Signs You May Have a Slab Leak

There are many different signs to look out for when it comes to having a slab leak.

These eight signs will help you identify whether or not you have a slab leak:

  • There is a sudden increase in your water bill.
  • A pool of water where it shouldn’t be.
  • Warped hard flooring or damp carpets.
  • Obvious presence of moisture and formation of mildew especially under the flooring and carpet.
  • Your water pressure is lower than usual.
  • Your hot water heater is constantly running.
  • A strange sound like running water even if all sources of water has been turned off.
  • Parts of the floor are suddenly hot.

With the soil in the Tampa Bay area being so soft, the shifting on the foundation of your house can lead to the cracks and breaks in water pipes. Other causes of slab leaks may be due to corrosion or low-quality materials used during a plumbing installation.

The On Time Plumbing Services Approach

When it comes to the slab leak, we will start our service by confirming the presence of a leak. We start by using a pressure gauge and connected it to your faucet. Using the pressure gauge, we then monitor the movement on our gauge and identify if the level of pressure is affected. After we successfully confirmed the slab leak, we will then use state-of-the-art detection tools such as line locators and listening devices that will help us accurately determine the location of the leak and the magnitude of the problem.

Our slab leak repair services can then be conducted by creating a small opening in your slab. There are also some cases when we will recommend the rerouting of your water lines, especially if you want to prevent any damage to your expensive flooring materials.
