What Exactly Is A Slab Leak?
A slab leak is a leak that has developed in your water lines that run below the concrete foundation of your property. These types of leaks are notorious for the damage they can cause which is why repairing them quickly is so important. If left undetected, these leaks can cause extensive damage to your property and may even cause your foundation to collapse.
Signs You Have A Slab Leak
Because fast repairs are essential with slab leaks, it is important to know what signs to look out for. Here are some of the most common symptoms:
- Unusually high water bills
- Hearing running water when not using pipes
- Mold or mildew growing on your floors
- Your water meter indicates you have a leak
- Stagnant water around your property
- Cracks in walls, floor, or ceiling
What Causes Slab Leaks?
Common slab leak causes are not too different than typical leaks in your plumbing system. Oftentimes they are due to one of the following. Corrosion – overtime, your pipes will naturally be weakened by natural causes. Underground soil with a high acidity will cause corrosion and make your pipes more susceptible to cracks. Foundational shifts – sometimes a slab leak is due to foundational or ground shifts. The pressure created by these shifts can be too much for pipelines and will cause leaks.
