Locating Leaks Beneath your Pool and Yard
The entire state of Florida is classified as having a karst landscape which means that it is formed from the dissolution of soluble rocks. This includes limestone which is what the soil in Florida is made of. This is why Florida has more sinkhole activity than any other state in the country. So it is important to have a professional inspect your home and yard to see if you may be vulnerable to having leaks and sinkholes beneath your Florida pool and yard.
Foundation Pros of Florida are experts in inspecting and locating leaks before they become a major issue. Cal-Tech Testing, Inc. started Foundation Professionals of Florida. We are a leader in the geotechnical industry, and soil engineering is a principal specialty of Cal-Tech Testing, Inc. We have the knowledge and experience to get your soil and ground tested to see if there are any leaks that could result in a sinkhole beneath your pool or in your yard.
Foundation Professionals of Florida will inspect the interior and exterior of your home for signs of sinkhole activity. Some of the things we will look for are:
- Leaning fences, trees or landscaping
- Soft soil spots on the ground
- Driveway cracks
- Sidewalk cracks
- Sloping or uneven floors
- Sticking doors or windows
If we see any of these signs, we will do further testing and find the solution you need to prevent and repair any leaks in your Florida home and yard.
Solutions to Prevent Sinkholes in your Florida Home
Foundation Professional of Florida can fix leaks and prevent sinkhole activity by using compaction grouting to firm loose soil. This compaction grouting increases the density of the soil layer to prevent sinkhole formation.
If we find that there is a void that has occurred in your yard, we do void filling using high strength polyurethane foam. This requires drilling small holes into the affected area and the polyurethane foam is injected into the holes as a liquid and in just a few seconds, it reaches its final volume into a foam material. It cures quickly so that the area can be used immediately after the repair. This is a permanent solution since it will never lose its density. This process allows the repair to cover a large area in just a little time.
