Concrete slabs with copper piping run underneath the foundation are common in La Jolla. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. The water coming from under the foundation is referred to as a slab leak. It takes time for the water to become visible since the source generally is not visible. Quick action is of the upmost importance if you think you have a slab leak, this can prevent further damage 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.
Finding the general area of a slab leak from the hot water line is straightforward. The exact location is easy to find with our leak detector once we find the hotspot on the floor. Cold-water line leaks present a much more challenging issue to locate. Listening to a buried pipe is essential and requires special electronic leak detection equipment. Identifying the location of the leak in the slab is possible with our specialized device. Non-invasive electronic detection equipment means we don't have to damage your home to find the location of the issue. Time and costs are reduced because we identify exactly where the repairs need to be done.
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. Our detector locks on to the sound and pinpoints where the issue is. Because the sound travels through the slab, it is not necessary to dig up the floor to search for the problem. Non-invasive and non-destructive techniques are always used.
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.
