What Causes Slab Leaks?

First of all, the "slab" in your home is the large, concrete block upon which your entire house sits. For many years, the main water line coming into your home was buried inside of this slab to protect it. However, there is one main problem with this method of water line installation: if the water line starts to leak it will cause huge damage to the slab. So how do these leaks start?

Your main water line is likely made out of copper, which is used because it resists rust and corrosion but is also very soft. If there are any dents in the copper pipe then the tens of thousands of gallons of water rushing over that dent can wear it down and cause a pinhole leak. Also, if your concrete slab shifts at all over the years it could cause extra pressure on the pipe and cause it to crack and leak.

Signs You Have a Slab Leak

Your water line is inside your slab which makes detecting leaks difficult. But there are some things that the astute homeowner can look and listen for which might indicate that you have a problem. Call the Los Angeles, CA slab leak repair professionals at My Drain Company Inc if you’re having any of the below issues.

Warm spots
If you notice warm spots on your slab it could mean that you have a leak.
Running water
If all of your appliances and fixtures are turned off but you still hear the sound of running water, it could mean that you have a leak somewhere—possibly in your slab.
Keep an eye out for cracks in your slab or foundation which could mean that the water leak is weakening the concrete.
Water bill
If your water bill goes up for no reason it might mean that you have a leak somewhere in your home or underground.

Slab Leak Repair Service in Los Angeles, CA

There are a couple different options to repair your slab leak. Call the slab leak repair professionals at My Drain Company Inc., and we can talk with you about which type of repair process is right for your home.

Probably the most common repair method is to use our specialized equipment to locate the leak and then jackhammer out a section of your slab. Our plumbers will replace the leaking section of your water pipe and then fill in the hole with new concrete.

Another method is to completely re–route your water line outside of the slab. We’ll cut the water line where it enters the slab and route it elsewhere through your home. This way, if you have any future issues with your water line, it won’t harm your slab.

Call My Drain Company Inc. for slab leak repair service in Los Angeles, CA. We guarantee that we’ll get to your home the same day that you call because we know how frustrating it is to have to wait for a plumber.
