Beneath the concrete slab of your home are pipes that move water to your kitchen, bathroom, and to the rest of your home. But have you ever imagined what happens when there is leak in the pipe? These kinds of leaks are called slab leaks (or foundation leaks) and they can cause a lot of damage to your house. These leaks are sometimes called pinholes leaks when they occur above the floor. Reactions between the minerals and the copper pipes can lead to such leaks. However, PVC pipes can have hairline cracks from the construction process (or harsh winter) that result in problems down the road.
Regardless of the cause, foundation leak detection can be as easy as noticing spots or a warm water presence on the floor. At times, you can spot them from the exterior if your foundation is continually wet in a concentrated area.
What McKinney Residents Can Know About Foundation Leak Detection
Slab leaks can emit continuous water flow, and in most cases lead to increased water bills. You may not notice the increase all at once, as the leak may worsen over time resulting in an incremental rise in costs. Apart from the higher water bills, foundation leaks are likely going to damage your home by weakening the concrete slab over time. This can be dangerous, hence the need to call a professional plumber who is experienced in slab leak detection.
Locating a licensed master plumber who has actual experience in foundation leak detection can be a difficult thing. There are many plumbing companies out there who offer water leak detection services, but some of them actually call a 3rd party with detection equipment once they arrive. This can result in higher costs to the homeowner. At Hackler plumbing, we only send out qualified plumbing contractors to ensure our customers are given the best service possible.
