Most Dana Point homes have copper piping under a concrete slab type foundation. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. This leads to what is known as a slab leak. Because the leak source is not visible by the time you actually see the water damage can be extensive. 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.
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. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact location of cold water-line leaks. Electronic leak detection equipment is required so we can ‘listen’ to buried pipes. Identifying the location of the leak in the slab is possible with our specialized device. We avoid digging up your floor to find the issue by using the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Time and costs are reduced because we identify exactly where the repairs need to be done.
Slab leak detection uses electronic equipment to locate the source of the leak. Water flow and hole size cause a sound to be emitted with a unique frequency by the leak. The equipment isolates the sound and locks on to the issue location. 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.
Water damage restoration, repiping, and detection and slab leak repairs take a variety of skills. All or our plumbers are also licensed and insured contractors who can take on the task. Don’t worry about dealing with your insurance company. We will help you every step of the way.
