Most Shelltown 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. This is what we call a slab leak. It is often difficult to find the source of the leak because the pipe is hidden in the slab and water can escape slowly over time. To minimize damage to your home from a slab leak is important to act quickly.
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. The exact location is easy to find with our leak detector once we find the hotspot on the floor. Cold-water line leaks present a much more challenging issue to locate. An electronic water leak detection device must be used to ‘listen’ to the length of buried pipe. Our equipment reveals the exact location of the leak in the slab. 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.
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. Our detector locks on to the sound and pinpoints where the issue is. Sounds traveling through the slab helps us isolate the issue and avoid digging up your floor. Our operations don't cause damage and are non-invasive.
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.
