What is static testing?
This test is usually confined to your drainage system and required when you have foundation repair issues. It is a process where the drains are capped on one end and then filled with water to floor level. The test is called static because the water remains stationary or (static) with no additional pressure being applied. Normally, it is performed by placing a test ball in the upstream side of the clean out of the main drain outside and then removing a toilet where the water will be added and monitored for a period of 15 minutes. A drop in water level would indicate a failed test at which point we would suggest a camera inspection and further testing and isolation.
What Our Customers Say
Absolutely loved how the business communicated with me; they sent me a picture of the tech before he arrived at my house. Tommy, the technician, was very knowledgeable in answering my questions. Will be a repeat customer!
Outstanding service! Every step of the process was met with enthusiasm and a complete explanation -
from the time I contacted Half Moon through the technicians arrival and the work he performed. Tommy quickly diagnosed and corrected two issues for our household. He was a perfect representative to a company we have come to trust. Thank you Tommy and thank you Half Moon.
Sam visited my house the other day for some minor issues. He was on time, was able to quickly diagnose the issues, and get them repaired on the spot. His demeanor was friendly and professional, and he took the time to explain the details regarding my repairs. This isn't the first time I've used Half-Moon Plumbing, and this visit exceeded the already high quality of service I've come to expect from them.
The plumbing tech that helped us switch from a standard hot water tank to a new tankless unit really knew his stuff. He came out to do an initial inspection and estimate. He explained everything that would be required for the installation and the types of tankless units we could go with. The installation was done professionally and cleanly with everything plumbed and routed as expected. I know we're going to enjoy having a constant supply of hot water while saving on our monthly gas bills. Also want to mention that I read the Half Moon Plumbing newsletter every month. When you see the kind of situations they are able to resolve for homeowners (where no one else could), you can see how committed they are to solving issues the right way, no matter how difficult the task is. I look forward to using Half Moon Plumbing in the future!
