Most Fallbrook homes have copper piping under a concrete slab type foundation. Despite the fact that copper is a reliable plumbing material, cracks and holes can develop over time. 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. Slab leaks can cause substantial damage. It is important to act quickly to minimize exposure 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. A hot spot on the floor will give the approximate location, allowing for us to quickly find the accurate location using a leak detector. Leaks from the cold-water line are much more difficult to locate. Because the pipe is buried, we must use an electro-acoustic leak detection device so we can ‘hear’ where the issue is. 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. Finding the exact location can greatly reduce the time and cost of the repair.
Detecting a slab leak’s exact location requires electronic equipment. Sounds are emitted at varying frequencies from leaks depending on the size of the hole and the flow of the water. 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. 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.
