Beware of Slab Leaks in Your Home

One of the biggest problems plumbers encounter here in Salt Lake City, UT is the issue of slab leaks: leaks that occur in pipes buried under your foundation, or in some cases embedded within the foundation itself. A leak is nothing unusual for plumbers to repair, but with slab leaks, detecting and reaching it can prove supremely difficult… and the water can do a staggering amount of damage in the interim.

What Kind of Damage?

If water has time to work, it can be devastating: destabilizing the foundation of your home by creating cracks. That doesn’t happen overnight, of course, but since the slab leak takes place out of sight and mind, it can be months or even years before the problem is detected. By that time, the damage can be severe. Early detection is the key, followed by repair service from a trained plumber. Signs of trouble are subtle, but if you spot them early, you can save yourself a great deal of trouble. They can include:

  • Puddles around your foundation
  • Warm spots or cold spots in the concrete.
  • Unusually high water bills with no attendant cause
  • Reduced water pressure in one or more outlets.
  • Mold growth under carpets or in basements
  • The sound of dripping or running water with no apparent source.

Solutions

The ideal solution is to simply lay down a replacement pipe somewhere more easily reachable, where you don’t have to worry about the home’s foundation. That’s possible in many cases, but not all of them. If going around isn’t an option, the plumber will need to dig into the foundation itself to reach the leak and repair it. That’s why you need a properly trained plumbing service to do the job, who can work hand in hand with your homeowner’s insurance to get the job done properly.
