Hydrostatic testing is part of our sewer inspection services. Through hydrostatic testing, we are able to determine if your plumbing system is effectively sealed and wether leaks are present.
Hydrostatic Testing Houston
To determine if there are leaks present in your underground plumbing system, we perform a hydrostatic test. This test is performed by inserting an inflatable test ball into the building’s main sewer line and inflate the ball to plug the sewer main and fill it with water up to the slab level. We observe the water level for approximately 15 minutes for drops or leaks. If we lose water levels during this time, a leak likely exists, and we will inspect further.
