Slab Leak Detection

Slab leak detection requires an experienced plumbing expert and a careful, thorough process using modern tools like specialized leak detection equipment. Slab leak detection services are conducted by Roto-Rooter’s expert technicians, who will find and repair slab leaks with minimal destruction to your property.

A slab leak happens when the pipes in the water and sewer lines beneath your home break, crack or burst. The leak is not actually in the slab, but in the pipes beneath it. Because it is underground, the source of a slab leak is not visible to the naked eye. Rather, there are several common signs that suggest you have a slab leak in your home:

  • The sound of running water when all water is turned off
  • A spinning water meter, even though no water is running inside or outside your home
  • Cracks in your walls or flooring
  • Mildew or noticeable moisture under carpets or flooring
  • The smell of sewage could indicate a break in the sewer or a drain line
  • A recent bug problem due to added ground moisture
  • Higher-than-average water bills

Roto-Rooter provides complete slab leak detection and repair services. If you suspect a slab leak in your home, call your local Roto-Rooter plumber for a thorough inspection. In the event of flooding caused by a slab leak, Roto-Rooter also provides full-service water damage cleanup and restoration services.

Water Leak Detection Equipment

Many household water leaks are not immediately obvious or visible, meaning they can potentially go undetected for years. For instance, water supply lines to toilets, showers, bathtubs, and sinks are usually located behind walls, under floors and underground. Slow leaks in hidden areas can cause extensive damage before you even realize the leak exists. Plumbing leak detection requires a plumbing professional with the right leak detection equipment.

We have specialized water leak detection equipment that allows our service technicians to pinpoint the exact location of the leak. Our equipment is sensitive and accurate, and allows our team to then make the repair as quickly and efficiently as possible. Modern water leak detection equipment such as electronic amplification equipment and electromagnetic pipeline locators lead plumbers straight to the source of a leak with minimal disruption to your property.

Water Leak Prevention

When it comes to avoiding water damage, prevention is the best measure. Costly leaks can be silent and can show up on your monthly water bill as a huge cost increase. Performing regular water leak detection is a homeowner’s first line of defense.
