Heading toward completion
Flood testing is a crucial part of the process to ensure any leaks, small membrane splits or faults are identified and corrected. While the planter boxes were filled with water to test, the terrace podium slab required alternative measures to test the integrity of the waterproofing.
Flood testing the planter boxes
International Leak Detection (ILD) Australia were called in to use a low voltage test method. As described by ILD Australia, their EFVM® technician reads the electrical flow travelling across the membrane mapping the breaches with pinpoint accuracy.
All membranes achieved 100% accuracy with no leaks or faults detected. Lewis from ILD Australia was thoroughly impressed and expressed how good the installation was.
The team from Stone Will Landscaping happy with the watertight membrane.
