Concrete slabs with copper piping run underneath the foundation are common in Belvedere. Despite the fact that copper is a reliable plumbing material, cracks and holes can develop over time. 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. 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.
Generally it is pretty easy to use the hot water line to find the general area of a slab leak. 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. Because the pipe is buried, we must use an electro-acoustic leak detection device so we can ‘hear’ where the issue is. We use specialized devices that show us with pinpoint accuracy where the slab leak is located. We avoid digging up your floor to find the issue by using the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Pinpoint accuracy helps us reduce time and costs for your repair.
It is important to use electronic equipment to locate the exact source of your slab leak. 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. 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.
