Despite what some believe, a slab leak is a dangerous and serious plumbing problem. With the leak being under the house, some may feel that “out of sight, out of mind” is an appropriate course of action. But what many don’t realize is that if there is water draining under your foundation, it will carry dirt away with it and thus change the structural integrity of your home. At A&A Plumbing, we have the knowledge and resources to handle your toughest slab leak problems.
Signs of Slab Leaks
Slab leaks can often be difficult to spot due to the fact that the pipes are in the walls and floors of your home. However there are still some warning signs.
- A higher than normal water bill
- Mold growing on walls or floor
- Water pooling near the foundation
- Water stains on the floor or walls
- Hot or cold spots on the walls or floor
- Running water sound coming from your walls
If you experience any of these things, you may have a slab leak and should call in the professionals at A&A Plumbing as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
Most of the main causes of slab leaks has to do with the pipes. If the pipes become old and begin to corrode, they can spring a leak. If the temperature in the ground changes, the water in the pipes can expand, causing it to rub on the rebar or concrete and begin to wear. If your home has experienced an earthquake, it’s also possible that the pipes shifted or cracked, causing a leak to form.
