Slab Leak Repairs in Redlands and Loma Linda

Any time you have a water leak underneath a concrete slab, you have a potentially messy, disruptive, and pricey plumbing repair on your hands, indoors or outdoors.

But, just like with most other plumbing repairs, early detection is key to minimizing the damage and resulting repair work.  Here’s what to look and listen for to determine whether or not you may potentially have a slab leak on your hands:niceness

  • Listen for the sound of running water beneath a concrete surface, especially when all household water sources are turned off.  If that’s the case, and you hear the sound of running water from down below, chances are you have a leak.
  • Keep a watchful eye out for cracks in concrete flooring or sidewalks that may have plumbing or drainage pipes running beneath them.
  • If you hear or see any indication of a potential slab leak, get down on your hands and knees and feel around.  What you’re feeling for are soft or wet spots to confirm your suspicions.

 

Even if you suspect a possible slab leak, we urge you to contact Plumbtastic much sooner than later.  With our sophisticated electronic leak detectors, we can determine not just if you have a leak, but where it is and just how serious the problem might be.

That, in turn leads to a less invasive repair process that can save you hundreds of dollars by eliminating “hunt and peck” type digging expeditions that may or may not get to the exact location without any wasted digging.

We also have multiple repair solutions, where we’ll recommend exactly the right one for your particular situation.  These include:

  • Repair the leaking pipe
  • Replace the leaking pipe
  • Reroute or re-locate the under-slab water pipes to prevent similar problems down the road
