What is a Slab Leak?
In order to understand just how troublesome a slab leak really is, you must first understand what, precisely, a slab leak itself is. A slab leak is a leak that develops anywhere under the concrete slab upon which your house rests. For obvious reasons, this location makes the detection of a slab leak a bit tricky. Even more so, it can make the repair of a slab leak, or any necessary pipe replacements, even trickier. The good news is that professional plumbers, such as those on our team, have the tools and training necessary to complete a successful slab leak detection. You don’t want to go into such a situation blindly, so let us find and service your slab leak for you.
Signs That You May Have a Slab Leak
While you may not be able to see, let alone access, a slab leak unassisted, there are plenty of warning signs that you may notice which can clue you into the fact that you are potentially dealing with such a leak. You just need to know what it is that you should keep an eye out for. Here are a few examples to keep in mind which may mean that there is a slab leak beneath your feet.
First of all, keep your ears open for the unexplained sound of running water. If you can hear water running, but you just cannot find a source of that sound, then it may be water running beneath your concrete slab. This can lead to a major amount of water wasted, so it is best to have the issue resolved as soon as possible. Remember, too, that a slab leak can involve your hot water lines as well as cold. This means that you may be wasting hot water as well, which will result in increased energy bills in addition to your water bills. If an area of your floor seems warmer than the rest, it is very possible that you are dealing with a hot water leak beneath your concrete slab. You may also see wet spots or water damage on your walls or floors. Whatever it is that tips you off, know that Tim Beil Plumbing is always here to deal with your slab leaks.
