A property management company called ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing because of a leak in a tenant’s ceiling. The leak was coming from the ceiling, near the smoke detector.
The ASAP technician widened the existing hole in the ceiling to perform the leak repair. The water supply to the building was shut off. Approximately a 1 foot of the 1″ copper pipe was cut out. New 1″ copper pipe was soldered in using type L copper. The water supply was turned back on and the technician checked for leaks. There are no leaks at this time in the new line.
The technician also found two spots of green corroded build up, which will likely lead the a leak in the near future. The water supply was shut off to the complex at the back flow. The tech unplugged the recirculating line to the water heater. He cut approximately 2 feet of the 1″ corroded copper line and installed a new copper pipe using a slip coupling and a stop coupling. The water supply was turned back on and the technician checked for leaks. There are no leaks at this time in the new line.
