Slab Leak Repair and Leak Detection
When it comes to your slab repair, we are always more competitive than the larger plumbing companies.
Our plumbing specialists utilize the newest technology to pinpoint your leak expediently and accurately. Once we identified the location and scope of the leak, we will advise you on the best solution; whether it is repairing the leak in the slab or bypassing the leak. Depending on the severity, our technicians may recommend a reroute or repipe (see Repipes).
Common Slab Leak Questions to Ask Yourself

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions – you may have a slab leak. But don’t worry, Prime Plumbing has the experience to help you detect and fix the slab leak!
What are Slab Leaks?
Slab leaks are those that occur under your foundation. Often these show up as a damp area on your floor, carpet, or foundation. Prime Plumbing can identify and find leaks under the slab and fix them so that foundation repairs are not needed, often saving you thousands in dollars that foundation repairs can bring.

Turn all water-using appliances off. Turn off all showers, sinks, washing machines, sprinklers, and water spigots. Shut off any double check valve assemblies (DCVA) for the sprinkler system.
Check your water meter. The triangular red or silver and black disc is often called a “leak indicator.”
If you see it spinning, and you’ve shut off all water usage, you probably have a leak.
Shut off your main shut-off valve to your house, usually located near the meter box.
