Concrete slabs with copper piping run underneath the foundation are common in South San Diego. 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.
Finding the general area of a slab leak from the hot water line is straightforward. The exact location is easy to find with our leak detector once we find the hotspot on the floor. 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. Identifying the location of the leak in the slab is possible with our specialized device. Finding the location of the issue is done in a non destructive way because we use 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. 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. We avoid digging up the floor to find the issue because the sound travels through the slab. 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.
