Hidden leaks are a real problem that can do extensive damage to the structure of your home or building. It takes a blend of expert specialists and equipment to detect these damaging hidden leaks and repair them properly not only correcting the problem, but saving gallons of water lost by leakage.

While leaks are often found in older properties, newer properties can have slab leak problems as well. Poor construction or corrosion, and in many cases, movement in the structure can cause unexpected pipe damage at any time. If left undetected, the problem threatens property and makes repairs more costly.

WHAT IS A SLAB LEAK?

Slab leaks are either domestic water leaks or piping leaks in the sewer system found inside or beneath a concrete slab, which a home, business or industrial facility is built upon.

Slab leaks can be a major problem in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro area due in part to the content of clay in the Texas soils. Clay soils expand and contract based upon water in the soil. Extreme heat and no rain can cause the ground to contract or shrink. Large amounts of rain, or a water leak, can cause the ground to swell and the underground piping to crack or break.

Some of the causes of these damaging leaks, aside from the soil, can be older cast iron pipes, which can corrode or rust over time, causing leaks and expensive water bills. This is common in homes built prior to the mid 1970's. With newer construction built on concrete slabs, movement of the foundation can create a break in the slab causing pipes to break. Another issue can be tree roots that can penetrate and damage water and sewage pipes as well. Foundation repair or adjustments can cause damage to the pipes and seals between pipes. It is always beneficial for you to have your plumbing checked before and after any foundation repairs. These are some of the more common issues that can arise causing slab and substructure leaks.

HOW CAN A LEAK BE DETECTED

PERMA-PIER PLUMBING REPAIR OF TEXAS uses the most advanced electrical leak locating equipment available. This equipment allows us to locate leaks found within or beneath a concrete floor or slab. Electronic detection is used on slab leaks to avoid catastrophic property damage. Beware of companies that use "hunting" method for slab leak detection. This is done with jackhammers and similar demolition tools in locating leaks causing unnecessary destruction to a home or building. Slab leaks on residential water piping or heating system are easily repaired once the exact location is detected with master plumbing leak detectors saving money and time.
