A slab leak occurs when water pipes break, corrode or leak into the foundation or concrete of a home causing an inconvenient and messy issue or homeowners. Often there are subtle signs of a slab leak that initially seem harmless. You might hear the sound of running water despite water valves being shut off or potentially feel a hot spot on the floor of your home. Eventually a slab leak will present itself as a much larger issue causing flooding or mold growth if the leak has spread to the drywall of your home.

Slab leaks can occur for different reasons, but at Amigo Rooter and Plumbing we generally see slab leaks resulting from:

  • Pipe corrosion due to chemically treated soil
  • Extended exposure to vibrations
  • Pressure from changes in the ground from construction, traffic or human error in construction and maintenance
  • Defective construction or materials

Slab Leak Repair

Depending on the extent and amount of leak present, our team has developed three techniques that work for nearly all repairs in slabs and foundations.

The first technique is a simple spot repair where the pipe in question is repaired without extensive work on the foundation or concrete. The second plan of action uses our skilled technicians to repipe and reroute lines in order to repair the leak and avoid future issues with soil pressure. Our third and final repair route includes epoxy pipe coating which is the most effective for small leaks throughout the foundation.
