The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports, household plumbing leaks are responsible for wasting almost 10,000 gallons of water each year.
Concrete slab or foundation leaks have become a growing problem and can be difficult to accurately detect without the proper equipment.
There Are Many Reasons Why A Slab Or Foundation Leak Can Occur
Older water pipes are susceptible to rust and corrosion. Corrosion occurs when acids found in water produce pits in the pipes, which eventually turn into pinhole size leaks.
The summer heat can cause the soil to shift, putting a strain on the plumbing system, resulting in leaks.
Copper pipes react with chemicals in the water, which cause pinhole leaks.
The water supply going into your home is pressurized and over time can make the pipes vulnerable to leaks.
Poor or inadequate construction plays a big role with water leaks. Instead of copper, some newer construction have pex lines which are left exposed to rodents,who can chew small holes in them.
If left untreated slab leaks can compromise the integrity of the foundation and eventually your home, not to mention the health issues from mold.
Detecting water leaks can be difficult without a trained specialist and equipment. Traditional methods of locating leaking pipes often meant digging up floors, cutting into walls, and creating an expensive mess. Today’s advances in technology brings with it significant advancements in the water leak industry.
The Leak Doctor is proud to have pioneered many of theses advancements. With our state of the art leak detection equipment, those days are over. We are able to identify the source of the water intrusion as quickly as possible, many times before the leak has caused extensive damage.
