Signs of A Slab Leak
It is sometimes difficult to differentiate a slab leak from a few other plumbing problems, making diagnosis tricky at times. However, there are some symptoms that the crew at JJ Plumbing looks for to determine the nature of your foundational leak.
- Hearing running water sounds – Water silently travels through underground pipes. If you hear the sound of running water and don’t have a faucet running, this is a sign of a leak.
- Dampness or wet spots on your floor – You may see slightly darker spots, or even small puddles depending on the size and type of leak
- Spike in your water bill – Higher bills commonly indicate a leak somewhere in the home, but do not determine the source
- Mold or mildew sightings – When the foundation gets and stays moist for more than a few days, it creates a ripe breeding ground for microbes
- Cracks in the foundation – The foundation buckling and/or cracks appearing outside of your home or on interior floors indicates a foundational leak
