Keyhole Surgery On A Bath Waste Area Through A Concrete Slab

This job in Carlton came about Because the owner of the garage below this particular unit noticed a slow leak dripping onto their car.

The Strata manager asked me to check it out. I conducted a few simple tests to identify the source of the leak. In this case, a simple hydrostatic die test was all that was needed to confirm the bath waste and union was the cause of the problem.

The job was the equivalent to keyhole surgery going through the core hole in the concrete floor slab to replace the bath plug and waste union as well as the pipework to the stack. The challenge here was that the work had to be done without breaking a hole through the side of the bath side panel. We did the work this way to save on restoration costs.
