A slab leak can cause serious damage, so it’s important to take action and contact a professional right away.
What is a Slab Leak?
A slab leak gets its name from the concrete ‘slab’ of your home’s foundation. When there is a leak in a pipe underneath the foundation, it’s called a slab leak, and it can cause a lot of trouble and stress in your home. A slab leak can carry on as a slow trickle for weeks or even months, causing a huge amount of water damage that requires costly slab leak repair and cleanup.
Signs You May Need Foundation Leak Repair
If you have a slab leak, you may see signs like pooling water in your basement, damp carpets or walls, the sound of flowing water behind basement walls, patches of mold growth or escalating water bills. If you see any of these signs call for slab leak repair as soon as possible.
How We Repair Slab Leaks
The hardest part of dealing with a slab leak is finding the problem pipes before they cause extensive damage. After that, the slab leak repair process itself is labor intensive, but straightforward:
- Perform acoustic leak detection to pinpoint the leak or leaky pipe.
- Cut a small entry point into your slab
- Replace the pipe with a high grade copper pipe that is designed for underground plumbing and high pressure environments.
- Look for signs of future slab leaks and recommend any worthwhile preventative measures.
Our plumbers are extremely experienced at dealing with slab leak detection repair and replacement, which is why Concord residents and businesses overwhelmingly call us for their slab leak repair needs.
We Are Concord’s Local Slab Leak Experts
When it comes to foundation leaks – those leaks under your concrete floors – our plumbers rely on electronic leak detection equipment. We use a sonar device to send signals into the ground where the pipes run and listen for the return tones. There is a specific tone that resonates when there is water present.
This electronic slab leak detection process allows us to pinpoint the source of a leak so we don’t have to create exploratory holes in your floor. By using electronic water leak detection in your floor, we can find the problem pipe and leak faster and get to work on your slab leak repair faster, while also minimizing damage to your floor and foundation.
