Slab Leak Detection Services
Our slab leak detection tools are designed to expose the cause of the problem. Our experts take the time to carefully diagnose it before moving forward with any repair work, as slab leaks can be created from a number of factors, including:
- Acidic water
- Pipe friction against the concrete
- Low-quality installation jobs
Symptoms of slab leaks within homes and businesses are found to be wet spots on floors and mold growth, and if left unchecked, these symptoms have the capability of creating unsafe, dangerous living and working conditions. Slab leaks found beneath homes can be extremely problematic, capable of weakening the foundation of the infrastructure resting on it, and because of this, we are proud to offer slab leak detection and repair services that won’t upheave your property. We keep your property intact throughout the entirety of our process, ensuring that you can rest easy knowing that your property is in capable hands.
The Slab Leak Detection Process
Our equipment, the Gen Ear LE water leak location equipment exposes the slab leaks through sound. The microphone is highly sensitive and able to pick up the frequencies emitted from a leak located beneath the slab. This keeps our work minimally invasive by avoiding any premature excavation and ensuring that we accurately locate where the slab leak is before taking any steps to fix it. This is ideal for buildings in which the slab leak may be located beneath concrete flooring, ensuring that the floor remains unaffected.
Once the leak has been pinpointed and we have determined the cause, we will take non-intrusive measures to eliminate the leak. To effectively remove cracks and leaks in the slab without needing to completely remove it, we employ the repairs from inside of the pipe. This is done by inserting an epoxy resin formula directly into the pipe. This access point is one that we either create ourselves or establish through a nearby cleanout. With this connection established, the repairs can be conducted smoothly and without digging obtrusive trenches.
The resin we insert into the pipe coats the inside of the pipe, filling cracks and leaks with the mixture. Once the epoxy resin is evenly applied to the walls of the pipe and cured after several hours, the result is a new, smooth liner within the pipe. All cracks and leaks are sealed away, eliminating the slab leak and protecting it from future problems. We are also prepared for extreme cases in which the water may potentially need to be rerouted in order to promote efficient water flow and preserve the slab from any risks of further damage.
