How does this leak start?

Slab leaks are usually a direct result of the mixing of the minerals in our tap water and the copper pipes resulting in foundation settlement. Incorrect installation of pipes may be another cause of a slab leak. However, even properly installed pipes are vulnerable to leaks.

How do we detect this leak?

Our ELTE- electronic listening & tracing equipment- works flawlessly in assisting our highly trained technicians to quickly uncover a hidden leak slab.

How can we fix this leak?

We utilize all common industry fixes. After the leak is located and isolated we will talk with you about the different options for repairing your specific problem and the associated costs. Our goal is to help you make the best decision for your specific situation.

How long for the leak repair?

Common slab repairs require two full working days. The first day we conduct the leak detection service and prep for the repair. The second day we provide for repair and reinstatement. If conditions prevent a quick repair, we may install a temporary bi-pass line so that you are not inconvenienced by the water being shut off. We will always work with you to meet your needs as best as we can.

We can also work to find an appointment time before or after work, because we know that you have a job to do as well. Same day service, upfront pricing, 24/7 urgent care—we’ve got you covered. Stay alert to signs of a slab leak problem, and give Pink Plumbing & Sewers a call for all of your slab leak repair needs.
