Common Slab Leak Symptoms
As a homeowner or business owner, it’s important to keep an eye out for symptoms of a possible slab leak. Routinely inspect your property and contact a AAA plumbing professional if you notice any of the following slab leak symptoms:
- The sound of running water when all water is turned off
- A hot spot on the floor could indicate a hot water line leak
- Cracks in walls or flooring
- Mildew or excessive moisture under carpets could indicate your slab is cracked
- High water bills - Although a high water bill could indicate a water leak behind the wall or in your pool, plumbing under the slab is also suspect.
Finding Your Slab Leak
Breaking into a slab or pool deck without positive confirmation of a leak location is risky and unacceptable. Never let anyone dismantle your property just to search for leaks. Finding a slab leak demands a thorough inspection process requiring extensive technical expertise.
Locating leaks non-destructively requires the use of modern tools such as electronic amplification equipment and electromagnetic pipeline locators. With the proper equipment, leaks can be found and repaired with minimal disruption to property. In many cases, only a single floor tile needs to be removed and replaced.
With AAA Affordable Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, our highly trained technicians use our own non-invasive leak detection equipment to accurately locate the leak saving you time and money while avoiding unnecessary property damage.
Slab Leak Repair Options
Once the leak has been located under the slab, our leak specialist will recommend repair options. We aim for “Leak Detection Without Destruction” but, unfortunately the repair process will require breaking into the slab. No matter what, AAA Affordable Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning will strive to limit damage and utilize the least destructive method when repairing slab leaks.
