Why Are Slab Leaks a Problem?

Slab leaks are a problem for two reasons. The first is access, since reaching the spot of the leak may be difficult or impossible due to the concrete nearby. Once the leak is detected, it can be dealt with either by drilling into the concrete safely and re–pouring once the repairs are complete, or simply running a new length of pipe around the foundation.

The second is the long–term damage it can do to your Tampa home. Slab leaks often go undetected for months or even years, resulting in cracks to the foundation of your home and eventually creating a crisis that could destroy the building. The sooner you can spot a slab leak and call in the pros at Experts Plumbing Services, LLC for slab leak repair services, the better.

Detecting Slab Leaks

Slab leak detection is the first part of the equation, before slab leak repair can take place. Unfortunately, it falls to you, the Tampa homeowner, to notice the trouble and call in a slab leak repair service. Signs are subtle, but you should be able to spot them with careful checking. They can include (but are not limited to):

  • Sounds of running water in strange places.
  • Warm spots or cold spots on the concrete.
  • Water bills that are inexplicably higher than normal.
  • Strange puddles around the foundation.
  • Cracks or damage in the concrete.
