Slab Leak Detection and Repair in Naples, FL

A pervasive plumbing problem that can affect any home, no matter its age, is the pipe leak. Even the best piping material can suffer from leaks due to abrasion and reactions with chemicals in the water. One type of pipe leak that poses a particularly difficult problem, both for detection and repair, is the slab leak. This kind of leak occurs in a home’s foundation, and can create extensive water waste, energy waste, and structural damage.

How to Tell You May Have a Slab Leak

This is the first thing people think when they hear about slab leaks. How can you know you need to have professional slab leak detection services if the leaking pipe is buried beneath a granite foundation? The answer: you need to know the warning signs. Below are a few of them.

  • Odd behavior from the water heater: Why would a water heater act strangely because of a slab leak? The reason is the majority of slab leaks (approximately 80%) occur in the hot water lines in the foundation, which are more likely to wear down because of heat expansion and contraction. Loss of hot water will make the water heater turn on at times when it normally shouldn’t.
  • A rise in water and energy bills: Even a small slab leak will waste significant amounts of water, and this will be reflected in your energy bills. The extra strain on the water heater (which accounts for the largest energy use in a home) will also cause energy bills to rise.
  • The sound of running water: If you hear water running in the lower parts of your home when there is no tap open, it may be from a leak in the foundation.

Once you suspect a slab leak, you can make this simple test: Check the level of the water meter, then don’t use any water in the house for an hour. Re–check the water meter; it it’s risen, you have a leak. Time to call on our plumbers.
