It happens when pipes below the foundation or slab leak, which can cause problems such as humidity issues in your home or severe water damage. Repair is quickly needed before further damage or costs incur.

Leak Detection and Plumbing Repair

Identify the Leak

The first step in the process is leak detection. You will need a professional with the appropriate tools to identify if there is a leak and where it is located. You may have a slab leak if you have:

  • Higher than normal water bills
  • The sound of running water with no known source
  • Mold growth
  • Low water pressure
  • Moisture on your baseboards
  • Wet floors or carpets with no known source
  • A shifted foundation

If you suspect you have a slab leak, contact Gogo Rooter, your San Jose plumber, at (408) 282-7026 immediately.

These problems can be caused by pipe corrosion, wear and age, ground shifting, or improper installation. Regardless of the cause, you will need a plumbing repair.

Repair the Slab Leak

The one thing you don’t want to do is allow a contractor to jackhammer your foundation until the leak is located. Experienced plumbers have the tools and expertise to pinpoint leak locations and jackhammer a small section of the floor.

Once the leak is repaired, the concrete is put back. The other option is to re-pipe the home which our professional plumber will discuss with you if that’s the necessity.
