Plumbing in most homes in Ridgecrest Estates utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. It is common for cracks to develop in even the most reliable copper piping over time. 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. Quick action is of the upmost importance if you think you have a slab leak, this can prevent 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.
Generally it is pretty easy to use the hot water line to find the general area of a slab leak. 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. An electronic water leak detection device must be used to ‘listen’ to the length of buried pipe. Our equipment reveals the exact location of the leak in the slab. Non-invasive electronic detection equipment means we don't have to damage your home to find the location of the issue. Time and costs are reduced because we identify exactly where the repairs need to be done.
The source of the leak requires electronic equipment that is made for slab leak detection. The flow of water and size of the hole gives the leak a unique sound at a customized frequency. The sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. We don't dig up your floor to search for the problem because we can detect the sound coming through the slab. Our operations don't cause damage and are non-invasive.
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. All or our plumbers are also licensed and insured contractors who can take on the task. We are insurance specialists and work directly with your homeowners insurance company so you don’t have to.
