Our Plumbers Can Find and Fix Slab Leaks
In homes that do not have basements or crawl spaces, one of the most dreaded things is the slab leak: a water leak under the concrete slab foundation. It can cause plenty of damage if left without repair.
Here are some symptoms:
The sound of running water when no water should be running.
A hot spot on the floor could indicate a hot water line leak in your slab.
If you observe cracks in walls or floors, it could be damage from a slab leak.
Mildew or excessive moisture under carpets could indicate your slab is cracked and the pipes inside are leaking water.
High water bills could also indicate a slab leak. Although a high water bill could indicate a water leak behind the wall, or in your pool, plumbing under the slab is also suspect.
Once the leak has been located under the slab, your AttaBoy plumber will provide repair options, which may include:
Spot repair: open up the slab at the spot of the leak and repair leaking pipe. This option is cost effective for newer construction.
Repipe or Reroute: replace the entire line that was leaking. This is most effective for older plumbing systems that have a history of leaking.
In-place pipe coating: If the plumbing system has a series of small leaks that would be cost prohibitive or too inconvenient to dig up the slab, the in-place epoxy pipe coating could be the best option.
So if you think you have a slab leak, you know what to do…..Better Call AttaBoy! 317-522-0591
