Slab Leak Repair & Detection Service in Orange County

Not all plumbing leaks can be seen with the naked eye. Sneaky leaks can pop up anywhere, including your concrete slab foundation – one of the most serious problems you can encounter as a homeowner. If you own a home, it is very important to know both what causes slab leaks and how to identify one.

What Causes a Slab Leak?

There are many possible factors that could account for a slab leak; more often than not, it is the result of damage that occurs during and or after the pipe installation. It is common for some materials to get a little banged up while building a house, but if the pipes experience any damage, it could cause plumbing problems in the long run. Other factors that play a role in causing slab leaks in Orange County are ground/foundation shifts, abrasion, and or the corrosion of your pipes.

When a leak occurs under a bathtub or shower, or under expensive flooring, the cost of the repair may be too much for a homeowner. In a case like this, we recommend capping off the existing underground pipes and rerouting the water pipes through the walls or attic using durable and flexible PEX piping. If more than one water line is damaged, a complete pipe replacement may be required.

How do you know if it’s a slab leak without seeing it?
