Concrete slabs with copper piping run underneath the foundation are common in Bonsall. Despite the fact that copper is a reliable plumbing material, cracks and holes can develop over time. Since the leak source is under concrete and is not easily detectible, by the time you notice the issue it has caused damage already. This is what is known as a slab leak. If you suspect you have a slab leak, it is important to act quickly and avoid any 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. 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. Non-invasive electronic detection equipment means we don't have to damage your home to find the location of the issue. Finding the exact location can greatly reduce the time and cost of the repair.
Slab leak detection uses electronic equipment to locate the source of the leak. Sounds are emitted at varying frequencies from leaks depending on the size of the hole and the flow of the water. 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. Non-destructive and non-invasive techniques are our specialty.
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.
