As a homeowner it is more than upsetting to say the least. The homes in Ladera Ranch aren't very old at all. You would never expect that your beautiful new home would spring a copper pipe leak or slab leak in just a few short years of taking ownership.
Even if you haven't experienced a slab leak yet, the numbers are not in your favor. These homes were built in mass. That means that the copper pipe used in your home is most certainly the same as the 7 families in your neighborhood who have already experienced at least 1 copper pipe rupture, pinhole leak or slab leak needing repair.
To put you at ease, it you have a slab leak which simply means that the copper pipe has begun leaking under your concrete foudation, it does not mean someone needs to come into your home with a jack-hammer and dig a hole through your beautiful wood floors. Just put that nightmare scenario out of your head.
To start with you need a qualifed slab leak detection service like Leak Star. There are multiple copper water lines running under your concrete foundation slab. It is important that the one doing your leak detection is knowledgable. While it's not rocket science it is important that the technician have a solid background in plumbing from the ground up. Leak Star is a family owned business going back decades with a stellar reputation throught Orange County and San Diego.
Once the slab leak is located and the offending copper pipe has been narrowed down, the slab leak repair can begin. In most cases it should take no longer than one day. Usually there is not even a need to leave your home. Leak Star uses equipment to contain dust as much as possible. If you have sustained water damage or possibly mold, barriers will be erected and powerful air purifers brought in.
The cost is always a homeowner's concern. The cost of slab leak detection varies between $150-250. The national average average for a single line slab leak repair is $2000.
