Plumbing issues below a foundation are difficult to detect and can feel intimidating. Addressing these issues requires the expertise of a trained plumber. Warning signs of under-slab plumbing problems include higher-than-usual water bills, wet areas or warm spots in your floor, or cracks in the foundation. Abacus plumbing technicians use advanced technology to detect and isolate slab leaks. We perform targeted repairs by cutting into the slab, resolving the problem, and fixing the impacted slab.
Electronic Leak Detection
Abacus plumbers use advanced leak detection technology to identify leaking pipes and to pinpoint leak locations. This is done by analyzing sound waves produced by leaking pipes and comparing them to sound waves produced by intact pipes. A trained plumber can interpret the data and discover where a leak is coming from. We use electronic leak detection devices to identify leaks in toilets, water supply systems, drains, water pipes, and more.
A sewer camera is a very small camera on the end of a snake, which can be fed into a sewer line. Sewer cameras allow plumbers to inspect sewer lines and locate blockages and damaged areas. Having a visual of a blockage helps the technician determine which line-clearing method should be used.
Yard and Landscaping Drains
The purpose of landscaping drains, or yard drains, is to direct water away from buildings and homes. However, these drains are exposed to the elements and buildup of dirt, silt, roots, and debris can occur. This buildup may cause blockages that prevent water from reaching ditches, cisterns, ponds, and streams. Professional plumbers at Abacus can clear blockages from yard drains and prevent water pooling near homes and buildings.
Hydro jetting, or high-pressure drain cleaning, is a method used by skilled plumbers to clear blockages and buildup from pipes or tanks. Hydro jetting uses a forceful stream of pressurized water to blast stubborn obstacles like hardened sludge or masses of tree roots from sewer lines.
Have you noticed discoloration of your water or inconsistent or weak water pressure? In older homes and buildings, these may be signs of deteriorating water lines and may point to the need to replace old pipes. Abacus plumbers perform repiping services for homes and structures in this condition.
At Abacus, we recommend all residential and commercial clients schedule annual inspections of their sewer and plumbing systems. Regular inspections will reveal vulnerable spots in your plumbing system as well as developing leaks, clogs, and cracks. Early detection of plumbing issues will prevent major damage, expensive repairs, and emergency service calls down the road.
The plumbing team at Abacus keeps abreast of industry developments and advances in technology so that we can always provide the best solutions to our customers.
