There are many reasons why a concrete slab can leak or even burst, resulting in structural damage, high water bills and potential health hazard.

Atlanta Area Slab Leaks; How to Find and Repair Them - Leak Detection Blog | Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - 1(18)Over time weather can cause the soil to shift, putting a strain on the pipes and plumbing systems resulting in leaks.

Copper pipes react with the chemicals in the water, which can cause pinhole leaks.

The water supply going into your home or business is pressurized and over time can make the pipes vulnerable to leaks or breaks.

Poor or inadequate construction plays a big role with water leaks. Instead of copper, some newer constructions have pex lines which are left exposed to rodents,who can chew small holes in them.

Soil and sand are permeable to water, creating rust in older pipes, which makes them more susceptible to leaks.

If left untreated slab leaks can compromise the integrity of the foundation and eventually your home or business, not to mention the health issues from the mold and mildew.
