The plumbing systems in many properties in Green Valley were installed with copper piping buried in the large concrete foundation. Cracks and holes are known to develop over time in copper piped plumbing. 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. 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.
Hot water lines associated with slab leaks make them easier to find. 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. We use specialized devices that show us with pinpoint accuracy where the slab leak is located. Finding the location of the issue is done in a non destructive way because we use the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Finding the exact location can greatly reduce the time and cost of the 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. We avoid digging up the floor to find the issue because the sound travels 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.
