21 Jan Locating a Leaking Pipe | Condo in Hollywood, FL
Job Location: Multi-Story Condominium Building located in Hollywood FL, with drain pipe leaking between two units on two different floors.
Cause of Issue: Cracked PVC joint and poor Plumbing installation.
Resolution: The owner that lived in the lower unit seen water dripping from her ceiling and contacted Management in the association. The Management team then contacted Rhino Rooter to investigate the situation. The plumbers cut open the ceiling and found that tub drain pipe was cracked at a PVC joint, the pipe that was installed was a tubular style pipe that was not connected properly causing leaks at fittings. The upstairs unit’s wall in the closet also had to be cut open to access the waste and overflow section of the drain line. The entire waste and overflow were replaced with new SCH 40 PVC pipe and solvent weld fittings (glued fittings to pipe) with a new chrome tub shoe drain and overflow plate cover. After installation, the drain function properly with no leaks and drained much more efficiently.
