Most Washington homes have copper piping under a concrete slab type foundation. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. 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.
Hot water lines associated with slab leaks make them easier to find. A hot spot on the floor will give the approximate location, allowing for us to quickly find the accurate location using a leak detector. Locating a cold water-line leak is very challenging. Electronic leak detection equipment is required so we can ‘listen’ to buried pipes. Our equipment reveals the exact location of the leak in the slab. Modern electronic leak detection equipment means you do not have to dig into the floor to find the problem. 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. 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. We don't dig up your floor to search for the problem because we can detect the sound coming through the slab. 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.
