What Causes Leaks
Slab or water pipe leaks occur when the water carrying pipes that run through or under your home break in any way. But what causes this to happen? There are many possible factors. For one, over time pipes wear and become old. Due to age or the lack of proper maintenance, pipes can build up corrosion which leads to decay, cracking, leaks, and holes forming.
Other key causes of slab leaks include excessively high water usage, poor quality pipes, improperly installed pipes, and improper construction. Some of the most common signs to watch for include cracks in walls or floors, mildew in carpets or floors, the noise of flowing water when all water is turned off, and a spike in your water bill.
The good news is that professionals at Absolute Plumbing can not only detect these issues, but we can pinpoint the exact problem location, perform the repairs or replacements, and ensure that the job was completed perfectly by conducting a follow-up inspection after services are completed.
