Types Of Plumbing Leaks
If you are suspecting a plumbing leak as the cause of your large water bill, then you have most likely eliminated the easy options. These are the leaking faucets or other fixtures in your home. That leaves only one place for a plumbing leak, under the slab foundation of your home. And not only can you not imagine how a plumber will locate the leak but you are also worried about the cost of the repair bill. However, at Turbo Plumbing and Rooter we always provide our customers will as many affordable options as possible for any plumbing work that they need.
What Is A Slab Leak?
A slab leak is simply a leak that is under the concrete foundation of your home. It can be due to a shift or settling of your home or even the freeze and thaw process of the soil in the winter months. But what makes these leaks a big concern is that they can be the beginning of a very serious issue with toxic black mold growth under your home. Finding and correcting a slab leak is critical to eliminate the health risk to you and your loved ones.
Locating Slab Leaks
In the past, a slab leak meant that a plumbing company would come into your home with sledgehammers and begin breaking up the foundation around all of the plumbing pipes. This was not only costly but created a huge amount of destruction to locate a single leak. But at Turbo Plumbing and Rooter we use the latest technology to avoid demolishing your home. Our tools allow us to amplify the sound of the water leak to locate it. This process is done without disturbing anything in your home.
Repairing A Slab Leak
Once our plumber has located the leak under your foundation, you will be given an estimate for the repairs. Our first choice is always to reroute a new pipe through a crawlspace or attic to reduce the amount of damage to your home. But in some cases, this is not an option. Our second choice is to dig a trench under the foundation so that we can access the pipe from outside your home. This takes more time and digging, but keeps all of the damage outside rather than inside your home. Our final option is to break up a section of the foundation to get to the pipes to make the repair. Obviously, there is a bit of mess associated with this method. But all of that can be repaired, and it does eliminate the potential for toxic mold growth and health issues.
At Turbo Plumbing and Rooter, our goal is always to work with each customer to find the best solution for his or her specific needs. Using the latest leak detection tools, we work very hard to minimize both the cost of the repairs and the damage to your home while still correcting the issue.
