Slab Leak Repair

Pinhole leaks can be a major headache, call the Professionals.

Slab Leak Repair

A slab leak (or foundation leak) is the plumbing industry term for a small hole that has developed in a copper water line below the concrete slab of your home. At Thompson & Thompson, we have over 40 years experience locating and repairing even the most complex slab leaks. Contact the experts for your slab leak repair needs.


Breaking into the slab or foundation of your home without 100% positive confirmation of a leak location is not what we do. Locating a slab leak requires a skilled and licensed plumber with technical expertise.

Locating leaks non-destructively requires the use of modern tools such as electronic amplification equipment and electromagnetic pipeline locators. With the proper equipment, leaks can be found and repaired with minimal disruption to your property. In many cases, only a single floor tile needs to be removed and replaced. Thompson & Thompson’s highly trained technicians use the most up to date detection equipment to accurately locate the leak to save time and money.


Here are some of the most common slab leak symptoms:

  • Higher water bill than your neighbor
  • The sound of water running with no faucets open
  • Hot spots on the floor
  • Wet baseboards
  • Water on the floor
  • Mildew, mold or excessive moisture under carpets

If you see or hear any of the above, call us immediately. The sooner we address the problem the better.


There are four main causes for slab leaks:

  1. Chemical interaction between the pipes and the water
  2. Foundation shifting
  3. Overly high water pressure
  4. Substandard plumbing with inferior materials


Once we have located the leak using state of the art electronic amplification equipment or gas tracer systems, we can ascertain which option will work best. Leak detection with minimal destruction of the surrounding environment is something we strive for at Savannah Thompson & Thompson. Options for a slab leak repair may include:

Spot Repair

We can open up the slab at the spot of the leak and repair it.


Replace the entire line that was leaking.

My children are going to be embarrassed by the video review but I was so thrilled to have my AC fixed that I didn’t care how awful I looked! Calling on a Friday morning, I was happily surprised that someone could come out the same day. Wendy was very pleasant and helpful on the phone. Mr. Dave is awesome. He knows his business and it shows. He really cares about what he’s doing and taking care of the customer too. Mr. Dave made sure I understood what needed to be done and then he took care of it. I believe in supporting local businesses. If you do too then I encourage you to contact Thompson & Thompson Service Group for your home maintenance and repair needs.
