Plumbing in most homes in Hillsdale utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. It is common for cracks to develop in even the most reliable copper piping over time. 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.

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. Electronic leak detection equipment is required so we can ‘listen’ to buried pipes. 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.
Detecting a slab leak’s exact location requires electronic equipment. Water flow and hole size cause a sound to be emitted with a unique frequency by the leak. The sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. We avoid digging up the floor to find the issue because the sound travels 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.
