Plumbing in most homes in Bolsa Chica-Heil utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. It is common for cracks to develop in even the most reliable copper piping over time. Since the leak source is under concrete and is not easily detectible, by the time you notice the issue it has caused damage already. This is what is known as a slab leak. 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. The exact location is easy to find with our leak detector once we find the hotspot on the floor. Leaks from the cold-water line are much more difficult 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. We avoid digging up your floor to find the issue by using the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Pinpoint accuracy helps us reduce time and costs for your 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 equipment isolates the sound and locks on to the issue location. 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.
It takes a discipline of skills for slab leak detection, repair repiping 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.
