Little Elm’s Frequently Asked Questions: Slab Leak Detection, Repair, Testing, And More

With over 50 years of experience, Earl’s Plumbing knows a thing or two about slab leaks. From detection and repair to testing and more, we’re here to answer your most common questions and prepare you for what to expect when you call.

An endorsement for slab leak and foundation water damage. At under $80 annually, it’s surprisingly affordable and could save you tens of thousands on repairs.

To find out if you have coverage, what you need to ask your insurance company before you have any foundation or structural-related issues is: “Does my homeowner’s insurance policy have the required endorsement for coverage of slab and foundation-related damages caused by water leaks from both water lines and sewer breaks?”

About 35-40% of the homeowners that we work for do not have this important policy endorsement. This could cover tens of thousands of dollars in excavation or what they call “access work.” Interior home damage to flooring or furnishings may be covered by your regular homeowner’s policy. But it does not cover the “access to” or “the repair of” the broken pipe, water line, or sewer line.

While repairs can range from $5,000 to $12,000, it’s important to remember this cost only covers the plumbing work itself. This is why having the right insurance coverage is crucial because without an endorsement for a slab leak, you might be responsible for the entire bill. We encourage you not to wait until a leak appears to address your coverage.

  • Soaring Water Bill: Unexplained spikes in your water usage are a red flag.
  • Warm Floors: Feel an unusually warm spot? It might be a hot water line leak heating the floor.
  • Mysterious Water Sounds: Faint trickling, hissing, or spraying noises could indicate a hidden leak.
  • Running Water Meter: A leak is likely if the meter moves even when no water is flowing.

Don’t wait for water to erupt from your floor to take action. These signs can help you identify a potential slab leak and take action before it becomes a major problem.

Often the culprit is aging pipes, shifting soil, or even normal wear and tear. The scary part is that these leaks can go undetected for a while, leading to water damage and higher water bills.

The good news is that Earl’s Plumbing stands ready to help! Don’t wait for damp carpets or a shocking water bill if you suspect a leak. Contact us for a professional inspection.

  • Keen Eyes: We start with a thorough inspection, searching for water stains or dampness around accessible areas.
  • Listening In: Specialized microphones placed on the slab become our eats, detecting the telltale sounds of water movement.
  • Thermal Vision: Infrared cameras reveal hidden leaks by identifying temperature variations in the slab.
  • Pressure Check: We isolate sections of your plumbing and pressurize them. A drop in pressure indicates a potential leak.
  • Precision Access (If Needed): In rare cases, we may use pinpoint drilling to directly access pipes for further examination.
  • Main Shut-Off: Every home has this valve, typically near the street, in a flower bed box, garage, utility room, or water manifold closet.
  • Irrigation Double-Check: Look for a green, rectangular valve box (around 12” x 17”) near the street or water meter. This valve is crucial for isolating the irrigation system from the main water supply during testing.
  • Water Heater: Locate the valve that controls water flow to your heater. If it’s an older multi-turn gate valve, it might not fully shut off water flow.
  • Toilet Supply: This valve, often called an “angle stop,” should be in good working order to prevent leaks and allow isolation during testing. If your toilet runs continuously and the shut-off valve doesn’t work, the valve and toilet parts might need replacement.
  • Hose Spigot or Hose Bib: Make sure all outdoor hose spigots are free of leaks or drips, both when turned on and off. We need at least one functioning hose bib to connect pressure gauges to the water supply system.

First, we isolate the problem by strategically shutting off sections of your water supply, narrowing down the potential leak zone. Next, we do what is called a Multiple System Pressure Test. Meaning, that with each isolated section we perform a pressure test which shows us that a pressure drop is a sign of a potential leak in that specific area.

The above approach helps us locate the leak efficiently while minimizing disruption to your home. Once we’ve found the culprit, our team uses advanced tools for precise leak pinpointing.

This is called a “points test.” Once the points have been identified, a frequency transmitter is attached to the water lines. It produces a specific frequency that another locator device senses and detects. The readings allow us to create a “blue tape map” of the water lines on the floors.

Our time-tested repair processes are the only methods that definitively address and permanently resolve slab leaks.

In order of commonality and prevalence, these are:

  • Tunnel excavation to the point of leak
  • Concrete slab penetration and excavation
  • Water line reroute

Little Elm, Texas, Loves Earl’s Slab Leak Plumbers

“I’m typically very hesitant to call any plumbing company to inquire about services, but when I reached out to Earl’s Plumbing, the experience was extremely positive from the start. I spoke to Brant (I believe he is a manager) who was very knowledgeable, honest and was willing to have someone come out within just a couple of hours of me calling to look into the issue at my home. A few minutes before the plumber arrived, I received a text with information on the name of the plumber (with his picture) and a little info on his experience. That was a very cool touch. TJ was the plumber assigned for the job, and he was AWESOME! He was very outgoing, personable and knowledgeable. He was able to get the job done quickly and efficiently while also explaining (thoroughly) his findings. It was a great experience all around. I would definitely recommend Earl’s Plumbing to anyone and will give them a call if I ever need plumbing services in the future”


“On Time, friendly, informative, professional! What more can you ask for? On top of that, the Price was as quoted. No one tried to up-sale me and there was a follow up call a few days later, to check if everything was OK. A great experience all around. I will definitely call Earl’s Plumbing again when I need a Plumber!”

Rudi H.

“Great experience with Earl’s plumbing. They were quick to respond and repair a leaking water heater copper line. Very professional and left me feeling I was valued as a customer.
