Slab leak repair will cost more than a pinhole leak

Slab leak repair is plumbing language for a leaking pipe under the concrete foundation of a house.

This video shows a slab leak repaired for hundreds of dollars less than the local competitors. The entire job can last a few hours, nevertheless , you should prepare to be without water all day.
The difficult part about these repairs can be gaining access. After a leak detection is performed (if needed) the plumber will jackhammer concrete around the pipe after having taken steps to prevent cracks.

 

Fixing a slab leak will actually save money in the long run

Once i have dug up and exposed the copper pipe , the soldering process begins. I do not recommend attempting to weld or braze copper on your own.

Next, the water can be turned on and tested for leaks. Remember, the longer the leak goes on the higher your water bill.  Save money and call Guaranteed Plumbing in Victorville, CA.  Pay for a plumber online here
My customer’s best assurance a slab leak repair can provide is not limited to a reduced water bill. When water constantly flows under a house the foundation itself can be undermined (literally). Other repercussions of slab leaks include standing water which in turn produces mosquitoes and leads to the spread of disease.

I notice homeowners are notified by water companies when the water use has spiked. It is not the responsibility of the water company to fix water pipes on your property.

My advice to avoid undermining a valuable property and the stuff inside; fix the slab leak or pinhole leak soon.
