A commercial property management company called ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing because of a leak at the meter behind a Starbucks store in Escondido, CA. The property manager gave ASAP permission to perform a leak investigation.
ASAP used a submersible water pump to remove water from inside the water meter located behind the Starbucks back door. The tech shut off the water at the 2″ backflows located by the planter next to the building. The tech then exposed the leaking 2″ meter flange. He checked with the surrounding businesses to see if they too were affected by the water shut off. The surrounding businesses were also affected; they had no water when the backflow was turned off.
ASAP will send an estimate to the property management company to repair the water line. The water will need to be turned off for the majority of the day in order to repair the line.
