Call Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air for Exceptional Slab Leak Repair in San Antonio

A slab leak is one of the most difficult plumbing problems to find and fix. It’s easy to have one and not notice; its seepage can be a nightmare for homeowners. Count on the industry leaders from Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and AirTotal Home Comfort to save you from headache and worry.

A Slab Leak?

A slab leak occurs when a pipe ruptures underneath the concrete foundation of your home, driveway, or pool deck. This type of leak is complicated to repair because a professional must break through the concrete slab to reach the pipe.

Symptoms

When you have a leak hidden deep beneath solid concrete at your residence, it can be very difficult to detect. So how can you tell? Check for the following signs:

  • High water bills: If you are experiencing higher water bills without using more water, there is most likely water escaping a pipe somewhere in your residence, under the slab or inside a wall. It’s important that you have a professional perform an assessment immediately.
  • Dripping or splashing sounds: Do you hear running or dripping water in your home when all water sources aren’t switched on?
  • Cracks in walls or flooring: A slab leak can wash away the dirt that supports the foundation of your home in San Antonio, compromising its support. The weight of the building can cause the foundation to sag and form cracks in the walls or floor.
  • Mildew underneath the carpet: The outflowing water can seep up through the concrete slab, creating the perfect environment for mold growth.
  • Hot areas: A possible indication of a hot water leak beneath your residence is a hot spot on the floor of your house.

A simple way to determine if water is escaping into or below your home is by utilizing the meter test. Simply turn off all faucets and ensure there are no appliances using water, then go out to your meter and have a look. If the needle is still moving, there is a definite leak, and you should ask a professional for emergency maintenance.

Ways to Treat a Slab Leak

After we have located the source of the leak, there are several repair options we might use. Their effectiveness will vary by property and the severity of the damage:

  1. With modern construction, it is often as simple as our plumber opening 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 there are several leaks throughout the water line, 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 access.

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 can help you with one-hour emergency service during normal business hours when scheduling permits.
