Leak Detection Specialist
Leak Detection and Slab Leak Repair Experts for Fort Worth and Surrounding Areas
Our plumbers specialize in Leak Detection. We offer Dependable Plumbing repair through years of experience and application, so you can count on us for quality workmanship. Slab Leaks are sometimes hard to catch and can be very costly if gone unnoticed. Water leaks can be found on the fixture itself, on the water pipe or underneath the slab. The earlier water leaks are detected, the better chance you have of saving your foundation from costly repairs, a flooded yard, a warped floor or cabinet damage.
Why Leak Detection?
We can use a video camera to go down the inside of your drains that will let you see exactly what the inside of your pipes look like. We have air test equipment and other tools for other testing purposes for pressure leaks and drain static pressure testing. There are many possibilities as to what is wrong with the sewer pipes and water lines, such as clogging with waste, sediment, and dirt buildup or even cracked pipes that have roots growing in them. If this happens, we are able to see the problem and locate it with accuracy using our video camera and locating equipment. It could even be that lightning has caused a water pipe to have a hole in it. We see this many times when the house electricity is grounded to the plumbing pipes.
We have two web sites and a blog; Slab Leak Specialist and Dependable Plumbing Company. Please check out our other web sites. There are many links there for you to read about our plumbing repair services, or just give us a call 817-447-2654.
Slab Leak Detection “Do It Yourself” Testing
1. Feel to see if you have a Hot Spot on your floor. This is a good indication of a slab leak on the hot water line.
2. Do you have a high water bill? Slab leaks can cause the water bills to soar. A 1/8 inch hole in a metal pipe @ 40 PSI can leak as much as 2500 gallons in 24 hrs.
3. Do you hear water running? Slab Leaks sometimes can be heard in the pipes.
4. Have a wet spot? Slab leaks sometimes surface through the floor or outside the slab in the yard, but not necessarily where the water is seen.
5. Have discoloration of flooring? Sometimes discoloration is a sign of a slab leak.
6. Water Meter turning? If your meter is turning it is possible it is a slab leak or the toilets could be leaking through the flapper. Try the test again after shutting off the toilets and making sure nothing is leaking or running anywhere in the water pressure system.

Does Insurance Cover a Slab Leak?
Most insurance companies cover the cost to tear out and replace concrete, floor covering, walls, cabinets, and whatever is necessary to make the actual repair on the leaking pipe. The repair of the pipe is not usually covered by insurance. It is nice to find that your property is partially or completely covered by your homeowner’s insurance for slab leaks. Check with your insurance company to see if it is covered, or if it is something that you can add to your coverage. If it is not covered by your insurance company, our prices are very reasonable. It is our goal to be your friend before and after each job.
If you have a smell like rotten eggs in your house, or if you can hear a noise that sounds like water running, you may need our Leak Detection service. If it is on a drain line under the slab, roots can eventually get into the pipes and cause your drain line to break apart even more compounding the problem and possibly causing your house to settle.
