What is a slab leak?
A slab leak occurs underneath the concrete foundation of a home or building and because they can go unnoticed for quite some time you could be faced with a series of problems. Slab leaks can cause severe floodwater damage to your home or commercial property both inside and out. They are also terrible for your piping system, which may only lead to more severe complications. Lastly, any type of leak can promote the growth of mold and bacteria, which can lead to a number of health problems if it is not taken care of.
What causes them?
Let’s hope that the plumber who installed your pipes knew what they were doing, because even the slightest error could cause the system to breakdown and end up causing a slab leak. Assuming that they were installed correctly there are other causes that could lead to this very same problem. When pipes vibrate they have a tendency to rub up against other materials, which could cause them to rupture. When your pipes are under tremendous pressure it could also lead to trouble. An unpredictable shift in the earth or even chemicals in your soil can affect the integrity of your piping system and eventually lead to a slab leak.
What are some signs that you have one?
- Higher utility bills: When your water bills begin to climb and there have been no alterations in your daily patterns it could indicate the presence of a slab leak.
- Running water: You may begin to hear the sound of running water throughout your home or commercial property even when no faucets are in use.
- Hot and cold: In some areas of your home or building you may notice that the floors are especially hot and in other areas too cold.
- Mildew growth: If you start to notice an excessive amount of mildew around your property take this as a sign to call in our licensed plumbers for service.
How do professionals solve the problem?
Based on the severity of the slab leak is what will determine what method we use to solve the problem. For smaller leaks we can apply an epoxy coating to avoid unneeded excavation. In some case we will have to perform spot repair, where the slab is opened up and repairs are applied right at the location of the leak. Lastly, for aging pipes we always recommend replacement, that way you can be sure that this problem will not occur again.
