How Does A Slab Leak Occur?
Slab leaks are leaks that are found in your slab on grade foundations. This type of leak most often occurs beneath your floors and builds pressure. The advanced pressure makes slab leak repair and detection more complicated. They are equally hard to locate and to reach. However, Benjamin Franklin Slab Leak Detection Services Novato professionals have the experience needed to detect, assess, and repair your property’s slab leaks.
How Do You Detect a Slab Leak?
Our well-qualified plumbers of Benjamin Franklin Slab Leak Detection Services Novato work with advanced technologies that are designed specially to detect slab leaks. You, however, can also detect where a slab leak may be located before contacting us by following these steps:
- Find the pipe layout under the slab. Listen to the piping and notice changes in the pipes’ sounds.
- Search for warm or cold spots on your floors. Feel around carefully for spots that may be colder or hotter than the surrounding affected area. The temperature of the floor affected will be determined by the location of the slab leak, and whether the slab leak is located on a hot or cold water pipe.
- Turn off your property’s main water source.
- Jackhammer (if experienced and able) the slab at its point of leaking. Get as close in proximity as possible. If you are not able and experienced using a jackhammer, do not attempt this step. Instead, contact Benjamin Franklin Slab Leak Detection Novato.
