Plumbing in most homes in Ellis utilize copper piping underneath a concrete 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. To minimize damage to your home from a slab leak is important to act quickly.
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. 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. Pinpoint accuracy helps us reduce time and costs for your repair.
Slab leak detection uses electronic equipment to locate the source of the leak. Sounds are emitted at varying frequencies from leaks depending on the size of the hole and the flow of the water. The sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. 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.
