A property management company called ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing because of a leak on the 2 1/2″ copper pipe in the ceiling. Their maintenance manager explained that two couplings and 1 foot long pipe would be needed. The pipe was exposed in the hallway by unit 225. Maintenance had shut the water off to the building.
The ASAP technician laid out plastic sheeting on the ground and set up plastic waste bins to catch water. He cut out the 2 1/2″ copper pipe in the ceiling to drain the water into the plastic waste bins. The water continue to leak out so the tech put an expansion tool inside the copper pipe to stop the water flow. He then installed a new 2 1/2″ coupling and a section of type L copper in place. Maintenance turned the water supply back on.
The ASAP technician checked the systems for leaks and proper function. There are no leaks at this time and the lines are working properly. Lastly the technician cleaned up the work area.
