What’s a Slab Leak?
A slab leak refers to a leaking pipe that is located under the concrete foundation or “slab” of your home. When you visualize just where the leak occurs, it’s easy to understand why they are difficult to detect and how they can cause damage behind the scenes as you carry on with your daily routine. There’s no way for a homeowner to see a slab leak starting, so it could be going on for some time before the signs reveal themselves.
Standard Signs of a Slab Leak
Over the course of days or possibly even weeks, you will begin to notice damp spots on your basement floor, the walls or carpets may be damp, you might see small patches of mold in the basement or your water bill might be unusually high. You may also feel damp, spongy ground in your backyard as the water makes its way up to the surface. Sometimes, it’s possible to hear the sound of gently running water if you have a slab leak and it’s particularly quiet in the basement.

Don’t Wait to Call
It’s common for some homeowners to sit back and wait to call a plumber when they first see signs of a slab leak, but this is never a good idea. You may want to weight your options or do some research on the subject, but it’s important to note that the day you saw signs of the leak is not the day the leak began. And the signs of water damage you’re seeing may not be the extent of the damage that has occurred. The sooner you call a plumber, the sooner the leak can be detected and repaired, saving you from a costly cleanup or possible renovations.
