What Is a Slab Leak?

January 11, 2016 | Blog

Your plumbing system is far more extensive than you may even realize. Your water line brings fresh water into your home, and your pipes distribute that water throughout the house to all of your different appliances and plumbing fixtures. Once you’re done with the water, your drain and sewer system disposes of the waste and wastewater. The residential plumbing system a great modern luxury, but one that can never truly be 100% reliable. There is a lot of room for problems to develop, and a slab leak is one of the most undesirable scenarios you may run into with your plumbing system. 

What Is a Slab Leak?

A slab leak is a leak in a water line that develops beneath the concrete foundation of a home. This location causes a few different complications, when compared to a leak in a more accessible area. First of all, it is harder to detect a slab leak, as you won’t simply see water pooling around a sink or bathtub. We’ll have some tips for recognizing that you have a slab leak below. Secondly, accessing the slab leak in order to repair it poses another problem. It is a job that requires trained, experienced, and properly equipped professionals. The excavation needs to be kept to a minimum in order to limit any damage to the property, so precise detection is a must.

Spotting a Slab Leak

There are a few different warning signs that may alert homeowners to slab leaks on their properties. Keep an eye on your water bill. If you’re using more water than usual,  despite not having changed your usage habits, it may be due to a slab leak. The development of mold in the lowest level of the house could be due to this dampness, and you may even hear the sound of water running when there is none in use.
