What is a slab leak?

A slab leak is a leak that has developed in the pipes running below the concrete foundation of your home. Since slab leaks are not always visible to the homeowner, they can go undetected for a longer period of time. A slab leak occurs when the pipes below a home’s foundation begin to leak. Slab leaks can lead to significant damage if left unattended.

 

What causes a slab leak?

 

Slab leaks can be caused by various reasons: inadequate construction, foundation shifts, abrasion, corrosion, and time.
