How do Slab Leaks Develop?

It is difficult to know about these breakdowns, because they are buried under the foundation. However, our team has the specialized slab leak detection equipment to locate these malfunctions and repair them.
  • Poor water quality. If you have low-quality in your home, it could cause corrosion or damage to the pipes that it runs through. For instance, if your water is very acidic or very base – the pipes will eventually develop weak spots and could develop leaks. You will need expert slab leak detection support to locate these problems
  • Water pressure that is too high. If the water running through your pipes is too highly-pressurized, it could cause the pipes to repeatedly expand too rapidly and eventually to crack under the pressure. These leaks tend to move very fast and can cause a lot of damage in a short time
