Why Static Testing is Important

Too much or too little water beneath a foundation creates movement and instability in the structure. A leaking pipe in a home’s plumbing adds to this problem, and it can happen subtly over time. How do you know if a leaking pipe is causing your soil to swell? Trifusion now offers static testing, a service where we insert inflatable test balls to plug the sewer system. The system is then filled up with water; if the water level drops or does not fill to slab level, there is a leak. Once we know a leak is present, we can perform a video pipe inspection to isolate leaks. This is how to determine where water could be causing cracking and shifting in your walls and floors. Call us today to schedule a static test (video optional) and help keep your foundation secure!
