Call Comerford Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for Experienced Slab Leak Repair in Livermore

Are you struggling with a leaking concrete slab at your home? A slab leak is one of the most difficult plumbing problems to detect and remedy. This kind of seepage can be a nightmare for homeowners. Fortunately, the industry leaders at Comerford Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can spare you the headache.

What Is A Slab Leak?

A slab leak occurs when a pipe ruptures beneath the concrete foundation of your home, driveway or pool deck. These leaks are difficult to repair because in order for the damage to be reached, it requires that a professional break through the concrete slab to find the affected pipe.

Symptoms

When you have a leak that’s hidden deep beneath solid stone at your residence, they can be very difficult to detect. So how can you tell? Check your home for the following signs of a slab leak:

  • High water bills: When your water bill goes up despite not increasing your usage, you’re probably dealing with a leak somewhere. While the damage may also have occurred inside a wall, it is important that you have a professional immediately perform an assessment.
  • Dripping or splashing sounds: Do you hear running or dripping water in your home, when all water sources are turned off?
  • Cracks in walls or flooring: A leak beneath a concrete slab will slowly wash away the earth that supports the foundation of your Clearwater, St. Petersburg or Tampa home. Without this support, the building’s weight can cause it to sag, forming cracks in the walls or floor.
  • Mildew underneath the carpet: A slab leak can slowly but consistently seep up through the concrete floor, creating the perfect environment for the spread of mold or mildew.
  • Hot spot: A possible indication of a hot water leak beneath your residence is a hot spot on the floor of your house.

An easy way to confirm if water is escaping into or below your home is by observing the water meter. Simply turn off all faucets and ensure there are no appliances using water, then head outside to watch the meter. If the needle is still moving, there is a definite leak, and it’s time to contact the professionals.

Using their extensive training, our team of repair technicians strive to keep the entrance hole as small as possible, sometimes even minimizing the disruption of property to a single floor tile. This helps you save on the cost of labor and repairs.

Repair Options for a Slab Leak

Once we’ve found the source of your leak, there are several repair options we might use. Their effectiveness will vary by property and the severity of the leak itself:

  1. With newer construction, it is often as simple as your plumber opening up the concrete directly above the damage and fixing the pipe.
  2. Sometimes with old systems, or a system with a history of problems, it is more cost effective for the technician to repipe the entire line rather than attempt a repair.
  3. If several slab leaks are found across the water lines, it is sometimes possible for us to apply an epoxy coating to the inside of the pipe to seal the damaged areas, rather than breaking multiple holes in the floor for direct.

With our flat-rate pricing, there are no hidden costs, and any additional expenses will be discussed with you so there are never any surprises. We also offer one-hour emergency service during normal business hours when scheduling permits.
