What Causes A Slab Leak?

Across Bulverde and other Texas communities, many houses are built with slab foundations. This building style uses a cement slab to give the house a solid structure to stand on, with plumbing and sewer pipes running underneath and up through the slab.

While these plumbing systems function out of sight behind walls and under flooring, they still require maintenance. If neglected, the pipes beneath your house could become corroded or damaged, causing a slab leak.

Soil expansion and contraction from the Texas climate is also a huge culprit behind slab cracks and leaks. Our team will get to the bottom of what’s caused your plumbing to leak so that we can repair the slab!

Signs You Have A Leak Beneath Your Home

While it is difficult to spot a slab leak before it’s caused obvious damage, there are signs you can be on the lookout for to mitigate the damage. Here are some signs you have a slab leak:

  • Unexplained increase in water bills — A sudden spike in your water bill without a corresponding increase in water usage
  • Warm or wet spots on the floor — Patches of warmth or moisture on your flooring, particularly in specific areas
  • Sound of running water — Hearing water running when all taps and appliances are turned off
  • Foundation cracks — Cracks in the walls, flooring or the foundation itself possibly caused by the water pressure from a slab leak.
  • Mold or mildew — Presence of mold or mildew under carpets or on the walls due to persistent moisture
  • Low water pressure — A drop in water pressure when using fixtures, indicating a possible leak under the slab

If these signs are happening in your home, reach out to Peppermint Plumbing. Our experts will get to work quickly to pinpoint the leak’s source and provide thorough repairs.

Professional Slab Leak Repair

When it comes to addressing slab leaks, Peppermint stands as your trusted partner. In fact, detecting and repairing slab leaks is a specialized service we often provide. Here’s how it typically works:

  • Leak detection — Our plumbers use advanced equipment such as electronic listening devices, thermal imaging cameras or pressure testing to accurately locate the leak beneath the slab.
  • Accessing the leak — Once the leak is located, your plumber will determine the best way to access it. This might involve breaking through the concrete slab to reach the damaged pipe.
  • Repairing the pipe — After accessing the leak, we’ll repair or replace the damaged section of the pipe. We can implement different repair methods, like pipe lining or pipe bursting to minimize disruption.

In cases where a slab leak has caused significant structural damage to the foundation, a foundation repair specialist might also need to be involved to address those issues. However, for the leak itself and the associated plumbing repairs, a plumber is the right professional to call.

With Peppermint Plumbing, your home receives the attention it deserves, restoring comfort and peace of mind. Choose us for professional slab leak repair services in Bulverde and Spring Branch.
