Most Victoria homes have copper piping under a concrete slab type foundation. Despite the fact that copper is a reliable plumbing material, cracks and holes can develop 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. 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. 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. Modern electronic leak detection equipment means you do not have to dig into the floor to find the problem. Finding the exact location can greatly reduce the time and cost of the repair.
Slab leak detection uses electronic equipment to locate the source of the leak. Water flow and hole size cause a sound to be emitted with a unique frequency by the leak. 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. 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.
