Expert Slab Leak Detection in Dallas-Fort Worth

Slab Leak Detection

A slab leak can go undetected for months or even years before you begin to see signs that a leak is damaging your property. Bacon knows how difficult finding and repairing a slab leak can be for homeowners. That's why our technicians are extensively trained to detect leaks during our slab leak detection service. Once a leak is detected, a solution can be implemented to fix the leak so that your property is protected while the damage to your home is minimized.

What is a Slab Leak?

Over time, weather and foundation shifts can cause dramatic, yet unassuming changes to your home. The term "slab leak" is used to explain any non-visible leak in the pipes or drains installed throughout the concrete foundation of your home. These slab leaks can happen on any drain line that has either cold or hot water. Because slab leaks are not immediately visible, they often go undetected for long periods of time, which can lead to devastating consequences such as the collapse of the foundation, the growth of mold, and more.

Common causes of slab leaks include:

Installation issues:
One way that slab leaks can occur in your home is if your pipes in your foundation weren’t installed properly or were damaged before or during installation. This makes it harder for your foundation’s pipes to function properly over time.
Shifting Ground Or Foundation
When your house shifts on its foundation from environmental impact or general aging of the home, this puts pressure on your foundation’s pipes. Too much pressure can cause your pipes to burst.
Wear From Age
The older the pipes, the more prone they are to leaks.
Abrasion
As water flows through your pipes, the pipes naturally expand and contract. The piping material can wear down over time if there is not enough room for the pipes to expand.
Corrosion
The underground environment can also cause pipes to wear down over time, especially if the pipes are made of copper.
