Slab Leaks in Chula Vista
Chula Vista is Spanish for “beautiful view,” and rightly so. Sitting between the San Diego Bay and the San Ysidro Mountains, the city’s population has been growing fast, putting some pressure on the water system.
One common plumbing issue in Chula Vista homes is the slab leak. Slab leaks occur when cracks develop in pipes beneath concrete floors, on the bottom of driveways or underneath decks/balconies.
Slab leaks are mostly caused by disintegration. Any pipe must balance the pressure between soil and concrete on the outside and water pressure on the inside. Excessive soil dryness, earthquakes, root intrusion and construction can cause pipe leaks. Leaks also occur due to faulty installation practices, or external human force that occurs when changing pipelines.

Slab Leaks Are Often Easy Repairs
Before we start the repair process, we will first consult with you about the various methods that we utilize, and suggest only that to suit your situation. Only you can decide whether you want a patch job to get you to the next year when you’ll have more income or prefer to apply the method that will most add to the value of your home.
The epoxy coating involved in Chula Vista’s best trenchless pipe re-lining is the most convenient, cost-effective method for a number of leaks. Our professionals first remove any blockages from tree roots and typical home usage. Then we coat the steel pipes using an epoxy-based liner, creating a pipe within a pipe. This powerful liner prevents future cracks and even intrusion from tree roots (no seams or joints for roots to invade.)
- Changing out the pipeline
Another method is changing the whole pipeline, and substituting it with new copper, PVC or PEX materials. This is the most recommended method by insurance companies.
- Reroute the pipes
For older pipes, we recommend changing the routing. Our expert team handles the whole situation with great care causing no destruction to your house.
