Hydrostatic testing is a method that tests drain pipes for strengths and weaknesses, such as leaks. This is one of our underground sewer repair services here at L&P Plumbing. Our plumbers will fill the drain system with water, noting if the water level goes down with time. A leak is suspected if there is a drop in water level.
No matter how high in quality your pipes are, they don’t last forever. They corrode, joints come apart, they get strangled by tree roots, and they can crack due to the weight of your home and the surrounding soil. When any of these things happen, leaks can result – either under your foundation, in your yard or under slabs.
The tricky part is, when this happens, it’s usually out of sight, out of mind. You may not even know you have a leak for months or even years. Hydrostatic testing is an effective method of learning if your pipes are leaking.
As part of our underground sewer repair services, L&P Plumbing offers hydrostatic testing throughout the greater Austin metro area.
We can use it on:
- Sewer lines
- Storm lines
- Water main lines
- Dry wells
Thanks to our competitively priced rates and professional service, L&P Plumbing is backed by several years of experience with this type of testing for residential and commercial clients.

The Costs of Water Leaks
Undetected leaks cost homeowners a lot of money, thousands if not more. It’s important to locate and address leaking pipes to save money and preserve the integrity of your plumbing system and home. In fact, leaks contribute to a large portion of home repair costs annually. There can be several causes of water damage, including flooding, faulty plumbing, leaky fixtures, appliance failures, and irrigation system problems. Other leaks occur under the foundation or slab, which are the hardest ones to detect.
Many homeowners underestimate the risk that water damage poses to their homes. Because it’s the largest and most significant investment you will ever make, it’s important to preserve your home’s plumbing system so it can continue to serve you well through the years.
