Most Top of the World 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. 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. 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. 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. Electronic leak detection equipment is required so we can ‘listen’ to buried pipes. The device will accurately pinpoint the location of the leak within 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.
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 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.
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.
