When the plumbing starts leaking water below a concrete foundation, it is called a slab leak. It is not always easy for a homeowner or property manager to realize they have a slab leak. Out of sight, out of mind. But ignoring a slab leak can lead to costly repairs and even dangerous conditions.
There are a variety of reasons why slab leaks occur. The most common culprits are corrosion and ground movement. Corrosion, from the pH and chemicals in the water causes small pinhole in the pipes. Any type of settling or shifting in the soil can cause pipes to crack and even break.
Slab leaks can be especially difficult to detect. It takes advanced equipment and experienced technicians to ensure the source of the leak is detected. The last thing you want is to dig up the floor and find out that’s not where the leak was located.
