Signs of A Slab Leak
It is sometimes difficult to differentiate a slab leak from a few other plumbing problems, making diagnosis tricky at times. However, there are some symptoms that the crew at Palmerio Plumbing LLC looks for to determine the nature of your foundational leak.
- Hearing running water sounds - Water silently travels through underground pipes. If you hear the sound of running water and don't have a faucet running, this is a sign of a leak.
- Dampness or wet spots on your floor - You may see slightly darker spots, or even small puddles depending on the size and type of leak
- Spike in your water bill - Higher bills commonly indicate a leak somewhere in the home, but do not determine the source
- Mold or mildew sightings - When the foundation gets and stays moist for more than a few days, it creates a ripe breeding ground for microbes
- Cracks in the foundation - The foundation buckling and/or cracks appearing outside of your home or on interior floors indicates a foundational leak
Palmerio Plumbing LLC's Process for Slab Leak Repair
Depending on the extent of the problem, a more extensive and invasive solution may be necessary. Your plumbing technician from Palmerio Plumbing LLC will discuss the problems and possible solutions and will devise a plan of attack that will solve the issue in the least invasive and most cost-effective way.
- First, your Palmerio Plumbing LLC team will identify the source of the leak
- Next, we'll cut into the foundation and fix the leaking pipe
- If the pipe shows signs of corrosion or extensive wear, repiping may become necessary
- Pipe coating may be used for pipes that can not be easily repaired or replaced. This method uses an epoxy coating on the inside of the pipe
