Northstar Leak Detection, our sister company has had great success in locating water leaks in irrigation systems. Remember that an underground leak can occur with either a micro-irrigation system or a high-pressure sprinkler system. We suggest the following:
1. Cap all the spray heads in the system.
2. Turn on the water and wait for puddles to appear on the surface of the soil.
3. Avoid digging in search of the leak–at best, you could unearth much of the system and have to spend time reburying the pipes; at worst, you could cut into a pipe and cause extensive damage. Instead, call in a professional – Northstar Leak Detection – who can use special equipment to trace the leak so you can repair it quickly and efficiently with little damage to the surface. If you know you’re losing water call us to check your system!
Heating and Cooling System Leaks/Slab Leaks
Slab leaks are pressurized plumbing or piping leakage, under or in the concrete floor, found on homes, businesses and industrial facilities built with slab on grade foundations. Also known as under-floor leakage, or in-floor leakage, on domestic water plumbing or heating systems such as radiant system leaks, in-floor heating system leaks, or radiator piping leaks for heating and cooling facilities.
Our sister company Northstar Leak Detection can provide you with leak detection on these types of leaks. Electronic detection of these unique leaks, requires specialized tools such as acoustic leak detectors, and experience, trained leak detectors.
We’re on call for you when you need us. We’ll be there to pin-point where the leak is. Repairs are then easily performed once the exact location is identified, avoiding catastrophic property damage associated with “hunting” for slab leaks with a jack.
