Slab leaks are caused by copper or other piping becoming corroded from certain soil and water conditions. Repipe Specialists permanently solves this problem by rerouting new high quality copper plumbing above ground, preventing any future corrosion. And as with all our repipe jobs, it is guaranteed for life.
How do I know if I have a Slab Leak?
Do you have water leaking through your foundation?
If you can physically see water coming through the foundation, you have a serious problem on your hands that needs to be fixed without delay. Foundation leaks can lead to property damage, mold and contaminants. Not to mention the cost of repair, which will grow exponentially over time if left in disrepair. Contact Repipe Specialists to assess your needs and provide a free estimate.
Do you hear water running even when no faucets are on?
Often you can hear a leak before you actually spot it with your own eyes. Sometimes water will be trapped within the cracks and pores within the slab before it exposes itself to the surface. We’ve had many calls from concerned homeowners regarding a slab leak that they can hear but are not sure where it is coming from. More often than not, it turns out to be a slab leak that requires a repipe.
Does your water meter show water running when water is turned off, or show leaks with the meter’s leak detector?
If water is being registered in use when you are not actually using it, further investigation is required. Some water meters feature a leak detection alert. If you encounter either of these symptoms with your water meter, check all your connections and seals around bathroom plumbing. Make sure the ceiling is not showing water damage from a second floor. If none of those seem to be the issue, contact us for an assessment and free estimate to fix the problem.
Do you have unusually high water bills?
Monitoring your utility bill to spot irregularities or spikes in water usage is a great way to check your overall water consumption level. If you notice a drastic spike in how much water you are paying for, there may be other contributing causes such as a slab leak.
Have your neighbors had a slab leak?
When neighborhoods and major groups of structures are constructed together, they are often made out of the same materials and installed with the techniques that are limited by the technologies of their time. Homes built over 20 years ago share the same tendency to develop a slab leak, so if your neighbor has encountered a slab leak, it may be just a matter of time until you inherit the same problem!
