The plumbing systems in many properties in Brea-Olinda were installed with copper piping buried in the large concrete foundation. Cracks and holes are known to develop over time in copper piped plumbing. 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.
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. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact location of cold water-line leaks. Because the pipe is buried, we must use an electro-acoustic leak detection device so we can ‘hear’ where the issue is. We use specialized devices that show us with pinpoint accuracy where the slab leak is located. We avoid digging up your floor to find the issue by using the latest electronic leak detection equipment. We keep costs of the repair to a minimum by find the exact location.
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 sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. 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.
