Fixing a leak under a massive sheet of concrete can be challenging. When the leak is near the edge of the foundation, it is often possible to dig under the concrete to expose the leak and make the repair. In other cases, it is not possible to dig to the leak. Instead, it is more cost-effective to abandon the leaking pipe and install a replacement pipe in the wall, floor, or crawl space of the home.
As a last resort, it is possible to cut a small hole in the foundation to expose the leaking pipe and make the repair. After the leak is eliminated, our licensed plumber will pressure test the line to be sure that the repair is sound and that there are no other leaks in the pipe. Once the pipe’s integrity is proven, the hole in the foundation can be patched.
