Call BW/Cook Service Experts for Experienced Slab Leak Repair in Elkhart

Do you have a slab leak in your home? A slab leak is one of the most difficult plumbing problems to detect and remedy. This kind of seepage can be a nightmare for homeowners. Luckily, the industry leaders at BW/Cook Service Experts can save you from the headache and worry.

What Is A Slab Leak?

A slab leak occurs when a pipe ruptures underneath the concrete foundation of your home, driveway or pool deck. This type of leak is difficult to repair because in order for the damage to be reached, it requires that a professional break through the concrete slab to reach the pipe.

Symptoms

When you have a leak that’s hidden deep beneath solid stone at your residence, it can be hard to find. So how do you know when there’s a slab leak? Check your home for the following signs of a slab leak:

  • High water bills: If you are experiencing higher water bills, without increasing your usage, it’s much more likely there’s a leak somewhere. While the damage may also have occurred inside a wall, it is important that you have a professional immediately perform an assessment.
  • Dripping or splashing sounds: Do you hear running or dripping water in your home, when all water sources are turned off?
  • Cracks in walls or flooring: A leak beneath a concrete slab will slowly wash away the earth that supports the foundation of your Clearwater, St. Petersburg or Tampa home. Without this support, the building’s weight can cause it to sag, potentially damaging the walls or floor.
  • Mildew underneath the carpet: Leaks often seep up through the concrete floor, encouraging mold growth.
  • Hot spot: A possible indication of a hot water leak beneath your residence is a hot spot on the floor of your house.

An easy way to confirm if water is escaping into or below your home is by running a water meter test. You’ll turn off every faucet and ensure there are no appliances using water, then you can go outside and check the meter. If the needle is still moving, there’s almost certainly a leak, and you’ll want to reach out to local Expert plumbers.

Repair Options for a Slab Leak

After we have located the source of the leak, there are several repair options we might use. Their effectiveness will vary by property and the severity of the damage:

  1. With newer construction, it is often as simple as your plumber opening up the concrete directly above the damage and fixing the pipe.
  2. Sometimes with old systems, or a system with consistent problems, it’s probably best to repipe the entire affected line rather than fixing a single damaged pipe.
  3. If there are multiple leaks throughout the water line, it is sometimes possible for us to apply an epoxy coating to the inside of the pipe to seal the damaged areas, rather than breaking multiple holes in the floor for direct.

By keeping our prices at a flat rate, there are no hidden costs, and any additional expenses will be discussed with you so there are never any surprises. We also offer one-hour emergency service during normal business hours when scheduling permits.
