Most Midway homes have copper piping under a concrete slab type foundation. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. 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. 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.
It’s fairly easy to find the location of a slab leak from the hot water line. A hot spot on the floor will give the approximate location, allowing for us to quickly find the accurate location using a leak detector. Cold-water line leaks present a much more challenging issue to locate. Because the pipe is buried, we must use an electro-acoustic leak detection device so we can ‘hear’ where the issue is. Identifying the location of the leak in the slab is possible with our specialized device. 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.
The source of the leak requires electronic equipment that is made for slab leak detection. Water flow and hole size cause a sound to be emitted with a unique frequency by the leak. The problem is located when the detector picks up the sound. We don't dig up your floor to search for the problem because we can detect the sound coming through the slab. Non-destructive and non-invasive techniques are our specialty.
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.
Many skills are required to successfully find and repair a slab leak; detection, re-piping and water damage restoration.
