Slab leaks under a home can lead to costly repairs if they are not properly detected and corrected. If the slab for your home has begun to settle, then the soil may be eroding under your house due to a slab leak. A leak in the plumbing under your slab can be repaired by hiring an experienced plumbing company.

Symptoms of a Slab LeakSlab-Leak-Repair-300x199

A common symptom of leaking under a slab is the sound of running water when no water is being used. Your floor may also have a warm spot that is due to a leak in a hot water pipe. You may also see a crack on the walls or on different areas of the floor. Cracks result from a void under the slab due to a leaking water pipe. Another symptom of a slab leak is an abnormally high utility bill.

The costs of Lost Water

A leak under your slab can be worse than a dripping faucet. This means that you could be losing three to four gallons of water a day. If you live in a city with municipal water, then the cost of sewer use is often tied to water use. If you compare utility bills from previous months, then any significant increase is a sign of a possible slab leak.

Detecting a Slab Leak

The old method of breaking into a concrete slab to find a leak is no longer preferable. New methods for finding a slab leak are available that include the use of sound amplification equipment and electromagnetic detectors to find a pipe buried underground. Minimal destruction to the slab is then used to repair a leak or bad section of pipe. If the floor is tiled, then only a single tile typically needs to be removed.

Leak Repair Options

A leak repair specialist has a variety of options for repairing a slab leak once it is detected. The most widely used method is a spot repair. This involves drilling a small hole at the location of the leak and making necessary repairs. Another option is to re-pipe the line. Re-piping is the process or replacing all the pipes that are leaking.
