Water Leak Detection and Repair

Detection of water leaks can be a difficult task and should only be attempted by an expert technician specially trained in leak locating. Decades of experience in leak locating and experimenting with different methods have allowed us to find our preferred method which we have the utmost confidence in. We use geophones, air pressure, and line locators to examine your situation from multiple angles. This allows us to locate your leak with pinpoint precision. After locating your leak, we will present multiple repair options to find the right repair choice for you.

A leak detection system monitors the flow of water through a pipeline. When abnormal behavior is detected, the system cuts off the water flow to the entirety of the household by closing a valve within the leak detector. Leak detection systems are usually installed at the water’s point of entry into the home.

Water Pressure Troubleshooting and Testing

Want to know the basics of pressure testing? It’s always useful to start from the beginning to understand what the term means. Pressure testing explained follows.

Pressure testing or static pressure testing is the test which is carried out after the installation of any pipeline before it is put into use. The purpose of the pressure testing is to investigate the various limits of the pipeline which will test areas such as the reliability, maximum capacity, leaks, joint fittings, and pressure. Without this information the pipe cannot be put into service and the owner/operators have no knowledge if the pipe meets the set requirements.

The information found from pressure testing aids to maintain the safety standards and the upkeep of the pipeline.

When there is a new manufactured piece of equipment the pipelines are initially qualified by using a pressure test/static pressure test and regularly re-qualified at different intervals, which is called, the “modified static pressure test” or “proof pressure test”.

When testing pipelines, they are conducted under the industries or customer’s specifications, filling the vessel with an incompressible liquid, like water or oil. This examines the pipe for any leaks or changes in shape. Generally, dyes are added to the water to detect leaks with ease. When pressure testing, the amount of pressure put onto the vessel is always considerably more than the normal operating pressure. This is to allow for any unexpected pressure levels on the vessel for maximum safety.

There are two methods for pressure tests: hydrostatic and pneumatic. A hydrostatic test is performed by using water as the test medium, whereas a pneumatic test uses air, nitrogen, or any non-flammable and non- toxic gas. At MARS Plumbing, pressure tests must be hydrostatic unless pneumatic tests can be justified.

Drain and Sewer Rooting

How do tree roots end up in your sewer pipe?

Tree roots in your pipes can cause sewer backups and damage, causing many to ask, “How do they even end up there?” One of the ways the roots end up there, is obviously through either a cracked or loose joint in the sewer line. In many municipalities, roughly 50 percent of tree roots citywide enter through defective lateral sewer pipes. This is the underground piping that runs from your residence or place of business to the city’s sewer main. Maintenance of your own lateral sewer pipe and keeping it in good condition is usually your responsibility up to the point where it ties into the main, which at that point it is the cities. To reduce overflows and guard against damage, inspecting the lateral pipe and if there is an issue repairing or replacing in a timely manner can help to avoid major damage.

What causes the roots to grow in pipes?

The tree roots can penetrate the sewer pipe, to feed off the water that lays with in.

This is certainly a question that most would ask, and the simplest answer is that the water vapor, which escapes through either a loose joint or a crack in a pipe attracts the roots. Due to this, tree roots inch towards and eventually will penetrate through any possible opening in a sewer pipe and feed off the water once inside, helping them to grow. This can even happen during the cold winter months when you may think a tree simply lies dormant, but regardless of the time of year, once inside the pipe, the root will continue to grow until it fills the pipe, leading to backups created by a mass formed from different materials unable to pass through such as, paper, grease, and other solid matter.

In the case of a very large root, combining with the mass, this is what leads to a clogged sewer. If the issue does get to the point where your sewer is clogged, you will need to call an expert like the Mars Services Professional Plumbers to rectify the problem and make sure that the roots are removed as well as checking for structural damage in your sewer pipes.

Signs that clogged sewer drains may be blocked due to roots you can look for:

Regardless of how tree roots end up in your sewer line, if you suspect there is some type of blockage, you should address the problem immediately and call your licensed professionals at Mars Services, as once a root has entered the pipe and begins growing, it is just a matter of time before there is complete blockage and eventually a rupture in the pipe. Signs that a sewer line may be experiencing a blockage by tree roots are:

  • Slow flowing drains
  • Gurgling sounds from your toilet bowl 
  • Wet areas around floor drains and washing machine

Blockages in your sewer drain due to roots can lead to major plumbing issues. Knowing why tree roots end up in your sewer is the first step to avoiding a major plumbing disaster.

Sewer rodding is a method used to clean drains, pipes, and sewer lines. It is a specialized method, used by professional and skilled plumbers. Sometimes it is the only method that will guarantee you unblock that pipe or drain.

Camera Services

Video cameras have become one of the most valuable tools in the plumbing industry. Technology has evolved to create waterproof cameras that can provide visual inspections of plumbing that can’t be reached by a technician on their own. The flexible rod allows the camera to travel through the pipe and around corners to see the pipe in its entirety. Real-time video transmission provides our technician with a look at the condition of your pipes and can locate specific problems quickly.

Why you may need plumbing camera inspections:

      • Retrieving Lost Items – Losing a sentimental or valuable item down the drain can seem hopeless. With our video inspection, we can help you save time and money in locating your missing item.
      • Inspecting Potential Homes – Want to make sure you won’t inherit plumbing problems from a previous property owner? Schedule a video inspection of your potential home with our plumbing experts.
      • Inspecting Septic Systems – Our inspections allow you to monitor the health of your septic system and let you know when repairs or maintenance are necessary.
      • Remodeling Inspections – Before you add a bathroom or remodel your kitchen, make sure your plumbing system can withstand new additions and increased waste and flow.

Our video inspection services are the easiest way to prevent future emergencies or determine the cause and location of a present plumbing problem.

HYDRO JETTING

Hydro jetting is a method used by Mars Services to clean clogged or slow sewage lines. A blast of water at high pressure is sent into the lines that will usually remove blockages and build up. Hydro jetting systems normally use about 4000 psi, which works very effectively.

A video inspection should be performed first to determine the cause and location of the problem. If tree roots are a problem, the high pressure should cut through them. However, a snake may need to be used first to tear up heavy roots. Hydro jetting will not solve problems with broken pipes and could cause weakened areas to break. In addition, a video inspection can reduce the possibility of sewage back flushing into other areas.

What can be removed with hydro jetting?

      • For residential work, hydro jetting can remove sand, silt and scale build up as well as hair clogs and other residues that build up on the walls of the pipes.
      • Routine hydro jetting should be done on restaurants to remove grease and food particle build up. This type of service can completely clean pipes of residual build up in ways that snaking can not. Snaking out pipes only breaks up the clogs but leaves build up remaining on the interior walls.
      • Hydro jetting is also environmentally friendly, no harsh chemicals are needed.

While hydro jetting is frequently used in commercial plumbing, it can be extremely beneficial to homeowners. If you need to have your plumbing snaked on a regular basis a hydro jetting service will eliminate all the debris in the lines. The service can greatly improve older plumbing lines that have years of build up. It is also particularly useful for homeowners that experience sand and silt build up as chemical cleaners and augers will not flush the system completely.
