What is a Slab Leak?
The term slab leak is plumbing industry jargon for leaks that occur in water pipes within the concrete foundation of a building. Technically, a slab leak is any leak in a pipe within a hard rock surface, but the issue is usually in the concrete foundation for residential plumbing.
Slab leaks are a major problem. Not only do they waste water, but they create spikes in pressure that can damage the basement floor. Hot water leaks will also drain energy since they will make the water heater perform unnecessary work. If you believe slab leaks are in your home, you must have them repaired immediately.
Signs You Have a Slab Leak
This leads to an important question: How can I know I have a slab leak if it’s happening out of sight under concrete?
Thankfully, slab leaks create several warning signs you can watch for, including:
- An unexpected cost increase in your water bills or unexplained water usage
- Bizarre behavior from the water heater, such as turning on at unexpected times
- Signs of cracking across the floor of the basement
- An unusual increase in humidity in the basement
- The development of molds and mildews in the lower parts of your home
- The sound of running water in the basement when no tap is turned on
If you feel at all uncertain, contact a professional plumber to detect if you have slab leaks.
It should be clear why you cannot perform a slab leak repair as a DIY project or call on an amateur for the work—even finding the exact location of a slab leak requires advanced technology, such as listening discs and pressure scanners. After locating the leak takes excavation work or lateral digging to insert bypass piping to fix it. Only professionals with special training and experience can provide this service for you and do it right.
