Grapevine Slab Leak Repair Detection and Repair
Detecting a home water leak detection as soon as possible is an essential part of protecting your home, and finding an honest experienced leak detection company is vital. If the dirt under the slab is moving, as is common in Texas, pipes can be compromised, and spring leaks.
A leaking drain pipe under your house in Grapevine can cause the soil to continue to move, which can lead to a worse leak. Even a small leak can produce expensive damages. A small leak undetected, can leak thousands of gallons per year, costing you a ton of money, and home damages.
In severe cases, the slab and flooring can give way and flood the entire ground floor, destroying floor coverings, cabinets, furniture and appliances. When that happens, foundation repair is only one of many serious problems. Leaks under the slab can remove the soil and cause the slab to cave in. When the slab fails, the weight of the concrete breaks the plumbing lines beneath, causing a rush of water into the home.
Do not risk the well being of your home in Grapevine Texas, if you notice:
- Hot spots on the floor
- Hear water running when all faucets are off
- See the meter spinning when all faucets are off
- High water bills
- Water coming out from the sides of your slab
- Cracks in foundation, or walls
you should call Schrader Plumbing right away. We will diagnose, and if necessary locate and repair your slab leak before it’s too late. We offer up front pricing, non evasive repairs, and clean friendly service.
How Do You Repair A Slab Leak?
If we determine you have a water leak under your slab foundation, or a leaking drain pipe under your house, based on various factors, there are a couple of alternatives to repair. The preferred method is generally re-routing the pipe that is compromised. This usually allows for less damages to your slab and flooring, as we access the pipe in 2 areas surrounding the leak, and install new pipe in a wall or surrounding area. If this repair is not possible, we will have to access the pipe through the slab or tunnel under the slab to access it, and repair it at the compromised spot. We do our best to take care of your home, and create the least amount of damage possible, then refill with concrete.
Do I Really Have To Fix It Now?
Every minute you have water or sewage running under your home, damage is being done, by shifting the dirt, and allowing the foundation to move, cracking walls, flooring, and potentially causing mold and bacteria to grow. We recommend getting it repaired immediately, to prevent further costs and damages to your home.
How Can I Be Sure I Have A Slab Leak?
We perform tests that prove without a doubt whether or not you have a leak, and location services that pinpoint them, whether in a wall, your yard, or under your slab. You can book with 100% confidence that we will find a leak if you have one. These tests include static tests, pressure tests, and more.
How Much Does A Slab Leak Repair Cost?
Every situation is different, so it’s impossible to put a general price on a slab leak repair. Call our offices, and we will give you an upfront price on testing and assessing your situation, and in most cases, once our plumber looks at your situation, performs tests, and locates the leak, they will be able to give you an up front estimate on the repair.
