Slab Leak Repair in De Luz

What is a slab leak?

Plumbing in most homes in De Luz 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.

What does a slab leak look like?


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.


How can I tell if I have a slab leak?

Although it may not be possible to see the slab leak you can use the following techniques to diagnose an unseen leak:

  1. Unusually High Water Bills – even the smallest hole in a water pipe can lose thousands of gallons per month. Check your water bill increased usage you cannot explain.
  2. Sound of Running Water – if you can hear water moving quickly through the pipes when faucets & appliances are off, you may have an issue.
  3. Moving Water Meter – If all appliances and faucets in the house are turned off and the meter is stil moving, you could have a problem.
  4. Standing Water or Saturated Ground - If a leak is left undetected for a long time, water can create a damp patch on the floor

What causes a slab 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:

Slab Leak Broken Copper Pipe
  1. Age - as a pipe gets older leaks become more likely. Our experience shows that homes over 25 years old are more likely to suffer a slab leak, but homes of any age can be affected.
  2. Incorrect Installation – if the pipe was bent or damaged when installed, problems can occur in later years.
  3. Temperature Changes - as the slab increases & decreases the pipes expand and contract. Vibration or or edges rubbing against the pipe can create holes.

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.


How can I find a slab leak?


It’s fairly easy to find the location of a slab leak from the hot water line. 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. 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. Finding the exact location can greatly reduce the time and cost of the repair.


What is slab leak detection & how does it work?


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 problem is located when the detector picks up the sound. 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.


How do I repair a slab leak?


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.
