The plumbing systems in many properties in Riverside County were installed with copper piping buried in the large concrete foundation. Despite the fact that copper is a reliable plumbing material, cracks and holes can develop over time. This leads to what is known as a slab leak. Because the leak source is not visible by the time you actually see the water damage can be extensive. 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:

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.
Finding the general area of a slab leak from the hot water line is straightforward. 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. We avoid digging up your floor to find the issue by using the latest electronic leak detection equipment. We keep costs of the repair to a minimum by find the exact location.
Detecting a slab leak’s exact location requires electronic equipment. The flow of water and size of the hole gives the leak a unique sound at a customized frequency. The problem is located when the detector picks up the sound. Sounds traveling through the slab helps us isolate the issue and avoid digging up your floor. Non-destructive and non-invasive techniques are our specialty.
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.
