Cathedral Plumbing utilizes a variety of state-of-the-art technologies for water leak detection depending on the specific circumstances.
As to what might cause a slab water leak, there are a number of possible reasons. One reason, and a farily common one, is soil that contains some component that creates a chemical reaction when brought into contact with certain softer metals like copper. This may result in a slab leak soon after the installation of the plumbing system, but it can also occur years later. Another relatively common slab leak cause is that the galvanized or copper pipes in your plumbing system transport drinkable water, which by necessity for bacterial reasons contains trace amounts of chlorine. Unfortunately, despite the benefits, chlorine also oxidizes metals, particularly softer metals like copper and, over time, can create a slab water leak.
