Are you worried about the effects of expansive clay soil in Arizona?

Arizona's soil makeup can cause unwarranted pressure on plumbing, leading to possible leaks under or in the slab.

In this article, we will discuss what causes leaks under slabs in Arizona, how you can identify a slab leak, how to permanently stop leaks from occurring under the slab, and how much they cost to repair.

What Causes Leaks Under Slabs in Arizona?

Slab leaks in Arizona are often caused by the region's unique geological and environmental conditions.

Expansive clay soils, prevalent in Arizona, tend to expand and contract with changes in moisture levels. This movement puts stress on underground plumbing systems, potentially leading to fractures.

The local water supply, characterized by high mineral content (aka Hard water), can accelerate the corrosion of pipes. This is particularly concerning for copper piping, commonly used in Arizona homes, which can result in pinhole leaks.

These combined factors make it essential to closely monitor and maintain plumbing systems in Arizona to prevent leaks under slabs.

How Can I Identify a Slab Leak in My Arizona Home?

Identifying a leak under the slab in your Arizona home involves paying attention to specific signs:

  • Unexplained increases in water bills: Leaks may lead to continuous water loss, which can be a sign of a hidden leak underneath a slab foundation.
  • Warped or discolored flooring: Particularly in areas where the plumbing runs beneath the slab, this could indicate water damage. Hot spots on the floor may suggest a leak in a hot water line.
  • a damaged floor caused by a slab leak.

  • The sound of running water: This is especially important when no appliances are in use, as it can be a potential indicator of water running underneath slabs.
  • Low water pressure: A leak under the slab can cause a sudden drop in water pressure or other water pressure problems.

If you notice any of these signs, there is a high chance you may have a leak under your slab. For a more detailed and thorough list, you can read our article on the warning signs of leaks under slab.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Slab Leak in Arizona?

The costs associated with repairing a slab leak in Arizona can vary greatly depending on how you decide to repair the leak. Here at Repipe Specialists, we specialize in full home repipes. In fact, it's all we do.

Our complete repipes typically range from $4,500 to $15,000, depending on the size and complexity of the home.

How Do I Stop Leaks Under Slab in Arizona?

There are two types of slab leak repair to consider to stop leaks under slab in Arizona:

  1. In-slab repair: This requires opening large (and often multiple) portions of a slab with a jackhammer and then relaying concrete in the middle of your home.
  2. Complete repipe: Here at Repipe Specialists, our repipes do not require cutting into the concrete slab. Instead, we cap off the fresh water lines that are already in or under your slab, leaving them in place. Then, we route all your new plumbing through walls, ceilings, and attics, completely bypassing the slab and preventing future slab leaks. After the repipe, you won't have any fresh water plumbing running through your slab, making it a permanent solution for avoiding future leaks under the slab in Arizona.

We consider an in-slab repair a "temporary" solution because whatever caused the slab leak initially has a high likelihood of occurring again in another part of the slab.

A complete repipe might sound like a more expensive option compared to a single in-slab repair; however, we always suggest a full home repipe as the best option. We often find that customers have received quotes to replace sections of leaky pipes in slabs that far exceed the cost of our complete repipe quotes.
