What are slab leaks?

Simply put, slab leaks are when one of the water pipes underneath the concrete slab of the house foundation begins leaking.

What causes slab leaks?

Rest assured, such a leak is not caused by any form of homeowner negligence. In fact, the four most noted reasons are merely due to chemical composition or environmental factors. Mostly, slab leaks are a result of corrosion. Because the pipes are underground, their contact with both the water and slightly charged ground means that the pipes have a greater chance of corroding either from the outside or inside.

Another reason is due to abrasion. This is caused when water flows through the pipes and its vibrations cause it to rub against a rough substance like concrete. In addition, areas that suffer from earthquakes will find that such pressure build up in the ground bends and creases the pipe, causing uneven wear and tear. Finally, sometimes the issue is just a result of poor construction.

What are signs you are experiencing a slab leak?

Be mindful of the following indicators you may have a slab leak:

● You hear running water when all of the water in the house is turned off.

● Mildew, moisture, or a hot spot or a cold spot on floor can indicate the location of a leak.

● While excessively high water bills could mean a leak somewhere else, it is still a strong indication when coupled with the other telltale signs of a slab leak.

● There are cracks in the flooring or bubbles in the linoleum.

What are professional solutions?

Because of a slab leak’s elusive nature, we recommend that you do not try to dig into your foundation on your own. As the same time, never allow anyone else to break apart your floor to find a leak as there are modern tools available to us to keep floor disruption at a minimum. To find your leak, we employ electronic amplification equipment to aurally locate the general location of the leak coupled with an electromagnetic pipe locator to accurately pinpoint where the pipe is. Once it is found, the small area of the floor over the pipe is removed and the damage is assessed. To fix it, we can either fix the specific leak spot, replace an entire leaking line, or apply an epoxy pipe coating, perfect for pipes with only minimum damage.
