Address Slab Leaks Right Away

Slab leak repair in Surprise, AZ, is important since these can damage your property when unaddressed for a long period, contribute to issue with mold and mildew, or affect the stability of your foundation. This is why it is best to contact us even if you only suspect a slab leak. Leak detection is the first step with slab leak repair. Our experienced technicians do this with minimally invasive methods. This process typically involves specialized equipment. Camera inspections may be advisable as well if there's an access point available. Once we confirm and locate the leak, we'll recommend an appropriate repair method.

Common Causes and Locations

Many slab leaks occur below sinks, showers, or toilets, which often allows for relatively easy access. Nonetheless, it's also possible for leaks to occur in areas where the slab may have moved or settled.

Among the main causes of leaks are:

  • Improper pipe installation
  • Water pressure that's too high
  • Mineral-heavy water that contributes to corrosion and wear
  • Damage from abrasion or friction caused by the slab itself or surrounding materials or expansion and contraction from temperature changes
  • Age-related damage, especially with older copper or galvanized steel pipes

Look Out for These Signs

Slab leaks can be difficult to detect since the affected pipes are underground. Still, there are signs that suggest something out of the ordinary is going on below a concrete slab. An unexplained dip in water pressure, for instance, is one of the telltale signs of a slab leak. Other signs to look for include:

  • Hot spots on the floor
  • Water coming out from the ground or slab
  • Stoppages or clogs affecting multiple drains
  • Foundation cracking
  • Sounds of water running
  • Increased water bills

What to Expect During Slab Leak Repair

Our recommendation will depend on the location of the leak and the solution that fits your needs and budget. Once we have located the leak, here are a few things you should know about our leak repair services:

  • Digging to access and replace the pipe
  • Re-routing the pipe to an above-ground location if there's a preference to avoid digging
  • Using trenchless repair methods if it's possible to do so
  • Tunneling beneath the slab
