Slab Foundation Leaks

What Are Slab/Foundation Leaks?

A “Slab leak” is an industrial term used to describe leaks that develop under the concrete foundation of a building. These leaks are usually caused by deteriorating or disrupted water and sewer lines that can break due to a variety of factors. Neglected slab leaks can cause serious problems, including wall and foundation cracks, high water bills, bad odors, and uneven floors. Even worse, this could potentially cause your building to shift and sink. Louisiana Leak Detection can help you spot a slab leak so that you can take the appropriate corrective measures.

Causes Of Slab Leaks

There are many causes for slab leaks. Knowing the causes could potentially help you prevent leaks from happening in the future.

Poor Installation

Slab leaks can potentially be a result of poor workmanship during the installation process. If the pipes were dented, kinked, or bent when installed, there’s a chance the weak spots wore out over time and started a leak.

Corrosion & Abrasion

Time combined with corrosion and abrasion can also cause slab leaks. The risk is especially high in hot water pipes due to their nature to expand and contract with the rise and fall of temperature. Water quality is another factor that can affect your pipes. For example, hard water with an excessively high or excessively low mineral count can also corrode pipes.

External Pressures

Earthquakes, ground shifts, and soil erosion can also be a cause of damage to your pipes. Although pipes are generally engineered to withstand these forces, they’re prone to wear down over time as they move against surrounding soil rocks and concrete.

Signs Of A Slab Leak

Signs Of A Slab Leak at Your Property

A slab leak typically is not visible, which makes it hard to pinpoint. Some early detection tips include:

  • A sudden spike in your water bill.
  • The sound of running or dripping water when pipes aren’t being used.
  • Signs of moisture or mildew under carpeting.
  • Standing water around the perimeter of the building.
  • Cracks in the baseboards and walls.
  • Unusually low water pressure.
