How do you find a water leak in a slab?

Of all the water leaks, slab leaks are usually the most serious. They can occur suddenly and cost you hundreds of dollars in repairs. Luckily, the team at Leak Science has years of experience finding and repairing slab leaks.

So, what does a slab water leak look like? And how can you tell if you have one? Here are some signs to look out for:
  • You may have a slab leak if your water bill is significantly higher than usual and/or your water use is much greater than planned.
  • Listen for water flowing in your walls or foundation.
  • You may have a slab leak if fill soil has washed out from below your house.

Slab leaks frequently start off undetectable to the naked eye and progressively worsen over a period of days or weeks. In just a few days, a slab leak can cause serious water and mold damage to your house. By forcing the fill soil out from below your home’s foundation, slab leaks might jeopardize it.

Leak Science provides non-invasive leak detection services using the most up-to-date technology in thermal imaging cameras, acoustic, and line tracing equipment. This device helps us to find the water leak without having to dismantle building components, reducing the risk of future property damage.

What is a slab leak?

Slab leaks are sometimes known as foundation leaks, and they are one of the most prevalent plumbing leaks in Scottsdale. These leaks often start off small, like a pinhole, and can go undetected for weeks. Scottsdale is a hotspot for slab leaks due to a number of causes. First, lime rock beneath the topsoil in Scottsdale is infamous for leaving deposits in our water supply. The presence of lime rock deposits in the water supply causes what we call hard water.

If you check the faucets and showerheads in your home, you’ll sometimes notice a white film surrounding the metal head. These are lime rock deposits, which are harsh on copper pipes used for plumbing and cause leaks to grow over time. Slab leaks are difficult to identify and need specialized equipment and training. As a result of the responsibility and price of the specialized equipment, most plumbing firms do not provide slab leak detection. Cutting holes in every wall that may have plumbing in the building is a common plumbing company’s notion of slab leak detection. When plumbing companies attempt to identify slab leaks in this manner, insurance companies frequently refuse to pay for the damage caused.

To correctly find a slab leak, you’ll need the right tools and skills to listen for it. This provides for more accuracy and reduces the risk of leak detection attempts being sabotaged. A reputable leak detection company should be able to discover the leak within 60 minutes and be within 12 inches of the leak, allowing for the least amount of destruction and damage to the building components. Because plumbing pipes beneath your foundation or slab might be difficult to reach, expert technicians with experience are required.

Preventing a Scottsdale Slab Leak

Early discovery of a water leak will save you money and avoid serious structural damage. As you may be aware, a water leak from any location in your house may easily damage your walls, floors, and baseboards. However, tracking out the source might take days, if not weeks. Leaks usually follow a course behind walls, which makes them difficult to find at first. The best choice if you suspect a water leak in your house is to contact a professional plumbing firm such as Leak Science.
  • Examine Your Water Meter. The simplest way to discover whether you have a water leak in your house is to check the water meter. To do so, first, turn off all of the water in your house. Turn off any faucets that are running, and make sure the dishwasher and washing machine are turned off as well. Then keep an eye on the meter and take note of any changes. If it does, you’ve got a fast-moving leak somewhere on the interior. Wait a few hours and check again if the meter does not change. It’s possible that you have a slow-moving leak.
  • Look for Water Damage Signs. Have you noticed any stains on your ceiling or walls? What about damage to the flooring? It’s essential to contact a plumber for leak detection services if you’ve detected any evidence of water damage. They can locate the source of a leak and repair it before it causes significant harm.
  • Inspect Your Home Regularly. As a homeowner, you should check beneath sinks and behind cabinets for symptoms of mildew or strange odors that signal a leak in your home. You might save thousands of dollars by paying attention to your surroundings. Consider hiring an expert plumber to do an annual examination.

Our Process for Scottsdale Water Leak Detection and Repair

Our procedure is much easy than it appears. To assess the symptoms, we first consult with the homeowner or trade professional in detail. Following that, we check the pool and dye test every entrance and fracture that may be a leak source.

Then we pressurize each subterranean pipe to detect whether there is any pressure loss. We next use very sensitive acoustic testing tools to detect the leak, followed by our leak verification method. Finally, an “X” designates the location of the leak.

From there, we get right to work repairing the leak. Sometimes, this involves us removing some of the surrounding flagstone of your pool. But don’t worry—Leak Science is the only leak repair company that will completely repair the pool deck if we have to dig into it.

There’s No Need to Hire a Contractor to Repair Your Pool Deck! 

Other leak detection firms often locate and repair a swimming pool leak, but they must employ an outside contractor to return your pool to its previous state. This results in more outsiders entering and exiting your house, as well as increased expenditures.

There’s no need for different teams or lengthier repair timeframes! Leak Science is the only firm that can legally locate and fix leaks.
