Understanding Slab Leaks and Their Impact on Your Home

In simple terms, a slab leak occurs when the water pipes beneath your home’s foundation (the "slab") develop leaks. These leaks can be caused by various factors, including shifting soil, corrosion, or poor installation. Although they may start small, slab leaks can lead to significant damage if left untreated.

Possible effects of a slab leak include:
  • Structural Damage: Water can erode the foundation, causing cracks and weakening the structural integrity of your home.

  • Mold and Mildew: Persistent moisture creates a perfect environment for mold growth, which can affect your family's health.

  • Increased Water Bills: A continuous leak can significantly raise your water bills.

  • Unpleasant Odors: Dampness under your home can lead to musty odors that permeate your living spaces.

How a Slab Leak is Fixed:
  • Detection: We use advanced tools such as electronic listening devices and thermal imaging to locate the leak accurately without unnecessary digging.

  • Accessing the Leak: In some cases, accessing the leak from outside or through walls is possible.

  • Repair or Rerouting: Once accessed, the damaged section of the pipe is repaired or replaced. In some cases, it may be more effective to reroute the plumbing entirely to prevent future issues.
