Here in San Diego, we experience earthquakes and aftershock from time to time, and this shifting in the ground below the foundation of our homes and businesses can put a lot of pressure on the concrete slab itself. The problem is, when the slab shifts or moves, it can cause the water supply pipe running underneath your home to crack or leak — which means water waste, water damage, and health hazards. These slab leaks can also occur as the result of house settling or natural shifts in the ground beneath the home or business.
Do you have a slab leak? The sooner you identify and address the problem, the better! Water damage can be costly and devastating, especially if major damage is done before the problem is located.
Here are some signs of a possible slab leak:
You can also test for a slab leak by turning off all faucets and watching the water meter needle closely. If the red needle is still moving, there’s a good chance you have a slab leak.
If you suspect a slab leak, the best thing to do is to call an experienced and licensed plumbing professional. These types of leaks can do serious damage to your home or business and property and should be repaired or rerouted ASAP.
