What Is a Slab Leak and How Do I Detect One? - San Tan Valley, AZ

A Slab leak is a leak in a water line that runs below the concrete of a home. They are not as easily detected as other leaks that occur above the floor. However difficult, there are some signs to look out for. These include:


  1. Warm spots on the floor

  2. Wet spots on the floor

  3. As you walk, the floor is soft or bulges under your weight.

  4. Your water bill is consistently higher than usual or your water heater runs more often. (This is also a sign of other leaks in the home, not just slab leaks.)

  5. You are able to hear running water, although all water is turned off

  6. The walls or floors may have cracks

Never break a slab without a confirmation of a slab leak. Slab leaks can be found with trained technicians. It is impossible to find without a detailed process and expertise in the subject.
