What Is A Slab Leak?
Any leak in a pipe that is located underneath a home’s concrete floor or foundation is considered a slab leak. These can lead to significant structural damage to the building and create an environment that promotes the growth of harmful mold and mildew, which can be hazardous to your family's health.
Any number of factors can contribute to the formation of a slab leak. These include poor construction, corrosion of the pipes, shifting soil, a buildup of scale and mineral deposits, or simply years of wear and tear on old pipes.
Signs That You May Have A Slab Leak In Your Home
Issues with pipes located under concrete can be quite difficult to detect, compared to those that occur inside your home. Some of the signs that you may spot that suggest that one exists include:
- Water pooling near your foundation
- The sound of water trickling
- The cost of your monthly water bill progressively going up
If you detect any of these symptoms, contact a professional plumber who is well versed in fixing slab leaks, like Baker Brothers Plumbing & Air Conditioning, to avoid any further significant damage to your home.
Repairing A Slab Leak
The first task will be to find the exact location of the leak. Using some highly sensitive technology that detects the sound of running water through walls, Baker Brothers Plumbing & Air Conditioning technicians can pinpoint where the problem is, thereby limiting how much cutting into the foundation will be required.
If the problem is not too extensive, we can complete a spot repair to the affected area. On the other hand, if the damage is more considerable, and the pipe in question is showing signs of age, it may be necessary to replace the entire length of the pipe.
No matter what the nature of the leak may be, you can count on us to address it quickly and with as little disruption to your home as possible.
