How Do Slab Leaks Occur?

Slab leaks are leaks that occur underneath the concrete slab that makes up your home’s foundation. This makes them difficult to detect, which means they are likely to go unnoticed for some period and do some major damage to the foundation of your home. Slab leaks may occur due to any of several problems with the pipes that run underneath your foundation.

One possible reason for a slab leak is faulty pipe installation (which is why it is so important to call in skilled plumbers like ours for any plumbing installation). Older pipes may rust and corrode over time, or your pipes may have taken on some stress. This could happen as a result of thermal expansion in the hot water pipes, or a buildup of minerals in the water supply.

What Are the Signs of a Slab Leak?

So how can you find a leak if it is in a location you cannot see? For the most part, you won’t be able to see a water leak underneath your foundation without high quality, professional equipment. However, you may notice that your utilities have gone up. Or you may find cracks in the walls or floors due to stress on your home caused by the leak.

More likely, you’ll notice that the water pressure from some faucets or showerheads in your home has dropped, indicating that water is flowing out to some other part of the home. If it’s a hot water pipe leak, you could notice hot spots on the floor, and you may hear running water underneath your home. Call a plumber in Idaho Falls, ID when you notice any of these signs so that you can schedule water leak and slab leak detection right away.
