This tends to be because leaks often times start out small and grow larger over time. What was once a small pinhole leak can grow into a cracked pipe leaking hundreds of gallons of water a day! This is to say that, the longer a leak goes undetected the more damage it has time to do. From damaging wood flooring, to completely ruining drywall, plumbing leaks that are left unchecked can cause $1,000’s in damage to your home or business. As a homeowner it is important to know some of the common signs that a plumbing leak is present in your home.
Slab Leak Detection
Slab leaks are water leaks that occur under a homes concrete slab foundation. They are amongst the most difficult type of leaks to locate due their hidden nature and require specialized equipment to “pinpoint”. When a slab leak is located either via electronic listening equipment, or via line isolation tests, it can be repaired in a couple of different ways.
Repairing a Slab Leak
When it comes time to repair a slab leak a couple of options are usually presented to a homeowner. First, opening up the concrete slab to repair a damage section of line is always an option. However, it is seldom recommended as a damaged section of pipe is usually a good signt that the entire pipe is corroding or has become compromised. A second and more common option is what is referred to as a “re-route”. Just like the name implies a re-route is just that, a re-routing of water flow from the damaged pipe into a newly installed pipe. This is a both a less expensive and less intrusive method of slab leak repair. Instead of busting through your homes flooring, a pvc pipe can routed through your attic or crawl space to re-direct water flow. Re-routes are also much quicker to perform taking a few hours rather than several days.
