The Main Causes Of Slab Leaks

April 28, 2023 | Blog

We’re all familiar with how costly leaks in our homes can be, but not every leak is as visible as a dripping faucet or shower head. Slab leaks occur when the pipes leak under your foundation – the concrete slab your home sits on. They’re very common, especially in older homes, and can vary from a light trickle to a heavier flow depending on the size of the crack in the broken pipe.

As a homeowner, it’s important to familiarize yourself with your home’s foundation and how slab leaks occur. Keep reading for more information about slab leaks and how we fight against them at Hi-Tech Plumbing and Leak Detect!

What Triggers A Slab Leak?

Leaks can happen for various reasons, but most of them stem from your pipes’ positioning or water quality. If you have older pipelines or your system was installed incorrectly, it will wear down over time. Similarly, if your water’s pH levels are too acidic or alkaline, your pipes can corrode from the inside out.

Signs You Have A Slab Leak

Most homeowners experiencing a slab leak don’t even know about it until it’s too late. If there’s mold growing under your flooring, damp sections of carpet that never seem to dry or your water heater is constantly running, you may be dealing with a slab leak!

While they may be hard to pinpoint, slab leaks are a serious concern. We want to educate our clients about taking care of their homes and preventing severe damage. Here are a few other warning signs that you may have a slab leak:

  • You can hear water running even when the water is off
  • There are soggy spots near your home’s foundation
  • Your water bills are unreasonably high
  • There’s less water pressure when you shower
  • Your hardwood floors feel weak

If you’re struggling with any of these issues, our team is here to help! Reach out to Hi-Tech today to schedule your appointment and say goodbye to that costly slab leak.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I Highly Recommend This Company!

I know about this company because my neighbors needed plumbing repair but of course the problem was located in my backyard. Blaine and Joe were fabulous! They did their very best to put my yard back as it was and to make sure my fence was secured so my dogs wouldn’t escape. And they were really kind and understanding of the situation. I highly recommend this company!

Professional and Friendly

I have had Hi-Tech repair two hot water slab leaks in my home this year. Both times they were prompt in scheduling the initial inspection and the actual repair, clear on the costs of the project, and what all work would be done. And on top of that, everyone has been very professional and friendly. I would 100% recommend them for any plumbing project you may have!
