What is a slab leak?

In short, slab leaks are plumbing leaks that occur in the water pipes below your home. Over time, these leaks can cause serious damage, making it very important to identify and fix them quickly. It's easy for slab leaks to go unnoticed, which is why it's important to schedule routine checks for them with your local plumber.

Can a slab leak cause foundation problems?

Yes. A slab leak is a serious plumbing problem that can damage the foundation of your house. If left unaddressed, a slab leak can cause extensive problems, including damage to the structural integrity of your home and its foundation. If you suspect you have a slab leak, schedule a slab leak detection and repair services in San Diego as soon as possible.

Signs of a Slab Leak

Slab leaks occur below your home (in the foundation). Because of this, knowing how to tell if you have a slab leak isn’t as simple as checking for visible water. Instead, you’ll have to be aware of other indications that there’s something wrong with your home’s plumbing.

How can you tell if you have a slab leak?

  • Unexplained increase in your water bills
  • An odd hot spot in your floor or a single room that is humid or warm
  • Standing water moss or mud around your home’s perimeter
  • Cracks in the walls or ceilings
  • The sound of water running when all of your fixtures are turned off

By catching a slab leak early on, we can help you prevent extensive damage to your home or property. While it may seem daunting to invest in slab leak repair initially, this important task will ultimately save you considerable time, money, and stress.

How to Identify Other Types of Water Leaks

Detecting a Water Leak Infographic

Check your water bill.

The first thing to do if you suspect you have a water leak is to check your water bill. If your water bill spikes, it may be a clue there is an issue with a leak somewhere. The next step – and one of the easiest ways to check for a leak – is to examine all the fixtures in your home. This includes underneath cabinets, in the bathroom, the laundry room, kitchen sink, water heaters, etc.

Check your toilet tanks / flappers for the source of the leak.

To check and see if your toilet is running, buy some dye tablets at the hardware store. Drop one in the tank of your toilet and wait about ten minutes. If the dye enters the bowl of the toilet, you may have a leaking flapper in the tank.

Use a pressure gauge.

You can purchase a pressure gauge at the hardware store and test the overall pressure of your home’s water supply. Make sure no one is using any water supply in your house, then go outside and attach the gauge to the main spigot. Let the water reach its normal pressure. Turn the water off completely and wait for ten minutes. If the pressure moves from its “normal” place, you may have a leak.

Check your water meter.

Finally, you can check your water meter for signs of a leak. Typically, your meter is located near your property line. Make sure no one is using any water fixtures in the house, then mark the needle on the meter outside. If the needle continues to run, you may have another type of leak in your home.

A Musty Odor in Your Home

The only moldy thing in your home should be the cheese in your fridge! When leaks go untreated, they can lead to mold growth. To find the source, follow your nose and look where the scent is the strongest.

Wet Spots on the Floor

If there is a sudden warm or wet spot on the rug, you may have a leaking pipe. Left unattended, these types of leaks could cause structural damage.
