Slab Leak

Slab Leak Repair in Jacksonville, FL

Many homeowners have never heard of or experienced a slab leak and aren't aware of the severity of the issue. In Florida, traditional homes are built on top of a concrete pad called a foundation. The foundation keeps the home from slanting or sinking as the ground settles, which is especially important in the scorching summer months. In typical home construction, important pipes run underneath this foundation. Any damage to these pipes is known as a slab leak.

Why Are Slab Leaks a Problem in the St. Augustine Area?

Slab leaks are a common problem in Florida. In older homes, the problem is usually due to faulty cast iron piping. Any home built before 1960 had cast-iron piping, and underground service lines can corrode over time, leading to problems with slab leaks. Copper pipes are also prone to this problem.

Soil shift is another problem common in the Palm Coast. Many homes are built on expansive soils that shift over time. This can create instability under the slab, resulting in leaks.

Slab leaks are problematic for two reasons. First, they run up your water bill. Second, they can damage your property. Continued leaking under the slab can cause your home's foundation to become unstable, leaving you at risk for cracks and other problems.

Slab leaks are issues to take seriously in Jacksonville. Call David Gray Plumbing at (904) 605-8190 to get help today.

The Slab Leak Repair Process

If we discover a slab leak in your home, our team can get to work repairing it. We offer several solutions for slab leak repair, including:

Rerouting or repiping: If only a short section of the pipe is causing the problem, we can reroute your water or repipe just that area. This is one of the quickest solutions and the one we will choose whenever possible.

Through-the-slab repairs: Sometimes, we have to break through the slab to reach the broken pipe.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I tell if I have a slab leak?

    Slab leaks are not always a noticeable problem until the leak grows and causes more damage to your home. Because pipes underneath your home’s slab are hidden, you can’t tell if they are leaking with just a look. Instead, you are going to look for signs that you have a leak.

    First, look for changes in your water bill. If you have a sudden spike without increased usage, it may be due to a slab leak. Second, listen to the sound of water running, which can indicate a leak. Finally, look for a warm spot on the floor, which happens when you have a slab leak in the copper pipe that controls the hot water.

  • Do puddles indicate a slab leak?
    Puddles are less common but can still indicate that you have a slab leak. Puddles can show up as wet spots inside your home or saturation in the ground outside your home. If these wet areas do not have a clear cause, and if they are near the edges of your home’s foundation, you may have a slab leak.
  • Why do homes develop slab leaks?
    Slab leaks can have many causes, but the most common cause is the age of the home. After about 25 years or so, a home’s plumbing can start to wear out and develop holes or other problems. This can lead to a slab leak that needs to be addressed quickly.
  • What should I do if I have a slab leak?
    If you think you might have a slab leak, give us a call for professional assistance from a licensed plumber. Our slab leak detection will verify that you have a leak and give us the necessary knowledge to repair it. The sooner you deal with the problem, the less waste and home damage you will experience.
  • How are slab leaks repaired?
    For residential properties, we will often reroute the piping to move the water past the leak. Sometimes, we need to do a direct repair, which requires us to expose the pipe through the floor. This is more precise but also more costly because the floor must get repaired. The best way to determine the proper repair solution for your home is to discuss your needs with a qualified plumber to assess your unique situation and create a custom repair plan.
