Early Slab Leak Detection Can Help Prevent Costly Foundation and Slab Leak Repair.
Moisture that is coming to the surface of your floor is a sign that you may have a slab leak. If you see a wet spot on your floor, then call a professional plumber to diagnose the problem.

As a local family owned and operated business, we offer friendly, attentive service to all of our customers. A leak in your home is no match for the technology we use to first determine the cause of a slab leak, and then repair it quickly and efficiently.
Soil Shift Can Cause Plumbing Leaks
Plumbing lines buried beneath slabs are vulnerable to shifting soils. If the soil moves too much, plumbing lines can develop leaks. A slow pinhole 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.
In severe cases, the slab and flooring can erupt and flood every room on the ground floor, ruining floor coverings, furniture, water heaters and other 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.
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, Scottsdale Plumber?

Preventive Plumbing: the Path to Early Leak Detection
Leak detection is a vital part of assuring your home’s plumbing system is functioning well and safely. You stand to save a lot of money on needlessly high water bills and avoid possibly having to spend tens of thousands of dollars on foundation repair and restoring a flooded home.
Scottsdale plumber recommends annual plumbing tune-ups as the best way to spot little problems before they have a chance to become big problems.
Our licensed plumbers will perform an 11-point tune-up on your home’s plumbing system and fixtures, including a water pressure test. Low pressure may indicate a leak.
