A slab leak (or foundation leak) is the plumbing industry term for a small hole that has developed in a copper water line below the concrete slab of your home. At Savannah Thompson and Thompson we have over 40 years experience locating and repairing even the most complex slab leaks.
Breaking into the slab or foundation of your home without 100% positive confirmation of a leak location is not what we do. Locating a slab leak requires a skilled and licensed plumber with technical expertise.
Locating leaks non-destructively requires the use of modern tools such as electronic amplification equipment and electromagnetic pipeline locators. With the proper equipment, leaks can be found and repaired with minimal disruption to your property. In many cases, only a single floor tile needs to be removed and replaced. Savannah Thompson and Thompson’s highly trained technicians use the most up to date detection equipment to accurately locate the leak to save time and money.
Once we have located the leak using state of the art electronic amplification equipment or gas tracer systems, we can ascertain which option will work best.Leak detection with minimal destruction of the surrounding environment is something we strive for at Savannah Thompson and Thompson. Options for repairing a slab leak may include:
We can open up the slab at the spot of the leak and repair it.
