We use state-of-the-art pressure testing pipes, video and audio inspection, and moisture probing technology to detect a slab leak. Here is how our slab leak detection process works:
On your plumbing system, we will add a water pressure to perform a water pressure test. We will turn off the faucets and fixtures in your home, closing the angle stop of leaky faucets or replacing them. We will turn off the main valve too. Once we locate the actual piping, we will trace the area to find the source of the water leak.
We will determine the source of the leak to find the leaky pipe. We will use a transmitter to trace the path we think the leak is located. We will use the pipe locator to find the location. The pipe locator picks up signals the pipes send out. Using a marker tape, we will mark the area on the floor to find the piping under it that we suspect to be source of the leak.
We will use the electronic detection equipment with a microphone to listen along the marked or taped area of the pipes to uncover the leak’s exact location. We will return the microphone to the location where we received the highest reading. If no reading is detected, we will add CO2 gas to your plumbing system to increase the sound level by ten times. Once we have found the source of the leak, our team will recommend the best slab repair option that suits your situation.
