Plumbing in most homes in Lake Elsinore utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. Cracks and holes are known to develop over time in copper piped plumbing. 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. 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.
It’s fairly easy to find the location of a slab leak from the hot water line. Hot spots on the floor let us know where to use our electronic leak detector and zero in on the exact location of the problem. Leaks from the cold-water line are much more difficult to locate. Listening to a buried pipe is essential and requires special electronic leak detection equipment. The device will accurately pinpoint the location of the leak within the slab. Finding the location of the issue is done in a non destructive way because we use the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Pinpoint accuracy helps us reduce time and costs for your repair.
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 equipment isolates the sound and locks on to the issue location. Because the sound travels through the slab, it is not necessary to dig up the floor to search for the problem. Our operations don't cause damage and are non-invasive.
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.
