Top 7 signs of a slab leak
Slab leaks are among the most difficult leaks to notice. This is because they occur under the foundation of your home. To spot this type of issue, review our list of the top signs of water leaks. If you identify with one or more of these signs, contact a professional to evaluate your home.
High Water BillsWhen you have a leak, your water bill will be your first sign. This is because a leak can waste a large amount of water each day. While you may not notice any of the other indicators right away, it won’t take long for a sudden spike in your utility bill to make you do a further investigation.
Reduced Water Pressure
A majority of homeowners will notice when the water pressure in a shower or sink is lower than usual. In a large number of cases, decreased water pressure is caused by one or more water-dependent appliances running while you’re attempting to shower.
On the other hand, low water pressure may be caused by a water leak in your foundation. Our team of technicians offer exceptional slab leak detection and restoration services to homes and commercial facilities in areas of Texas such as San Antonio, Austin, Houston, Dallas, and Fort Worth. If you notice reduced water pressure in your home, contact a professional to prevent damage to your foundation and flooring.
Hot Spots On Your FloorNearly all slab leaks that happen in residential establishments occur in the hot water line. This may not seem significant, but it is. When hot water escapes your plumbing system, it will begin to warm the concrete, which will warm the floors of your home.
This, of course, is easier to detect when barefoot and while walking on linoleum, tile, or hardwood floors. If an area of your home has significantly warmer floors, it’s likely you have a slab leak that needs immediate repair.
Damaged FlooringAfter a slab has been leaking for a considerable amount of time, you’ll begin to see water damage. Sooner or later, you’ll notice your floors have water damage. Depending on the severity of your slab leak water damage, your floors may need to be replaced. Minimize expenses and contact a restoration company that will prioritize customer safety and satisfaction above all else.
Strange OdorSevere water damage can cause foul odors to form in your living space or business. When water seeps into the floors of your home, the moisture and warm temperature will create the perfect conditions for mildew and mold growth. As water continues to collect in your walls, insulation, and floors, the mold and odors in your home will become worse. Our technicians provide innovative slab leak detection, repair, and maintenance services in your area. If there is a constant musty smell in an area of your home, get in touch with a professional to perform an inspection for moisture damage.
Running WaterWater should only run when it’s in use. If you hear water flowing, and you’re sure it’s not being used, check the sinks and faucets of your home. After verifying the water is off head to the lowest level of your home and put your ear to the floor. If you hear water flowing under your floors, you have a slab leak. For professional slab leak detection, contact a water damage specialist.
Pooling WaterWhen leaking slab water has nowhere else to go, it will travel above (to your floors) or out (to your yard). If you can’t explain why pools of water surround your home, there’s a chance you have a leak. Before you contact a technician, make sure the residual water isn’t from a leaking hose or nearby appliance (air conditioner).
Top Causes of a Slab Leak
The slab or foundation beneath your house can start to deteriorate due to pipes that were damaged during installation. You may also have low-quality pipes that were damaged due to abrasive and high water flow. While mostly in older homes, copper plumbing is more susceptible to corrosion and leakage. Our contractors offer slab leak repair and detection services in areas of Texas such as Houston, Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, and San Antonio. Give our team a call by phone to receive assistance with damaged pipes. Our technicians will perform an inspection of your pipes to determine if the water leak was caused by an improper installation in the past.
There are various forms of pressure that can impact the operation of your plumbing system:
- Soil erosion
- Underground stream
- Soil shift
If not assessed right away, sudden pressure changes can cause severe flooding and water damage.
Poor Water Quality
Environments with hard water (high in acid) as well as excessively soft water (high in alkalinity) can corrode pipes much faster than normal. If you’re not sure what the pH level of your water is, look for a green or blue stain in your tub or sink. This, along with a chlorine-type odor, is caused by high incredibly acidic water.
If your pipes brush up against gravel, concrete, or other harsh materials, the constant friction may cause your plumbing to wear (and leak). This is especially true for hot water plumbing. Due to the expansion of warm pipes, they’re more likely to rub against surrounding concrete or gravel.
