Our licensed plumbers use a variety of specialized tools to perform a diagnostic on your plumbing system and determine if your problem is related to a slab leak. After gathering more information from you about what you’ve seen or experienced, we will get started with our inspection. Our professionals utilize ground microphones and acoustic discs to hear through the concrete slab to pinpoint the exact location of the leak. Your ABC plumber may confirm the presence of a slab leak by locating the water manifolds within your wall, isolating each water supply line and determining which line is leaking within your slab. Depending on your situation and circumstances, we may use one or a combination of these tools to inform our diagnosis.

Why and how do slab leaks occur?

Typically, slab leaks occur over time when copper pipes become corroded. The problem begins when pipes develop pinhole leaks which expand. In some cases, a slab leak can also develop if pipes are not installed correctly and they start to leak. Another reason you might have a slab leak is if the water in your area is particularly hard, which corrodes your pipes at a faster rate. If a slab leak is left unattended, the soil under your home can become saturated, leading to water damage, mold growth and even pest issues.

Can you repair my slab leak?

If we discover a slab leak during our inspection, we can present you with an estimate to make all needed plumbing repairs. If your foundation needs to be re-leveled, we can refer you to a reputable foundation repair company.

Why are slab leaks dangerous?

Slab leaks are a serious and potentially very costly problem, due to the damage your home and belongings can sustain, as well as the cost of repairs. Over time, this introduction of moisture and subsequent drying out causes your foundation to move. Since this settling is often uneven, your foundation can become damaged. Since these issues take place underground, your first signal of a slab leak may be cracks in your sheetrock or in your ceiling or your doors or windows not closing properly.

If these issues aren’t addressed, you may notice an increase in your water bill which just keeps getting more and more costly. As a slab leak gets bigger, excess water will pool up underneath and around your home which can lead to floor damage, mold growth and pest problems, such as termite infestations. In some cases, a home’s foundation buckles under this ongoing pressure.

If you suspect you have a slab leak, your best option will always be to contact a professional. The longer that you wait to get an inspection, the more damage can be done to your biggest investment.

“HVAC system replacement: from Robert, who gave me the quote and answered all my questions, to the team that came to the house to replace the system, they were very professional. I was kept up to date on the install and the men were very happy to show me what they were doing and explain the process and new equipment. They were efficient and finished in half a day. I could not believe how easy they made it look. So far, I’m loving the results as well.”
