Undetected Slab Leaks
Many homes are equipped with copper lines. These pipes have plenty of great qualities, but they sometimes develop small holes, causing water to leak out and damage your home. An undetected leak will waste as much as 360,000 gallons of water per year. This will make for a pricey water bill, but the damage to your foundation and flooring is also a costly worry.
What Causes Slab Leaks to Develop?
As copper pipe ages, the protective lining within wears and eventually leaks. These pipes are meant to last 20-25 years, but certain factors significantly reduce their lifespan. Very hard or soft water and pipes too small for the velocity of the water traveling through them are risk factors. Another reason copper pipes may develop leaks is the soil in which they’re buried. If for whatever reason this soil shifts, the now unstable plumbing lines become prone to small cracks and leaks. These leaks can further destabilize the lines, causing further water seepages. If a leak is occurring under the slab, this can cause the slab to cave in, often breaking the plumbing lines beneath, flooding the home.
What Are The Signs of Leaking Pipes?
As a homeowner, it is vital to be vigilant in looking for signs of leaks. You can never be too careful when it comes to leaking pipes in your home, especially behind walls and under the concrete slab. There are some signs you can watch for to alert you that your pipes may be leaking. These include cracks in the foundation, a noticeable shift in the soil around your home, the sound of water hissing, gurgling, or running when no taps are turned on, and water stains on flooring.
If you suspect leaks beneath your slab, or if your foundation is already in need of repair, it’s time to call in an expert in the field to remedy the problem. Fixing leaks and repairing the damage needs to be done quickly so the damage does not escalate, causing you more costly repairs down the road, not to mention stress.
