Slab Leak Repair Services in Santa Fe, NM
Of all the problems plumbers face, few are as serious as a slab leak: a leak occurring in pipes buried below (or in some cases within) the porch or foundation of your home. They’re problematic not because the leak itself is unusual, but because detecting it and getting to it can be extremely hard to do. Here in Santa Fe, NM, they happen more often than you might think, and without fast action, they can cause incalculable damage to your home.
With Glorieta Creek Mechanical LLC on the job, you have a trained ally with real experience dealing with slab leaks. We can assess the situation with speed and accuracy, then work with you to find the best solution to the problem. The goal is to ensure you don’t have to worry about a slab leak again. Put us on your team and let us help you set the problem right.
How to Detect a Slab Leak
In most cases, the slab leak itself is just a simple leak like any other. If it were taking place below your sink, you’d notice it right away and call in a plumber to fix it in just a few days. The trouble with slab leaks is that they can go for months or even years before being noticed. The sooner you can spot the issue the better, and here in Santa Fe, it pays to check reasonably often. Strange puddles or sounds of running water may be an indicator, especially if they take place near the foundations of the house. You might also check for warm or cold spots on your concrete, unexpectedly high water bills or — in the worst cases — cracks starting to form in the concrete. Even if they don’t stem from a slab leak, such issues require a plumber’s attention.
Fixing a Slab Leak
At Glorieta Creek Mechanical LLC, we usually look for the most efficient way to fix a slab leak, causing the least amount of damage to your property. The first step is to pinpoint the spot of the leak, which we can do with high–end vibration detectors and sonic detectors. We’ll then discuss the means of resolving the issue for you. If need be, we can apply trenchless technology to the issue, or simply seal off the pipe and run a new one around your foundation where it won’t cause similar problems. We’ll also assess the damage caused by the slab leak and advocate the best means of repairing it fast.
