What is a Slab Leak?
If the water lines running underneath your property’s concrete slab foundation become damaged, a slab leak can occur. Corroded pipes are often the main cause of slab leaks.
This is an especially dangerous plumbing problem due to its location. Leaking water lines under your foundation can cause the surrounding soil to shift away from the slab, which can then result in the slab cracking or settling.
How To Tell If You Have a Slab Leak
Slab leaks can be difficult to notice right away because they show symptoms similar to indoor water leaks: sounds of water running constantly, sudden spike in your water bill, mold growth, and lower water pressure.
However, slab leaks are also accompanied by damp or warm spots in certain areas of your flooring, the water heater running non-stop, water accumulating around your bathroom or kitchen floor, or cracks in the foundation.
Detecting and Fixing Slab Leaks
If you notice signs of a slab leak, contact us for immediate inspection. We will locate the leak before presenting you with repair options. This initial inspection and leak detection will allow us to provide you with more accurate solutions and minimize damage to your property during repair.
The first step to successful slab leak repair is leak detection. We will use a digital pipe locator to trace the route of your underground water line and determine the depth of the pipes.
Next, we will run a leak detector (using acoustic or thermal imaging technology) along your pipeline to pinpoint the exact location of the leak.
Our methods for pipe locating and leak detection are noninvasive. They are designed to provide us with a better understanding of your particular problem so we can recommend the best course of action.
Repairing the Leak
Slab leak repair can be carried out using a number of methods. The particular approach we use will depend on several factors, including the condition of your existing pipes, ease of access to the water line, and the extent of the problem.
Repairing a slab leak is a major undertaking, and you may be wondering at the total cost involved to complete it. However, we are unable to provide an accurate estimate without first conducting an initial inspection and leak detection. This will provide us with the information we need to recommend the best approach for repair.
