What are the signs of a slab leak?

Signs of a slab leak include:

  3. Moisture or pooling water: Unexplained wet spots on floors can be a telltale sign.
  4. Cracks in floors or walls: Water from a leak can cause structural damage.
  5. Warm spots on the floor: These can indicate a hot water line leak.

A Slab Leak Is A Foundational Threat To Your Home

In the best-case scenarios, a leak in your slab can cause bad smells throughout your home, impact your water pressure, or increase your water bill. Bear in mind, that these are the best-case scenarios. On the other end, they can cause catastrophic damage to your home - cracks in your foundation, uneven floors, walls splitting and they could even make your home shift or sink. If you suspect you've got a slab leak, we can't stress it enough - do not delay. Every minute you wait to get it fixed is another chance for it to cause irreparable harm to your home.

How Do You Repair A Slab Leak?

With the soil here in Tampa Bay, the shifting of the foundation of your house can lead to the cracks and breaks in water pipes. Other causes of slab leaks may be due to corrosion or low-quality materials used during the initial installation.

When it comes to the slab leak, we will start our service by confirming the presence of a leak. We generally start by using a pressure gauge that will be connected to your faucet. We will then monitor the movement on our gauge and identify if the level of pressure is affected. After we successfully confirm the slab leak, we will then use state-of-the-art detection tools such as line locators and listening devices that will help us accurately determine the location of the leak and the magnitude of the problem.

Our slab leak repair services can then be conducted by creating a small opening in your slab. There are also some cases when we will recommend the rerouting of your water lines, especially if you want to prevent any damage to your expensive flooring materials.
