Accessing the Slab Leak
Once the location of the leak is detected, the experts will use a jackhammer to break a hole in the plate. The flooring must be removed so that the concrete is exposed. The dirt is then removed to expose the leaking pipes.
Water Lines Repair
Leaks are caused from aging water lines made of copper. Over time, the wear makes holes in the tube that cause the leak. The leaking part has to be cut and replaced with new copper tubing that is soldered to the existing tube.
Sewer Lines Repair
Sewer lines contain toxic human waste and experts are trained in the proper handling of this. Sewer lines require a type of rubber that is connected to the parts of the sewer pipes that are leaking.
Repairing a slab leak is not a job for just anyone. It requires experience and skill so that mistakes and accidents are avoided that could lead to other damage. You’ll be thankful at the end of the month when you receive a reasonable water bill that you selected a competent professional to do the work.
