Slab Leaks | Pt. 2 | Warning Signs

5/25/2022 (Permalink)

Water leaks onto a grey tile floor. The sooner you repair a slab leak, the less likely your home will suffer extensive damage.

Slab leaks can range in severity and tend to be more difficult to detect than other types of plumbing leaks. As a homeowner, it helps to be mindful of the subtle signs of a slab leak.

Common Slab Leak Warning Signs:

  • The sound of running under your floors, even when taps and plumbing appliances are off.
  • Carpets and floors are damp or wet without an explanation
  • A higher than typical water bill.
  • A decrease in your home’s water pressure.
  • Warped or buckling floorboards.
  • Standing water around your home's foundation.
  • Pooling water on the floor without a clear sign of where it's coming from.
  • A smell of mold, mildew, or mustiness.
  • An unusually warm spot on your floor.

If your home presents one or more of these warning signs, you’ll want to contact a professional plumber immediately. The sooner you begin repairs, the less likely your home will suffer extensive damage.
