Olde Town Finds the Cause of Your Slab Leak
Even the most seasoned homeowner shudders at the diagnosis “Slab Leak.” And it’s not without reason. However, while slab leaks still have the potential to be quite costly, modern tools allow for less costly detection and repair of leaks within the slab. In addition, our plumbing experience helps us to pinpoint the leak more easily.
Slab leaks in Boerne, TX are not unusual. The hard water in the Texas Hill Country can erode plumbing lines causing pitting and eventually pinholes in the pipes.
If you suspect a slab leak, give us a call.
What are slab leaks?
Slab leaks develop when water lines in your slab become damaged and begin to leak. Damage can be a result of
- poor-quality materials or workmanship
- a deterioration from chemical reactions between the water lines and the soil or concrete
- wear and tear from vibrations in the line.
Regardless of the cause of the leaks, all slab leak repair should be completed as quickly as possible once you fine it.
When should you call a Boerne Plumber for Slab Leak Detection?
There are several common signs of slab leaks that all homeowners should be aware of. These signs include:
- Decreased water pressure
- Water pooling near the foundation of the home
- Water seeping through the floor
- Damp carpet and warped flooring
- Cracking or buckling of the foundation
- Spike in your water bill.
Types of Repairs for Leaks in the Foundation
Slab leak repair can come in a variety of forms. First, a section of pipe may need to be replaced by removing the pipe and inserting another one into the same location. Another possibility is that the pipes can be sealed with an epoxy restoration. And finally, the leaking pipe can be rerouted using a section of PEX tubing. If multiple leaks are present or leaks have occurred multiple times, you should consider a whole house re-pipe.
Many slab leak repairs can be accomplished by re-routing plumbing lines through cabinets or ceilings and walls in such a way that no cosmetic damage is done to the home. When repairs require our skilled professionals to open up the foundation to perform the repair, generally a small 4’x4’ opening is enough to complete the repair.
