Most South Crest 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. 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. 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.
Finding the general area of a slab leak from the hot water line is straightforward. A hot spot on the floor will give the approximate location, allowing for us to quickly find the accurate location using a leak detector. Leaks from the cold-water line are much more difficult to locate. Listening to a buried pipe is essential and requires special electronic leak detection equipment. The device will accurately pinpoint the location of the leak within the slab. We avoid digging up your floor to find the issue by using the latest electronic leak detection equipment. Time and costs are reduced because we identify exactly where the repairs need to be done.
It is important to use electronic equipment to locate the exact source of your slab leak. Sounds are emitted at varying frequencies from leaks depending on the size of the hole and the flow of the water. The sound is picked up by the detector and used to locate the problem. Sounds traveling through the slab helps us isolate the issue and avoid digging up your floor. 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.
