What Do you Need To Know About Slab Leaks?
A slab leak is a water leak below a concrete foundation under a home or property from either a cold or hot water line. These leaks can be a small pinhole leak, or a break producing large or small amounts of water.
There are many reasons why you might have a slab leak. These include, but are not limited to, improper soldering, corrosion, copper that is improperly wrapped, wear and tear, bad water quality, or concrete eating through the pipe.
Water seeping through the floor is typically the first sign of a slab leak. If it’s a hot water line that is leaking the flooring may feel warm or even hot. Other indicators include hardwood floor showing signs of buckling, walls will show signs of moisture, water heater is running way more than usual or inexplicably high water bills. Also check your water meter and see if it’s still spinning even if you have turned off everything in the house (such as toilets, faucets, etc.).
Hire a professional leak detection company or plumber who has the right equipment such as listening devices, thermal imaging camera, air tanks, moisture readers, location devices.
Slab leaks can be repaired in several ways, a direct access repair where the concrete will be opened up to access the pipe leak, usually the hole is 4′ by 4 ‘. A section is cut and a new one installed.
Other is a reroute, where the underground line is all together deleted and a new line ran above ground. The last option is epoxy restoration, depending on the size of the leak epoxy can be installed and cured in place covering the leak.
A slab repair typically takes about two days to complete on the plumbing side, it could take a few days more depending on the finishes, such as flooring, patching, painting, etc.
