Though uncommon, slab leaks are particularly dangerous plumbing problems due to their location. Slab leaks are water line leaks that occur under your home’s foundation. Old, corroded pipes are often more prone to developing leaks.
If not addressed in time, the leak can eventually cause the soil surrounding the water line to shift further away from the slab foundation; this can then cause the foundation to settle or crack, resulting in structural and water damage.
Symptoms of slab leaks look a lot like indoor water leaks. You will notice an inexplicable spike in your water bill, constantly hear the sound of running water, and experience low water pressure.
Additional signs that point to a slab leak specifically include:

Slab leaks are handled in two parts. The first thing to do is perform leak detection. Once we know where the leak is located, we are able to move forward with repairs. This careful approach ensures accuracy and limits damage to your property as much as possible.
The location of the affected area will give us a better idea of the extent of the leak. You’ll need to have someone trace your underground water lines using a digital pipe locator. This tells them the depth of your pipes and the route it takes.
Once the company has traced your pipeline and has pinpointed the exact location of the leak Bell can then begin the process of repairing the leak.

We can approach slab leak repair in several ways. The best approach will depend on the overall state of your water line (is it severely deteriorated?), how easy it is to access the pipes, and the extent of the leak.
The most accurate method of repair will involve opening your flooring and foundation to access the affected area. Although it will require a bit of construction work and may seem invasive, it is the most direct and accurate way to repair slab leaks.
Alternative methods include pipe lining and pipe rerouting. We will discuss the most appropriate method with you to make sure your slab leak problem is safely and efficiently resolved.
