What Causes Slab Leaks

There are many things that can cause slab leaks. There are, however, some common reasons why leaks may occur in copper pipes.

  • Soil may come into contact with the pipes and cause corrosion
  • Ground shifts can cause damage to the pipes
  • Tree roots can intrude the pipes
  • Poor construction that leads to the formation of holes in the pipes
  • Electrolysis-based corrosion of pipes
The pressure that builds in the area can also cause the pipes to bend and leak. If the leak is detected in time, all it may require is repairing a section of the pipe. These are not problems you may have to face every few years such as other plumbing issues like water heater problems and clogged drains. However, slab leaks should be detected in time to prevent any serious complications.

Professional Slab Leak Detection & Repair

Our plumbers use the latest slab leak detection equipment to detect the issue and its location. This includes:

  • Electromagnetic pipeline locators
  • Electronic amplification equipment
  • Gas tracer system
  • Video pipe inspection equipment
We can use a combination of sonic, acoustic, electromagnetic, pressure, and gas tracer detection equipment to locate the leak in metallic or plastic plumbing lines.

Once we have detected the leak and its location, we will typically tunnel under the slab from outside your building. This is better than digging down from within the building. The technique will minimize any impact on the flooring.

Our slab leak detection services can include:

  • Detecting under concrete slab leak
  • Behind/inside walls detection
  • Water/sewer pipe leaks detection
  • Line tracing
  • Underground/yard water and sewer pipe leak detection
  • Hot/cold water lines
  • In line video camera sewer pipe inspection
  • Under foundation leaks
