The plumbing systems in many properties in Northwest Anaheim were installed with copper piping buried in the large concrete foundation. It is common for cracks to develop in even the most reliable copper piping over time. This leads to what is known as a slab leak. Because the leak source is not visible by the time you actually see the water damage can be extensive. To minimize damage to your home from a slab leak is important to act quickly.
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.
Hot water lines associated with slab leaks make them easier to find. By using the electronic leak detector around a hot spot on the floor will help us pinpoint the location. Cold-water line leaks present a much more challenging issue to locate. Electronic leak detection equipment is required so we can ‘listen’ to buried pipes. The device will accurately pinpoint the location of the leak within the slab. Finding the location of the issue is done in a non destructive way because we use the latest electronic leak detection equipment. We keep costs of the repair to a minimum by find the exact location.
Detecting a slab leak’s exact location requires electronic equipment. The flow of water and size of the hole gives the leak a unique sound at a customized frequency. The sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. Because the sound travels through the slab, it is not necessary to dig up the floor to search for the problem. 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.
