Any plumbing leak is inconvenient—there’s no denying that, right? But a slab leak is particularly formidable. What makes this type of leak so much worse?
It’s not the leak itself—the actual leak might be coming from a very small pinhole in a pipe. It’s the damage that occurs because of the leak that’s the problem. A slab leak is one that exists beneath the concrete foundation (the slab) of your home. The problem is that it’s literally hidden from view, so it could take months for you to even realize you have one—when it’s already done loads of damage beneath your home. This damage can include a cracked foundation, mold growth, dry rot of your flooring and drywall, and more.
Fortunately, there’s a bit of good news. There are actually some signs you can watch out for that indicate you have this type of leak. If you detect any of these symptoms, give us a call right away so we can accurately detect and locate the leak, then fix it for you!
