How Do You Find a Leak Under the Slab

Slab leaks are notorious for going undetected until significant damage has occurred to the home. Not only does this cost homeowners more money, but it’s also more difficult to fix. However, homeowners can learn how to spot different types of slab leaks earlier, saving their homes from more damage.

Leaking Pipes

The easiest type of leak for homeowners to discover is a leak in the pipes under the slab. There are several signs that you have this kind of slab leak, including:

  • Damp spots on your floor (carpet will feel spongy)
  • Warm spots on the floor, which indicate a leaking hot-water line
  • An abnormal increase in your monthly water bill
  • The sound of running water even when no water is in use
  • Low water pressure
  • Cracks in the walls or floors

The Sewer Lines

Leaks in your home’s sewer lines are generally more difficult to detect than a pipe leak because they usually go unnoticed until there are visible signs of damage to your home. Keep a sharp eye out for domed, or raised, sections of flooring throughout your home. Check your foundation for heaving as well, which occurs when the slab swells so much that it lifts the entire building.

Less Visible Leaking

Some slab leaks are too difficult to detect without special equipment. Your plumber will use specialized cameras, listening devices or other tests to detect the leak and repair it as quickly as possible.

The sooner a slab leak is detected, the less damage it will cause, so it’s important to act quickly if you suspect that your home has a slab leak. If you notice any of the signs listed above, contact your plumber right away for leak detection services. The technician will be able to locate the exact source of the leak and recommend repair solutions.

Very Knowledgeable

I recently had several plumbing leaks repaired and couldn’t be happier with the prompt service I received from Parker and Sons. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, reasonably priced, and do quality work. I would definitely recommend them to my family and everyone. I would trust them to repair any leak in the house.

Amazing Service!!!

Amazing service!!! Called and came the same day within 2 hrs. Our toilet had to be re-fitted and snaked. They did a beautiful job on the re-fitting and got the large piece of plastic out of the toilet. Will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Great service, great people, hard to find these days!!!

Shakira C.

Excellent Service! We had some work done on our kitchen and Parker and Sons were able to come out to our house and help us with our remodel. Great guys and great service. I would recommend them to anyone needing a plumber service.

Brad B.

Great to Work With

Jim and his guys are great to work with. Had Parker & Sons come out to take a look at an AC unit at one of my rental properties. Unit is in the attic. Had to replace a coil on it and did a great job. Will definitely use again.

Jeff C.

Amazing Staff!

I have referred Parker and Sons to all of my customers and I would not think of referring anybody else. They have been great and very punctual. All of the plumbers and office staff have been amazing!

Miguel B.

Reasonable Prices

I was in good hands today with journeyman plumber Mark Rizley. He remained until all was better than before. He replaced a PRV and improved a mediocre repair recently done by another well known local company. The price remained reasonable despite the extra effort needed for the job. Well done Mark! Parker and Sons will be my first call in the future.

Todd D.

Fantastic Company!

This is a fantastic company with outstanding professionalism, quality of work, and customer service. While their prices are extremely competitive, their work doesn’t feel cheap like some of the companies you can hire of off Craigslist or on a FB yard sale page. This is a reputable company with proven work and licensed, skilled technicians.

Fair Prices & Excellent Work

Have used Parker & Sons 3 different times, once for a huge complex plumbing repair and twice for smaller jobs. Fair prices and excellent work/fast response time every time.
