Slab leaks are not a common problem, but they can develop in homes with older plumbing lines. They occur when the water lines under your home’s foundation leak due to corrosion or damage. Slab leaks are particularly dangerous because they can weaken your property’s structural integrity and create a significant amount of water damage.
Don’t leave a slab leak unattended for long. If you suspect a leak, contact us for professional inspection. Our experts will determine the location of the leak and provide you with an estimate for repair. We serve customers throughout Paso Robles and surrounding areas in San Luis Obispo County.
What are the Signs of a Slab Leak?

Detecting and Fixing a Slab Leak
Slab leaks first need to be detected before repair work can begin. Professional inspection and leak detection is crucial to pinpointing the affected area and will help minimize damage to your property during repair.
Pinpointing the Leak
Our team will first trace out your underground water line using a digital pipe locator. This allows us to identify the depth and route of your line.
We will then look for the exact location of the leak using advanced water leak detection technology, including thermal imaging and acoustic testing.
Both our pipe locating and leak detection methods are noninvasive and will provide us with an accurate understanding of your situation before repair work begins.
