First, we remove the piping that goes to the meter. We then put a gauge on it and pump up the system. Next, we follow the system and spray down all the fittings and joints to find the leak. In some cases the leak is at the end of the system which allows just an end piece or a valve to be replaced. In other cases, the leak may be in the middle of the pipe which would require it to be cut out or a tract pipe has to be inserted. If this is the case, Centerpoint has already been called and they have removed the meter. We then get a permit from the city and meet with the inspector. Once the city inspector approves the work then Centerpoint brings the meter back out to the location and installs it.
