What Is a Slab Leak?
The slab in this context refers to the foundation of your home. Homes either have a basement, a crawl space or are built on a concrete slab. In homes that are built on a concrete slab, there are plumbing and piping systems that either run underneath or are encased in the slab foundation. Though rare, these pipelines can become old, brittle, or compromised and begin to leak and damage the flooring in your home. If they do, you can be looking at serious foundation damage, as well as a variety of plumbing complications. This makes identifying and repairing slab leaks in as little time as possible a priority.
How the repair is handled differs depending on where the pipes are located, the type of piping in question, and the complexity of replacing or repairing the line. In many cases a simple pipe repair and replacement will get the job done—in more complex situations a plumber may need to run an alternative line, often done using PEX, which will safely reroute the water line away from the slab or go down through the flooring, into the slab concrete and make a repair.
With the equipment and training we have at Three Way Plumbing, we will pinpoint within 2 feet the area where the leak is under the floor and concrete slab. This prevents you from having to tear up all your floors and breaking up the concrete to determine where the leak is originating. This is helpful because water travels and although you may have a wet spot coming up through your floor, the leak may not be originating from that exact spot.
