Pressure Testing Pipes, Sonic Underground Pipe Location, Pipe Leak Listening & Underwater Listening For Leaks

Pressure testing pipes and underground listening with the Fisher XLT-30 and underwater listening with the Hydrophone are available.  I can usually pinpoint the location of underground leaking pipes, allowing a quicker repair with minimal excavation to access the pipe.

Bruce Scans Liner With LEAK TRAC

LEAK TRAC 2200 Electronic Vinyl Liner Inspections

Most vinyl liner pools as well as fiberglass pools can have the liner inspected electronically for leaks with the LEAK TRAC 2200.  This extremely sensitive tool floods the pool water with a small electrical charge (only 0.5 amps) and can identify the exact location of any leaks in the liner.  It will find even the smallest pinhole that can barely be seen with the eye.  It is great in turbid water conditions, and can find even the smallest termite pinholes.  It can also be used to verify a new liner is perfect at the installation time.  Sadly it cannot be used in cement pools.

 
 
 
Vinyl Liner Pool With Over 20 Holes
 
Vinyl liner pools with over 20 holes will be charged extra based upon the excess time involved and materials used.  Liners with over 20 holes will be evaluated for care recommendations and how much remaining life is left before replacement is needed.  Some liner pools (most often above ground type) with pinhole leaks from insects boring holes from beneath, will be patched or if an excessive nunber of holes, sealed with flexible sealer.

Gunite / Concrete Pools With Extreme Cracking
Cement pools with long major cracks will be charged extra based upon the time and materials used.  Cracks will be sealed with color matched epoxy cement.  In our brutal northeast winters with so many freeze / thaw cycles, it is common for old cracks to need resealing each year.
 
Pools With Attached Spas or Vanishing Edge Catch Basins
Inspecting the spa or catch basin in addition to the main pool will be extra, the additional charge will be based upon the complexity of the piping system and the time involved.

Sea Snake Pipe Inspection Camera & Reel System

The RIDGID Micro-Drain D65 video camera and reel can inspect the inside of pipes as small as 1 1/4" diameter, for blockages, leaks, collapsed piping, while recording video and still images of the pipe. Maximum range is 65 feet.

Underwater Digital Photos of Damaged Areas & Repairs

Underwater photos and video of damage areas are available.  These can be extremely useful for an insurance claim, a warantee issue or to document the pool condition at the time of a home resale.
