pipe is right there. Remember, water will find the path of least resistance. That is why it is vital to have a professional plumbing contractor with all the right equipment to come out and locate the leak.
Camera inspection is a new and cost-effective way of determining the condition and exact location of a main sewer line. Our Sarasota and Charlotte County plumbers send the camera down the pipe and it videos its journey to the city sewer. From this we can tell if a pipe has any low spots, root intrusions, fractures or broken spots which could restrict flow.
If problems are discovered, a locator can be used to find where the spot is and how deep underground the pipe is. This information is important when making spot repairs. Recently, new homeowners have been using this technology to inspect sewer lines in their prospective homes for any damage, prior to making a purchase.
