Slab Leak Repair in Southwest Anaheim

What is a slab leak?

The plumbing systems in many properties in Southwest 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. 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. Slab leaks can cause substantial damage. It is important to act quickly to minimize exposure to your home.

What does a slab leak look like?


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.


How can I tell if I have a slab leak?

Although it may not be possible to see the slab leak you can use the following techniques to diagnose an unseen leak:

  1. Unusually High Water Bills – even the smallest hole in a water pipe can lose thousands of gallons per month. Check your water bill increased usage you cannot explain.
  2. Sound of Running Water – if you can hear water moving quickly through the pipes when faucets & appliances are off, you may have an issue.
  3. Moving Water Meter – If all appliances and faucets in the house are turned off and the meter is stil moving, you could have a problem.
  4. Standing Water or Saturated Ground - If a leak is left undetected for a long time, water can create a damp patch on the floor

What causes a slab 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:

Slab Leak Broken Copper Pipe
  1. Age - as a pipe gets older leaks become more likely. Our experience shows that homes over 25 years old are more likely to suffer a slab leak, but homes of any age can be affected.
  2. Incorrect Installation – if the pipe was bent or damaged when installed, problems can occur in later years.
  3. Temperature Changes - as the slab increases & decreases the pipes expand and contract. Vibration or or edges rubbing against the pipe can create holes.

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.


How can I find a slab leak?


Hot water lines associated with slab leaks make them easier to find. 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. 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. The device will accurately pinpoint the location of the leak within the slab. We avoid digging up your floor to find the issue by using the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Pinpoint accuracy helps us reduce time and costs for your repair.


What is slab leak detection & how does it work?


Slab leak detection uses electronic equipment to locate the source of the leak. The flow of water and size of the hole gives the leak a unique sound at a customized frequency. The problem is located when the detector picks up the sound. 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.


How do I repair a slab leak?


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.
