slab leak Repair & re-piping
When there are pipes with running water underneath a concrete floor slab, there are times that it can leak. When it leaks, it does much more than just wastewater. There can also be clogs that need drain cleaning underneath the slab. Slab leaks can lead to lots of potential major damage to a residential or commercial property. It can lead to moldy carpet, warped hardwood floors, erosion in the foundation that can lead to structural damage, and more! Luckily, when it comes to slab leaks, Presto Plumbing's top plumbers Jacksonville Fl can help. Our services involving slab leaks include:
Most properties in the Jacksonville Florida area have slab-on-grade foundations, which means that there is a concrete slab level with the surrounding soil. This means that all of the piping (gas, water, sewer) are likely running underneath and sometimes inside of the concrete. When a leak happens here, it is called a slab leak.
Presto Plumbing can help with any slab leak repairs. There are many options to choose from when it comes to a professional slab leak repair from us. We first do an inspection and perform some tests to determine where the leak is coming from.
If there is a single leak that is known with easy access to the leak, we can perform a spot repair. The cost can still vary depending on if it's commercial or residential and what needs to be restored after fixing the issue.
The preferred solution and usually most cost effective solution is to repipe the lines. When you repipe or reroute the gas, water, or sewer lines, we abandon the old plumbing and leave it there. We re-route the new plumbing outside the edge of the slab or through the attic.
Though it may mean much more piping, it still can be much more cost effective than jack hammering the concrete slab, fixing the problem, and then restoring the concrete and matching the exciting floor covering that was there!
Another advantage of re-piping and re-routing the plumbing lines is that future inspection and repair is much easier to handle if there is ever a future problem.
If the leaks are minor, another solution when repairing a slab leak is to line the inside of the pipes with a coating to cover any pinholes in copper piping or other minor leaks in main sewer lines.
