Slab Leak Detection and Repairs

Slab Leak Detection What is a Slab Leak?

A slab leak is a term used in the plumbing industry referring to a water leak coming from a water line under a concrete floor of a structure. Residential homes or commercial buildings built on concrete slabs or pads typically have water supply lines running under them to deliver water to the inside of the structure. If you find yourself with a concrete slab or pad, then you may be concerned about a slab water leak.

Water leaks under concrete slabs can occur in any type of water line, copper, galvanized metal, or plastic (CPVC or PEX). Many factors can contribute to a slab leak.

Slab Leak Detection

Many companies advertising slab leak detection services cut holes in walls to find water lines and use a “process of elimination” method to find the leaking water line. Their solution is to re-route the leaking water line and bypass the slab leak and solve the issue. This process is outdated and takes hours to perform. Just to find out what water line is leaking can cost you hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars before the leak is even repaired!

Leaking Pipe Under Concrete SlabIs a Slab Leak Covered by Insurance?

This is a common question that can only be answered by your insurance company. Under certain circumstances insurance will pay for slab repairs but not pipe repairs. The answer often depends on the source of the damage. If the slab was damaged by an event or something that your home insurance policy covers, then the answer will be yes. But in cases of natural wear, such as a shifting foundation, the homeowner’s insurance policy will not cover it. Please consult with your insurance company to find out if your slab leak can be covered under your policy.
