Element Plumbing & Gas assisted this client in Wangara with underground water leak repair. Carrying out this important job in a timely manner meant that the client saved themselves a hefty repair fee, with minimal disruption to the property.
Our expert team made use of our advanced leak detection techniques in order to locate the issue 1 metre below an industrial lot common driveway. Had this been left for much longer, it may have caused damage to the foundation of surrounding buildings. Leaks found inside constructed buildings, in behind walls, under concrete slabs, or in this case, under asphalt, can easily go undetected if commercial facility owners and tenants do not pay attention to their water bill and signs of unwanted moisture pooling around their building.
