Slab Leak Repair

A leak in the slab of a home can lead to costly repairs, especially if they are left unattended. But when a slab leak is caught early, the cost and time of repair could be minimal. Because a slab leak involves the foundation of a home, it is nothing to take lightly. Vines Plumbing has the resources, equipment and experience to conduct all types of slab leak repair in Myrtle Beach, SC. It is not uncommon for homes to experience a slab leak as there are a number of reasons this can occur. Here is a look at some of the reasons your home may incur a slab leak: 

  • Bad pipes – When the quality of piping is low, it heightens the possibility of a slab leak. This is also a result of poor construction. Metal pipes have a tendency to rust and wear down more so than copper pipes.
  • Poor pipe wrapping – The flow of water causes pipes to both expand and contract. This requires an additional layer of wrapping to protect from leaks. Old or low-quality wrapping can fail to protect a home from a slab leak.
  • Shifting ground – Over the course of time, the ground beneath your home may shift. The weight of a home, combined with that shifting, can create leaks and cracks.
  • Water pH – Water pressure is not the only factor when it comes to leaks. Water with a high pH level has traces of minerals that can corrode pipes. Over time, that wears pipes down and can lead to leaks.

professional Technicians Knowledgeable of all options

There are several ways to attend to slab repair and Vines Plumbing will implement the most optimal method for your slab. Many problems can be fixed with spot repairs which are generally lest costly. This involves opening the slap and making the repair where it is needed. Applying epoxy coating is another inexpensive repair which is usually reserved for small leaks.

Other options are a bit more involved and that includes re-piping. When there is more than one leak or the pipes are old and worn, re-piping is an excellent solution for the long term. This can also upgrade water flow through your pipes. In more severe cases, rerouting the pipes is a repair method which involves complete demolition of the slab.

The technicians at Vines Plumbing will analyze the severity of your slab leak and offer repair options that will eliminate the problem and keep your water supply running efficiently.

Then helped me with miscellaneous things inside like a clogged sink, quoted me on replacing some faucets, installed a new shower head. 5 star first class gentlemen, experts in their field. Will be using their help again.

Nothing but good to say about these guys. Gary came out on a Saturday, was super helpful, communicative and informative. Even with having to run to get parts he managed to have my water up and running within 2 hours. Candy, the dispatch lady was also super helpful and accommodating from the second I called and managed to help me work around my schedule even though it was a weekend. Price was fair for an emergency call on a weekend and the work was well worth it, plus a year warranty to guarantee it. Writing this stellar review from my toilet which I can now flush thanks to Gary.
