Bill Howe Plumbing slab leak experts share first hand what
customers ask most often when they’re dealing with a slab leak.
I started with Bill Howe Plumbing about 11 years ago and I’ve focused on slab leak location and repair for the past seven years.
Most slab leaks happen because of the age of the homes. On average, homes that are 25 years old or older are more likely to have a slab leak than newer homes. I tend to get called out to the older areas of San Diego most often..
I get this question more than any other: it really all depends on your insurance company and the type of coverage you have. But in my experience, insurance companies typically cover the cost of the slab leak location (service to accurately identify where pipe under slab is leaking) and the cost to repair any damage the leak may have caused (in most cases, repair to drywall and/or flooring). Since I do this so often, I am used to working with the insurance companies to get them all of the information they need in order to determine what they can cover. Customers like that we can take care of the leak right away and work with the insurance company while we’re doing it to take that burden off of their shoulders.
Although there are some signs of slab leaks like hot spots on your floor, low water pressure, and high water bills, with our electronic slab leak detection service, we have the ability to precisely locate slab leaks in copper pipes. More often than not, Bill Howe Plumbing can repair the problem directly at the source with a minimal amount of intrusion and inconvenience. In most cases, our slab leak repair San Diego technicians will recommend a re-pipe or bypass of the leaking pipe, however, there are many instances where a ”direct repair” in the ground becomes the best and least expensive alternative.

Angie’s List Review by University City Customer
Dana did a comprehensive overhaul of my plumbing after a devastating flood. I was very impressed with Bill Howe’s professionalism as a company and Dana’s skill and integrity. For the first time a plumber listened to what I wanted done and if any one of the previous had listened to me, like Dana did, I would probably not have had the flood in the first place.
Yelp Review by Gary S.
Under slab cold water line leak. Went with Bill Howe because I wanted to be sure and get someone with the right experience and right equipment to detect such leaks and repair. Luis Mascareno came in with the requisite equipment and located the leak and determined that a bypass was in order rather than tearing up the concrete floor. It was great to stop camping in my own house (turning the water on at the street for a few minutes at a time for toilet flushing and showering). I appreciated how Luis kept me apprised of what he was doing as he did it.
