What is Leak Detection?

- Cracks in your floor covering, walls, or slab.
- Water coming out from under your walls inside or outside your home.

Mansfield Sewer Leak Detection
Sewer lines can leak for years before being noticed. Since there is generally little pressure inside of them, they are not as obvious as a water line leak. Generally, roots will penetrate a sewer line that is compromised, and then paper or other materials inside the line will get caught in the roots and cause a blockage, which will then overflow into your tub or toilet.
