The plumbing systems in many properties in Grossmont were installed with copper piping buried in the large concrete foundation. 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.
Hot water lines associated with slab leaks make them easier to find. By using the electronic leak detector around a hot spot on the floor will help us pinpoint the location. Locating a cold water-line leak is very challenging. Listening to a buried pipe is essential and requires special electronic leak detection equipment. We use specialized devices that show us with pinpoint accuracy where the slab leak is located. 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.
Detecting a slab leak’s exact location requires electronic equipment. Sounds are emitted at varying frequencies from leaks depending on the size of the hole and the flow of the water. Our detector locks on to the sound and pinpoints where the issue is. We don't dig up your floor to search for the problem because we can detect the sound coming through the slab. 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.
