Plumbing in most homes in Normal Heights utilize copper piping underneath a 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. If you suspect you have a slab leak, it is important to act quickly and avoid any 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. The exact location is easy to find with our leak detector once we find the hotspot on the floor. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact location of cold water-line leaks. An electronic water leak detection device must be used to ‘listen’ to the length of buried pipe. The device will accurately pinpoint the location of the leak within the slab. Finding the location of the issue is done in a non destructive way because we use the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Pinpoint accuracy helps us reduce time and costs for your repair.
Detecting a slab leak’s exact location requires electronic equipment. Water flow and hole size cause a sound to be emitted with a unique frequency by the leak. 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.
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.
