How to Know if You Have a Slab Leak
Inland Empire experts in treating slab leaks throughout Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange and Los Angeles counties. Call us 24/7 for emergency slab leak repairs at (800) 863-1979.
Water leaks in the concrete slabs of foundations, patios and pools can create extensive damage when they go undetected or they are left unrepaired. Without the right equipment and knowledge, these below-ground leaks are often difficult to find and expensive to repair. With our state-of-the-art equipment, many times we are able to fix the problem without digging up your yard or destroying your concrete to fix the hidden damaged piping.
Common Warning Signs of a Slab Leak
Despite being difficult to detect, there are actually several warning signs of slab leaks if you know what to watch out for. Contact The Original Plumbing Company immediately if you notice:
• Cracks appearing in your concrete floors or walls.
• A mildew smell under your carpets.
• Unexplainable, recurring wet spots on the carpet or in the yard.
• A rapidly rising water bill.
• The sound of rushing water when faucets are turned off.
• Water draining into your home from a concrete foundation, patio or driveway.
Painless Slab Leak Detection and Repair
Upon arrival, our plumbing specialists will perform a meter test to determine the potential size of the problem. This requires shutting off all water to your home for 30 minutes to determine if the water meter registers a change.
We use video inspection technology to confirm that there are leaks in slabs and pool decks before trying to remedy the situation. This non-invasive solution allows us to efficiently pinpoint the problem and cost-effectively make the repair. In many cases, we can perform a spot repair by opening up the slab at the spot of the leak. Older plumbing systems may require completely rerouting or repiping the entire system. When replacement is needed, we can offer another cost-efficient solution with our trenchless epoxy pipe repair services, reducing the time required to fix the problem to less than two days rather than weeks.
We have extensive experience working with homeowner insurance policies over the past 30 years. In many instances, the expense of hiring The Original Plumbing Company to detect a slab leak and repair it is covered.
