American Leak Detection of Spokane was on top of the world for a recent job. Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort in the ski town of Wenatchee, Washington hired the team to come up and locate a potential leak on their snow-making water system. Since their property is closed for the season, it was the perfect time to address an issue which plagued them last winter.
According to the resort’s website, “No other ski area in Washington receives as much acclaim for the quality of its snow…” The property boasts 36 designated runs spread over 2,000 acres of trails and chutes. With 66 acres of snowmaking, more than any other area in the state, skiers can race down a 2,250 ft. vertical drop.
Leak specialist Jordan spent an entire day at the resort where he completed an electronic leak detection on the high pressure supply lines of their snow equipment. He also used a ground microphone to locate any potential leaks over the lines in question. Ultimately, four leaks were discovered within a 2-mile stretch.
The snow-making lines are being repaired and will soon be ready to blast out snow in the upcoming season.Because, what’s a popular ski resort to do without snow?
American Leak Detection of Spokane and Tri-Cities has served the area since March 1993.
