Irvine Slab Leak Detection Services

What Is a Slab Leak?

At Sage Plumbers, we know a slab leak is most commonly a leak in a pressurized water line beneath a home or building’s foundation. A slab leak becomes noticeable when water begins emerging from the structure’s foundation—most commonly where pipes penetrate the slab. Sometimes a slab leak can occur for an extended period without your knowledge. A slab leak can also happen due to a broken drain line under the slab. Since these leaks can quickly become expensive, taking swift action can prevent significant damage.

A small slab leak can result in massive loss of property. The Irvine plumbers at Sage Plumbers have the tools to identify a slab leak and provide efficient repair. Call (949) 536-7471 for more information.

Common Causes of Slab Leaks

Most slab leaks are caused when copper water lines under the slab develop a pinhole leak that gets progressively worse. Property owners typically realize that something is amiss when they receive higher utility bills with similar water usage. Additional signs of a slab leak include water seeping through the floors, moisture on the walls, and hardwood floor buckling.

Contributing factors to a slab leak include:

  • The age of the pipes
  • The hard mineral content of your water
  • Chemicals used to purify and treat our water to make it safe to drink
  • The thickness of the copper used by the builder
  • The level of impurities present in the copper pipes.
  • The settling of the structure over time causes tension or pressure on the pipes
