Slab leaks can go unnoticed for weeks.
Some early signs are
- very little hot water
- a water heater that is continuously firing
- a hot spot on your floor
- low water pressure throughout the house
After a slab leak location we must go through your flooring and concrete slab. This hole is ideally a couple of feet wide. After concrete and rebar are removed we dig down and find the source of the leak. After the repair, it is pressure tested and backfilled. Concrete is replaced to slab level.
The technician will work his way around your property listening for signs of a water leak. The water leak detection process can take a few hours to a day to complete.
Once the leak is pinpointed we can quote you for the repair. Some times we will decide to go down through your slab and attempt to repair the line under ground. Other times we do a water line re-route by finding the leaking water line at the manifold, running it up the wall, into the roof space and to the fixture or fixtures it serves.
Talk with your technician and we can weigh the pro’s and con’s.
