Plumbing in most homes in Suncrest utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. Cracks and holes are known to develop over time in copper piped plumbing. 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. If you suspect you have a slab leak, it is important to act quickly and avoid any 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.
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. Because the pipe is buried, we must use an electro-acoustic leak detection device so we can ‘hear’ where the issue is. 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. Time and costs are reduced because we identify exactly where the repairs need to be done.
It is important to use electronic equipment to locate the exact source of your slab leak. Water flow and hole size cause a sound to be emitted with a unique frequency by the leak. Our detector locks on to the sound and pinpoints where the issue is. Sounds traveling through the slab helps us isolate the issue and avoid digging up your floor. The entire operation is non-invasive & non-destructive.
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.
