Concrete slabs with copper piping run underneath the foundation are common in Lake Wohlford. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. The water coming from under the foundation is referred to as a slab leak. It takes time for the water to become visible since the source generally is not visible. 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.
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. Cold-water line leaks present a much more challenging issue to locate. An electronic water leak detection device must be used to ‘listen’ to the length of buried pipe. 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. Leaks emit sound at different frequencies depending on the flow of the water and size of the hole. Our detector locks on to the sound and pinpoints where the issue is. We avoid digging up the floor to find the issue because the sound travels 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.
