About Our Vancouver Slab Leak Repair Service

There are some telltale signs that scream the need for slab leak repair in Vancouver, but others are quiet and invisible. That's why the first part of every one of our leak services starts with the use of advanced leak detection equipment.

Slab Leak Detection

The concrete slab your home was built on can be quite large, and pinpointing the exact location of the leak helps us determine where we need to dig to repair it–or if we need to dig at all. To do this, we'll use a combination of leak detection technology, including infrared detection devices and video camera equipment, to identify the type of leak and locate it. Once we find it, our licensed plumbers will know how to deal with what's causing the water loss and recommend one of the following effective solutions.

Pipe Relining

If we can use a trenchless method of slab leak repair in Vancouver, we always will. Pipe relining is a valuable and effective method of pipe repair that will protect your home from plumbing leaks and is completed in a single day. This non-invasive method involves sliding an epoxy-soaked tube down into your affected pipe along with an inflatable inner tube. We'll inflate the tube to press the liner against the sides of the pipe, and when it's cured, pull the tube out. This will leave you with a new, durable pipe lining. This method is only suitable for points of minor damage such as hairline cracks, corrosion, and pinhole leaks.

Pipe Rerouting

If your plumbing issue comes from broken water pipes, we may opt to reroute your water supply line to avoid it. This process will involve excavation as we will need to cut the old pipes and cap them before rerouting the flow of water through another area of your home, such as your walls or ceilings.


If you have severely broken pipes, pipe bursts, or an old plumbing system, we'll recommend a total replacement as your leak solution. Performing repairs may not be possible for burst or collapsed pipes and those with excessive signs of wear that will likely break in the future. Replacing your pipes means we will need to excavate to reach the old ones underneath your concrete slab. We'll remove them before connecting new pipes in their place.

FAQs - Slab Leak Repair in Vancouver

What is a Slab Leak?

A slab leak is one of the most troubling types of leaks for Vancouver homes. With the potential to damage the structure of your home and cause extensive water damage to your floors, neglecting this serious occurrence means you may pay the cost of irreversible damage to your home.

But what exactly is a slab leak, and what causes it? In the building process, most Vancouver homes are constructed on top of a concrete slab for structure and stability. But the ground can shift, corroded pipes or frozen pipes occur, and the plumbing underneath your home can become damaged and crack, requiring an immediate solution. Leaky pipes come in differing levels of severity, but since slab leaks are underground and not under your kitchen sink or coming from your water heater, they're a bit more complicated to resolve and require the help of an experienced plumber.

What Are The Signs I Have a Slab Leak?

Slab leaks show themselves in various formats, and some are more obvious than others. For example, a wet and warped basement floor is an obvious sign of a slab leak, but low water pressure is not. Be on the lookout for the following common signs and get in touch with our professional team at first sight:

  • Water stains on your walls
  • Excess water / wet spots on your floor
  • Decrease in water pressure
  • A puddle of water appears in your basement
  • Higher than normal monthly water bills
  • Higher than normal reading on your water meter
  • Mouldy smells coming from your walls or floor
  • The sound of gushing or trickling water without taps or toilets running
