How We Fix Slab Leaks
There are a few ways the pros at Liberty Plumbing repair slab leaks in your home or business. Which method we choose for you depends on the type of leak and its location.

- Pipe relining – This option uses a special epoxy to form brand new pipes inside your existing pipes to stop any leaks and prevent future damage. This is the most cost effective method, as there’s no digging involved and we can utilize your existing pipes.
- Repiping – We replace your entire plumbing system. This is often the best choice for older homes. There’s no jack hammering through your concrete because the new pipes are rerouted around the outside edge of your home’s slab foundation.
