Plumbing in most homes in Ballena utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. It is common for cracks to develop in even the most reliable copper piping over time. 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.
It’s fairly easy to find the location of a slab leak from the hot water line. By using the electronic leak detector around a hot spot on the floor will help us pinpoint the location. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact location of cold water-line leaks. An electronic water leak detection device must be used to ‘listen’ to the length of buried pipe. 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. We keep costs of the repair to a minimum by find the exact location.
Slab leak detection uses electronic equipment to locate the source of the leak. Leaks emit sound at different frequencies depending on the flow of the water and size of the hole. 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. Non-invasive and non-destructive techniques are always used.
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.
