According to the Copper Development Association, 95% of existing homes in the United States utilize copper pipes, with 80% of new construction still using this technology. And, in most cases, copper pipes can last 50 to 75 years underground without any issues. However, certain soil conditions can cause copper pipes to corrode and fail. Soil conditions that quite possibly exist in our area can cause unseen (and expensive) damage to our copper pipe plumbing systems. Affordable Service’s technicians are well-versed in the science behind copper pipe failures, enabling them to address the root cause of the issue during repairs.

Copper pipe failures can cause extensive damage and deliver costly repair bills especially if those failures are underneath your home’s concrete slab. These leaks are not only tricky to detect but can wreak havoc on your property. At Affordable Service in Rio Rancho, we understand the complexity of these situations and offer cutting-edge solutions to “unearth” and repair the source of the problem.

The Challenge of Leaks Under Concrete Slabs: Identifying plumbing leaks concealed beneath concrete slabs poses a unique set of challenges. Homeowners often notice a spike in water bills or unexplained dampness, but locating the exact source can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. The traditional approach involves extensive digging and more digging, resulting in a messy and expensive process that disrupts daily life.

Underground Water Leak Detection: Affordable Service leverages state-of-the-art technology for precise and efficient leak detection. Our advanced underground water leak detection listening tools enable us to pinpoint the exact location of the leak without resorting to more intrusive measures. This technology helps minimize the guesswork, allowing us to identify the issue quickly and accurately, saving you tons of money.

Thermal Camera Precision: To further refine our search for your underground leak, Affordable Services utilizes thermal imaging cameras. This technology works by detecting heat signature energy, measuring the infrared radiation emitted from your water leak. This provides visual confirmation of the leak’s location. Once the leak is located, Affordable Service’s technicians can tunnel under your slab and repair the leak, quickly and efficiently.
