Ask a Portland Plumber: How to Repair a Leaking Pipe

A customer called to report that he had some sort of leak in the plumbing under his front yard. He wanted a sprinkler system but he couldn’t have one installed until the leak was fixed.

There are several different potential causes for this type of problem. To properly diagnose the issue, we use advanced technology to pinpoint the location of a leak so that it can be fixed with a minimum of damage to your landscaping, driveway, or walkway. This is a huge improvement over previous methods of leak detection that required tearing up property and plumbing until the location of the problem could be found.

One method we use is sending a high-resolution camera down plumbing to spot any breaks or cracks. This camera is attached to a flexible cable and sent through pipes. The camera transmits the image to a monitor so the plumber will know exactly what needs to be done to fix the problem. This allows us to take care of the issue much faster and helps you save a significant amount of money.
