Why Do Slab Water Leaks Occur?

Why would plumbing safely encased in inches of concrete crack or leak? Well, there are many scenarios that could wear down your plumbing leading to a catastrophic pipe failure. The most common cause is corroded pipes. The chemicals in the concrete react with cast iron or galvanized steel pipes leading to steady corrosion that could finally eat through the pipes.

Other causes include:

  • High water pressure
  • Chemically-tainted water
  • Poor pipe installation
  • Chemical drain cleaners

How to Tell If You Have a Slab Leak

Once the pipes break or crack, the water begins seeping into the surrounding concrete slab. The biggest challenge for any Gaithersburg slab leak detection and repair service is timeliness. Slab leaks often go unnoticed for a while—weeks or months, if small enough. The alternative symptoms that you should always be on the lookout for if you have a slab leak in your Montgomery County home are:

  • An increased dampness and mold growth at unheated areas
  • Reduced water pressure
  • Cracks on your walls and floors
  • Unexplainable high water bills
  • Moist baseboards, wet floors or carpets
  • The sound of running water even when all taps are off

Since it is hard to pinpoint a slab leak on your own, it is always advisable to call in the professional to do thorough inspections after ruling out any other obvious leaks. To help minimize damage, you can always shut off the water supply at the mains (the outside valve) to prevent further damage as you wait for our Gaithersburg slab leak repair specialists to spring into action.
