Early Slab Leak Detection Can Help Prevent Costly Foundation and Slab Leak Repairs.

A lot of homes in the Lubbock area are built on concrete slabs because the soil is very unstable and unsuitable for basements. Slab foundations reduce the structural risk to your home, but it doesn’t eliminate it. WesTech Plumbing can help you eliminated the problems.


What can cause a leak

Soil Shift Can Cause Plumbing Leaks

In severe cases, the slab and flooring can erupt and flood every room on the ground floor, ruining floor coverings, furniture and appliances. When that happens, foundation repair is only one of several serious problems. Or a leak beneath the slab can erode the soil and cause the slab to cave in. When the slab fails, the weight of the concrete breaks the plumbing lines beneath, causing a rush of water into the home.

Plumbing lines buried beneath slabs are vulnerable to shifting soils. If the soil moves too much, plumbing lines can develop leaks. A slow leak beneath a home can cause the soil to shift more, which can make the leak worse. The potential for increasing damage makes early leak detection essential. Even the smallest of leaks can yield devastating results. A leak the size of a pinhead, for example, can waste 360,000 gallons per year, enough to fill 12,000 bathtubs to overflowing.

Slab leak detection and foundation leak repair play a vital role in keeping your home’s foundation intact. We would much rather locate a suspected leak than to do major repair work afterward. But how do you know when to call your plumbing repair company, WesTech Plumbing?
