What Is A Slab Leak?
Getting plumbing lines into a home built on a slab is a little more challenging than some other types of homes. The pipes are run under the concrete foundation and then stubbed up into your house at the locations of the fixtures. And when one of these pipes begins to leak, it can be very hard to find the exact location of the issue known as a slab leak. But finding and fixing the leak is critical to the integrity of your home and the health of your loved ones.
Locating Slab Leaks
Modern-day slab leak technology involves the use of expensive equipment that amplifies the sound of running water. Using these tools, a Turbo Plumbing & Rooter technician will be able to actually hear where the water leak is located underneath the slab of your home. This is a far less destructive method of leak detection than the low tech plumbers use. They rely on a best guess and a sledgehammer to locate the leaks under your home.
Repairing A Slab Leak
There are several ways to repair a leak under your concrete foundation. The most favorable is to abandon the leaking pipe and re-route a new pipe through a crawlspace or attic. The new pipe is then run through the walls to get to the fixtures it needs to supply. But some homes do not have these spaces and make this process impossible. Our second choice is to tunnel under your foundation to access the leak from the outside. This does make a larger mess in your yard, but there is little or no mess inside your home. The final option is to dig through the foundation only at the location of the leak to make the repair. This is more expensive as we then need to repair your foundation.
