What Causes a Slab Leak?
A slab leak can result from water or sewer pipes cracking or breaking that are buried under the foundation. A tree root growing through the line or the pipes are old and deteriorating because of the sludge building up inside the pipe. There are numerous reasons water lines or sewer lines can become damaged, but if not detected will eventually warp your foundation, creating shifts. Many times the cracked pipes are the culprit, resulting in water rising to the surface. Other common signs are:
- Warping in floors
- High water bills
- Unexplained wetness on floors
- Warm spots on floors
- Low water pressure
- Unexplained sounds of dripping or running water
- Soil expansion or swelling
