For several decades water lines have been distributed under concrete slabs without the protection of a plastic sleeve or insulative cover. Every time water is turned on or off the entire water line moves or shocks the system. If the water lines are buried adjacent to shells, rocks, or rebar or anything hard, this constant rubbing can wear a hole in the water line causing a leak.
“Slab Leaks” are very common in homes with concrete slabs, sidewalks, or driveways. Slab leaks can cost a lot of excess money over time and cause damage to structures by unbalancing the foundation and causing fractures throughout the structure. Most slab leaks can be detected with proper experience and utilizing the most advanced equipment available. While most plumbers can detect a slab leak, pinpoint location should be left to a true professional with the proper background and equipment. Not pinpointing leaks can lead to excessive damage to expensive flooring and guesswork that causes aggravation and concern on behalf of the homeowner and insurance company.
