Concrete slabs with copper piping run underneath the foundation are common in Glen Ivy. Despite the fact that copper is a reliable plumbing material, cracks and holes can develop over time. This is what we call a slab leak. It is often difficult to find the source of the leak because the pipe is hidden in the slab and water can escape slowly over time. Quick action is of the upmost importance if you think you have a slab leak, this can prevent 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.
It’s fairly easy to find the location of a slab leak from the hot water line. A hot spot on the floor will give the approximate location, allowing for us to quickly find the accurate location using a leak detector. Locating a cold water-line leak is very challenging. Listening to a buried pipe is essential and requires special electronic leak detection equipment. Identifying the location of the leak in the slab is possible with our specialized device. Finding the location of the issue is done in a non destructive way because we use the latest electronic leak detection equipment. 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. The flow of water and size of the hole gives the leak a unique sound at a customized frequency. Our detector locks on to the sound and pinpoints where the issue is. Because the sound travels through the slab, it is not necessary to dig up the floor to search for the problem. Non-invasive and non-destructive techniques are always used.
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.
