Many homes in Arkansas are built on a large slab of concrete that supports the foundation and the rest of the home. The water line running from the street connects to copper or steel pipes that run under the slab. There are a number of different causes for slab leaks. Once the pipes start leaking it can cause extensive and expensive damage to your home’s foundation
Slab Leak Repair
There are a couple different ways to fix a slab leak. One way is to find the leak and jackhammer out a section of the slab. Our plumbing specialists will then replace the section of pipe and fill in the hole in the slab.
The second method involves bypassing the copper pipes under your home all together. With this method, we would install new piping that goes around your home so that there’s chance of leak damaging your slab.

Causes of Slab Leaks
There are a variety of things that can cause slab leaks, but here are some of the most common. They all have to do with damage caused to the water pipes that run under your slab.
Over time, your pipes can start to get clogged from mineral deposits. This can cause the pressure to increase and burst the pipes.
Rust is a common problem for metal pipes. This can cause the water to smell bad and to turn a brown color.
Dents or kinks
During construction, the pipes can suffer small dents. Even these small dents can wear down and cause a pinhole leak under your home.
