Slab Leak Detection and Repair

Slab LeaksChances are, if you experiencing any of the following, you have a slab leak:

  • The sound of running water when all water is switched off
  • A hot patch on the floor which could indicate a hot water line leak
  • Cracks in walls or flooring
  • Mildew or excessive moisture under carpets which could indicate your slab is cracked
  • High water bills could indicate a water leak behind the wall or in your pool, plumbing under the slab is also suspect.

How to Detect a Slab Leak

Before you break into a slab or pool deck, you must ensure you know exactly where the leak location is. If you are unsure, you must use professional as finding a slab leak requires a thorough process with technical expertise. It’s not enough to simply ‘search’ for it. It must be accurately detected.

In order to detect leaks in a non-destructive manner requires the use of modern tools. These tools include electronic amplification equipment and electromagnetic pipeline locators – which usually only professionals as Dutton Plumbing have access to.

Repairing Slab Leaks

Once the leak has been found underneath the slab, our Dutton Plumbing leak specialists will provide a repair option. When it comes to repairing a slab leak, the following can be done:

  • A spot repair involves opening up the slab at the spot of the leak and repairing the leaking pipe. This option is usually the most cost effective for newer constructions.
  • Re-piping or re-routing means replacing the entire line that has the leak. This is most effective for older plumbing systems that have a history of leaking.
  • Epoxy pipe coating is applied through the inside of plumbing. This is mostly conducted on a system that has a series of small leaks rendering the normal repair costly.
