Plumbing in most homes in Lilac utilize copper piping underneath a concrete foundation. Copper pipes are know to be susceptible to developing cracks and holes as time goes on. 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. Quick action is of the upmost importance if you think you have a slab leak, this can prevent 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.
It’s fairly easy to find the location of a slab leak from the hot water line. 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.
The source of the leak requires electronic equipment that is made for slab leak detection. Sounds are emitted at varying frequencies from leaks depending on the size of the hole and the flow of the water. The equipment isolates the sound and locks on to the issue location. We don't dig up your floor to search for the problem because we can detect the sound coming 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.
