Can I Have a Home Foundation Leak and Not See It?
Yes, unfortunately. The term slab leak, also known as a foundation leak, refers to any leaking water underneath your concrete foundation. These infamous plumbing problems can go undetected for long periods of time and cause significant water damage to your property. It can also destroy your lawn and create foul odors in your piping system. Slab leaks can also breed mold and mildew growth that could impact your health if left unresolved.
Why Is My Water Bill So High?
Have you been noticing that your water bill is high without any excessive water usage? Maybe you have a water leak underneath the concrete of your home or business. If you hear running water in the building without any appliances or faucets turned on, chances are you might need professional slab leak detection and repair.
A slab leak can show itself through specific spots of the foundation floor feeling hot or cold (this could also be a sign of a sewer line leak). And of course, visible indicators like cracks in the base of the walls along the foundation and mildew growth all point to a slab leak.
