Slab Leaks

Slab Leaks are some of most difficult leaks to address for they happen when the plumbing or pipes underneath your home’s foundation begin leak. Slab leaks can occur for a number of reasons including; faulty installation, soil conditions, water pressure, pipe impurities, old age, as well as the sediment, minerals, and chemicals in the water itself. This type of leak can pose a real problem because it is hard to identify and also hard to reach.

Slab Leak Detection

What does Pegasus Leak Detection exactly do in regards to slab leaks? Not only do we find the leak, we also find out where that pipe that has the leak runs. This gives two possible repair options with you and or your contractor to review. Slab leaks can be repaired in one of two basic ways. First you can do a spot repair, which would be where a contractor would dig up the exact spot of the leak, and replace the broken part of that pipe. The second method is where the contractor replaces the entire run of pipe that has the leak. That is what is known as a re-pipe.
