How Could A Pipe Leak While Encased In Concrete?
Sometimes we take for granted that everyone knows what a slab leak is, it’s a term that refers to a leak in the concrete foundation of your home. Slab leaks appear over time in copper or galvanized steel water lines. You might think, “How could a pipe leak while encased in concrete?” This scenario mostly occurs in older homes and the first culprit is poor installation. If water pipes were kinked or dented during installation, the affected area could cause the pipe to leak, especially if the foundation has shifted.
We're Your Escondido Slab Leak Repair And Detection Specialist
By nature, copper is a soft material; if the smallest stone in the concrete settles against the pipe for 20, 30, or even years 40, it is capable of creating a pinhole slab leak that can cause severe damage. Additionally, corroded pipes caused by years of hard water can cause a slab leak, most notably in galvanized steel pipes. Any of the above issues combined with shifting in the soil is a recipe for disaster. It's no mystery that California is infamous with turning soil caused by earthquakes. Poor drainage caused by negative slopes and standing water can also make a foundation to move. The slab leak detection and repair team at Big B's Plumbing can have your home back on track giving you the peace of mind you need.
