A hydrostatic test is a process is plugging the main drain line that comes out from the house, filling the drain pipe with water up to slab level and watching the water level for up to 15 minutes.  If the drainage system does not fill to slab hight or if the water level begins to drop. A falling water level indicates a slab leak in the drain piping under the house.  Hydrostatic drain testing should be performed before you purchase a house when purchasing a property at high risk.
