Plumbing in most homes in Homelands utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. It is common for cracks to develop in even the most reliable copper piping over time. 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. 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. Cold-water line leaks present a much more challenging issue to locate. Electronic leak detection equipment is required so we can ‘listen’ to buried pipes. Our equipment reveals the exact location of the leak in the slab. Finding the location of the issue is done in a non destructive way because we use the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Pinpoint accuracy helps us reduce time and costs for your repair.
Slab leak detection uses electronic equipment to locate the source of the leak. Sounds are emitted at varying frequencies from leaks depending on the size of the hole and the flow of the water. The sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. 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.
