Qik Plumbing has been discovering slab leaks and correcting them since 1985. We’ve got the past experiences and knowledge to identify any slab leak. There are many techniques that we utilize for detecting slab leaks: 1) we utilize specialized listening units to discover the sound of dripping water 2) we have electronic tools that can help us discover the existence of water underground.
Once we find the source of a leak, we gain access to it. If the leak is underneath concrete we will, typically, break up the surrounding concrete until we reveal the dirt and the pipe underneath it. When the line is located we cut off the damaged section (after turning off water to your home if it’s a water line) and replace it with a new piece that can last longer.
Fixing a sewer line should be a job manages by specialists because of the risk of causing further harm along with the health risk of exposure to human waste.
