When You Have a Slab Leak, You Can Always Count on Us to Repair It Immediately

One way to confirm that you have a slab leak is to familiarize yourself with the signs of a slab leak. The signs and symptoms of a slab leak include:

  • If there is water under your pipes, it will travel through your home’s foundation and cause warm spots to form near the leaky pipe.
  • If water continues to run even when you are not using any water due to damaged and leaky pipes, your water bill will increase drastically.
  • If you discover mold and mildew in the carpeted rooms of your home, you have a leaky pipe.
  • If you hear water running throughout your home even when you are not using any water, the sound is coming from under your pipes.
  • If you find cracks on walls and floors of your home, you have a leaky pipe.

All these signs point to a slab leak. You may experience one or more of these signs. Regardless of the number of signs you notice, calling us to make sure that you have a slab leak in your home is important. We can show up when you call us and detect, locate, and repair the slab leak the same day.

Our Slab Leak Detection Process

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:

Step 1: Detect a Slab Leak

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.

Step 2: Locate the Leaky Pipe

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.

Step 3: Pinpoint the Location 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.

The 3 Ways to Repair Slab Leaks

The three ways to repair slab leaks include:

  • Spot Repair – Open the slab at the leak’s exact location to fix the leaky pipe. For homes with newer plumbing systems, we recommend this option.
  • Reroute or Re-pipe – Remove and replace the old pipe with a new pipe. For homes with older plumbing systems experiencing multiple leaking issues, we recommend this option.
  • Epoxy Pipe Coating – Apply epoxy coating on the interior of the pipe. For homes with a plumbing system experiencing several small leaks, we recommend this option.
