Slab Leaks

Slab Leak Services in Ventura

Have you ever noticed a warm spot on the concrete floor? How about an outrageous water or gas utility bill? Chances are then that you have experienced a slab leak. Many structures have buried domestic hot and cold-water supply lines under the concrete floor. Usually when this happens it’s a wet carpet or flooring that alert you to a problem. Other times, as mentioned you may receive a higher than normal utility bill. And then there’s always the cat or dog that never naps on the floor suddenly has a favorite warm spot on the concrete. 

Whatever the triggers we can accurately pin down the exact location of the leak. Just because the water appears to be rising out of the floor in one spot doe’s does not guarantee that’s where the leak is. Water will obviously migrate to the lowest point and surface.

What Is a Slab Leak?

A slab leak refers to a water leak that occurs beneath the concrete foundation of a building. This often happens due to corrosion or damage to the pipes embedded within the slab. Detecting slab leaks requires specialized equipment as they can go unnoticed for a long time, leading to structural damage if left untreated.

How Can I Detect a Slab Leak?

Detecting a slab leak, which is a leak in the water pipes beneath the concrete foundation of a building, is important to prevent damage to the foundation and potential water damage inside the structure. Here are some common methods to detect a slab leak:

  • Monitoring water bills for unexplained increases.
  • Checking the water meter when all sources are turned off.
  • Looking for visible signs of water damage or leakage.
  • Noting warm spots on floors for potential hot water leaks.
  • Observing sudden foundation movement or sinking.
  • Listening for sounds of running water when taps are off.
  • Hiring professionals to use specialized equipment like electronic listening devices and thermal imaging cameras.
  • Conducting pressure tests on the plumbing system.
  • Utilizing camera inspection for interior pipe examination.

For accurate detection, it's advisable to contact a licensed plumber or leak detection specialist.
