    What factors affect the cost of a slab leak repair?

    • Detecting the leak: Slab leaks are notoriously difficult to track down, especially if they’re on the drainage side of a home’s foundation. Leaks that are more challenging to find tend to increase the cost of repair. The good news is the plumbers at Golden Rule are equipped with the latest acoustic leak detection equipment to help spot leaks faster, which in turn saves our customers money on each repair.
    • Accessing the leak: Accessing the leak poses its challenges. Because slab leaks are located beneath a home’s foundation, they can be difficult to reach. Cutting into the foundation itself to reach the pipe is one solution, but it’s not always the best one as it can cost quite a bit. Luckily there are other methods, such as rerouting the plumbing away from the damaged pipe into new replacement piping.
    • Extent of the damage: In most cases, a slab leak is isolated to a single pipe. So, it’s a matter of replacing or rerouting that one section of the pipeline. If, however, the damage has extended beyond just one pipe, that may mean a whole home re-piping is necessary. This doesn’t happen often, but it tends to occur more frequently in homes with aging pipes, homes with piping that wasn’t installed properly, or in homes where the leak has had time to cause more widespread damage.

    Slab Leak Repair FAQ

    Has your water pressure decreased lately? Do you hear the sound of running water? Do you have small cracks on your slab foundation? There are plenty of signs that you could need slab leak repair, and they all should be taken seriously.

    You may need slab leak repair service if you notice:
    • Decreased water pressure: Decreased water pressure is a more or less sure sign that there is a problem with the water supply pipes. Whether that indicates a slab leak must be left to a professional to figure out. It could also be a hidden leak in the home somewhere.
    • Cracks in the foundation: This should be cause for concern for any homeowner, and it could indicate that you have a serious leak under your slab that is causing the ground to shift under the very foundation of your home.
    • Water pooling: When you have a slab leak, water accumulates until it finds a crack to escape through. If you notice water pooling around the foundation of your home, you may have a slab leak.
