What Is a Slab Leak?
Slab leaks happen to homes built on a concrete slab. These types of constructions have plumbing pipes running through concrete. So, when a pipe leaks, bursts, or gets too corroded, the water from the leak has a few places to go.
A slab leak can cause structural damage, foundation damage, or a wet yard. Unresolved slab leaks can lead to cracked walls or even floors. And in the most extreme cases, parts of the home can entirely collapse.
Signs of a Slab Leak
Slab leaks can show many symptoms, but in truth, many of the symptoms can indicate other likely causes. Be on the lookout for the following home foundation leak warnings:
- Unusually high water bills
- Your floor feels warm
- Low water pressure
- Puddles in or outside your home
- Damp carpet or flooring
- The sound of running water when pipes aren’t in use
- Mouldy smell/mould problems
- Cracks in your baseboard or walls
If you notice any of these signs, contact us as soon as possible. Our licensed and experienced plumbers have the credentials and proper equipment to diagnose the issue and recommend a sustainable solution.
