A slab leak is the industry and insurance term for a leak in one of the water lines running below the concrete floor of your home. When these leaks are above the floor they are known as pinhole leaks.
In our opinion, based on inspecting 100’s of leaking lines, the leaks are primarily the result of a reaction between our drinking water and the copper pipes. We used to believe that leaks resulted from bad installation practices, non-reamed pipe, too much soldering flux, contact with concrete, rebar or rocks but that has proven to be a cause in a very low percentage of our inspections. Check out our slab leak information page for more.
We use our experience on how your system is installed along with electronic listing and tracing equipment to help us locate the problem. Visit the leak detection page for detailed outline of the location process.
We utilize all common industry fixes along with our single line epoxy repair system. After the leak is located and isolated we will talk with you about the different options for repairing your specific problem and the associated costs. Our goal is to help you make the best decision for your specific situation.
Please see our pricing page or give us a call to discuss, we are happy to answer general pricing question over the phone. Most of the time we can locate, isolate, repair the pipe and patch up any access holes for less than $1,500.00. In the industry in general this same service will range from just over $2,000.00 on up to $5,000.00 or more by the time the process is complete with patching and finishes restored.
