Home » Plumbing » Water Leak Detection » Slab Leak Detection and Repair
You may or may not know this, but your home rests on a concrete foundation called a slab. This slab exists to support your home, providing stability and preventing it from shifting with the soil over the years. The slab is very useful, even vital, for the health of your home. One problem that it can make worse, though, is plumbing leaks.
If you need slab leak detection and repair services, Environment Masters, Inc. can take care of you. We offer full slab leak detection and repair services throughout Jackson, MS. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our expert plumbers. Trusted. Since 1957.
What Makes Slab Leaks Different from Other Plumbing Leaks
Two different lines run under the slab in your house: the water line and the sewer line. If either of these lines develops a leak under your slab, it can become a serious problem. Any plumbing leak is a problem, of course, but slab leaks are especially nasty. There are two reasons for this. First, both the water and the sewer lines are an important part of your home’s plumbing system. Leaks in those lines will potentially cause widespread negative effects for the rest of the plumbing.
The second problem is that the slab leaks are very difficult to get to. Because the leak is located under the thick concrete that forms the foundation of your home, repairing it will not be easy. That is, unless you have a professional working on it.
We Can Handle Your Slab Leaks
If you suspect that you have a slab leak in your home, it is vital that you call for detection services as quickly as possible. Because of the location of slab leaks, proper detection methods are a bit different than with other plumbing leaks. The usual method is to use highly sensitive listening equipment to actually hear the leak under the slab. This is a surprisingly accurate way to pinpoint the location of the leak, and to begin formulating a repair plan.
Our Slab Leak Detection and Repair Equipment
With the advance of technology over the years, slab leak repair services have improved considerably. You still need specialized professional training and equipment to properly detect and repair a slab leak, of course. However, there is no longer a need to actually drill through the slab or crack it open to reach the damaged pipe. In previous decades, that was the only way to do it, which meant actually damaging the slab. That was obviously less than ideal. Now, we can properly repair any slab leak, restoring the pipe to full operating condition without compromising the surrounding area.
Regardless of your slab leak detection or repair needs, Environment Masters, Inc. is here to make sure everything goes smoothly. Our professional plumbers each have many years of experience, and will ensure that your plumbing system is in top condition by the time they’re through.
