Commercial – Fish Counters

Fish Counters

In more modern restaurants of our time, live or catch of the day fish counters become a huge potential source of building asset damage if not maintained or monitored correctly. When left unchecked, fish counter leaks can become a pervasive problem that steadily progresses into becoming an insurance claim by the property operator where large volumes of extremely cold water manage to migrate to both adjacent or lower properties causing significant damage both to other assets or to that of adjacent retail outlets. If fish counters are not monitored through annual checkups, massive additional damage can occur.

Fish Counter Broken Floor Tiles

Fish Counter leaks into a concrete slab due to broken tiles is hugely common due to some preparation counters being mobile for cleanliness. This means that with continuous movement of the heavy counter usually breaks the tiles which can be investigated by LeakDtech Dubai.

Fish Counter Drainage Leaks

Fish Counter drainage lines can be cause for concern when left long enough, where the large volumes of water due to washing and ice melt water over many years can lead to broken pipe joints where water then leaks into the slab around the outside of the pipe, leaching into other building areas.

Meat Preparation Water Traps

A classic issue with many wet floors especially within kitchens or food preparation areas are the water trap floor drains that can become mobile within the floor, rocking slightly within the floor resulting in water leakage into the slab around the exterior of the water trap and into the lower floor areas or along the drainage pipe.

Commercial – Fridge Condensation

Fridge Condensation

Commercial fridges or walk in chillers often fall short of high quality as a result of substandard design, materials or installation which can lead to significant secondary damages as a result of leakage or condensation build up. A common problem can be that of the panels being badly sealed along with doors and other fittings where cold air is released which causes condensation to collect on the slab. Secondly, if the unit has not had a foundation heater installed, huge amounts of water condensate can build up because of a chilled lower concrete slab which can also then become frozen and crack. Lastly the chiller unit normally positioned on the fridge roof must always be checked and maintained where bad insulation or broken condensate pipes can lead to a volume of water again leaking down onto the slab. Lastly another item that is frequently overlooked is to have the surrounding air volume conditioned so that external air does not circulate around either the chiller or fridge body so that external condensation sources can be controlled.

Panel or Door Leakage

If sealant is no properly applied during installation, or if door seals are not maintained, large volumes of water can collect at the entrance to the fridge or chiller which can be located through LeakDtech inspection or detection services.

Lack of Foundation Heater

Should a heater not get installed within the original slab or spread slab structures, the possibility of condensation is high with further concrete damage where monitoring sensors can be installed to warn the facility team of leakage.

Chiller Unit Condensate Pipe Leakage

Chiller units are always cause for concern where insulation is not reviewed or the condensate drainage lines are left untested or checked. Often visual inspections are carried out which miss leaks that modern technologies pick up.

Commercial – Drainage & Domestic Pipe Pressure Testing

Drainage & Domestic Pipe Pressure Testing

Both drainage and domestic pipe pressure testing engagements are a key to maintaining system integrity through the correct application of NDT testing and monitoring to prevent poor or damaged lines leaking water. Most drain lines are acceptance tested using a gravity test but this is not always failsafe and does not fully test the integrity of the pipes to design specifications. To ensure that there are no leaks, LeakDtech Dubai can use innovative technology to inspect both drainage and domestic water lines and ensure that they are safe – all pipes up to 10 bar can be tested in this way or even higher.

Quality Assurance For New Drain Lines

All plumbing drainage lines should be pressure tested to design specifications instead of gravity tests to ensure full proof testing to guarantee quality prior to hand over and acceptance.

Identify Domestic Line Leaks

Domestic water pipes operate under 2 to 4 bar under normal circumstances and as such require proper pressure testing so that any minor joint, elbow fitting leakage can be identified.

Snag Existing Pipelines For Signs Of Leakage

After any commercial property has been in operational use, leakage can occur within both drainage or domestic water pipes where pressure testing every 6 or 12 months can prevent serious damage and rectification costs.
