Slab Leak Detection and Repair
Over time, pipes fall victim to rust, corrosion, age and weather. Corrosion occurs when acids found in water produce pits in the pipes. Pits eventually become pinhole size leaks. Unnoticed leaks cause significant damage – discolored water, low water pressure or even bacteria, mildew and mold.
Common Slab Leak Warning Signs
If these leaks occur underground or in concrete slabs, they don't just waste water, they can be devastating to your home or business. Slab leaks cause damage to floors, landscaping and can lead to health issues such as allergies, respiratory even headaches.
If you notice a warm spot on the flooring it may be coming from a leak in the hot water line. If you have linoleum or carpet this may be easy to detect. Tile floors are not as easy, they are not usually noticed until the water flows between the adhesive and the tiles.
If the water leak has gone on for a long time and is severe you may detect warping or a raised 'dome' in the flooring.
If a leak has continued for a significant time under your home's foundation it can swell and even lift the building, this is called heaving. The damage can manifest as cracks in the slab as well as in the exterior and interior walls. The damage can sometimes be irreparable and needs the attention of a professional who knows what to look for.
If you notice a spike in your utility bill without and extra water use, usually an indication of a water leak. If you're not able to locate the source, is in your best interest to invest in a professional leak detection service.
