In response to Re: Hydrostatic test
Why did they do the test in the first place? Was there an obvious problem? If not, and if the company that did the test is also the one quoting the repair, I would get a second opinion. It is easy to do a hydrostatic test and make it fail. And if it does fail, I do not know of anyway they could determine where the leak is without digging up the whole system, unless it is a major leak and a video camera inspection could find the break. Even this is no always possible, depending on the type of pipe involved.
: I am in the process of selling my home. I live in Corpus CHristi Tx. They have done a Hydrostatic test on the drainage system in the slab and it failed. They want $8,000.00-$10,000.00 to fix it. They claim they need to dig under the slab and reroute this small leak. Is there a different way to fix this? Can it not be done from inside the pipeing?
