What does a slab leak look like?


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.


How can I tell if I have a slab leak?

Although it may not be possible to see the slab leak you can use the following techniques to diagnose an unseen leak:

  1. Unusually High Water Bills – even the smallest hole in a water pipe can lose thousands of gallons per month. Check your water bill increased usage you cannot explain.
  2. Sound of Running Water – if you can hear water moving quickly through the pipes when faucets & appliances are off, you may have an issue.
  3. Moving Water Meter – If all appliances and faucets in the house are turned off and the meter is stil moving, you could have a problem.
  4. Standing Water or Saturated Ground - If a leak is left undetected for a long time, water can create a damp patch on the floor

What causes a slab 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:

Slab Leak Broken Copper Pipe
  1. Age - as a pipe gets older leaks become more likely. Our experience shows that homes over 25 years old are more likely to suffer a slab leak, but homes of any age can be affected.
  2. Incorrect Installation – if the pipe was bent or damaged when installed, problems can occur in later years.
  3. Temperature Changes - as the slab increases & decreases the pipes expand and contract. Vibration or or edges rubbing against the pipe can create holes.

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.


How can I find a slab leak?


Hot water lines associated with slab leaks make them easier to find. A hot spot on the floor will give the approximate location, allowing for us to quickly find the accurate location using a leak detector. 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. 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. We keep costs of the repair to a minimum by find the exact location.


What is slab leak detection & how does it work?


The source of the leak requires electronic equipment that is made for slab leak detection. The flow of water and size of the hole gives the leak a unique sound at a customized frequency. The problem is located when the detector picks up the sound. 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.


How do I repair a slab leak?


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.
