Slab Leak Repair and DetectionA slab leak in your Orange County home is often very difficult to detect. Common symptoms of a slab leak are high water bills, warm spots on the floor, or excess water near your foundation.
Tom Moffett Plumbing specializes in slab leak repair. Our expert plumbers have the experience to isolate the location of the slab leak and professionally repair it.
Slab leak repairs can be and to find and are the result of a number of different factors. One of the most common is soil that may cause a chemical reaction when coming into contact with the copper pipe causing it to breakdown. Another possible problem can happen during the construction process where a water pipe may not be wrapped properly causing wear between adjacent pipes soil, or pebbles. This wear, even though slight, over time can cause a hole to develop in the pipe. Finally, a water pipe that was properly installed during the plumbing phase of construction may require repair due to damage by other contractors such as drywallers. Regardless of the cause, Tom Moffett Plumbing's professional slab leak repair experts can diagnose the problem and give several options as to the best course of action.
There are many different ways of plumbing slab leak repair. The slab leak repair professionals at Tom Moffett Plumbing will determine the procedure that will be the most cost effective yet create a solution that will completely take care of the problem. Here are a few of the options that our pipe or slab leak repair plumbers may employ:
Jackhammer The Slab – This procedure opens up the slab where we can visually find the leak. This tends to be the most economical procedure as well as provides the opportunity to properly repair the leak.
Rerouting of Water Line – There are times when a leak occurs underneath expensive fixtures like bathtubs or showers, or under very expensive flooring where the cost of repair may be prohibitive. In this case, we would reroute the water pipes to take the broken water line out of the system. New water lines could be rerouted under the slab where the expensive fixtures or flooring is not located. In other cases, we will route the water lines into the walls or ceiling.
Tom Moffett Plumbing recommends highly that a slab leak be addressed and repaired immediately. Water leaks can be detrimental to the structural integrity of your home with the formation of mold as well as an excellent place for termites to nest. Plus, if a known slab leak is neglected, it is possible for some insurance companies to reject any claims for subsequent water damage.
