Most West Ridge 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. 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.
It’s fairly easy to find the location of a slab leak from the hot water line. 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. The device will accurately pinpoint the location of the leak within the slab. Non-invasive electronic detection equipment means we don't have to damage your home to find the location of the issue. Pinpoint accuracy helps us reduce time and costs for your repair.
Slab leak detection uses electronic equipment to locate the source of the leak. Leaks emit sound at different frequencies depending on the flow of the water and size of the hole. The sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. Sounds traveling through the slab helps us isolate the issue and avoid digging up your floor. 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.
