Slab Leak Detection And Repair
A slab leak – is the industry and insurance term for a leak in one of the water lines running below the concrete floor of your home.
What causes slab leaks?
Because slab leaks are hidden from view it’s important to be aware of the problem signs.Slab leaks are caused by many of the same factors that create leaks in other pipes around your property.
While your outdoor pipes may be well-insulated from freezing temperatures, extreme conditions can still cause the water in your slab foundation’s pipes to freeze and lead the pipes to rupture.
When the ground beneath your home settles, the foundation itself may shift. This slight movement may be enough to damage the pipes and create a leak.
WEAR AND TEAR:
Normal wear and tear or deterioration related to age may also cause damage to pipes in your slab.
