Do I Have a Slab Leak Around my Florida Swimming Pool

Do you suspect you have a slab leak around your swimming pool? If so, you need to take your suspicions seriously! Letting a slab leak go undetected and unrepaired could lead to significant problems. Early detection is critical. Read on to learn what a slab leak is, signs of a slab leak, and how to determine if you have a slab leak around your Florida swimming pool.

What is a Slab Leak?

A slab leak is a water or sewer leak that is under a concrete slab. Often a slab leak refers to a leak under the foundation of a home; however, it can also be a leak that is under the concrete slab around your swimming pool. This type of leak is usually the result of deteriorating pipes that start to leak. When a slab leak goes undetected, it can lead to erosion in the ground and deterioration in the concrete slab.  

Do I Have a Slab Leak?

There are a few tell-tale signs of having a slab leak. One of the first and most eye-opening signs may be a significant rise in your water bill. If your water bill has skyrocketed and your water usage has not changed, a slab leak is most likely the culprit.

 

Other early detection signs of a slab leak are:

  • A decrease in you water pressure.
  • A constant sound of water running.
  • A damp spot on your cement that doesn’t seem to dry up.
  • A crack in the concrete.

If you are experiencing these symptoms, a slab leak may be the cause and you should investigate immediately.

How to Find a Slab Leak

As mentioned earlier, early detection of a slab leak is critical. If you are still uncertain if you have a slab leak, an easy way to determine it is to use your water meter. Make sure you turn off all your water-using appliances and record the number on your water meter. If you do not use any water and the water meter number increases, you have your evidence of a slab leak.
