Slab Leak Detection & Repair In Oahu
When it comes to water leaks, we all know how much of a mess they can cause if they’re unidentified. With water and structural damage at risk, it’s important to recognize a leak and call professionals quickly. This has never been more true than for slab leaks.
At All Aloha Plumbing, we treat slab leaks seriously. They’re notoriously difficult to diagnose and even trickier to repair. You need an expert team of plumbers and leak detection specialists to make sure your slab leak is taken care of completely. When you want the stress and uncertainty of a slab leak taken off your shoulders, count on Oahu’s premier plumbers!
What’s A Slab Leak?
It takes a lot of pipes to get water to every faucet and spigot in your home. That’s why your plumbing system runs through all your walls and floors — and into your home’s foundation. While this is a necessity for your home, it also makes pipe leaks in the foundation much more difficult to fix. Pipes can spring leaks for many reasons, but any kind of leaking water is dangerous for your home.
It may be hard to believe that your massive foundation could move at all, but tiny soil erosion and weather events can slightly shift your foundation’s position. With your plumbing completely encased in concrete, there are only inches of spare room that can quickly shrink. When rough concrete rubs and scrapes against your pipes, leaks can form!
Signs You Have A Slab Leak
Early recognition is the number one key to slab leaks. The faster that you know there’s a problem, the faster we can show up and fix it — and the less damage that’s allowed to occur. Keep your eye out for these symptoms in and around your home:
- Sudden increases in water consumption
- Visible water trickling from your slab
- Damp or warped flooring
- Foul odors
- Mold growth
- Sounds of water running (especially under the floor)
Your best course of action is to call a qualified plumber as soon as you notice a symptom of a slab leak. You can also shut off the main water valve to your home in an attempt to slow the flow of water under the slab, but the ultimate repair will come from a professional plumber.
