How do you know if you have a slab leak?
A slab leak is a type of water leak that occurs underneath your home’s foundation. Poor construction, water or ground corrosion of pipes, and ground movement will shift the foundation and result in pipe damage. The damage can seem minor at first, and may even go undetected. If the problem goes unnoticed, repairs can become costly.
So how can you tell if you have a slab leak? Check for the following:
- Unexplained water leakage from the foundation or inside the home
- Settling of the foundation around the home
- Sound of running water even if all faucets are off
- Hot or warm spots on your floor
- Cracks in the floors or walls
- Mildew or moisture under carpets
- Higher than normal water, gas, or electric bills
- Reduced hot water availability
- Noticeable reduction in water pressure
How can we help?
Your Pipe Wrench Plumbing technician is experienced in all of the latest repair technology.
Pipe rerouting is a technique that is often used to repair slab leaks. It involves running a new water line through the ceilings and walls of your home and replacing the leaking water line underneath the floor.
Epoxy restoration is another repair option. This method is often preferred over pipe rerouting because it does not require that removal or rebuilding of the water line. Epoxy restoration coats the opening with epoxy. Before we apply the epoxy, the pipe will be cleaned out. The epoxy is then applied to the inside of the whole pipe.
Repiping is another alternative. We may recommend this option if you live in an older home with an outdated plumbing system.
