Here is what you need to know about our under slab sewer leak repair services:

How We Access an Under Slab Sewer Leak

When we recommend sewer pipe line replacement it is because the damaged pipe, under the house, can ultimately cause structural damage and foundation issues. We advise replacing the pipe by rerouting if:

  • It is a cast iron pipe – these pipes deteriorate over time and can cause countless issues with your home’s foundation because under slab leaks are sometimes hard to detect right away by the homeowner.
  • If the pipe has had leaks in the past, or has the potential to have additional leaks and other issues in the future.

A Detailed Post Repair Assessment

Once our team has identified the issue and rerouted the pipe, we will test the system to be certain that there are no other leaks. This assessment is essential in making sure that the sewer pipe line repair has been accomplished effectively.

An Interior Excavation

We advise clients to consult us before scheduling any of our sewer repair services. At times, we may need to perform an interior exaction through the concrete slab or the wall. In such cases, keep in mind that In-House Plumbing Company will not be responsible for reinstating your flooring or wallboards. In such cases, you may incur additional costs for additional work we need access to all areas around the house and inside the house.

Considering Spot Repair and Leak Isolation

Take note that our plumbing company doesn’t recommend spot repair or leak isolation on cast iron pipes. We have noticed major issues with cast iron pipes in various under-slab areas. Any repairs done on these pipes will need to be abandoned or redone at some point, and you may need to replace sewer line in the future. As a result, we’ve decided not to spot or locate cast iron pipe systems.

If you have any concerns or questions about your under slab leak repair, we would be willing to help you make the best and right decision. We also provide cast iron pipe replacement services and a host of other solutions! Reach out to us today and have your under slab sewer system repaired.
