Hot Water Slab Leak
Here’s a review from a client who had a particularly difficult hot water slab leak: “We had some serious water leaks under our slab house foundation. Moreover, we had another leak detector service and two plumbing companies fail to find our issue before we called Brandt. Brandt conducted a thorough evaluation of our situation and was excellent at communicating with us. I really appreciated that he made us a part of the entire process, showing us what he was doing and why. This raised my trust significantly. He gave us tips throughout the process, helped me map out our water pipes for future use, finished the job on time and on budget. Oh, and he marked our leak within two inches. Then, he referred us to a plumber that was top notch to perform the needed repair. Our water trouble is resolved and we could not be happier with the service that Brandt provided.” – T.Lees, Centerville, OHThe hot water slab leak location is indicated by the yellow area in the upper (infrared) picture. I always attempt to use three to four methods of “proving” a leak, which allows for more accurate detection. If you only use listening or infrared optics, it is real easy to wind up locating a point in the line where the concrete slab has been over-poured and is touching the pipe, creating a false heat reading as well as sound peak!
