Pipe Leak Repair Options For Your Glendale Home Or Business

Posted on March 24, 2013 at 4:30 PM Comments comments (1)

A traditional pipe leak repair option is a direct spot repair, where we will use traditional methods to access a leak in a pipe. If the pipe is above ground, the building structure is cut away and the leaking segment is replaced.  If the leak is under concrete slab, direct repair requires jack hammering to access the leak. The other traditional option is repiping of the entire system. A repipe often requires re-routing of pipe. Call our experienced, competent, well-trained Pipe leak repair plumbers at: (818) 429-9500 they are here in Glendale 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for all your pipe leak repair needs. Please take note of some of the other repair options below:


1. Under Floor Slab Leaks Repair

Often times pipe leaks that are commonly found in San Jose homes and businesses are located under the floor. These leaks can be seen under a slabs or a raised foundations or wooden floors. Slab leaks are mainly found by the aid of leak location techniques and are accessed by “jack hammering” the floor all the way to the exact location of the pipe leak and performing something we call “spot repair”. I would like to add a this time that spot pipe leak repairs can only be considered “permanent” only if a solid mechanic connection can be made. Most times we find pipe that can take a spot repair but the pipe wall is so deteriorated that we can’t guaranty a permanent solution. Here for obvious reasons we always recommend a copper repipe.  For Under floor slab leak repairs call us today
