How to Tell If You Have a Slab Leak

  • Experiencing an increase in your water bill, caused by constantly running water
  • Smelling mold or mildew, indicating growth under floorboards or carpeting, or in drywall
  • Hearing running or gushing water despite all fixtures and appliances being turned off
  • Uncovering damaged or wet flooring, whether it be damp carpeting or hardwood flooring
  • Finding cracks in walls or flooring, particularly if you notice moisture accompanying them
  • Feeling hot spots on your floor, which would be originating from a leaking hot water line
  • Having reduced water pressure, signaling that water is escaping from a pipe
  • Noticing pooling water either outside or inside your home, which can't be otherwise explained

is involved, make sure you only hire a true and dependable expert!

Slab leaks are fixed in one of two ways, directly accessing the leak from inside the home or digging a pathway underneath the home to access the leak
(or leaks if multiple leaks are suspected). Direct access involves identifying the area of the leak from inside the home and breaking into the concrete
slab to access the plumbing “ usually with a jackhammer. This method is loud, messy and may miss additional leaks (or even create them with the force
of the machinery). Digging or tunneling under the home to the leak or leaks then removing and replacing the leaking sections of pipe is preferable.
In a case of multiple leaks along a pipeline, it may be necessary to re-route the plumbing to a more substantial line of piping.

If you suspect a slab leak under your home, don’t delay! The faster the leak is addressed, the better the chances of minimizing the damage to your home’s foundation. Your plumbing expert can assist in the detection of a slab leak, so if in doubt have the plumber come out. Schedule service by calling (843) 627-2337 or contacting us online.
