Not Sure Of The Signs?
It may seem like it is impossible to detect a slab leak because it is underneath the slab of your home. The truth is that there are plenty of signs that you can look for that will help you to detect a slab leak. They are:
- The sound of running water. If you don’t have any water purposely running in your home, but you can hear it running, that is a sign of a slab leak. Water is running somewhere in your home, and it might be under the slab. You may want to check your faucets and any appliances that use water just to be sure, and if they are all completely turned off, that is when you know you have a problem.
- A hot spot. If there is an area on your floor that is unusually hot, that could also be a sign of a slab leak. It would indicate that your hot water line has broken in the slab. Maybe you haven’t noticed it but your pets have. If they always sit in a certain spot, it might be because it is so warm!
- Cracks. There are many reasons that your floors and walls could be cracked. A slab leak is one of those reasons.
- Mildew and moisture. If your carpet and other flooring feels moist, or if you notice mildew on the floor, it could be a sign that the pipes are broken in the slab.
