What is a slab leak? A slab leak is an underground water line that has developed a crack or pin hole leak within the pipe. Slab Leak Detection is the process by with which we find the leak.

We utilize the most advanced "leak detection devices" the industry has to offer. Our slab leak detection specialists have been trained in the most up to date leak detection methods.

 

Interior Water Leaks

We specialize in water leak detection. Our leak detection experts will precisely locate your leak and provide you with all of your repair options. Leaks through the ceiling, leaks through the interior wall, or a leak though the flooring are no match for our leak detection experts

 

Cold Water Slab Leaks

Cold water slab leaks account for around 30% of all slab leaks. It is more common to have a hot water slab leak opposed to a cold water slab leak. Cold water slab leaks tend to be a bit more difficult to find and require a slab leak specialist.

 

Hot Water Slab Leaks

Hot water slab leaks are most common accounting for around 70% of all the slab leaks we encounter. Hot water slab leaks are easier to find. Often we can find your hot water slab leak without the use of any leak detection equipment. When a hot water pipe bursts underground: the hot water itself will radiate up through the floor indicating the whereabouts of the leak. The leak itself still needs to be confirmed to ensure a precise location as sometimes pipes are wrapped or sleeved and this can send the hot water off into a location far from the actual leak.

 

Why are hot water slab leaks more common? The expansion and contraction created during the delivery of hot water causes more pipe movement. Pipe movement causes abrasions, and weakens the pipe at a higher rate.

 

Hot Water Slab Leaks on hot water circulation lines

We tend to see a high rate of slab leaks on the hot water return lines that serve hot water circulation systems. Leaks on hot water circulation systems are directly caused by the continious 24 hour revolution of hot water within the hot side system. We highly recommend that you have your hot water circulation system calibrated for optimum use, and pipe preservation. This requires a circulation pump that comes equipped with either a build in programmable timer or aquastat sensor that is set up to minimize the use of the pump.

What causes slab leaks? Most often a slab leak caused by improperly installed piping

What other causes are behind slab leaks?

  • High water pressure can contribute to slab leaks by way of the undue stress "excessive" pressure placed on the water system
  • Thermal Expansion causes many of slab leaks. Slab leaks tend to more often be on the hot water system side caused by the expansion/contraction of the pipes during the heating of water.
  • Hard water and elevated ph levels also contribute to slab leaks. If you have experienced one or more slab leaks installing a water conditioning system may be your cure.
  • Hot soil or contaminated soil can lead to pipe failure.

 

What are the warning signs of an underground slab leak? Slab Leak Symptoms

 

  • High water bills
  • High gas bills
  • Warm floors
  • Musty/Mildew smells
  • Warped wood floors or baseboards
  • The constant sound of running water even with no water fixtures in use
  • The water heater is constantly in heating mode

 

How can I determine if I have a leak?

 

  • The simplest way is to mark and record your water meter and allow for 30 minutes or so to pass. If the dial moves and the reading increases YOU HAVE A LEAK
  • Another way to verify a leak exists is by way of shutting off your water and allowing a few minutes to pass. If the water system charges back up when you turn the system back on CHANCES are you have a leak.

 

Are slab leaks and the resulting water damage covered under my Homeowner Insurance?

 

It is always best that you refer to your particular insurance policy and written coverage. However, the majority of insurance companies will not cover plumbing. They will cover the resulting water damage on the premise that the leak is a result of a sudden burst or break.

 

Some insurance carriers will cover the cost associated with locating, accessing and the put back of concrete involved in repairing the actual leak (they won't cover the cost associated with the actual pipe repair).

 

What is best? A direct repair of the slab leak via the concrete removal and repair, or an above ground pipe re-route?

 

It is always best to re-route or repipe the water system. If you have had one leak the chances of another leak occurring is high. By eliminating the underground piping you greatly reduce the chances of another flood to your home.

 

How can I protect my home from having a slab leak or plumbing problems in general?

 

  • Always maintain your water pressure below 70 psi. A water pressure regulator will ensure that the pressure remains at or below 70 psi. However, pressure regulators due fail as well, as such, you should check or have your water pressure checked at least once a year.
  • Have your water supply tested for high levels of hardness. If you live in an area with hard water you ought to consider the installation of a water conditioning system. Along with protecting your piping system "water conditioners" protect your complete plumbing system including faucets, fixtures, dishwashers, shower doors, and more...
  • One of the most understood causes behind slab leaks is thermal expansion. Thermal Expansion occurs during the heating cycle of the tank type water heater. As the water heats "it expands" just like a tea kettle builds steam as its cooked: the water in your water heater does the same. The pressure builds up and places undue stress on your water system. The frequent expansion and contraction created during the heating cycle can lead to pipe movement and "ultimately" leaks. Installing a thermal expansion tank or some form of protective device - will eliminate this very misunderstood problem.

In Southern California and throughout the US - slab leaks are one of the most common plumbing problems. A slab leak by definition is when water pipes inside or underneath the concrete structure of a house (also known as a "slab") start leaking. A slab leak occurs when water pipes underneath a house crack or break. A slab leak starts to cause serious damage to a home when it goes unattended without being fixed or replaced with new pipes. One of the worse things that can happen is when a slab leak starts to cause damage to the structure of a home, through cracked flooring and walls. Considering how badly slab leaks can damage a home they must be first detected and then repaired immediately.

 

Slab Leak Symptoms!

 

Sound of Running Water
One of the most common symptoms of a slab leak is typically the sound of running water throughout an area of your home, or the entire home when no faucets are on. If this is something you are experiencing, calling us can save you thousands of dollars. We specialize in Slab Leak Detection and can locate the slab leak in your home the same day we are called.

 

Cracks in Floors and Walls
If you notice any cracks in the floors and or walls of your home or business it could be the result of a slab leak. Usually cracks in floors and walls take time to develop but they can also occur very rapidly, if you have a crack in the flooring or along the walls of your home that is getting bigger over time or has just appeared consult us immediately, as this could be the sign of a very serious slab leak.

 

Wet Flooring and Mildew
If you are experiencing Mildew or wet carpets and flooring it is likely that your slab is cracked and therefore the pipes within it are leaking into your home.

 

Increase in Water Bill
Often times a sudden increase in your monthly water bills can be an indicator of a slab leak. Especially when your water consumption level has not increased above normal levels. A high water bill can also indicate several other types of leaks such as pool and plumbing leaks.

 

Increase in Gas Bill

Often times a sudden increase in your monthly gas bill can be an indicator of a slab  leak. Especially, when in conjunction with "hot spots" throughout the floor occur. If you feel warmth on the floor - that is a clear sign of an underground leak.
