Slab Leak Repair in Carmel Mountain Ranch

What is a slab leak?

Plumbing in most homes in Carmel Mountain Ranch utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. 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. To minimize damage to your home from a slab leak is important to act quickly.

What does a slab leak look like?


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.


How can I tell if I have a slab leak?

Although it may not be possible to see the slab leak you can use the following techniques to diagnose an unseen leak:

  1. Unusually High Water Bills – even the smallest hole in a water pipe can lose thousands of gallons per month. Check your water bill increased usage you cannot explain.
  2. Sound of Running Water – if you can hear water moving quickly through the pipes when faucets & appliances are off, you may have an issue.
  3. Moving Water Meter – If all appliances and faucets in the house are turned off and the meter is stil moving, you could have a problem.
  4. Standing Water or Saturated Ground - If a leak is left undetected for a long time, water can create a damp patch on the floor

What causes a slab 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:

Slab Leak Broken Copper Pipe
  1. Age - as a pipe gets older leaks become more likely. Our experience shows that homes over 25 years old are more likely to suffer a slab leak, but homes of any age can be affected.
  2. Incorrect Installation – if the pipe was bent or damaged when installed, problems can occur in later years.
  3. Temperature Changes - as the slab increases & decreases the pipes expand and contract. Vibration or or edges rubbing against the pipe can create holes.

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.


How can I find a slab leak?


It’s fairly easy to find the location of a slab leak from the hot water line. A hot spot on the floor will give the approximate location, allowing for us to quickly find the accurate location using a leak detector. Cold-water line leaks present a much more challenging issue to locate. Electronic leak detection equipment is required so we can ‘listen’ to buried pipes. The device will accurately pinpoint the location of the leak within the slab. Non-invasive electronic detection equipment means we don't have to damage your home to find the location of the issue. Finding the exact location can greatly reduce the time and cost of the repair.


What is slab leak detection & how does it work?


Detecting a slab leak’s exact location requires electronic equipment. Leaks emit sound at different frequencies depending on the flow of the water and size of the hole. The sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. We don't dig up your floor to search for the problem because we can detect the sound coming through the slab. Non-destructive and non-invasive techniques are our specialty.


How do I repair a slab leak?


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.
