Water Leak Detection - Pressure Gauge

A water leak test does not locate leaks. What it does do is tell you whether or not you have a leak.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

The Texas foundation repair company Advanced Foundation Repair’s latest video, “DIY Water Leak Detection Test Demo“, expands their free DIY online educational series. “Believe it or not water leak detection is part of foundation repair,” comments Fred Marshall, owner of Advanced Foundation Repair and narrator of the educational video series.

Viewers can follow easy-to-understand, step by step instructions on how to do a water detection test for both sewer leaks and water leaks. Water leak detection equipment includes items found at local hardware stores:

  • Shovel if need to uncover the sewer clean outs.
  • Sewer Balloon to test for sewer leaks.
  • Pressure Gauge that can be screwed onto a tap to test for water leaks.

Advanced Foundation Repair worked with Halshall Plumbing on this latest video. “A water leak test does not locate leaks. It only tells you whether or not you have a leak,” stresses Halshall Master Plumber, Bill Autry. “Remember leaking sewer or water lines can cause serious damage to your foundation, so make sure to get them fixed.”
