Slab leaks are complicated. They may even be the most complicated plumbing issue that a homeowner can experience.

No matter the time of day or night, we offer slab leak detection services in Redwood City 24/7.
How Does A Slab Leak Occur?
A leak that is found in your slab on grade foundations is called a slab leak. Slab leaks frequently occur beneath the floors and build pressure. This is why slab leak repair and detection is so difficult. They are both hard to locate and to reach. But Benjamin Franklin Slab Leak Detection Redwood City can help. Our experienced plumbers are able to tackle even the most complex slab leak repairs. We have the education and expertise needed to detect, assess, and repair any slab leaks in your property.
How Do You Detect a Slab Leak?
Our slab leak detection services in Redwood City are second to none. Our well-qualified plumbers are equipped with specially designed electronic devices that are able to easily detect slab leaks. Yet, you may be able to detect where a slab leak may be before contacting us!
- Find the pipe layout under the slab. Listen to the piping and notice changes in the pipes’ sounds.
- Search for warm or cold spots on your floors. The temperature of the floor affected will be determined by the location of the slab leak, and whether the slab leak is located on a hot or cold water pipe. Feel around carefully for spots that may be colder or hotter than the surrounding affected area.
- Turn off your property’s main water source.
- Jackhammer (if able and experienced) the slab at its point of leaking. Get as close in proximity as possible. If you are not able and experienced using a jackhammer, call Slab Leak Detection Marin for immediate, emergency service.
How Do We Repair a Slab Leak?
After we determine the slab leak’s location, our plumbers will repair the leak with advanced technology. Depending on the situation, we may use different tests and technologies not limited to
- Moisture probing,
- Fibre optic borescopes,
- Pressure testing,
- And audio and video inspections.
Not one of these methods will damage your property’s floors or walls. After repairing the leak, we reroute the piping beneath the property’s foundation and install overhead pipes. Rerouting the pipes will distribute water from the source to its destination with optimal water flow.
