The plumbing systems in many properties in Fullerton were installed with copper piping buried in the large concrete 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.
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. 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. Our equipment reveals the exact location of the leak in the slab. We avoid digging up your floor to find the issue by using the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Time and costs are reduced because we identify exactly where the repairs need to be done.
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 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. The entire operation is non-invasive & non-destructive.
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.
