Slab Leak Repair in Riverside & San Bernardino County
Proudly Serving Home & Business Owners throughout Southern California
At Cisneros Brothers Plumbing, our San Bernardino County plumbers provide free electronic leak detection services. When you find that your gas and water bills are high or you find that there are hot areas on your concrete floor or even wet spots, or if you know your faucets have been turned off but you still hear the sound of water running, you may have a slab leak. This means that a pipe is leaking in or under the concrete floor. Some homes were built with soft copper tubing that was placed in the cement slab before it cured. This tubing may have been bent or kinked during installation which allows it to eventually weaken and begin to leak through a very small hole. The problem is frequently caused by installation that was not well done or by corrosion, particularly with hot water pipes. If the problem is allowed to persists, it could even lead to structural damage of the home.
Detecting the Leak
It is very important to locate the leak as soon as possible, and this is why we provide leak detection at no cost to you. We use electronic leak detection equipment that helps us find the leak without needing to dig anything up. Our expert San Bernardino County plumbing technicians are well-trained on the equipment and have the experience necessary to detect leaks. We will examine the entire slab to determine whether there is only one leak or if there are a number of slab leaks. Once you know where the leaks are and how many there are, you can make some decisions on repairing the leak or leaks. If you are not sure whether or not you have a leak, our free detection service is unbeatable.
Risks of Not Repairing Leaks
If you are concerned about the cost of making the repairs, it is important to understand the problems that can occur if the leak or leaks are not repaired, including:
- High water bills
- Low water pressure
- House foundation and/or basement remains constantly wet
- Mold grows and causes additional problems
- Structural damage to the home that is irreparable
While using a jackhammer to break through the cement to the pipe is one option, another option is to repipe. The idea is that the pipes in the house are rebuilt in such a way that the pipes in the slab are bypassed. As your repiping specialists in San Bernardino County, Cisneros Brothers Plumbing can re-route your water, gas lines, and even your drains
