Slab Leak Detection

Slab Leaks can be located for cost efficient repairs.

Many homes and commercial buildings are constructed without a crawl space and these foundations are commonly referred to as “slab on grade” foundations. Beneath many of these slab on grade foundations are water pipes, drain pipes and sometimes power and other utilities.

Plumbing leaks beneath a slab foundation can present unique locating obstacles encountered by most leak detection professionals. Many include varied flooring materials to structure obstacles such as walls, fixtures, appliances or stairwells. Other unseen leak detection obstacles may include insulated or sleeved pipes, plastic liners installed beneath the slab, other utilities including drain or sewer pipes.

Slab Leak success factors:
