Slab Leak Detection
Slab leaks can be caused by a number of different things, including rust or corrosion in the pipes or shifts in the ground or foundation. While precise slab leak detection should be left to our plumbing professionals, there are several warning signs that you, as a homeowner, can look for to determine if a slab leak is occuring in your foundation:
- Little water pressure inside the house
- Random warm or cool places on your floor
- The sound of running water, but no determinable source
- Sudden cracks in your ceiling or walls
- Sudden growth of mold or mildew
- Sudden increase in your water bill for no apparent reason
Once slab leak detection has been completed, it is time to repair it. What this requires depends on the cause of the leak, how big it is and if there are multiple leak locations. Some common methods of repairing these leaks include installing brand new pipes, rerouting the flow of water to a new pipe installed above ground and inserting a new liner into the old pipes to cover the leaks.
