What is a Slab Leak?

Slab Leaks are pressurized plumbing and pipe leaks which can occur beneath the concrete or slab within your Cerritos house.

These types of leaks can occur either at the hot line or the cold lines.

Slab leaks most often occur within the houses incoming water line, but sometimes are known to take place within sewer lines, but either way our skilled techs can fix the problem.

Both types of leaks can cause large amounts of damage to the foundation.

Rerouting For Slab Leak Repair:

To access the concrete slab requires digging through the concrete with a jack hammer, which of course can be costly and time consuming.

When Rerouting is a good option in Cerritos

When a slab leak repair is not possible or practical, then rerouting the pipes underneath the concrete slab might be best.

Dealing with multiple leaks in a pipe can make the repairs very difficult, and so just rerouting the pipes might be ideal.

How to reroute the pipes

Remember this type of piping job should be left to an experienced professional, like Streamline Plumbing.

It takes years of experience to know the best locations for the new piping, and we are experts in this even though we deal with all sewer and drain or plumbing issues.


Will Homeowners Insurance Cover a Slab Leak?

The short answer is maybe.

If they do cover it in your home inCerritos, there will be some qualifications, and only a claims adjuster for your company can tell you for sure.

You don’t have any backyard insurance, you have homeowners insurance so a leak on your service line outside of the foundation is different.

On the bright side, if that is your actual leak problem, it is likely the least expensive kind of hidden underground leak to repair so call us today and we’ll come out..
