The plumbing systems in many properties in El Cerrito were installed with copper piping buried in the large concrete foundation. Cracks and holes are known to develop over time in copper piped plumbing. 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. 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. A hot spot on the floor will give the approximate location, allowing for us to quickly find the accurate location using a leak detector. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact location of cold water-line leaks. An electronic water leak detection device must be used to ‘listen’ to the length of buried pipe. Our equipment reveals the exact location of the leak in the slab. Modern electronic leak detection equipment means you do not have to dig into the floor to find the problem. Pinpoint accuracy helps us reduce time and costs for your repair.
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. Sounds traveling through the slab helps us isolate the issue and avoid digging up your floor. 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.
