A crack or leak in the plumbing system which occurs under the concrete slab foundation of your home is called a slab leak. A slab leak can exist for quite some time before it is discovered. If you suspect a leak in your slab, take immediate measures to minimize future damage. Slab leaks will destroy your home’s foundation, furnishings and create unhealthy air quality inside your home if left untreated. Watch for the following signs, any of them can indicate a presence of a slab leak:
The sound of running water in spite of all the closed taps
Cracks in floors, walls or concrete slabs
Floor areas that have secluded hot or warm areas
Areas with mildew or damp areas
Excessively high water bills
