What is a slab leak?
A slab leak occurs in the pipes contained underneath the concrete slab of your home’s foundation. While these leaks are often difficult to notice at first, certain signs should alert you to the problem.
Slab leaks are particularly dangerous due to their location in the foundation. Their potential for extensive water damage is significant, so all leaks should be addressed immediately upon discovery.
How do slab leaks form?They often occur due to the reaction between the copper piping and the concrete slab. This can cause the pipes to flake and become brittle, making them prone to leaks. Ground shifting can also cause slab leaks to occur as the pipes buried in the foundation shift and change position.
