Slab Leaks Are Serious Trouble

Monday, October 30th, 2017

leaking-pipeWhat would you guess is the most common problem that homeowners run into with their residential plumbing systems? If you said “leaky pipes,” you’re right. With all of the piping that runs throughout homes, it is a clear testament to the quality of plumbing materials and techniques today that leaks only develop as infrequently as they do. Even so, a leak of some type is more or less inevitable. As we’ll discuss today, not all leaks are created equal.

Case in point: the slab leak. Now, we want to reinforce that there really is no such thing as a “minor” plumbing leak, as even minor leaks can waste a lot of water and wind up costing you a great deal of money over time. Hidden leaks, no matter how “minor,” can also do a lot of water damage to surrounding areas. But a slab leak is a different beast entirely. If you have any reason at all to suspect a slab leak in Carrollwood, FL, contact us right away.
