Slab leak repair is the process of detecting and solving water leaks under the slab foundation of buildings. This is done with minimal damage to floors, walls, and foundations. Developments in plumbing technology make it possible to detect leaks and major pipe damage that point to slab leaks. A visit from one of our technicians to analyze the location of these leaks will help you get them under control.

What Causes Slab Leaks?
Slab leaks are brought about by cold weather, natural erosion, or shifting of the soil. New technology allows for more accurate leak detection. When cracks or small holes develop and water escapes outward, our technicians will be able to track the source of the damage and perform effective repairs.
What are Signs You Have a Slab Leak?
The sound of running water is the easiest way to tell if there is a leak. However, more subtle leaks can be just as costly and far more damaging; they are harder to detect and can be inflicting damage for weeks or months before you notice anything.
Our technicians use special tracking equipment to find these less visible leaks, often looking for signs of dampness in walls or feeling for extreme heat under the flooring.
Mildew is another major sign of water damage and should be addressed immediately. Most people discover a leak when utility bills are extreme. Uncontrolled water flow can become extremely costly. If your water meter shows movement once you have cut water flow, you have a leak.
Where are Slab Leaks Often Found?
Water can leak close to sewer lines, laundry areas, or restrooms. These lines can break any place inside your property, especially if they were installed poorly. Water may settle in a basement area or leak close to the building’s foundation.
Where Does the Plumbing Burst?
Pipes burst from extreme weather, while improper installation and faulty joints create problems as well. Changes in water filtration systems can also wear down your pipes. Over time, your pipes can simply wear out, forming thin spots and breaks in the water line.
