Plumbing in most homes in San Pasqual 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. 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. The exact location is easy to find with our leak detector once we find the hotspot on the floor. Cold-water line leaks present a much more challenging issue to locate. Listening to a buried pipe is essential and requires special electronic leak detection equipment. We use specialized devices that show us with pinpoint accuracy where the slab leak is located. Finding the location of the issue is done in a non destructive way because we use the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Finding the exact location can greatly reduce the time and cost of the 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 equipment isolates the sound and locks on to the issue location. Because the sound travels through the slab, it is not necessary to dig up the floor to search for the problem. 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.
