Below are possible signs of a slab leak:
- There is a sudden increase in your water bill.
- Obvious presence of moisture and formation of mildew especially under the flooring and carpet.
- A strange sound similar to running water even if all sources of water has been turned off.
With the soil in Tampa Bay, the shifting on the foundation of your house can lead to the cracks and breaks in water pipes. Other causes of slab leaks may be due to corrosion or low-quality materials during the plumbing installation.
When it comes to the slab leak, we will start our service by confirming the presence of a leak. We generally start by using a pressure gauge that will be connected to your faucet. We will then monitor the movement on our gauge and identify if the level of pressure is affected. After we successfully confirmed the slab leak, we will then use state-of-the-art detection tools such as line locators and listening devices that will help us accurately determine the location of the leak and the magnitude of the problem.
Our slab leak repair services can then be conducted by creating a small opening in your slab. There are also some cases when we will recommend the rerouting of your water lines, especially if you want to prevent any damage to your expensive flooring materials.
