The plumbing systems in many properties in Aliso Viejo were installed with copper piping buried in the large concrete foundation. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. This is what we call a slab leak. It is often difficult to find the source of the leak because the pipe is hidden in the slab and water can escape slowly over time. Slab leaks can cause substantial damage. It is important to act quickly to minimize exposure to your home.
If you can see the pipe, even a small leak is easy to trace. Slab leaks occur in the pipes buried deep in the concrete foundation of your home meaning that is not always visible.
Although it may not be possible to see the slab leak you can use the following techniques to diagnose an unseen leak:
While copper pipe is regarded as a reliable and long-lasting plumbing material, it can still fail. Some of the most common causes include:
Whatever the reason for the slab leak, it is important that the problem is found and repaired by a qualified plumber. This will prevent further, more expensive issues.
It’s fairly easy to find the location of a slab leak from the hot water line. Hot spots on the floor let us know where to use our electronic leak detector and zero in on the exact location of the problem. Leaks from the cold-water line are much more difficult to locate. Electronic leak detection equipment is required so we can ‘listen’ to buried pipes. We use specialized devices that show us with pinpoint accuracy where the slab leak is located. Modern electronic leak detection equipment means you do not have to dig into the floor to find the problem. Finding the exact location can greatly reduce the time and cost of the repair.
It is important to use electronic equipment to locate the exact source of your slab leak. Leaks emit sound at different frequencies depending on the flow of the water and size of the hole. The problem is located when the detector picks up the sound. We don't dig up your floor to search for the problem because we can detect the sound coming through the slab. Our operations don't cause damage and are non-invasive.
Once you know you have a slab leak, you have choices for repair. If the pipes are easily accessible we can make a direct repair, but this is rarely the case with slab leaks. We do not usually recommend digging up the floor to repair the leak as this can move the pipe and cause more problems in the future. Instead, a new pipe can be routed through the framework of the house isolating the area with leak.
