There are a few common signs of having a slab leak. However, 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 likely the culprit.
Other early detection signs of a slab leak are:
If you are experiencing these symptoms, a slab leak may be the cause, and you should investigate immediately.
If the pipes are installed incorrectly during a pool installation, there's a good chance that they won't be able to function properly once the concrete foundation settles.
Sometimes, slab leaks occur when the ground of your home starts to shift, your pipes are bound to experience a little pressure. However, while pipes are strong and can withstand a lot of things, too much pressure can really take a toll and cause them to leak.
Pipes naturally expand and contract as water flows throughout them, but doing so can cause trouble depending on installed pipes. For example, when pipes are exposed to concrete, gravel, or other pipes, friction may cause them to wear down or limit their room to expand. Pipe leaks can also occur as soil causes corrosion.
Besides these uncommon reasons for leaks, pipes can begin leaking under your home, deck, or other slab foundation from traditional plumbing issues. That's why it's important to make sure you have a professional identify the location as well as how severe the damage is before determining a repair method.
