Slab Leak

Slab Leak Detection and Repair

If you live along the Treasure Coast of Florida, you likely have a slab foundation. These structures are effective and easy to install, however, they can make it very difficult to locate leaking pipes. This can create potentially serious problems for home and business owners in the area.

At Rapid Leak Detection, we provide state-of-the-art slab leak repair and detection services to residents in Stuart, Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce, Florida. Using non-invasive equipment, we can pinpoint the location of any leak and restore or reroute the damaged pipe with minimal disruption to your home. Without our specialized equipment, locating a slab leak typically requires the dismantling or breaking into the slab foundation itself.

An undetected slab leak can cause significant damage to your home’s foundation, as well as first-floor flooding and high repair bills. Warning signs of a potential slab leak include:

  • Visible shifts in the soil around your home
  • Uneven growth of grass near the foundation
  • Cracks in the foundation
  • ┬áildew or warm spots on the floor
  • Sounds of running water, even when all taps are turned off

What Causes Slab Leaks?
Soil shifts and expands in response to changes in moisture, whether rain or overnight dew. Occasionally this shifting soil can wear away at the pipes in the foundation. A leaking pipe produces even more moisture, which slowly erodes away the earth under the slab and can lead to a cave-in.

If you notice any sign of a potential slab leak, contact Rapid Leak Detection today. Our trained technicians will have your home leak-free and safe from water damage in as little time as possible.
