Slab Leak Detection and Repair in Ontario, CA

Living in Ontario, CA, we don’t have as many homes with basements as other parts of the country. Rather, the majority of our homes are built on solid slabs of concrete, of which most of our plumbing is running underneath. This relatively inaccessible plumbing can and sometimes does spring a leak, and then you have what’s called a slab leak on your hands.

Discovering a slab leak under your home’s foundation can be a scary experience, but not one that the team here at Sweetwater Plumbing can’t handle! Slab leaks can be difficult to detect, particularly for the average homeowner. However, we have specialized leak detection equipment that will help us locate the exact source of the leak so we can determine the best method to resolve it.

What’s more, if your slab leak is a covered damage, we’ll speak directly with your insurance company to spare you the hassle of tiresome paperwork. We take care of all the hard parts and send the bill directly to your insurance company as a customer courtesy, to limit your inconvenience as much as possible. With or without insurance coverage you can count on our Ontario, CA staff for free estimates, low prices, 24 hour service, and more! Give us a call today.

Do You Have a Slab Leak?

One of the most disheartening things about slab leak detection for homeowners is that they don’t have regular visual access to their underground plumbing, and thus rarely know if a leak has started until it turns into a huge problem. Not to worry though: there are signs you can watch out for that indicate a slab leak is present. As soon as you suspect a problem, be sure to contact our professionals for expert slab leak detection. Signs of a slab leak include:

  • Increasing water bills with no unusual water use.
  • The sound of running water without any taps on.
  • You feel a "hot spot" on your flooring as you walk across it.
  • You’ve noticed cracks along your walls or ceiling that indicate the foundation of your home may have shifted.
  • There is mildew, mold, or pools of water on or under your carpeting.
  • Your water pressure suddenly drops.
  • You have an inside drain that keeps clogging no matter what preventive measurements you take.

What Are Your Slab Leak Repair Options?

Once you know that you are experiencing a slab leak, you have a couple different options of how to approach. Many homeowners choose to spot–repair it. However, for fear of it occurring again you may either want to have your foundation plumbing completely repiped or have your plumbing re–routed so that it no longer runs under the foundation at all. The age and quality of your Ontario, CA home and its plumbing has a lot to do with what option will be best for you.
