Plumbing in most homes in San Diego County utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. 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.
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. An electronic water leak detection device must be used to ‘listen’ to the length of buried pipe. 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. Finding the exact location can greatly reduce the time and cost of the repair.
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. Our detector locks on to the sound and pinpoints where the issue is. We avoid digging up the floor to find the issue because the sound travels through the slab. 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.
