The Importance of Slab Leak Detection

A slab leak occurs when there's a leak in the water lines beneath your home's concrete foundation. These leaks can be caused by a variety of factors, such as shifting soil, corrosion, or poor installation. 

Detecting slab leaks early is crucial because they can lead to significant damage over time, including:

  • Foundation Damage. As water accumulates under the foundation, it can weaken the structure, leading to cracks, shifts, and other foundation issues.
  • Mold and Mildew. The moisture from a slab leak creates a conducive environment for mold and mildew growth, posing health risks to your household.
  • Higher Water Bills. Undetected slab leaks result in water wastage, leading to unexpectedly high water bills.

How Are Slab Leaks Fixed?

Although Slab leaks are a common plumbing issue, they can lead to substantial damage if left unattended. Addressing them at once is essential to prevent structural issues, mold growth, and water waste. But how exactly are slab leaks fixed? 

  • Spot Repair for Minor Leaks. Spot repair can be an appropriate solution for smaller leaks that haven't caused significant damage. This involves accessing the affected area through the foundation and repairing the leak without disturbing the entire slab.
  • Re-piping for Extensive Damage. In cases where the damage is more extensive and widespread, re-piping might be the best option. This involves replacing the damaged section of the pipe with new material. 
  • Pipe Relining for Minimal Disruption. This method involves inserting a new liner into the existing pipe, sealing the leak, and preventing further damage.
