Leaks In Your Plumbing System
What Are Some Indications of a Leak in Your Plumbing System?
● The sound of water running when fixtures are not being used
● Your carpets, floors, or ceilings are wet
● Water stains or a leak coming from a low point on the wall
● Hot water coming from a cold tap

Leaks Under Your Slab And Possible Causes
Soil contains can cause leaks under your slab. Electrolysis is the most one cause of a slab leak. Electrolysis can occur anytime, sometimes years after installation.
Another cause is piping of dissimilar metals. Piping that comes in contact with unprotected lines, rebar, electrical conduits or heating duct work may cause your water or sewer piping to leak. Friction from expansion and contraction can also cause the piping to become worn and begin to leak.
Other possible causes of a slab leak are kinked piping that was missed during installation or one that may have been accidentally damaged by a concrete worker or other contractor during the construction of your home. Over time leaks develop and should be repaired to prevent further damage to your home and property.
