Underground PVC Lines Leak

Mock Plumbing has been called out twice in one year to repair a client’s leaking pool lines. Locating the leak is the first task. Sounds easy enough, but water travels the path of least resistance which can have you digging multiple feet from the leak.

On top of that, if the ground is hard and there are tree roots to shovel through it may take an hour or so just to locate the leak. In this particular job, the leak happened to be coming from the pipe under the pipes shown here. A total of four pipes had to be cut and repaired to fix one leak. Instead of making one good glue joint four have to be made.
