What are Slab Leaks?

Slab leaks are problems that occur as your pipes get older. These types of leaks occur under the foundation of properties, especially buildings that have foundations made from concrete. The ground underneath the foundation can shift and slowly give way over time, which can damage the pipes in the immediate area. These gradual changes can cause pipes to wear away, crack, or break -- which creates leaks. You may have a slab leak on your property if: 

The Floors Appear Damp or Warm

Mold or Mildew Has Developed under Carpeting

Standing Water Is Pooling around the Property

Your Water Bill Is Unusually High

There Is a Decrease in Water Pressure 

These plumbing problems are more common with properties that use copper pipes in the plumbing. However, it is important to note that leaks can happen with pipes made from any material. In any case, underground leaks are hard to detect. All too often, by the time a slab leak is discovered, it has already done damage to the property.
