One of the most effective ways to repair a slab leak is through tunneling. This technique is one of the specialized services that S3 offers, which sets us apart from other plumbing companies.
So, what exactly is tunneling? It involves excavating a small area of soil, typically at the edge of the foundation, to create a tunnel to access the affected area under the slab. This way, our skilled technicians can repair the leak without affecting the structure of your home or causing significant damage to your landscaping.
The tunnel is generally only about three feet wide and can easily be filled back in once the repair is complete, leaving your yard looking as good as new. This means you won’t have to worry about unsightly trenches or a long and drawn-out repair process.
Under Slab Plumbing
Under slab tunneling is an effective method used for repairing slab leaks when traditional methods such as jackhammering and excavation are not feasible. It involves drilling a small access hole in the slab and tunneling underneath to access the damaged pipes.
One of the main advantages of under slab tunneling is that it minimizes the disruption to your property. Unlike traditional methods, you don’t have to worry about damage to your floors, walls, or landscaping. Additionally, because the tunneling can be done at a shallow depth, it can be completed quickly and efficiently.
But how does under slab tunneling work? Well, it starts with a thorough assessment of your plumbing system. Once the location of the leak has been identified, our experienced technicians will drill a small access hole through the concrete slab. From there, they will use specialized equipment to tunnel underneath to reach the damaged pipes.
While it may sound complicated, the process is actually quite simple and straightforward. Our team of experts has the skills and expertise necessary to complete the job quickly and with minimal disruption to your daily routine.
