Identifying Slab Leaks

Concrete slab leaks can be incredibly dangerous. Ignoring them could lead to structural damage, putting your safety at risk. Knowing when to reach out to a professional for slab leak plumbing services is critical, so keep an eye out for the following:

  • An increase in water bills. A leak means water is constantly flowing from your pipes, which the water company will likely notice. Keep a close eye on how much you pay monthly, and contact a professional if the number increases significantly.
  • Warm spots on the floor. Have you noticed that certain areas of your floor feel warmer than normal? This could indicate that hot water has pooled underneath those locations, increasing their temperature.
  • Damp or discolored areas. Take note of any areas that seem unusually damp or off-color; if you can’t identify why, reach out to a plumber for slab leak detection and repair services.
  • The sound of running water, even when you aren’t using any plumbing fixtures. Listen carefully. Do you hear what sounds like water constantly running through your walls or underneath the floor? This could indicate a leak, so contact a plumber for slab leak repair ASAP.

Professional Detection Techniques

Once you’ve noticed signs you might have a slab leak, reach out to a plumber. These professionals will use specialized equipment and techniques to pinpoint a slab leak; these may include:

  • Pressure testing: As the name implies, pressure testing allows your plumber to test the pressure in your pipes. They’ll note any unusually low areas, as these could indicate a leak.
  • Electronic leak detection devices: These devices let professionals check for noises that might indicate a leak.
  • Ground microphones: Ground microphones, like electronic leak detection devices, help plumbers listen for the sound of running water underneath a slab, detecting the leak’s exact location.

Repair Options

Once your plumber has located the leak, they can begin the repair process. How your plumber may approach professional slab leak repair services varies depending on the leak’s location and severity. Less serious cases, for example, may only require an epoxy coating. Sometimes, your plumber may be able to reroute your pipes; other times, they may need to replace the pipe entirely. A trained professional will take the time to assess the issue and provide you with the most effective solution.

Preventive Measures and Maintenance

Fixing slab leaks might reduce the damage, but it’s often better to avoid them entirely. Take the following steps to help reduce the risk of damage:

  • Schedule regular plumbing inspections: Sometimes, plumbing issues may develop without you noticing them. Plumbing inspections detect corroded pipes, cracks, and other issues before they become too severe so that you can repair them promptly.
  • Monitor water pressure: Use the right technology to detect changes in water pressure; if you notice a sudden dip, contact an expert.
  • Promptly address any signs of a leak: Don’t wait if you notice an issue; contact a plumber quickly to minimize the chances of long-term damage.
  • Maintain proper soil moisture levels around your foundation: Improper moisture levels could put undue pressure on your pipes, causing them to crack or burst. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels and take steps to adjust them accordingly.

I have had reason to use three different plumbing companies in Bloomington area. Covenant Plumbing has been the best! All of the technicians have been helpful. As they work they explain what's taking place and exactly how much it's going to cost if I choose to have something fixed. They're all very pleasant and respectful of my home and belongings as they work. And they always clean up as they go! I won't call anybody but them if I should need a plumber again. The office staff has also always been Pleasant and helpful. I don't hesitate to give all the people I've come in contact with and the company as a whole five stars!

Paying for the service was not fun, but the quality of human beings and quality of service I received was spectacular for this industry. Other companies like Roto-Rooter or other aggressive sales oriented plumbers are pretty horrible to work with, these guys were fantastic to have around my home, showing me their equipment, and answering any questions that I would have. Thank you covenant plumbing!

Update 5/28. Shane M did an excellent job explaining the issue! This is a great company.Miles F was very professional and courteous. He fixed everything that I needed and showed me what was broken. I did have a problem with my hot water after Miles left, so I called the company and they sent Cameron L right away. Cameron identified the issue and fixed the issue. This company did an excellent job. The price was a little high, plus the quality and guarantee is worth it. Please use this company for your plumbing needs.

I called for an estimate on running a new gas line to my pool heater. The person on the phone was friendly and very helpful in setting up an appointment that very day! Shane and David came on time …. Introduced themselves …and got to work quickly. I had an estimate within a half hour and the estimate was half as much as the one another plumber had given to me! Shane had suggestions on how best to do the job and indicated that he had completed lots of similar jobs. I had a great deal of confidence in him right away.Then I asked how long the job would take and how quickly they could schedule it. That’s when the big surprise came! The other plumber had told me he would have to check the schedule and said “maybe within the next two weeks.” Shane from Covenant Plumbing said “we can do it right now …. and it will only take a couple of hours.” I said “let’s do it.”Shane and David finished the job in a little over an hour and the new pool heater fired up right away. The new gas line looks great and works great. I could not be happier with the work they did for me. From my initial phone call and the friendly voice on the other end of the line to the completion of the job …. It was a great experience and I wholeheartedly recommend Covenant Plumbing!And recently…….Covenant did their annual inspection (a great bonus they provide) and found a few issues that needed repair. Jordan (a former Marine) found the problems …. did the repairs and even replaced a faulty toilet in just a few hours. Once again, I could not be happier with Covenant Plumbing. They are my plumbers!

Covenant’s expert (Shane M) came to fix the water softener and he came on time and did thorough investigation and he was able to find the issue and fixed in less than 20 mins. He explained the issue in detail and also the fix. Good job Shane and covenant team and keep up the good work.
