The Problem of the Slab Leak
A slab leak is a bit of technical talk for a leak in any pipe down in the concrete foundation of a home. A slab leak is difficult to notice at first because it’s buried out of sight. Unfortunately, a slab leak is a serious problem that can go undetected for years, wasting large amounts of water and putting pressure on the foundation of the house.
There are warning signs that will tell you it’s time to arrange for slab leak detection:
- Unusually high water bills: Slab leaks are one of the leading causes of water usage that seems much larger than it should be.
- Strange water heater behaviour: Around 80% of slab leaks occur in the hot water lines. The lost hot water will cause the water heater to turn on at times when there is no demand for hot water. If your water heater keeps running, you may have a slab leak.
- Cracks in the basement floor: The pressure from a pipe leak in the foundation can cause cracks to start appearing.
- Warm floors: The hot water escaping from a slab leak can cause the floors directly over the foundation to become warm.
Professional Slab Leak Detection
When you call us for slab leak detection, we’ll bring advanced equipment to pinpoint where the problem is. The tools include thermal scanners and various listening devices. We can also use video camera inspection tools to look at the pipes from the inside. When we’ve confirmed the location and extent of the leak, we can then determine the best way to handle the repairs. Sometimes, we can laterally fix the leak by creating a bypass. In other cases, we’ll have to do excavation with a jackhammer to get to the offending pipe.
